For sure, achieving success is glamorous but remember that its road is neither shiny nor paved in a hurry.
The want to succeed is often expressed and held in the heart of many, but the need to succeed is expressed by few.
We are all free to want, but our zeal to succeed must be fueled by our driving need. Remember that a need is something that is vital for your survival (such as food and shelter), whereas your want is simply something that you would like to have.
Success takes the whole nine yards and more. Always ask yourself, why do I need to succeed in this? Is it vital to my well-being?
Will failure in this pursuit be detrimental to you or is your wish to do this just one of the notches to add to your list of achievements?
Holding on to that hungry need serves to drive you, that even when you fall down today, you’ll get up tomorrow and keep going.
No one gets a mouthful of food by picking between another person’s teeth.
As I sat in a reflective mode of the things that I need to do, this old adage that my dad used to say sprouted in my mind and it was just as if I heard him repeat ‘no one gets a mouthful of food by picking between another person’s teeth.’
We sit and plan for things that we would do in future and sometimes from afar, we look at those who are doing things that we hope to do and the time just keeps ticking by.
We can learn from others, but when we don’t put our learnings and experience to use, it becomes a futile effort.
Someone could take crumbs from their table and give to another, but it would still remain crumbs that are given when the other person is inclined to do so.
It’s commonly said that when you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Living a successful life that you want requires conscientious steps to building the life that you want and like every builder worth his salt, you need your master blueprint to serve as your compass in your journey through living that successful life that you seek.
Your blueprint will make you more productive, progressive, inspired and fulfilled.
How to create your blueprint and what it does for you. Connect with me on my Vlog let’s talk.
At many points in time in our lives, we struggle with doubts and this can balloon into fear which stalls our progress.
No one lives doubt-free. It questions our courage. It questions our passion and our goals. As a matter of fact, when we stop having doubts about our goals, we have to check that we are not settling in that dreaded comfort zone where nothing happens.
How do we overcome these doubts and go on to achieve those things that we desire? Here are simple everyday ways of dealing with your doubts.
I’ve noticed that the greatest difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is not about luck, talent, intelligence, opportunity, resources. These factors are contributing factors to success, but it’s the belief that they can make their goals happen that makes the difference.
If you don’t believe in yourself, then it doesn’t matter how big your dreams are or how talented you are. No matter what a person’s resources are, it is the work that they put in themselves that shifts their paradigm. People who make it despite their odds is dependent on their core beliefs and in the centre of that belief is ‘you.’
Expand your picture of your life and remain on the road of expansion.
