The aspirations to live life on your terms and to live to your full capabilities is more noble than just confining yourself to a life of mediocrity doing the same things day after day and being a sheep for the rest of your life. Respect is given to those who are in the arena battling for their dreams and who are striving to live life at a higher standard.
Be bold, and be fearless and hunt down your goals, be the lion that never sleeps, be the hunter who does not rest until you catch the prey, be the one who makes it your mission to be of service in this world and leave a lasting impact of goodness for generations to come.
It is easy to be a critic who sits on the sidelines living life in a state of conformity confined to a timid existence because of your fears that have manifested in your imagination. Take a chance on yourself and find out what you love to do and get started on a new path, the path that resonates with who you truly want to be, do not just waste your life living a lie. It is easy to be average, it takes no effort to be like everyone else, it takes courage to be the person that you truly want to be. In a world that is trying to make you like everyone else have the audacity to be authentic and be the person that yearns to be brought forth from within. Listen to that still small voice within you that will lead you to your calling.
There is nothing worse than living a life that is well below your true potential because you did not make the time to develop yourself and invest in success. Personal development is crucial to success, as stated by Jim Rohn, “Income rarely exceeds personal development.” If you want to take your life to new heights you must develop yourself, as you will never rise to a new level by being the same. Invest in yourself; it is one of the best investments that you shall ever make.
Take a look around at the majority of people, they say they want success, they say they want more money, and they want to improve their situation, but they never seem to allocate time, money, and effort to those things that truly matter and will help move their life in a new direction. You need to study success, learn about financial freedom, and make changes in your daily life in order to see changes take place. Everyone wants more but they don’t do more of those things that make the difference. Don’t get stuck in a life of mediocrity doing what the mediocre people do on a daily basis, which is how you end up living a life of disappointment. Conformity is fatal; if you are not careful you will end up being average.
Those aspects that matter the most are not taught in school, such as success, discipline, time-management, financial freedom, goals, dreams, courage, fearlessness, grit, ambition, motivation, determination, drive and hunger to live life on your terms. You must make a determined effort to self-educate yourself, as your success is dependent upon you stepping it up to a new level, your success is your priority, no one else’s. You are the captain of the ship, you are at the helm, so take charge of your life today and take action so that you can rise above the crowd and go boldly to new terrain that seemed nothing but a distant mirage. Use your imagination to envision the life of your dreams and see yourself achieving your dreams within your minds eye, doing that will spur you on to take action, as everything is created twice, once in the mind and then in reality.
So waste no more time being among the crowd, the naysayers, the sheep, and the average folk who have resigned themselves to the life that they have stumbled into and don’t ever seem to want to do anything different but sit around complaining about their life. You have within you the strength, the power, the courage, the drive, and the potential to live a life of greatness. So rise up and take your life to wherever you want to go by going out into the world and doing all that you can truly do. No more of this mediocre living, be led by the possibilities of what could be and be driven to be the best you as you are more capable than you know. If people would just believe in themselves and take action they would accomplish amazing things that will astound them.
Here is my word of advice to you, get into the arena of life rather than just watching others living life on their terms, get up and fight for what you truly want. The time is always right to chase your dreams and be the person that you have always wanted to be. All the best in 2017 and may you continue to rise and soar into greatness.
