Does success come naturally to you? All joking aside, does it? If you're like most of us, you spend countless hours thinking about what you WANT to accomplish in your life-time, yet you refuse to do the PLANNING it takes to make it happen. Have you ever wondered why people stall on creating strategic
steps towards turning their dreams into reality?
Overwhelmingly, it's FEAR that separates our desires from accomplishments. For clarity, ask yourself,
"What fears do I need to address in order for me to move forward?" The greatest dreamers who ever lived knew how paralyzing fear could be towards accomplishing our life's purpose; even Amelia Earhart said, "Look your fear in the face." See, without conquering our fear FIRST, we remain frozen in a state of non-action, while our days turn into years and our dreams fade into wishes.
Accomplishing goals takes work, and success is often obtained by achieving small tasks towards your greatest goals, daily. Only when we are willing to "chip away" at our plan of action, will we become driven to live our destiny with passion.
So, are you willing to start facing your fears? Are you willing to ask yourself the hard questions of why you are not further on the path towards accomplishing your goals? If so, I commend you... it takes bravery to work through, and overcome, the fears of failure and success. What is worse... not fully accomplishing your dreams, or not even trying?
My friend, what will you do today to start "chipping away" at accomplishing your life's purpose? I encourage you to utilize my Complimentary Build Your Dream Form to assist you in achieving your life's greatest goals.
Remember, overcoming our fear is the first step towards achieving our "passion-filled" purpose!
If we aren't careful, life's little distractions can cause our days to turn into the next without any real steps towards achieving our life's purpose. Why? Is it simply the lack of action taken towards planning that keeps us from our destiny? Seemingly, the most successful people in life live through their passion and strive to accomplish their goals by taking small steps, daily, to turn their goals into reality.
Since I've moved back to my hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana, I've become more focused and driven towards achieving my life's purpose. Sometimes, it's scary to dream your wildest dream... "what if I don't make it? Then I will be a failure" can fill our minds. Fear of failure, all too often, stops people from living their passion.
Friend, what makes you feel most alive? What are you most passionate about? If you could acheive your greatest life's purpose, what would it be?
See, once we begin to allow ourselves to think outside the parameters of our current situation, magic begins! It's okay to be fearful... we all have our moments! To overcome fear, I like to strategically plan through the "what if?" approach... this allows us to think "outside-the-box" without judging or blocking our creativity. Let your dreams grow on paper by writing them down! When we do get overwhelmed in the moment of "how could I possibly accomplish this lofty goal?", put aside your pen and paper and come back to planning when you are refreshed.
If you had the opportunity to live your ultimate dream, would you? Are you sure? I dare you to try... I double-dog dare you!
