"Never look back unless you are planning to go that way." Henry David Thoreau
How's your day going? Is it going the right way - or the wrong way?
Is it going way too fast? Way too slow? Or just about the way you planned?
Is it going the way you hoped it would go? The way you need it to go? Or is it going just about every way but the right way for you?
If things aren't going the way you want, you need to change things around. You need to find a better way - and get headed in the right direction.
"The best way to predict the future is to create it." Peter Drucker
So what way is the right way? That answer depends entirely on you. After all, only you know what you want. Only you know where you want to go. Only you know the hopes and dreams you hold in your heart. And only you can determine which way is the right way for you.
The best way to find the right way is to ask yourself the following questions:
What makes you come alive?
What gets you going?
What gets your heart pounding?
What gets you moving?
What gets you excited?
What do you want more than anything else on earth?
The answers will reveal what you want. That's the easy part. Finding the HOW can prove to be a bit more challenging.
Now ask yourself:
How am I going to get what I want?
How am I going to make something happen?
How am I going to get there from here?
If your answers are something along the line of "I don't know" or worse yet "duh," you're not working hard enough. You're not pushing yourself. You're not knuckling down and looking for the answers you hold within. Come on now, do you really want it? I mean really want it deep down where it counts?
Then PUSH yourself to find the answers you seek.
If you're not willing to push yourself, and then push some more, you're just window shopping. You're just looking. You're doing little more than sifting through the sale rack.
If you're not ready, willing and able to find a way that works, you're not serious about making your dreams come true.
"As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way." Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is one way and only one way to bring your dreams to life. And that is to come alive yourself. That means getting out there and trying new approaches and new ideas, putting your best to the absolute test day in and day out.
Don't know where to start? Well here are a few pointers.
First of all, get out of your own way. That's right; get the heck of your own path! Stop putting up the roadblocks, stop tossing out the excuses and stop creating all the havoc you generate for yourself. Things are tough enough without your 'help.' Get out of your way. Get focused. Then give it a go - and see what happens.
If this way doesn't work, give that way a shot.
If that way falls flat, try another way.
If another way goes south, try a different way.
If a different way doesn't cut it, try a better way.
If a better way flops, try a smarter way, a faster way, any way until you find a way that works.
Dont break out the crying towel when things go wrong. Don't hoist up the white flag when you hit a snag. Don't run away and hide when the mistakes start to pile up. Just stand your ground. Keep tinkering. Keep tweaking. Keep working. And keep moving until you find finally find the right way to do it.
"There's a way to do it better - find it." Thomas A. Edison
If you get knocked down (which you will), get back up, get better and get going again. Don't quit. Don't whine. And for goodness sake, don't stop. Just keep pushing. Keep pounding. Keep pressing forward until you make it work.
Want to be successful? Then make some changes. As Dale Carnegie once put it, "The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way."
By changing the way you do things, you'll change your results. By changing the way you think, the way you look at things, the way you work and the way you act, you can change where you are. You can change what you are. You can turn your life around.
By constantly looking for a more efficient, effective and innovative way to do things, you'll discover a better way, a faster way, a right way to do just about everything you do.
Along the way, you will learn a lot about life - and a lot about yourself as well.
