The secret to success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching.
Have you ever had what seems to be an uncontrollable itch to do something; an almost overwhelming desire that just wont go away? Even when you do your best to pay no heed to that incessant itch, it just keeps coming back time and time again. This persistent, consistent, resistant itch refuses to let go until you finally give in and give that something a try.
Lifes itches come in all shapes and sizes and from all sorts of directions. It may be an itch to start a new venture or to breathe life into an old plan that never really took off the way you thought it would. Perhaps theres an itch to bring more meaning to your life, to do more than merely scratch the surface of your immense potential on earth. Or maybe youve experienced that age old itch to just get rich, to make a fortune as you carve out your own lucrative niche in the world. While we all have a wide variety of individual itches, we do have one thing in common: we need to start scratching if we want to improve our lot in life.
Too many young people itch for what they want without scratching for it.
As youngsters, we all held in our hearts and soul dreams of becoming a bigger than life sensation. We saw life as it could be, vividly envisioning ourselves living our lives in a BIG and BOLD manner; seeing ourselves doing whatever we desired. Yet as we grew older and supposedly much wiser; seemingly out of nowhere appeared an endless array of obstacles and barriers blocking our paths to the attainment of those cherished dreams.
Could it be that our dreams had somehow silently slipped away, having been forever lost with our fading youth or could it be something else altogether? Like perhaps our failure to scratch out what we truly desire in life by scratching where it itches?
What itches; needs scratching.
It has been said throughout history that the most successful people on earth have always been those who were willing to start from scratch and keep scratching. These champions have come to realize that this constant itching is their bodies way of showing them where they need to go and what they need to do to find true fulfillment and happiness. So whenever and wherever they feel an itch to do virtually anything they strongly desire, they simply scratch it and keep scratching.
How about you? Are you presently living life to the hilt, scratching every ounce of enjoyment and gratification life affords us all or have you barely scratched the surface? Is each day getting better than the day before or has your life shifted into neutral, going nowhere in no particular hurry at all? Even if you havent scratched your itch for who knows how long, you can and you will begin living life to the fullest the moment you commit to scratching wherever good fortune happens to itch and then keep scratching.
Business is never so healthy as when, like a chicken, it must do a certain amount of scratching around for what it gets.
Hoping or wishing that your life will get better isnt likely to get you anywhere you truly want to go. And all the yearning and craving you have for a better life, a life brimming with better times and even better days, isnt going to do you much good without a goodly amount of scratching for those things you ardently desire.
If youre going to take your life to a whole new level of achievement and accomplishment, youve got to get with the program and get in the healthy habit of scratching those itches, anytime and anywhere they occur. If it itches, scratch it. And if it keeps itching, then keep scratching away. When you are willing to scratch for those things you passionately want to achieve in your lifetime, a lifetime of personal achievement well beyond your present comprehension is set into motion.
When you learn to scratch lifes itches, youll have just scratched the surface of what you can do, have and become. The moment you begin enthusiastically scratching for those things you want to have and to hold, your time on earth will become richer than you ever imagined.
The Bottom Line: When you are willing to scratch your itch to get better, youve just scratched the surface of what you are destined to accomplish.
