When I told my friends my dream, they laughed! And, boy did they laugh, until they saw what I achieved.
I discovered that there are more people who will laugh at your dream when you talk about it than there are people who will laugh at your attempt to achieve it; but no one will laugh when you accomplish your dream.
The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. Like most people, it is extremely more comfortable to talk about doing something than it is to actually do it. It costs you more than you ever anticipated spending to live your dreams, than it does for you to get a job. A person who is willing to live on less to achieve their goals understands that they have more to live for.
HOW DO YOU GET THROUGH A DAY OF DOING WHAT YOU DON’T LOOK FORWARD TO DOING?
How do you make sense out of things that don’t seem to make any sense at all. Do you feel your life is unusually chaotic and that everything you try to do takes so much effort? Certain things seem to take more mental and physical exertion, which usually doesn’t make that kind of demand on your faculties. You are generally meticulous about being organized, and recently you haven’t had the time to clear up the mess you find yourself buried in. Life seems to be so simple at times, and yet at other times, you are surprised at how complex life can be.
Are you searching for ways to improve your life? Do you believe that what you have experienced to this day is all there is to life? There is so much more life locked inside of you that it would be an absolute travesty to settle at where you are. Personal fulfillment comes from having no regrets at the end of the day because you believe you made the right decisions. This doesn’t mean that you stop here as if the next day is automatically filled with the accomplishments of yesterday. It simply indicates that yesterday’s actions will get you closer to meeting your goal today.
