"I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took an excuse."
If I only had more time.
If I only had more money.
If I only had more opportunity.
If I only had more talent.
Way too many of us spend way too much time taking about what we could have done IF we would have only had this, IF we would have only had that. We prattle on and on about all the great things we could have achieved IF things had been different. We rattle off all of the great feats we could have accomplished IF fortune had been a little bit kinder.
If, if, if, if, if.
"We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light."
Truth be told, God gave us everything we need, everything we require to make the most of our lives. That's right; we have been blessed with more than enough time, talent and opportunity to make our lives all they could be and more. Yet many of us still choose to 'if' our lives away. Instead of making the most of what we have, we make excuses.
OK, I'll grant you that it's generally easier to make excuses than to make something happen. Sitting on your duff and griping about the lack of opportunity available takes a whole lot less effort than getting out there and doing whatever it takes to get where you have always dreamed of going. But time to fess up; where has all that grumbling and complaining ever gotten even one of us?
"There is more inside you than you dare think."
Has it got us one step closer to realizing our potential? Has it got us one inch closer to fulfilling our dreams and aspirations? Has it got us one second closer to living the life we have always imagined? The answers are no, nope and not a chance.
Conjuring up one excuse after another why we didn't get the job wee wanted, didnt get the breaks we needed, didn't get this or that or the other is a total waste of effort, focus and opportunity. So why not toss the excuses aside once and for all? The moment we decide to step away from the excuses that have held us back in the past, we immediately step into a brighter, lighter, happier future.
"Believe it and achieve it."
Don't waste one minute worrying about what you supposedly don't have or cannot accomplish. Determine whatever it is that you want to accomplish, commit yourself to the task and then get busy putting the pieces together. You'll discover that a focused can do attitude will overpower virtually any obstacle placed in your path. Never once forget that you've got what it takes. Always have, always will. By putting your abundant God given gifts to work, you can start taking charge of your life.
And for heavens sake don't concern yourself with what others say you can or can't do. Who cares what they say? Let them talk all they want. Just make sure you don't listen to one word. The only thing that counts is what YOU believe deep down in your heart and soul. You need to believe in yourself and the gifts you hold within - and believe with all of your might.
You've got everything you'll ever need to live the life you have always imagined yourself living. Yes, you do! And you've got more than enough to make your most ceherished wishes come true. That's a fact, Jack! That remarkable, fabulous, almost unbelievable life you've dreamed of, wished for and longed to live is right here, right now. All you need to do is reach out and GRAB it. Grab it with all of your might.
And never let it go.
The Bottom Line: Use what you've got - and you'll get what you need.
