Do You Have The Courage?
Do you have the courage to do what you believe in? Do you have the courage to complete the task even though the whole world thinks you are crazy? Do you have the courage to continue with your dreams when they appear to be impossible dreams? Or do you just cave in and find good excuses as to why they were impossible? The question is: Do you have the courage to follow your heart?
It seems to us that one of the traits of successful people is their ability to keep focussed on the ?inner desire? no matter what. They are people who believe in themselves and can close their ears to people who say ?it can?t be done! ?It?s impossible? ?You?re crazy!? They close their minds to people who want to impose limits on their lives. They have the ability to focus on the positive at all times. They don?t see obstacles they only see the solutions.
These are not exceptional people. You can do this too. All you need to do is eradicate the limiting beliefs you have that tell you that you are not good enough or ?people like us don?t do these things, or it?s all right for them but me????. To be like them, successful, all you have to do is believe and live by the understanding that everything you achieve or fail to achieve is a direct result of your own thoughts.
People who make a difference in life do not merely, TRY to do something they Do it. To try to do something is just to create an illusion in your thoughts. Have a go at the following experiment:
IF you are sitting down?. TRY to stand up. Did you succeed? Then you didn?t try, you did it. Did you remain seated? Then you didn?t succeed but with effort and commitment, unless you have a disability, you can succeed. The point is. TRY is a nothing word designed to ensure that whenever you start anything new you don?t put full commitment and courage into it. You just go in half hearted and hope it works. Guess what; whatever you put in you get out. So go in half hearted and get out indifference i.e. no success. Go in with full commitment and courage and you will succeed. You may not succeed in the time scale you wish but we promise, you will succeed. All you have to do is,
focus your thoughts and energy,
work hard and make effort for as long as it takes,
be courageous and remove or go around the obstacles you meet on the way.
You can achieve whatever you want, all you have to have is the belief that you can do it. The belief that you can make a difference in this world.
Just stop for a moment. Ask yourself:
Do I believe I can make a difference in the world?
If I were to die tomorrow, what would I be remembered for?
Are you happy with that?
It?s your choice. You can make a difference in the world, if you want to. You choose.
The mountain that stops you achieving is inside you. It?s your fear. It?s what stops you from being a success. It?s what allows you to say I?ll try rather than I?ll go for it 100%.
It?s those thoughts that constantly show you the negative, why it cannot be done. The self defeating thoughts of why you are not the person to do it because you are not good enough. No one in your family has ever done it before. It?s the voice inside your head that belittles you, disapproves of what you are going to do and even shows contempt towards you.
Pierluigi Collina, a football referee now acknowledged to be the best referee in the world and one of the greatest referees of all time said:
?Faced with the choice between challenge and fear, I never have any doubts,
I?ll take challenge every time?
Do not allow yourself to be a victim of your thoughts. Allow yourself to live, to reach your dreams. You owe it to yourself to reach your dream. To achieve your potential. To make a difference to the world. You need to write more on your epitaph than S/he survived until s/he was ?? years of age.
It?s quite simple to succeed in life: you have to be different to other people. You have to do things differently. You have to change those negative, disabling limiting beliefs. You have to keep focussed on the job in hand. You have to do it better than anyone else. When you put effort into thinking and talking and being better then naturally you feel better and you have a better life. Therefore you deserve to succeed because you are willing to keep going when others fall by the wayside.
Remember life is about learning not perfection. Go for it. You have the courage.
