Everyone at some point in their life has tough times. Face the changes and difficult decisions required. Unleash your courage on the situation, discipline yourself to do what needs to be done, as many times as necessary, until it is done. Leave the cynicism and complaining to someone else. Don’t be one of the people who wallow in self pity… asking why did this happen to me… it happened, that is all… deal with it. This is the time to remember your blessings and forget the worries, time to forget the worries and fears, and remember the things you have been blessed to have. Bring your dream out from hiding, feed it, nurture it, keep it alive.
Get ready to challenge your fears and doubts. Take some risks… resolve to persist and make an effort. No more waiting for one day to start living your dreams…TODAY IS THAT DAY!! Begin where you are with what you have. BE BRAVE!! Sure you’ll bump into challenges. Refuse to let it stop you. How you respond to the challenges of life determines who you are at your core… Respond with confidence and faith
Ralph Wald Emerson stated, “what we fear is usually what we most need to do.” Keep moving forward, sure you’ll make mistakes, but don’t quit, take action every day. Leave the best of you in each day. Have no regrets. Save nothing. Sometimes to the outside person, small consistent actions might not seem like much, and might look like you are not getting anywhere. This is why it is crucial that you know where you are going. Declare a clear goal. This will give you the confidence and faith to keep going.
Sure you might have messed things up in the past, or so far off course from achieving the goal or living the life you really want to live, that it just seems impossible. You can turn things around. You can rewrite your story today. Everyday gives you the opportunity to begin again. Challenges will come, sometimes circumstances beyond your control. Activate your will. You have a will! It’s not the circumstances, but your attitude, mindset and willingness to gain the skills required and to keep moving forward. You’ve got what it takes!
Where your attention lies, is where your success flows. You will get more of whatever you focus on, good or bad. Moment of truth time – are you putting your attention more on the things you want more of in your life, or on what you fear? Decide today to take the actions, the beliefs and the mindset that support what you want out of life. If you are producing results you don’t want, checkin in with yourself, answer honestly. Ask yourself if you are truly putting your attention and taking courageous action towards what you want. Have you identified what factors are key to success in getting what you want? Don’t allow yourself to be lazy! Push yourself, do some heavy lifting in the thinking department. Perhaps you’ll need to approach things again from a different angle, or require specialized help, but this is certainly not time to claim fatigue, maintain the momentum, keep going.
