Think about a goal that remains elusive.
From as far back as you can remember, you’ve wanted to achieve this.
You read about others like you, with similar talents, earning and living your desired life and the lifestyle that came with that.
When you think about this goal, this target you set for yourself, no doubt you feel excited. And then what happens? Yup, you go out into your day and allow all the actors, actresses and situations into your dream reality and before you know it, you are no longer pursuing your own dream but you’re at a standstill watching someone else’s life. Being drawn in by their drama. Their reactions. Their problems. Their thoughts.
Time marches on.
It’s another day.
You remember your dream, your goal, your destination.
The fire isn’t out in your belly yet…the embers are still warm. Once stoked you can be ablaze again…but not if you keep turning your focus away from kindling your own fire.
You’ve heard it before – focus is key. One goal, returned to daily, making iterations, adjusting, resetting slightly, inching closer, day by day. Being fierce about what you let in. You guard your energy because you know that any leak is detrimental to your cause.
This is what you want isn’t it?
Sometimes we set a goal and think it’s about that goal. But it’s not. It’s about what we feel we will attain when we achieve that goal.
- Feeling worthy.
- Feeling like we belong.
We don’t need to achieve the goal to get that, we can begin by giving ourselves all that we chase after.
Don’t ignore your needs. Don’t crowd yourself out and drown in the activities that are not yours to be active in – other people’s lives, worries, drama.
Do the work necessary to be the person you know you are. That feeling inside, that irritates you and makes you annoyed…that is your soul…pleading with you saying “Let’s Go! It’s time to go. It’s time for us to go after and get what is rightfully ours.”
Blinders on now…what do you truly desire? GO FOR IT!
