It is magnificent to suck up the complaining and excuses in order to succeed.
Many people have excuses for why they cannot succeed. They talk about how other people have more advantages. Everyone has heard the cliché, “the grass is greener on the other side.” I say, your grass would be green too if you watered it, fed it, and mowed it. In other words, if you put the good hard work in, you get the good results out.
There is always a reason a mission should fail. You can always find a reason that makes your dream impossible to achieve. A reason to quit can always be found. The hard thing, the challenging thing is to suck up the complaining and excuses and find a way to make things work. The people we admire, who are doing great and wonderful things are not there by chance. They are there because they worked hard and put the time in that is needed to in order to succeed.
Instead of coming up with reasons why an idea will fail, look at ways to make dreams come true. If you want to leave your job and operate your own business, make a plan. Get out the pen and paper or turn on the computer, tablet, or smart phone and get planning. Whatever you want to do, you can do it. Success is within you. Let it out! Instead of living your life from a place of fear, think about what you would do if success was guaranteed. Go and start doing those things and get rid of all the obstacles to your success.
There is one idea that I hang my hat on all the time when making plans. The idea that based upon my faith in God and my Christian walk, everything will work out in the end. No matter how hard things are a the beginning or in the middle, when push comes to shove and everything is done, everything will be fine for me. That comforting thought has helped me suck up a lot of bad days and get moving toward the happy times.
So, the question for you this magnificent day is what do you need to suck up in order to succeed at your life’s plan?
There is nothing in the world like a safe quiet place to make your dreams a reality.
As anyone who reads this blog on a regular basis knows, I am a wife and a mother of four. For those who don’t have children, this means that peaceful, quiet moments when I am not exhausted are few and far between. However, my need for peaceful quiet moments comes more often. So I created a place in my home called “Sanctuary.” It is a little room with a couch, my desk, a bookshelf and a few tables for knick knacks. I taught my family members that the Sanctuary is my special place where they are not welcome without an invitation.
One of my favorite books to look at in my library is “A Room of Her Own” by Virginia Woolf. The premise of the book was that a woman needed money and a room of their own in order to create the things they wanted to create. In Woolf’s case what she was creating was works of fiction. The idea was valid when Woolf first vocalized it and it is valid today. In order to create and to thrive, you must have the necessary resources.
