Everything takes time to build.
Every trip start with one step.
“A jug fills drop by drop.”
How to realize your goals:
- Choose what you want.
- Write it down on paper.
- Take action with what feels good. Take the first step.
- Be consistent. Keep going on.
Many things can be said on how to achieve your goal, but if you keep it short those 4 steps are the basic.
“The journey of a thousand leagues begins with a single step. So we must never neglect any work of peace within our reach, however small.”
– Adlai E. Stevenson
Action in the right direction is all you need to get closer to your goal.
Remember, you need to know where you want to go before you take actions. How can you hit the target if you don’t look in the direction of the target?
Feeling helpless is very bad. What can you do to overcome it?
First, we must understand that it’s not a dead end. It’s a feeling and you can change it.
There’s no automatic way to change that feeling. You’ll have to choose to work on it and take action to do so.
“We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.”
– Brad Meltzer
You have what you need to change that feeling of helplessness. Don’t wait for someone else to do it for you. They can’t.
Most people don’t want to talk about helplessness.
It’s there in the heart of a lot of people. Denying it will not resolve that situation.
We all felt that feeling. No one is immune to it.
Let’s face reality and do our best to help those who are stuck in it.
Love and compassion is the way to go.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to show some compassion and you don’t, take some time to think about it. Reassure yourself that it’s ok to show compassion even if the person in front of you doesn’t deserve it. You don’t have to be the one to choose if you compassion is justified or not.
You don’t have to do a lot. Just a warm friendly smile can be enough.
“I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego. I believe we’re all put on this planet for a purpose, and we all have a different purpose… When you connect with that love and that compassion, that’s when everything unfolds.”
– Ellen DeGeneres
You can never go wrong with love.
Don’t expect anything. Just give it away.
“Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.”
– Elbert Hubbard
Find something that you like in your job.
The more things you like with your job, the more you’ll like your job. This may seems complicated, but if you can find something to like with you job, your job will be a lot easier.
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
– Albert Schweitzer
So, if you want to be successful in your job, you need to like something about what you do.
Too many people want to do only what they like. They focus on one or two things and just want to do that. It’s an impossible dream.
Yes you could end up doing something you really like, but there’s always a little something in it that you don’t. If you can find the will to do what you don’t like, it will become a drive into becoming the best in that fields.
Give away the extra that you have.
Give away with a true heart.
Give away with joy.
“To give without any reward, or any notice, has a special quality of its own.”
– Anne Morrow Lindbergh
You’ll feel great about it. It will bring new energy and a drive to accomplish your dream.
Friendship will come out of those actions. Good actions brings good relation.
All good actions are good, even if you do them without a true heart. You can never go wrong with a good action.
Confidence is build. Usually with a lot of mistake and hard work.
To build your confidence, you’ll have to face your fear and take action. You know what needs to be done.
“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
– Norman Vincent Peale
You’ll make mistakes, we all do. It’s what you do next that matters.
After a mistake, adjust and keep going on.
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”
– Dale Carnegie
There is no good anger.
If you think you need anger to drive you into action, those actions will be tinted with that bad energy.
“You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”
You build your drive without anger. You can build a positive action drive with your dream to fuel them.
“Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.”
– Joel Osteen
Little or big, nothing should drive you into rage or anger. Stay out of those negative emotions and focus on solution to keep yourself free from them.
Your dream is giving you the fuel to drive your action. Don’t let anger mix into those actions. Keep them clean and positive.
“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.”
– Mark Twain
