Life Is Too Short! Get What You Want!

If you have read my blog, this may seem repetitive, but it deserves repeating--what do you want out of life?  What do you really desire to do with your time on earth?

What you are about to read is nothing new.  You can find a lot of authors who teach this.  It took me a long time to listen to any of them, but after I read "Think and Grow Rich" and I applied these principles, my life changed in a big way! Goals became a reality.

Have you discovered your WHY?  Still pondering

Do you have a plan in place to achieve your goal?  Have you written down your goal?  I'm going to be very straight with you.  If you don't write down your goal(s) or affirmations, you will not achieve it.  An alternative is to create a dream board, that contains images of what you dream of, but you must have a visual aid.  You MUST read or visualize your goal(s) every day, morning and evening.  It must be constantly in front of you to keep you focused.

Here's the real important part--It doesn't have to seem possible today.  It may seem unreachable, but if you focus on it and work towards that goal, it can become a reality.  You may not even know how you are going to attain it.  You don't have to have a specific plan in place, but you must be focusing on your dream!  Your goal statement must be written in the Present Tense, specific as to date and goal.  And, you must read it DAILY! 

It is very easy to let the stresses of life depress you.  Life can become overwhelming IF YOU LET IT!  You have a choice of letting yourself dwell on the negative or focusing on the positive.  I choose to focus on the positive.  What good does negativity have?  NONE!!!

I know that some people don't believe that writing goals is necessary.  They don't see the value in it.  I was there myself for many years.  You say, "I want a positive change in my life," but do you really mean it?  Are you willing to take the steps necessary to make that change a reality.

Let me ask you this--How is your current plan working?  Is it producing the results you are looking for?  If your answer is an emphatic NO! then why don't you change it?  What can you lose?  The current plan isn't getting you what you want.

Step out of your comfort zone and do something right away that you fear.  That may be going and talking to a stranger.  It may be buying clothes that are little on the wild side for you.  A new hairstyle?  It will grow back if you don't like it!  Sign up for a 5K run or a 10K run--something you never thought you could do.

If you know what you want, then what are you waiting for?  Quit letting fear stand in your way.  Don't let people who DON'T have what you want, tell you that you can't have it.  Place yourself near people who have what you desire.
