In this series I have talked about time, health and touched on several other areas. But the common factor is this: small changes will lead to a better life. No matter the area. What does it take to see results? It takes massive predetermined actions. It also takes a desire to do what it takes, no matter what. I came across a story that makes this incredibly clear. “In 1519, Captain Hernán Cortés landed in Veracruz to begin his great conquest. Upon arriving, he gave the order to his men to burn the ships. As I imagine it, someone then laughed and Cortés promptly thrust his sword into the man’s chest. After which, the rest proceeded to get hammered on rum by the glow of the blaze. Almost like a bloodier version of The Pirates of the Caribbean with Cortés played by Johnny Depp.” (from http://travisrobertson.com/leadership/burn-ships-succeed-die/). The Captain left no choice. Either they succeeded, or they died trying. Sometimes you must leave no way out! That there is no “plan b.” Earlier today I posted on Facebook this:
We all have dreams! The question is, do you have the desire to do the work to make it a reality? It doesn’t matter what the dream is. If you are willing to do the work to make it happen and you have the desire to work at it, no matter what, you can do it! So what if someone has told you that you have less than 1% of making this a reality! That means you have a chance! The obstacles can make you or break you! Don’t let your circumstances dictate your life! So what if it seems like you have a million miles to go! You can make it! You have to choose to work to your full potential! Every step you take will get you one step closer to your dreams becoming a reality!
I know that YOU can make your dreams a reality! But the question remains, do you know it? And do you want it bad enough to make it happen? I say constantly on here what Les Brown says, “You have greatness within you.” But if you don’t believe it, it doesn’t matter! YOU have to believe it!
History has shown time and time again that you can beat the odds! Einsten, Oprah Winfrey, and others. Take a look:
If these, and others, can reach success SO CAN YOU! You have to make up your mind to do it. And you must believe it has already done! Use visualization! If you can see and believe it, you can do it! In tomorrow’s post, I will talk more on this. Until next time…
