Only you can prevent your success.
They will tell you otherwise. Even those that you think mean well for you are those that are genuinely invested in your success – they will tell you that you can’t do it . . . not unless or until you align with their rules and their designs.
Your Happy Thought:
They are not in charge!
The only way they get a say in what you are doing is if you give them that position of authority.
Don’t get me wrong, I think we should learn from others and what they have been through. I think we need to take in all the wisdom of those that have gone before. I think we should listen to those that have “been there and done that.”
What we do next is the most critical element of all.
The next step is to take all that information and then filter it through our own unique design and purpose. Just because it has never been done that way before doesn’t mean it can’t be done that way and it doesn’t mean it’s not the way you are supposed to do it.
Listen. Learn. Then determine to make your own way.
Make Your Own Way
- Determine your focus. Know what means most to you so you can make the choices that will lead you closer to that point or that will keep you in align with the principles of that focus.
- Define your limits. Understand what you can do and also what you can’t do. They will give you directions. You need to know your limits so you can determine how (and if) to follow those directions.
- Dig in. Put your heels down. Refuse to surrender your BIG DREAM goals no matter how many “you can’ts” you might encounter.
There will always be a reason. There will always be an excuse. There will always be a voice telling you that you can’t.
You can choose to fall in line with those limits or you can dare to move forward into all of your possibilities. No matter how you look it – the choice is yours.
