"There is but one cause of human failure. And that is man's lack of faith in his true self." William James
We wish we could make our dreams come true. Not next year or somewhere down the line, but right here; right where we are right now.
No more weeks of waiting or anticipating; no more months of wishing and hoping. No more years and years of praying our time will come.
Just a wonderful life of living our dreams... and living them now.
But we're not.
So we wait. And hope. And pray some more. That someday we will somehow make our dreams come true.
"When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you." Lao Tzu
We tell ourselves we lack the resources to make our dreams happen. That we lack the time, talent and opportunities needed to bring them to life. We don't have the money. We don't have the ability, we don't have this or that or the other.
We feel stuck. And lousy. And sorry for ourselves. It doesn't have to be this way. In fact, it shouldn't be this way. But 'this way' needlessly becomes our way of life.
And we do without.
Contrary to what many believe, it's not a lack of time that's holding us back; i's not a lack of talent preventing our progress. Nor is it a lack imagination or creativity keeping our dreams away.
None of us, not one of us, lack what it takes to do our best and be our best; to make our lives all they could be and should be and more.
"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will." Vincent Lombardi
Now that doesn't mean something isn't lacking, because there's something lacking alright. But it's not a lack of resources. It's not a lack of money or opportunity. Rather, it's a lack of staying power. It's lack of will power. It's a lack of any sort of real firepower.
It's a lack of persistence, a lack of determination; a lack of conviction, passion and commitment. It's a lack of boldness, a lack of daring, a lack of giving life our very best shot.
But let's be clear. We don't really lack any of these things. We just don't use them consistently - or effectively.
Washington Irving said, "The easiest thing to do, whenever you fail, is to put yourself down by blaming your lack of ability for your misfortunes." Please don't make this mistake. It's not a lack of ability holding you back; it's a lack of being, doing and having the things you really want.
In a nutshell, it's a lack of WANT power. Or should I say a lack of putting your want power to work. Because, make no mistake about it, you have it; you've always had it. You just need to USE it.
"Here is a test to see if your mission on earth is finished. If you are alive, it isn't." Francis Bacon
There's a white-heat passion deep down in your gut. A fire that burns bright. A fire that burns deep. A roaring fire of desire that can take you anywhere you have ever dreamed of going.
Maybe you have allowed the flame to flicker. Or almost go out. But that was then. And this is now.
You need to reach deep and rekindle the flame, reignite the spark, and reenergize the magic you hold within. And get out there and do your very best each and every day.
And you'll recapture the magic of living.
The Bottom Line: The only thing lacking is you.
