Bumps in the road are normal.
Don’t give up!
Get back up. Adjust. And keep going on.
Quitters never find success.
Success is not looking for quitters.
“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”
– Vince Lombardi
To be among the great, you need to be consistent.
Start your day with the goal to do better than yesterday.
“If you think you can do better, then do better. Don’t compete with anyone; just yourself.”
– Bob Fosse
We prepare, we plan but we can’t be absolutely sure of the outcome. We have to take a step into the unknown with hope that it will be all right.
Respect the success of others, because they took the step into the unknown.
« If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever. »
– Thomas Aquinas
Are you taking the leap?
“Creativity is always a leap of faith. You’re faced with a blank page, blank easel, or an empty stage.”
– Julia Cameron
There is no win without risk. Do you want to win?
Find your inspiration inside of you.
You have everything you need inside of you.
There’s a lot of technique you can find online to get your creativity working.
I’ll share one with you.
Write down 10 random words that come up to you.
Don’t rationalise those words, write them down as they come to you.
Then, you look at them and start to make connection. Those words will bring you some idea and according to those idea you’ll get some great idea. Write them down.
From that mind work, you’ll find something that will ring inside of you. Go for it, take action. Even if you don’t know how you’ll make it a reality, start to take action on it.
Creativity is updated as you go along. As you are taking action, things will come into action to help you.
“The path to success is to take massive, determined action.”
– Tony Robbins
Passion is the gasoline that will make your engine run.
When you do something with passion, you do it with a little something special that makes your actions better.
“The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last.”
– Nicholas Sparks
Passion is one of the key to happiness.
When you have passion for what you do, you can’t play small. You want to play as big as your dream let you create it.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
– Nelson Mandela
When you get up with a smile.
When you are happy to work.
When you are motivated to do a little more at the end of the day.
That’s when you can guess you’re on the right path.
Taking action is doing what need to be done.
Fear is keeping us from taking action and go for our dream.
“Your wealth is hiding under the very thing you are afraid to do. It’s time to face your fears and take action. Expect Miracles.”
– Joe Vitale
Face your fear or give up on your dream.
Your dream will become if you take action. Nothing will happen if you stay stagnant.
“The best thing to do is stare it in the face and move on. We have to face our fears and plow through. I think taking chances takes a lot more courage than staying stagnant and doing what’s safe and comfortable.”
– Terri Clark
This is why some people live their dream and others don’t. They take ‘Actions’ when their fears tells them to stay stagnant.
Getting the approbation of others is cool. But you should not build your motivation on that.
Your motivation should be built around a goal and a dream.
The approbation of others should be only a bonus when it comes.
As long as your dream is greater than your need for approbation, you won’t feel bad if people try to bring you down.
“If you care about people’s approbation, you will become their slave for life.”
– Abel Adamu Buba
Don’t become a slave for approbation.
When you ask for an advice, ask it for real. Don’t disguise your need for approbation when asking for advice.
“We ask advice, but we mean approbation.”
– Charles Caleb Colton
Smile and be happy when someone approve what you are doing. But don’t wait on that to keep going on with your creation.
Build on your dream, not on approbation.
The sheep syndrome should not your way.
You should take the responsibility for your life and take action on what you want to realize.
We want our dream to become true, but we don’t want to take action.
If we choose to stay idle, we choose to follow the dream of others.
Dreams collide. In the end, the ones that becomes true are the ones that didn’t gave up.
“Ideas are easy. It’s the execution of ideas that really separates the sheep from the goats.”
– Sue Grafton
Anyone can have great ideas. Only a few will take action on them.
Are you an action taker or a follower?
