Whatever you do, do with all your might.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
When was the last time that you laid it all totally on the line, giving life your very best shot? Now were not talking about taking a stab at something or even giving something a try. Not even close. After all, these kinds of half-hearted attempts are hardly worth the feeble effort made.
And were not talking about putting out a 50% effort, a 75% effort or even a 99% effort either. No, what were talking about here is a total, complete, full blown effort where you gave it everything youve got. I mean really let it rip; with nothing held back, nothing left in reserve. How long has it been since you turned that winning spirit inside you loose? If youre like most folks, it has been way too long.
The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.
Do you remember how it felt the last time you took a chance on yourself and threw caution to the wind? There, with your hair let down and all of your worries and fears left behind, you truly believed there was absolutely nothing you couldnt achieve, nothing you couldnt do. And you went for it. And even if things didnt pan out the way you wanted them to, wasnt it a real hoot to mash down on the accelerator and go at it full throttle?
How did it feel to boldly chase your dreams, without nary a trace of fear or thought of failure entering your mind? Words can scarcely describe the euphoric feelings of heart pumping elation and the edge of your seat excitement that accompany passionately pursuing your goals, can they? Come on, can there be a better feeling than putting your best to the test and triumphantly coming out on top?
When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.
Throwing your heart and soul into any endeavor is not without risk, which is precisely why so few of us burn our bridges behind us. Rather than risk falling short or worse yet, failing altogether, we often snooker ourselves into believing that playing it safe is the best course of action. But who are we really fooling here? How can any of us realistically expect to get to second base if we refuse to take one foot off first? How can we ever make our dreams come true if we never start doing?
In order to make your life everything it possibly can be and more, you not only need to dream big, exciting, life changing dreams; but you also need to do everything in your power to bring these dreams to life. And that means giving it all that youve got all of the time.
Most of us serve our ideals by fits and starts. The person who makes a success of living is one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That's dedication.
Cecil B. DeMille
William Faulkner said, Always dream and shoot higher than you know how to. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. When you begin combining a deep-seated belief system in yourself and your abilities with focused, persistent all out effort, youll discover that you are able to handle virtually anything life tosses your direction. Oh sure, you will inevitably encounter an assortment of letdowns and setbacks on your trip to the top, but youll soon begin viewing them as little more than slight delays in show time.
The moment you commit your entire heart and soul into any undertaking, you'll immediately feel a surge of turbo-charged power. With caution thrown to the wind, you will start moving relentlessly toward your goals, steadily gaining momentum like a powerful locomotive. By dedicating yourself to a life of giving your best, where anything less than a 100% heart and soul kind of effort is unthinkable, you'll pave the way to lifetime of happiness and achievement.
The Bottom Line: When you throw your heart and soul into every day living, youll soon be living the life youve imagined every day.
