I’ve been seeing a lot of posts lately about how this or that went wrong, I’ve had some hard things happen also. But though it all what I’ve noticed this time is that I’m not letting it drag me down. We all have so many things that are going wrong or bad in life and in the world. Then you have the usual problems like who can you or I trust. The world has gotten very selfish and we are finding it harder to reach our goals everyday… But what I think is different this time is that I’ve started changing my mind, and in turn my life is changing! I started wondering what successful people were doing? They have the same 24 hour period in their day that I do. So why were they achieving their dreams and I wasn’t? Were they better than me? Luckier than me? Maybe it was just that they had more money or caught the right break in life?! But sooner or later we have to take that long look in the mirror and admit that we hold our destiny in our own hands. It doesn’t matter what excuses or lies we tell ourselves. The truth is that there are a lot of people who had nothing and just said to themselves that they were tired of living like they were. They made a conscious choice to make a change in their lives and that change in every case was changing how they were thinking. Nothing is going to happen until we decide to change our minds and then put that change into action! Is it easy? NO! but it can be done. We just have to want it bad enough. There is a reason that they call successful people the 1%, They are the ones willing to do whatever it takes to get the results and reach their goals. We all like to say that we can do whatever we put our minds to! In other words, we like to brag! but how many of us really are willing to do whatever it takes to get to where we want to be? Judging from the posts that I’ve been reading, not a lot of us. When you finally realize that you are the only one who can help you achieve your own goals. There is no magic person that’s going to want it like you do and no one is going to give it to you. That’s a romantic notion that we choose to believe in because it makes us feel warm and fussy. In other words we like to blow sunshine up our own DAIRYAIRS!!!
We just have to decide to get it done and not care what anyone else thinks about it. Because in the end, The people who are around us want us to stay with them and not leave them for better things. They do not want us to fail Consciously but they are in their comfort zone and they haven’t changed their minds yet in order to change their lives. Forget everything you’ve ever learned about success. It used to be that you would go to college and then get a good job and be loyal and work for 40 years then you’d retire and live happily ever after. Those days are long gone. Just ask any College grad?! I have and it’s not good. I’ve made the decision that I’m going for it and going to go to the top of this mountain or I’m going to die trying. Either way I’m not coming back. Will I try and fail? YES! but the difference is I won’t give up. I’ll keep going until I make it to where I want to be or till my time here is through! The cool part about this attitude is that I know that even if I run out of time, Others will see me going for it and maybe that will inspire them to keep going. Look at Mark Hughes! He’s not with us anymore but look at the lives that he continues to touch to this day! Now that’s a legacy anyone could be proud of.
