Not Losing

10 Mar

We all have goals we want to accomplish and dreams we want to make ours. We can do anything we like and with determination can reach any destination we desire. Anything worth achieving is worth working for, but it won’t all come easily. If we really want to succeed, we must be willing to face whatever complications get in the way and figure out how to overcome them. If we are very focused and clear on what we want, when problems or issues arise, we will do what is needed to fix them and stay on track. Continuing forward despite difficult challenges takes patience and determination to succeed. If the road has been long and hard, and we’re tired of the struggle, we may decide we don’t really need to win anymore. Just not losing will be enough. There is a lot of difference between thinking about winning and thinking about not losing. If all we want to do is survive, basically get a “C” in the class, we can take shortcuts and ignore details that are hard to figure out. We can all manage to get through anything but simply getting through and achieving excellence are entirely different scenarios. Our time is valuable and once it’s gone can never be recovered. Wasting it on trying to achieve mediocrity will not enhance us or bring great satisfaction. Just doing the minimum to get to the next step will bring little gratification. There is greatness inside us all, and we have the potential to accomplish amazing things. But potential is unrealized expectations. Just because we’re capable of doing something incredible, doesn’t mean the road to achieving it will be easy, clear, and paved. If we want to become the best we can be, and make our dreams reality, we must be willing to stay the course no matter what comes. Instead of merely wanting not to lose, we must want to win. With focus, clarity, and conviction, we can find great success. We can do anything and go anywhere. The whole world is there for us, and every dream is possible.

Before we step forward in any direction, we must first decide what we want. It’s very hard to push forward toward a destination we don’t really care about. If we aren’t invested in achieving the goal, the first obstacle may knock us down. We know who we are, what we want, and where we want to go. We can decide how we want to proceed, and then do what is needed to reach any goal and make it ours.

It’s easy to coast through life. We can sit back and just let things roll out as they will, and maybe we’ll go somewhere we want, or maybe not. Sitting in the back seat and just riding along is fine if all we want is to take in the scenery. But there are dreams and destinations waiting for us, and by taking control and driving our own train, we can achieve them all. Our lives are ours to design, and with clarity and focus, we can have the lives we desire most.

Today think about what you really want. Once you decide, make a plan, and take the first step forward. You are amazing and powerful and can accomplish anything you desire. Everything is possible, and you already have everything you need to succeed. Be confident. Every dream is possible, and you will win.
