There Are So Many Levels
There is always another mountain beyond the one you’ve just climbed and continually challenging yourself to be all that you can be is the best motivation for your personal evolution and growth. Honestly I think my best competition is trying to best myself at something I’ve achieved and I always enjoy the challenge. If I am unsuccessful at first I find it personally motivating to try that much harder again and again until I achieve my goal. While I recognize that I am stubborn, this trait has proven to be of great assistance because it helps keep me motivated to persevere even if something is more challenging than I had initially anticipated.
I do believe that the people we surround ourselves with in life can either help or hinder our efforts to progress.
If someone believes in you, do them the honor or letting them know their belief in you is not wasted, rise to all that you can be. One person can make a difference because on the flip side one person’s lack of belief can plant the seeds of self-doubt and that doubt can destroy not only your faith in yourself but your faith in them.
I don’t believe that we’ve chosen the people that enter our lives but rather it has been destined to evolve because that was the plan from the beginning, whether we realize it or not.
Everyone that crosses our path, negative or positive, are there to teach us how to determine who we want to walk with us through this life. All of it is a challenge, some challenges are more obvious than others and I think the ones that are the most obvious are our mistakes or missteps because they hurt and we tend to pay a lot more attention to them whether that is trying to dissect why something happened or trying to determine how to avoid it in the future.
It’s amazing how some of the most monumental developments in my life have evolved from humble beginnings, I mean I’ve literally fallen into great opportunities that have seemed so effortless that had I planned for it I would have expected to have to put more effort into it. I think that’s the beauty of the destined path especially if you are continually pushing yourself onto the next level of your life. If you are not open to embracing the challenge and the change you become stagnant and that state of being can deteriorate your spirit into so many negative and non-productive directions.
Everything in life is evolving whether you choose to evolve with or not and it’s your personal and life challenges that can either make or break how you far you end up going but these challenges build character and strength whether we desire it or not.
There is a lot of reference now to the “bucket list” which I think is a great motivator but only if you don’t take yourself for granted and have enough belief in yourself to know that you will work as hard as you can to do all the things you have on your list. The “bucket list” is similar to the vision board and whichever format works best to aide you is the one you should use. I use both actually, mostly because the more I see something the more ingrained it becomes in my mind and which makes manifestation inevitable. I must have a million different notepads that I’ve written goals in along with the pages I’ve written them on, torn out and carried around with me. My process works for me, I’ve done clean-ups where I’ve found these notepads or notes and discovered that everything on them was now a checkmark of success.
I know that these successes are the inspiration for my continued climb onto the next level because I want to challenge and push myself to the limits so I can be happily surprised when I achieve success. It is a joyful feeling to create and induce your personal confidence level when you achieve something that you didn’t know if you could but challenged yourself anyway because of the inner strength it builds.
