"When it comes to getting things done, we need fewer architects and more bricklayers." Colleen C. Barrett
Want more out of life? Want to be more, see more and do more than you're being, seeing and doing right now? Who doesn't? But in order to get more, you have to be willing to give more - way more than most are willing to give.
Giving more takes determination. It takes ambition. It takes drive, tenacity and courage. It takes getting up when you get knocked down. It takes pushing ahead when problems pile up. It takes giving it all that you've got even when you've got nothing left to give.
"The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one." Mark Twain
Wanting more is easy. However, the 'getting' part is a little trickier. After all, getting requires doing. Getting entails action. Getting demands purpose and persistence. If you are not getting the things you want in life, there's a good chance you're not getting after it. You're not giving it your all. And you're not getting anywhere worth going.
The first step towards getting somewhere is deciding that you are not going to stay where you are. Then stepping up and doing something about it. Instead of treading water, you need to figure out what you want, where you want to go. Determine the initial steps you need to take to get the ball rolling. Then take them.
These first steps do not need to be earth shattering leaps. Baby steps will do. As a matter of fact, any step in the right direction is a great start. The key is to take the steps - and keep taking them - until you get in the positive step taking groove.
"Live a life as a monument to your soul." Ayn Rand
If you're not happy with where you are and what you've got going, things won't change if you don't change.
In order to get more, change what you're doing.
In order to be more, change what you're thinking.
In order to have more, see more and do more, change what you believe deep down in your heart and soul.
Make some big changes. Make some small changes. Make changes that positively impact your life. Start expecting more. Start doing more. Start giving more. And you'll start getting more in return.
"The more you do, the more you are." Angie Papadakis
Please don't be one of those folks who forever complain about what they don't have or can't do. Instead, I urge you to embrace a can-do spirit. Believe you can attain each and every goal you long to accomplish. Believe you can achieve the dreams you hold in your heart. Believe you can live the life you have envisioned in your mind a thousand times over. And chase your rainbow with a fiery fervor that cannot be vanquished.
Whenever you come up short, give more than others are willing to give.
When troubles arise, do more than others are willing to do.
When things look bleak, dig deep and find the passion to power you through.
Demand more from life. Demand more from yourself. Be more. Give more. Love more. Live more. Smile more. Share more. And you'll get more.
More than you bargained for.
Power Pointer: You'll get more when you give more.
