"We fail to see that we can control our own destiny; make ourselves do whatever is possible; make ourselves become whatever we long to be."
Orison Swett Marden
If you're like most of us, youve probably the all-too-familiar refrain whatever a few too many times; maybe way too many times. This catch-all expression is generally uttered by people who are annoyed by what we say or think. Rather than show some effort and say something substantive, these shallow thinkers roll their eyes and toss out a half-hearted 'whatever,' generally ladled with a sarcastic tone.
Wow, that took some effort, didn't it? Instead of putting together a cogent response, the best these lazy, lethargic folks can come up with is a sluggish whatever? Good grief, if that's all they've got, that's not very much. Certainly not near enough to get under your skin. So don't give them that chance. Whenever someone responds with a half-baked 'whatever,' that's your cue to get on down the road.
"Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows."
Pope Paul VI
It's amazing how powerful words with such unlimited potential can be rendered weak and ineffective by weak and ineffective people. But then again, so what? There will always be slackers who habitually misuse words as a way of blowing other people off. That's their choice, but it doesn't have to be yours. As a matter of fact, you can choose to use the word whatever in a much more meaningful way.
By combining the term whatever with two simple words - it takes - you piece together a virtually unbeatable combination. And the moment you add do it now to the mix, you'd better hold on to your seat! By combining an unstoppable whatever it takes attitude with an unshakable do it now approach to living, you instantly become unbeatable. Best of all, you magically unlock your powerful potential; immediately unleashing an explosive wave of positive charged momentum.
"Whatever your life's work is, do it well."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Where do you want to go? What do you want to accomplish in your lifetime? What kind of lasting legacy do you want to leave behind? And most importantly, are you ready, willing and able to do whatever it takes - right now - to get there?
A do whatever it takes and do it now approach to living can take you anywhere you want to go. ANYWHERE at all; the sky is the limit. And if you're not ready now, when will you be? Will you continue to stand behind a bevy of excuses, procrastinating your way through life, or will you have the courage to take a stand and make your life everything you've dreamed it could be and more?
There are plenty of things you have yet to do and plenty of moments you have yet to enjoy. They are out there, waiting for you. There is only one thing holding you back right now and that one thing is you. You need to let go, turn yourself loose and see how things turn out. I believe you'll like what you see.
"Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass."
Paul J. Meyer
So what's it going to be? Are you going to take charge of where you're going and how you're going to get there or are you going to take a siesta instead? Come on, let's face it; if you are ever going to achieve your most cherished aspirations, you need to start doing whatever it takes and start doing it right now.
Whatever you desire, make it yours. That means doing whatever it takes to make it happen; right here, right now. Not whenever or wherever you get around to it, but right this minute, right where you are today. By throwing your entire heart and soul into everything you do right now, you start making your dreams come true.
Whatever you seek, make it a reality. That requires you to persistently pursue your goals with every ounce of energy and enthusiasm you can muster. Not a kind of effort, not a half-baked attempt; only a do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to get where you want to go type of effort will do. Each time, every time, no matter what it takes.
And finally, whatever you do in life, do it with all the passion and purpose you can generate, leaving nothing behind, nothing in reserve. You need to lay it all on the line, giving it everything you've got - and then keep on giving. There can be no excuses offered, just an all-out effort to be your absolute best.
When it comes to getting things done, you need to do whatever it takes - and you need to do it now.
The Bottom Line: Persistent overcomes resistance.
