You have some amazing opportunities in your life right now—You have the freedom to live out your dreams; you have been blessed with incredible gifts, and God has a plan for your life. You are designed for success. You may have been through some storms and perhaps you are going through one right now; keep marching, you will get through it. Every failure is a learning moment and it brings you one step closer to success.
When you have a remarkable opportunity like what we have, the question is, “What are you going to do with it?” Ultimately, the decision is up to you. You have all the training and inspiration right at your fingertips, the support is beyond imaginable. You are all set up to have incredible success.
Talking about success and actually obtaining it, though, are two different things. Some people are not willing to take the steps necessary to achieve what they want, often because of fear or laziness. Others do not make excuses and they make a commitment to excel and do what it takes to have success.
When you reflect on all of this, my question for you today is, “Are you serious about success?” I mean truly serious. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it and do you have a burning desire? How bad do you really want it? Are you 100% serious about attaining your goals?
I honestly hope that the answers to these questions for you are YES. If they are, let’s make a commitment to begin today.
The first step, if you have not done this already, is to write out exactly what you want for the next five years. Don’t just talk about it, write it down. Write it down on a big poster and have it displayed so you can see it every day.
Step two is to get rid of all the negativity in your life. Start talking and acting like a successful person. Here are some “Thou shall nots” to live by going forward.
THOU SHALL NOT WHINE!
So many people go through life complaining about how life is not fair and they focus solely on the bad things that have happened in their life. It’s time to start living in gratitude, there’s always something to be thankful for.
THOU SHALL NOT MAKE EXCUSES!
I’ve heard them all. In my life, I have made some of them myself. Quit looking for reasons why it cannot be done and start choosing to find the reasons why and how it can. Make the decision that you are not looking back, nothing is going to get in your way.
THOU SHALL NOT LIVE IN FEAR!
Bottom line, losers allow fear to defeat them. Winners go through fear, but they do it anyway. You’re going to improve every day as long as you make the commitment to apply yourself.
THOU SHALL NOT BE LAZY!
If you want success, it’s going to take a 100% commitment and more on your part. People look at successful people and often say, they are so lucky. The truth is, the harder you work, the luckier you become.
Let’s go back to the question again… Are you serious about success? If you really are, work on yourself. Make the necessary improvements and make a true commitment. The commitment I am talking about does not involve just trying. The commitment is 1000%, never looking back, never giving up, and going beyond the call of duty to achieve great success.
If you want this, you’re going to need to do what most people are not willing to do. You have to work hard and work smart. There will be days when you feel like giving up and this is when you push even harder. Life is short. Success is there waiting for you if you’re willing to go get it. Live with no regrets and let’s truly get SERIOUS about your success.
How about you? I welcome your comments.
Are you serious?
