Life is pretty easy to figure out; we just complicate it by reading too much into it. We are wired to figure things out which work for us and we try a new approach if it isn’t working.
A large part of getting to where you want to be is envisioning yourself already there. If you are a classical singer, you might picture yourself on stage of an opera. Whatever your vision is, you can get there. Making a vision board will help you obtain and retain new ideas of the future you imagined. But that is only one small part of making it to where you want to be.
One word will get you there, one simple word, determination. You can’t buy it, you can’t borrow it from someone. It has to burn within you. You will be tested, the universe wants to find out just how bad you want to succeed, so it may throw some difficult times at you to make sure that you still an active participant in your dream.
A half a dream is just that, a half a dream. It can’t hold any water no matter how much you lie and tell yourself you’re working hard for it. You get out of your determination exactly what you put into it. No lies or half-truths!
When your determination stops shinning, you will know right away. You will become lazy, and halfhearted about where you want to be. Your determination will sizzle out, and your attention span will not be as keen. What probably happened is that you started to doubt your abilities or you haven’t seen the big pay off as of yet.
Relax, take a deep breath and get back on track. It’s that easy. It is time to get back to the drawing board and map out your game plan. Get back into the game of knowing where you want to be. Focus your attention on getting there. Here are some things that might help you:
Where do you want to be? Define this as much as possible, this works in relationships as well as a business.
What steps do I have to take to get there? Be realistic! This means the time you devote to getting there. For an example, if it is a relationship, you might have to work on changing things a little bit, work on yourself, this takes time. In business, what needs to be improved? Adjust, or change what needs to be changed, make it perfect, this is your life.
Your plan on getting there means not only determination it means responsibility. It means putting in your time to build where you want to go. This means that you will have to be responsible with your time. There might be a party that you want to attend, but you have a special project that you want to finish. It means sacrifices. It means defining want and need.
Stay determined, keep the fires burning in your soul. Let your enthusiasm flow from your lips and let others feel the excitement in your voice. You can do anything in this life that you wish, all you have to do is get serious about where you want to be and let your determination take you there.
