Then Go Get It!
In order to get something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done! If there is something you want in life just wishing it was so isn’t enough. You have to take action and do the work to attain it no matter how daunting things may seem at times. Keep the faith, it’s usually the moment you decide to give up is right before the moment your dreams are to become a reality.
I know at times getting knocked down can be really discouraging but those are the times when you are truly being tested. It is the time when your determination must be greater than your doubt, your passion too strong to allow for any other outcome. Anything worth having, anything placed in your soul and your heart is worth fighting for even in the face of challenge.
Encouragement or discouragement can be the breaking point if you let it especially when time and patience are a requirement for your dream.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you what is not possible for you! If you have a goal, a dream and you feel that when you share it with others they try to derail your plans and say it’s impossible then the solution is simple, only share your dreams with those who love and support your vision. You need people around who motivate you not to give up, who remind you that you can do it, who dive into your vision with you and experience the glory of imagination and dream.
It doesn’t matter if you or anyone else may think on some level of “reality” that what you want is a pipe dream because I can assure you nothing is impossible for you! The only time it becomes impossible is when you start to believe the naysayers, when you let the seeds of doubt creep in. As long as you have passion to chase it with everything in you then impossible turns into I’m possible.
The world has become abundant with “instant gratification” in so many ways which has both good and bad sides to it. I guess the upside is that you get something you want right away and you don’t have to wait but then how much do you value it, does it become a prized possession? Likely not because prized possessions are usually something that you put blood, sweat and tears into which is why you cherish them.
So then the downside would be that you don’t appreciate what you’ve attained because it was too easy to get. When you really have to work hard and wait for a dream to manifest you have no choice but to build your patience, for those of you that struggle with patience, like me, that is a task in itself. When you do start to see things come to fruition it builds so much more; self-worth, self-esteem, pride, confidence, belief in yourself, inner strength and the list goes on.
When you’ve reached a goal or dream you tend to want to hold onto it more and not let it go, not gripping too tightly but in a treasured kind of way. It becomes your personal badge of honor on your soul, not for others to be impressed by you but for you to feel proud of the commitment you nurtured into your reality.
If you feel there is something more you desire and you want more passion and purpose in your life start with where your heart goes when you let your mind wander. The solutions lie within the stillness of your mind, in the quiet moments you hear the answers to your most pertinent questions. You were not born to live a mediocre life, you are destined to live your best life!
Find your passion and it will lead you to your purpose!
