What are your goals in life? What are your achievements that make you a successful person? Try to answer these questions with no excuses.
An article by Tanvier Peart quotes, “I always try my best to be a shoulder of support to a loved one who needs it. After all, none of us are perfect and a set-back in life leaves us with a full question. Lord knows I’ve had my share. While reassessing your life is never bad, there is one habit that is comparing about your situation and doing nothing to fix it.”
You may claim that it is not easy to build your path to success. There might be hundreds of obstacles holding you back. You may not have the essential resources, knowledge or time. There are a thousand excuses of not living the life of your desire. People mainly blame their bosses, neighbors, relatives, financial conditions, or even opportunities not coming their way on why they have not reached their full potential in life.
But, “where there is a will, there is a way.” If you are truly committed to achieving something, you will always find open opportunities. And if you don’t want it bad enough, you will find excuses. Whether you rather discover opportunities or stick to blaming your circumstances is all up to you.
Zig Ziglar told us “You don’t have to be great to start. But you have to start to be great.” If you continuously wait for the perfect circumstances, you may somehow end up never taking any action. There will be obstacles, there will be challenges, and things are bound to not turn out the way you planned at least sometimes.
Avoid everything that stops you from taking steps toward your goal. Start taking action, and then you will realize that your abilities have started taking over the obstacles. You will gain all the wisdom to make the right decisions. Ideas are powerful, but it will not lead you to success; actions will.
Each of us has the unique ability to choose who we want to be in our lives. There are those who will continue sitting on the sofa and think of how they wish their lives would be, and then there are those who consistently set goals and take actions towards their version of a perfect life. The more time you take to design your life, the better chances you have of living that reality.
The decision is yours, but each decisions leads to a different result. Take responsibility of building your life. Just believe in yourself and discover the courage to start the amazing adventure of success.
