How many times have you intended to accomplish a task that you decided to put off until tomorrow and never seemed to get around to doing?
Have you ever made a statement regarding a goal or ambition that you had for yourself such as “One of thee days I’m going to…” and one of these days hasn’t yet arrived?
Have you ever experienced that little voice in your head saying something like, “Write that book”, or “Start that business“, or “Help that person”, and you told yourself that one day you would, but today you have “Just too much going on?”
If so, don’t feel alone. Many in our busy world of hustle and bustle, seemingly overwhelming responsibilities, "too much to do and too little time to do it", and "too many bills and not enough money", experience this same situation on a regular basis.
But just because many experience it, certainly doesn’t make it right, does it?
Many experience not having enough funds to pay the mortgage, utilities, put food on the table, and clothing on their backs from month to month. Many experience a day to day grind at a job that they despise, waking to feelings of dread each morning, forcing themselves out of bed to fulfill yet another day of just getting by, convincing themselves and believing “That‘s just the way life is.” Far to many experience overwhelming fear and anxiety of what tomorrow might bring to them in the way of financial problems, health issues, and an array of other energy draining possibilities.
Yes, as sad as it is, it’s true that the majority don’t live lives of fulfillment, inner peace, and joy on a day to day basis, and can’t seem to ever quite reach the level of experiencing the life that they dream about, long for, and were created to enjoy.
It’s true that the majority spend so much time making a living that they fail to make a life, and end up in their senior years thinking about all they meant to do but "Never got around to", anticipating and wishing that it were the last day of the month so they could receive their meager social security check. It’s sadly true that 95% of the U.S. population enter the "golden years" without any type of financial security thinking about what they meant to do, but never got around to, wishing they had done something different and perceiving it to be too late.
So, just because the majority does it that way doesn’t mean that it’s Ok, does it?
Just because the majority experiences this type of life, doesn’t mean that it was meant to be that way, does it?
Could it be that traditional teaching and self limiting beliefs passed down from generation to generation has the majority of the population thinking and believing that this type of predicament is normal? Is it possible that this situation has evolved due to people forming the same beliefs, taking the exact same steps, and following the same path that the majority has taken?
I believe that is exactly the reason. I also believe that there are steps that can be taken which will allow you to experience the life of the minority, rather than being held hostage to a life of unfulfilled hopes, dreams, and ambitions. I believe that there is something that can be done to assist those that are willing and open to discover and take steps that the majority either refuses to take or aren’t aware that exist, and are their choice to take.
In fact I know it!
Now, what can you do to make sure that you don’t fall into the majority category? What immediate steps can you take to increase your odds of not falling into this same predicament as the masses?
Many situations vary depending on each individuals circumstance, but there are specific steps that can be taken immediately to assist you in attaining your most sought after dreams and ambitions regardless of where you currently find yourself. There are physical steps that you can begin to take right now that will dramatically increase your odds of realizing, achieving, and experiencing the life that you were put here to experience. There is a mindset that you can place yourself into that will greatly increase the odds of your not falling into the “I wish I would have…” category.
What are they?
Here’s the condensed version…
Go Within And Discover your Passion or Purpose
If you don’t have a clearly defined goal or even a hint concerning what you would like to accomplish, take 10-15 minutes a day to get by yourself, away from any distractions and quiet your mind. Search within and really dig for any hint of what might inspire you to take action toward a task, goal, or passion that your little inner voice has been prodding you to do. If nothing comes to mind ask yourself these questions and be completely honest with yourself.
1. What are you afraid of admitting?
2. What is it that you love about yourself?
3. What passion, desire, interest do you keep buried or hidden?
4. What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
5. What would you do if you were financially secure and money were not a concern?
6. What would you look back on and regret not having done if you were dying?
Have you come up with a few possibilities? Is it something that you feel truly passionate about? Great Let’s Move On….
Allow Yourself To Be There
Allow yourself a few minutes to ponder on what it would be like to actually be experiencing whatever it is that you came up with. Really let yourself go and allow yourself to see the end result of your endeavor. Allow yourself to feel what it will feel like, see what it will look like, and hear what it will sound like to reach that place.
Be Thankful For Receiving It
Are your emotions stirred? Great, that’s exactly where you want to be. Now thank God, or your Higher Power, the Universe, or whatever you perceive it to be for receiving what you envisioned. Express sincere gratitude for attaining whatever your desire is.
Take Baby Steps
Now, it’s time to take action as thoughts, emotions, feelings and situations arise that are in alignment with what it is that you are working toward.
When they arise, take some form of action as they arise or as soon as you possibly can. Avoid putting off till tomorrow what can be done right now. Skip a TV show if you have to. Replace the normal time you spend absorbing the negativity of the front page news with working toward your desire. Make time each day and begin to take baby steps toward realizing your dream.
Make it a habit to do some small thing each day that will contribute to accomplishing your desired outcome, regardless of how petty it may seem. Allow as much time as possible to accomplish as much as possible, but do something to bring you one step closer. Do it every day. Every day
Be Kind To Yourself
If for whatever reason you do miss a day, don’t beat yourself up. Forgive yourself and get back on track. Tomorrow’s gone and today is another opportunity to move one step closer. Be here now. Forget about yesterday and don’t worry about tomorrow. Do something right now!
There you have it. Make the above steps a daily part of your routine and you will be moving in the direction of fulfilling your desires, whatever they might be.
Develop the discipline to do something each day, regardless of how petty it may seem. Take the time to experience the outcome. Be thankful for the outcome. Take one small step every day. Be persistent. Be kind to yourself. Develop a prosperity mindset.
Your dreams, desires and passions are attainable and are waiting for you to discover them.
Begin it now. Don’t allow the meaningless and petty things in life to keep you from unveiling, discovering and enjoying the important things. Let go of what happened yesterday and stop worrying about what might happen in the future. Tomorrow will be here sooner than you think. Do something now that will allow you to experience and enjoy it.
Don’t allow yourself to fall into the mindset of the majority waiting and thinking that you might be the 1 in 50,000,000 that hit’s the big lottery. Don’t wait for the day that you “feel a little more like it” or “when the kids are a little older” or “when the weather gets a little nicer.”
Develop the mindset that you can, and do it Right Now!
I’ll close with one of my all time favorite quotes…
"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not quite, the not yet, the not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours." -Ayn Rand
Begin today to take action. Do something right now that will allow you to be one step closer to living and enjoying your life the way that you were intended to.
Begin Right Now to discover the truth, that you were intended to experience a life of Joy, Inner Peace, and Fulfillment.
Seek the answers that prove you were created to live a life of Abundance and Happiness.
Awareness + Passion + Belief + Action = Unlimited Potential
