To live the life you want and deserve, you must be WILLING to show up!
What do we mean by this?
Put the effort in, make things happen, be willing to do what it takes!
In many of my blog posts, I write about the Law of Attraction: what we think we are … we become. The Universe reflects back to us our key thoughts, whether these are positive or negative.
But there are situations where you have to be willing to put in the effort: you can’t write a book if you don’t start writing … there are many things that are in your own hands. You have to be consistent, you have to show up and be willing.
When you’re willing; when you show up the Universe will have your back. Keep your thoughts positive, don’t begrudge the effort you have to put in. Be pleased with yourself. Pat yourself on the back. If you constantly believe you are not good enough, or you haven’t achieved what you wanted to achieve, you are putting this out to the Universe … and guess what .. the Universe will agree with you. You will feel as if you’re not getting anywhere, that treadmill will just keep going.
Be willing to praise yourself. Be proud that you are getting closer to your goal. Be willing to do what needs to be done.
If it helps, make notes of the things you have achieved and tick things off your to-do list. You’ll be surprised when you start noting down the things you are achieving. The more consistent you are and the less procrastinating you do, you will find you have more energy and fighting spirit.
Here are some quotes from some very successful people:
Perseverance is failing 19 times & succeeding the 20th …
I start early, and I stay late, day after day, year after year, it took me 17 years and 114 days to become an overnight success.
No matter how talented you are, your talent will fail you, if you’re not skilled. Skill is achieved through practice. Work hard and dedicate yourself to being better every single day.
The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but on significance — and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.
Some people want it to happen, some people wish it would happen, others make it happen.
I can look back on my life, where there have been moments where things might have gone the other way. Everything is like stepping stones, and I’ve seen people I admire falter. We’re all vulnerable.
You control your own life. Your own will is extremely important …
Every hero doesn’t do this great big hero thing. They do the simple thing over and over… and they stick to it!
Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come.
I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.
