"A decision is made with the brain. A commitment is made with the heart." Nido Qubein
This time I'm going to do it. No, this time I really mean it. Hey, I'm serious, I really mean it. I'm really, really, really going to make it happen this time around. There's no doubt about it.
Oh sure, I've said it before, but this time it's going to be different. This time I really want it. This time I'm really ready. This time I'm really excited, I'm really fired up; I really feel I can do it. I just know I'm going to get it done this time.
"All things are possible for those who believe." Gail Devers
How many times have you said you were going to do it this time - and didn't? How many times have you stated you were going to get it done this time - and didn't? How many 'this time' moments have come and gone in your life - with little or nothing to show for it?
More than you care to remember? More than you want to admit? And how many more are you going to add to your list?
Look, I'm not saying you won't do it this time. In fact, I'm hoping you will. But let's get one thing straight right here and now. There's a HUGE difference between saying and doing, between thinking and acting; between talking the talk and walking the walk.
And that difference can be summed up in six short words: HOW BADLY DO YOU WANT IT?
"It's not how physically strong you are that matters, it's the level of commitment that you hold in your heart that will get you through the hard parts." Scott Rogers
If you kind of want it, you'll kind of go after it. MAYBE. If you sort of want it, you'll sort of go get it. MAYBE. But let's be honest, have you ever really got anything worth having by kind of, sort of going through the motions? Come on now, 'fess up; has even one of your previous half-hearted, half-baked efforts ever panned out?
Of course not - and here's why. If you're not totally committed to the effort, you are doomed right from the start. If you aren't willing to commit your heart and soul to the attempt, you won't give your best. And you won't stand a chance.
Doing comes from wanting. Not sort of or kind of wanting mind you, but from really, really wanting it way down deep inside. You've got to want it with a fiery fervor that won't go out - and then do something about it. NOW! You've got to want it with all of your might - and then pursue it with unswerving resolve. NOW!
You've got to really want it more than you've ever wanted anything - and vow you will have it no matter what. NO MATTER WHAT! And then go get it. RIGHT NOW!
"The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me." Ayn Rand
When you're willing to climb the highest mountains, when you are ready to swim the deepest seas, when you're really geared up to do whatever it takes to get the job done, then and only then will you finally taste the success you seek.
You're never going to sail the high seas if you keep one foot planted on the beach. You're never going to fly high amongst the clouds if you never spread your wings. You're never really going to let loose if you refuse to let go. The only way to make your dreams come true is to pursue them... and pursue them with relentless passion.
This time, why not really go for it? This time, why not really give it your best shot? This time, why not commit your heart and soul to really making it happen? And really do it. Really have it. Really show the world what you're REALLY all about.
The Bottom Line: Only when you really want it will you really do it.
