"We don't know who we are until we see what we can do." Martha Grimes
All of us have lofty aspirations, a personalized wish list of things we want to accomplish in our lives. There are goals we want to achieve, places we want to go and things we'd love to do. These are our hopes, our dreams, and our reason for living. And each of our goals holds a special place in our hearts. They make us who we are. Yet far too often they remain only dreams.
We never really go and get them.
That doesn't mean we don't want them, because we do. In fact, we really want them. We want to feel them. We want to see them come alive. We want to live them with every ounce of our being. We really, really, want them.
But is wanting really good enough?
"He who wants, but doesn't act, is a pest." William Blake
If all we had to do in order to get something is to simply want it, we would already have it all. So obviously wanting alone is not the answer. Let's face it; wanting is easy, real easy as a matter of fact. Anybody can want just about anything. But all the wanting in the world wont make it happen. It takes more than want power to bring our dreams to life, it takes will power.
More will power than most of us are willing to show.
Sort of wanting it, kind of wanting it, even really wanting it wont get the job done. No, if we truly want something in life, we have to make something happen. Not wish for it, but go out there and get it. Not hope it will happen, but make it happen each and every day. Not just dream about it, but get busy making our dreams a reality.
Will power is the key.
"Saying is one thing and doing is another." Michel de Montaigne
There comes a time in each of our lives where we make a decision - are we in or out? A time where we must draw a line in the sand and decide once and for all whether we're we going to do it - or not. We have to make a choice; are we willing to give it our best shot - or not? Are we going to talk a good game - or are we going to roll the dice and make something happen?
Are we in - or are we out?
Most of us will quickly say we're in, in all the way as a matter of fact; yet more often than not our actions say just the opposite. Even though we'd love our dreams to come true, we're not ready to pull the trigger. We're not ready to go all in; not prepared to lay it all on the line. Even though we desperately want something better, want more out of life, we're just not willing to do whatever it takes to get there. Reluctant to give life our very best shot, we constantly come up short; not one inch closer to the goals we seek, not one step closer to living we lives we desire.
"Bite off more than you can chew, then chew it." Ella Williams
Aren't you tired of not having the things you want? Aren't you ready to start living life the way you've always dreamed it could be? Well maybe you should stop doing all of that stuff that isn't working - and start looking for things that do.
For starters, you need to stop making excuses. Stop wasting time. Stop looking for reasons why you can't do it. Stop wishing and hoping things will get better. That's right; you've got to stop, stop, stop, stop doing those things that keep you from improving your life... and start doing something to make your life better right now.
Things will get better the moment you get better. Things will start happening the minute you start happening. Things will start looking up the second you start looking up. Want to feel better? Want to do better? Want to see your dreams spring to life? Then do something about them; something special, something exciting, something truly amazing right now.
If you want a better life, a happier life, an unlimited life where anything and everything is well within your reach (and why wouldn't you?), you've got to jump in with both feet. And go get the things you want - and go get them right now! In order to do more, you have to do things you've never done in the past. In order to have more, you have to give more than you've given before. In order to be more, you have to be willing to push yourself harder and farther than you have ever pushed before.
And start living life with everything you've got.
The Bottom Line: In order to get more, you've got to give more.
