"We are always getting ready to live, but never living." Ralph Waldo Emerson
It's easy to picture the life we desire; real easy as a matter of fact. Deep in our hearts and souls, there is a warehouse stocked with an endless assortment of dazzling dreams and aspirations. Amazing things we want to try. Exciting places we want to visit. All sorts of wonderful life experiences we yearn to see, feel and touch for ourselves.
It doesn't take much to crank up our ever-active imaginations. Splashed across the silver screen of our minds, we can see ourselves doing all kinds of incredible things. And picture it in resplendently rich detail. With nothing to distract us, we can see ourselves living life the way it was meant to be lived, filled with excitement, joy and happiness. The pictures we hold in our minds are so vivid, so vibrant and so crystal clear, it feels like we almost reach out and grab them.
But there is a difference between seeing and actually getting. Not as big a difference as some people make it, but a difference nonetheless.
"The secret of getting things done is to act." Benjamin O. David
Just about everybody has the picturing part of the equation down pat. They see what they want. They can feel it as well. In fact, they can picture their hopes and aspirations with the best of them. But that's about as far as it goes. When it comes to getting part, they don't.
And their dreams remain as elusive as ever.
Then there are the folks who passionately pursue their dreams on a daily basis. These mover and shakers see what they want - and they go get it. They don't make excuses; they get busy and make something happen. They realize that the only way to get what we want in life is to step up and take it.
And so should you.
"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment." Henry David Thoreau
It's been said that if we can see it and believe it, we can achieve it. Based on that simple but truthful equation, the only stumbling block between the seeing and the achieving is the believing part. And that's where many fall by the wayside. You see, many people just don t believe that their goals can come true. Oh sure, they would like them to happen. In fact, most really want to bring their dreams to life. But they do not really believe with all of their hearts and souls that they can make them happen.
So they stop believing. They stop trying. And their dreams fade away.
You cannot make this same mistake. You need to believe, and I do mean really, really BELIEVE that you can make things happen. Regardless of the trouble you encounter, in spite of the difficulties that litter your path, you have to keep believing you can. That you can overcome any obstacle, that you can power through any problem, and that you have what it takes to get to the top.
"We are all capable of greater things than we realize." Norman Vincent Peale
You need to stop worrying about what you don't have. And forget about what you supposedly can't do. The only thing that matters is what you believe in your heart. Deep down in your soul, there lies a reservoir of confidence and self-assurance that can take you anywhere you ve dreamed of going; all the backup power you'll ever need.
More than enough power to push past the problems that plague you. More than enough power to plow through the predicaments you face.
The power to succeed, the power to win, the power to believe you can.
I want you to picture the life you desire. I want you to hold it in your mind. Can you see it? It looks absolutely fantastic, doesn't it? Now, I want you to imagine how wonderful your life would be if you were living this picture perfect life every day. There is only one thing standing between you and the life you desire, only one thing keeping you from living your dreams - and that one thing is belief. Belief in yourself, belief in your abilities, belief you can get the job done.
You know where to find it. You know where to look. It's time to reach deep down and start believing you have what it takes.
And start making your life everything you have ever dreamed it could be.
The Bottom Line: Picture what you want out of life. And then go get it.
