There’s no free lunch. Luck is just an illusion.
You have to take action and pay the price to reach your dreams.
« If you want to win, you got to pay the price. »
– Bob Proctor
The price is different for each of us.
Don’t look at what others had to pay.
“If you are determined enough and willing to pay the price, you can get it done.”
– Mike Ditka
There’s no easy road to success. Take any people you see as successful and ask them if they had to pay the price to get there.
Are you willing to pay the price to reach your dreams? If you don’t, then your dream are not strong enough to drive you to do what needs to be done.
You never go wrong when you give away.
If you give with a true heart, it doesn’t matter if the person that is getting doesn’t feel the same way.
Give away even if you get a negative return on what is given.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
– Winston Churchill
There is not wrong giving away as long as you do it with a true heart.
“Our own heart, and not other men’s opinions form our true honor.”
– Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Be kind and give away.
“If I remain true to what’s in my heart, that’s all the success I need.”
– Steve Vai
Freedom is on the other side of fear.
Do you believe you are free?
If you fear that you will lose what you have, then you are not free.
You are free when you take action on your dream. You do that without any fear to lose what you already have.
We are all interconnected. Nothing is ours. Everything is ours.
You have nothing to lose because everything is yours.
“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.”
– Joseph Chilton Pearce
You can create your dream. You can do good things in this world.
Step over the fear barrier and be free.
On the wall of a pub, there’s a sign. “Free Beer Tomorrow”
Tomorrow doesn’t exist. It’s a concept, a way of thinking. The only reality is the ‘NOW’.
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”
– Jim Rohn
You can expect and hope, but if you don’t take action now, it’s only dreaming.
Nothing great has ever been created without actions.
Always do the best you can right now.
“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.”
– Bradley Whitford
Action in the ‘NOW’ will not always bring good result. But if you keep going on, you’ll get better and you’ll get better results.
Actions a linked to a need.
Taking action can be hard. Even more when the reason is not good enough.
Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.
You have the power to overcome your fear.
“A great future doesn’t require a great past.”
– William Chapman
“I am not what has happened to me. I am what I choose to become.”
– Carl Jung
You’re not what you did, you’re what you do right now.
Tenacity: Being tenacious, holding fast, persistence.
Finding good reason to give up will never get you anything good. Giving up can be used to learn and grow. But if you let it become a habit, you’ll end up losing a lot.
“You can’t give up! If you give up, you’re like everybody else.”
– Chris Evert
Be persistent in doing what needs to be done every day. Make a list of the most important one, and start with one at the top.
It doesn’t matter if you do them all every time, as long as you do the most important first.
Most people will over estimate what they can do in one day and under estimate what they can do in a year.
Small step done every day will matter more than one big step done once in a while.
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
You can build something great doing a few small goal every day.
Are you hiding your fear behind the excuse of not knowing what you should do?
A lot of people are not going for their dream because their fear is larger than their drive to achieve it.
The “I don’t know how to do it” is among the top reason used to quit on dream.
“Trust yourself, you know more than you think you do.”
– Benjamin Spock
You have more knowledge than you think.
Your instinct is sharp. It will give you good advice.
“Work hard, use your common sense and don’t be afraid to trust your instincts.”
– Fred L. Turner
Trust yourself and always look for a way to do it better.
“Excellence is the unlimited ability to improve the quality of what you have to offer.”
– Rick Pitino
