So many people sincerely desire “the better life.” The freedom to choose our schedules, visit the vacation locations of our dreams, and the outright flexibility of spending time with the people that matter the most to us. But the reality of the situation is that, not many of us are living our lives that way. Such dreams only seem to exist in fantasy land, and we wish that they could actually transform into real life.
The fact of the matter is that, we all truly want to have successful lives, and can actually have that life if we choose. But what differentiates successful people from unsuccessful ones, is the extent they are willing to go and the sacrifices they are willing to make, to turn those dreams into reality. Successful people look beyond the horizon. They see beyond the limit of their mental perceptions, experiences or interests. Successful people are not so bothered by “the now”, but have their eyes fixed on the end result. Therefore, these people have their lives organized in ways that would drive them closer to their goals.
Successful people are always driven by the bigger picture. “What is in it for me?” “What do I need to do now to take me to my desired destination?” They do not get tied down by the limitations of their situations, but always devise ways to advance beyond them. Successful people are truly uncomfortable, in their comfort zones. They dare to step out of their comfortable confines, even when they have no clue what is on the other side. Successful people are bold and brave, defying circumstances in their pursuit of success.
If you must become successful, then you should be willing to step out of your comfort zone. You must be able to see beyond the now; beyond the scope of what is perceived by your senses. You cannot continue to do the same things, and expect to get a different result. To achieve something different from what you are used to, you must be willing to do something different.You cannot be limited by your job, career, family, environment or by any other description. You must be willing to step out of the comfort experienced within these confines, and be ready to explore new horizons. Your success doesn’t depend on your present job or career. You must begin to look beyond that. Research other fields, and become more interested in people. And open your heart and step into the realm of endless possibilities, because opportunities abound everywhere all around us.
In the words of the 44th President of the United States,
“Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch a wagon to something larger than yourself, that you realize your true potential”- Barack Obama.
You cannot say that you want to become successful, if you remain confined to what you have been used to, all your life. You must be willing to do something bigger than what you are doing right now. It is time to take action and do something about your life. It is time to take the next steps, and it begins with the desire and drive to become successful.
“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential …….., these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence”- Confucius
A successful man has the heart of a lion. He is willing to take risks, and takes responsibilities for the outcome of his actions. If you must become successful, be ready to go all out in your journey towards your dreams. And you do not have to bother about knowing what the end result would be like (only God knows that!), but just do your part by taking the next steps, no matter how tiny and little they are.
You truly want to add your name to the list of successful people? Now is the time to get uncomfortable in your comfort zone, and step out in confidence as you ADVANCE towards your Goals!
To your continued success. Cheers!!!
