Just this close to Success....
Failure sometimes means we are just that much closer to success, and the universe and its strange ways is prodding us. “Over here, this way” and we look or not, go the other way and flop and boom fall right on or faces! Often because we don’t really know what we want, or what we once wanted has now changed. We seem to round and round like a carousel and ask ourselves "How did I wind up here again, right where I started or even worse?
If failure exists, so does success. The two things cannot exist without each other.
Here’s a suggestion to reach your succssful life. Discover your hearts desires, dreams and passions and get moving in their direction.
What is your dream, your passion, your heart’s desire? (write down on a piece of paper what they are. Do it right now)
Write your dream down in words that makes you feel good when you read it and read it daily. You can have more than one. In fact why don’t you identify the top three, right now. You may find you already are living your heart’s desire or it may be something entirely new.
Which one is the most important of the three, the second and the third. (they are all important) and there may be more than three. Identify the top three.
Write them down in specific precise detail. Don’t leave anything out. How does it feels, tastes, sounds, smells, to live your dream now? Use very descriptive words. It takes time, write it all down, use as much paper as you need don’t skimp anywhere.
Transfer those three things into one sentence and write them down on a few sticky notes or postcards and place them around where you can see them until they are instilled in you.
Make these dreams a priority by creating a system of accountability to get what you want.
Be accountable to yourself through others help and don’t be afraid to ask for help, insight, advice. Set up a dream team, master mind group, accountability squad, dream, or whatever you want to call it, just do it.
Dedicate a specific time everyday to focus on your dream. Relax and relish feeling good about it and how it would feel having your accomplished your passion. Once in the morning and once in the evening is ideal. 5 minutes is a good start.
Read books, see movies about and study up on people you admire who have achieved what you want to do. If they are living write to and offer to help, assistance people who have achieved your dream. You may or may not get a response, you may get priceless information. Always be gracious and grateful. Many of my friends are well known and respected in my industry. I would not be the person I am today without their advice that I sought.
When you know what your dreams are you can say no to the things that are not in alignment with them. Set specific parameters for your dream and be aware for things that you want - Get very clear exactly what you want so when distractions come along that say "I'm more important than your dream," you can filter them out say no thanks. You're not a match. Goodbye!
Make a list of who supports your dreams and who does’nt. If people don’t support you and deplete your energy what are you doing hanging out around them? Make room in your life for the people who genuinely support you. You most likely also support them.
You must have a an emotionally prosperous environment to get it done!
Keep track of all your positive evidence of the journey to accomplishing your dreams. Keep a record book or journal of it. See what a great life you have on paper written in your own words.
Now that you know what your top three desires are in detail because you wrote all that down…right? Go back and do it if you did’nt… You can read and listen to suggestions and advice indefinitley however You alone must get into action.
Start living and acting TODAY as if your dream is here NOW. Have faith it is and have the courage to take the needed steps to get it done. It’s your life, no one else’s and you deserve to have the best life ever!
You are now telling the universe and your subconscious that you honor and value your dreams and worth. You will start recognizing things everywhere that relate to your dream.
This is how you energize your imagination and vibration to get more of what you want.
I wish you much success in your journey!
