I have been thinking about this topic for a few weeks now – then whilst watching a movie last week it was brought to my attention again.
It is not the “it” that you want, it is the fantasy of “it”, it is the feeling of success when you have/get “it”.
In other words, when you daydream about what you think will make you happy and successful, Is “it” the actual Luxury Car/Designer Home/ Ist Class Travel etc that you really want or is “it” the feeling of having all these things and the feeling of being successful what you really want?
So, why do so many people fail to get what they really want?
Because they think they will only be truly happy and successful when they get what really want. This is a sure recipe for failure.
If you are taking the steps you need to achieve what you really want – and are being true to yourself and all who have an influence in your life. Then you are on the path to having and achieving all you really want, the path may be a little rocky or windy and sometimes you may take a wrong turn – but that’s life!
Here is my analogy on life.
When you go into a maze – you go in knowing that you are going to find your way to the exit, you have a bit of fun on the journey of the maze – you take a few wrongs turns and have to backtrack and find another way to get to the exit – BUT that’s exactly what you do – You find another way and you get to the exit! You don’t give up and think its too hard, you know for a fact that if you persist you will find the exit. It may take a little longer than you had hoped for and your friends and others in the maze may get to the exit before you. But when you get to the exit – you have your story to tell of your journey.
So, think about what it is you really want to achieve, put steps in place – take action – and know that “Where there is a will there is a way”.
