Does it really matter how long it takes you to get to what you want as long as you are working toward getting there?. Working towards what it is you want should be part of the fun of getting to it. I told someone I love the other day who is part of developing something important that there will be things that just don't work. Change it when it happens and move on. I shared not to do it alone. Creating something awesome comes from listening to those around you that have ideas that you might not have come up with.
Don't be afraid of what is ahead. It will be different and challenging but it will teach us great things along the way! Plus, it makes us stronger and more knowledgeable to grow and become better in what is to come. Life is filled with lessons...just roll with it. Love and take on the experience. Learn from the falls we take and let the scars we are faced with be battle marks to share stories about. These are lessons to teach to others later on. I missed a deadline yesterday for an opportunity to possibly work with CNN! Don't think I wasn't kicking myself, I was. Just move forward. Don't dwell on it. Move onward and go for it! Why would you not want to go for what it is you want in life. No matter if we get there or not, we are building our very own legacy of what is important to us in the journey we live. Tackle it with force and let it give us hope that we are getting to that end zone. When we make our own touch down along the way, it is ours to celebrate. You will make many touch downs along the way....Celebrate them and Share them with others. It is your right to motivate the ones you love and help them to succeed. This my friends is what we are here for. Life is not all about us. It's about accomplishing the things that make us so happy and helping others to reach theirs as well by showing others that with determination anyone can set forth and reach their goals and dreams.
I knew many years ago I wanted to build a community to reach and help. I knew I wanted to coach others all the way back in high school. I knew I wanted to teach others and help them in college and so I did. I also knew I would not let anyone stand in my way. It took me a long time to figure out that my own worst enemy for a long time was myself and the fear I placed in my head was all of my own doing. There are simply some things I have no control over. Its the things that I do control that I can change to set goals in getting closer to my dreams.
There are days my fibromyalgia bothers me to where I just hurt like I think for about one second I want to quit. I can give up but I choose not to. Believe it or not I head to bed and rest my body while working on my laptop. Yes, sometimes I work right from bed and I am absolutely "ok" with it. There are days that I work while sitting in a waiting room waiting for appointments. Here is the bottom line! If you want something bad enough, why would you ever stop working towards what it is that you love and enjoy so much. Go for it! The only one that can tell you NO is YOU! You control your choice to make things happen for yourself. Now make a decision what it is you want to do in your life and do just that. Get that nasty word "Can't" out of that head of yours because you "CAN!"
I personally feel too many people don't dream BIG enough. They limit their goals due to being afraid something they really want is to big of a reach for them. It's only too big if you decide it is. The world is surrounded by many who almost become complacent to the way of the world around us and live their lives somewhat discontent. We have the power to decide for ourselves what it is we want to get out of life. We can't all get them over night. It takes steps and goals to reach the bigger Dreams. Accomplishing the small dreams along the way is half the fun. It's hard work, determination, commitment, hope and belief that will help you to reach what it is you are heading for.
Too many times we are afraid to say what that Big Dream of ours is out loud. We are afraid to have some one try to crush it. The only one who can allow others to crush those dreams is you my friend. Don't be afraid to say out loud what it is you want. Let others look at you in that silly way they will because when they do you can know this; you are strong enough to take the steps to go after those dreams of yours. The one making that face filled with doubt is not in a place in their life yet to believe that they "CAN"!
Here is a challenge for you! Tell us today what you DREAM of. Don't be afraid. My site is a safe place. Those that comment here and try to rain on your dreams will have their comments removed. Dream BIG! I believe in you! My dream is to see Dedicated 2 Life become world known and I have no doubt my company is growing to that level. My dream is to be able one day to give lots of things away to help others...I am partially there. I am always giving things away but I WANT MORE TO GIVE AWAY and I will get there. My dream is to become a spokesperson here for some great companies and name brands. Becoming a Walmartmom is one of my goals. I have no doubt I will one day be one. I WILL! There are several other companies that I plan to be a positive and successful team leader and spokesperson for and I will do just that. Why? Because I CAN! One day I plan to share my story of helping others and my love of giving to those in need and helping others build their success with my role models, Oprah and Ellen! I will share it with them one day, because I CAN! It's all part of my plan, my Dream and I am not afraid to go after it. No matter how big my dream is, I refuse to be afraid to say it out loud.
Now, I am looking forward to hearing yours. Toughen up, Gain a Battle Scar and get yourself One Step Closer to that Dream of Yours. I can only look forward to hearing what you have to share. With love and hope......~Irish~
