When you want to do something with your life it’s not enough to just say it, you need to take action, you need to find your path in life and try to keep on the right road, always moving forward.
People often say that they know what to do, or they will start doing the right things from tomorrow.
They have to remember that tomorrow is not the answer and it will never come.
As soon as youve postponed it, even for just 1 day, it will always come 2nd in your mind.
If you want to start applying change to your life then you have to start from today!
Sometimes its scary when you have great opportunities or blind corners ahead of you, but you have to be brave and think that life is about challenges and that you must positively face them with courage.
As Bernice Johnson Reagon once said, “Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.”
Think about it! We have all set a goal at one stage of our lives or another, whether it was a new years resolution or maybe it was a weight loss goal, or even a goal to reach somewhere on time. Whatever it might be, we all experience different levels of success with accomplishing the goals that we set.
Some achieve moderate success, while others are just abysmal failures. Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It’s OK to fail. If you’re not failing, you’re not growing.
Do you think that all the great people that have succeeded in life acknowledge luck as the main factor? No! Its a struggle, but a struggle worth fighting for. If you have a dream, a passion, dont leave it behind, dont say tomorrow is another day, dont start something without finishing it.
Your chance is like a train, if you miss it maybe you will not get another one, thats why you need to have the courage to do it when its the right time.
People fail in succeeding in life when they give up and when they dont fight for their dreams.
Let’s take some examples of some famous entrepreneurs that have succeeded in life starting from nothing. Do you think that they quit when they dont succeed the first time around? NO – they kept fighting and at the end they achieved their dreams.
People like Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump may have not succeeded the first time, but they stuck to their game plan like glue. It is important to act when you have talent or you have a passion, dont just talk about it, set out SMART GOALS. Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely Goals.
Specific- A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. For example a specific goal could be lose 10kg in 3 months rather than just ‘get in shape’.
Measurable- is what establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set, because when you measure your goals, you stay on track, reach your target dates.
Attainable- is when you identify the goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You start to develop the right attitude, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them.
Realistic- to be realistic, a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work.
Timely- For this, a goal should be grounded within a time frame. So make a commitment with yourself, work hard, think positive, be dedicated and catch your train.
Not all of us have the access to a coach or mentor; however its important to know that this is vital for someone who wants to flower in life. At least have somebody who can act as a soundboard, where you release you blockages, your worries and where you can expect positive feedback and motivational approaches to your next step.
Mru Patel is an entrepreneur who has coached and mentored a lot of people, and has even held conferences and coaching workshops. He believes that 85% of life is about the attitude, knowledge, mentoring/coaching you get and only 15% of time is taken to gain the skill and take action!
We should chase excellence in executing our knowledge and skills with the right attitude and not run after success ! If the above is followed success will come to you.
People say someday I will achieve this goal or that. If someday existed, it would have been a specific date/day on the calendar rather than Wednesday or Friday or whenever. People must look deep into their blockages and past to explore why those are affecting their lives.
A coach and mentor can help. You need to face reality and start having the right attitude, knowledge, and the right coaching to succeed in life. Grab your chance with your own two hands and start building your future with them.
It is important to be one with your goals, to see them as your eyes see the light, to breathe them as you breathe the air, to constantly remind yourself of your targets, and why its essential to reach them.
If you look forward to your future, if you take actions and stop procrastinating then you will flourish in life! Stay motivated and make sure you have the right knowledge and skill before you take action blindly, we all have the potential within us, anyone of us will be the next Bill Gates.
