As we are counting down til the New Year, 2013 isn’t quite over yet. In fact, we still have 22 full days left. That is 528 hours that we can make a difference in our lives or in someone else’s. This post today is simply to encourage you to just go for it. What do you have to lose?
We allowed our fears, naysayers, past failures and money to hold us back for the past 11 months but we can change that for the next 22 days. THINK about those goals you’ve been itching to accomplish. The easiest way to accomplish them is to get started. The work won’t do itself. Go ahead and find your journal from January and turn to the page where you’ve written the notes to yourself of what you wished to have accomplished this year. Cross out what has been done, x out what you no longer want to do and circle what you still want done. THINK about how you felt when you first envisioned yourself doing this task. Now THINK about how you will feel once it’s complete. Don’t you just feel good? You’re smiling, you’re celebrating, congratulations are in order from your loved ones, you’re making income from this particular project and maybe even changing lives.
You can almost feel, taste and SEE what success looks like. The idea here is to SEE the finish line. SEE yourself winning. SEE the house you want, the car you want, the debt free banking account you desire, the family in a quiet country town, the traditional Christmas dinners, the trips oversees three times a year… You need to be able to SEE these things that will make it all worth it. Make it all make sense. What does the end of that tunnel for you look like? What do you SEE on the other side of that closed door?
Next I want you to LOVE the time, energy, dedication and hard work you are putting into this dream. You have to LOVE every second of it because you know where you’re going. Most importantly you know where you’ve been and you don’t want to go back down that road again. I want you to LOVE your journey and your destination. Life is sweet and it’s going to be even sweeter if you continue on this road to greatness. LOVE your life, the people in it, the work you choose and even your passion for the work you choose. If you don’t LOVE what you’re doing then nobody else will. And furthermore, if you don’t LOVE what you are doing then you need to find something else to do that you LOVE.
Last but not least, I want you to BELIEVE in your dreams, yourself and your destination. I want you to BELIEVE that what you are doing every single day to make this dream a reality is worth it. BELIEVE that you are capable of producing greatness and that the world deserves to know about all that you do. Faith is having confidence in the things not seen. Confidence is knowing your abilities and what you are capable of doing. BELIEF is trust, faith and confidence in something. I can tell you all day that I BELIEVE in you but in order for you to THINK the vision, SEE the vision and LOVE the vision you must first have to BELIEVE the vision and the person guiding it.
Let’s make the last 22 days of 2013 count.
