Everyone seems to look “Outwards” for solutions that only the individual can make. Some look to the government for all their needs. When they are not met, they get mad at the folks giving them what they have and need to begin with. Where is the logic in that?
Anytime you are not looking within yourself for solutions, you are on the wrong path. Almost every solution comes from within. Within us. WE have that power. Whether it is used or not is up to each of us.
Events can empower you or you can be paralyzed by events. You are the only one in control. Nobody else. Every shortcoming comes from within. Every achievement comes from within.
Success comes from a thought pattern and a thought process. It comes from action instead of inaction. We are wired one way when we are born and spend a lifetime trying to civilize ourselves. Every habit we are born with is almost exactly the opposite the habit we need to learn. Starting with the most basic. Figure it out.
Whether you do great things in life is solely up to you. But great things are flukes if you can’t repeat it. If you don’t understand the process that led you there. If the mechanics and foundation are not in place, then it is solely luck. But you need to only get lucky once if you follow up and understand what circumstances influenced that luck.
Like HARD WORK! Like having a GOOD ATTITUDE! Like have a SOLID WORK ETHIC! Like MAKING THINGS HAPPEN! Like having IDEAS! Like being able to FOLLOW THROUGH! Like NOT GETTING DISCOURAGED! Like NOT GIVING UP! Like RISING TO THE OCCASION! By being a PERSON OF YOUR WORD. By being a Person that DOES WHAT THEY SAY.
I don’t care who or what you are in life. What color, nationality or religion, if you don’t have those elements then life will be harder not easier. Bitter not sweeter. Unfulfilled not fulfilled. Those are the elements. Just some of them. They add up to wisdom. They add up to having a better chance of success than those that don’t think that way. It ALL comes from within. So those that lash out, you expose your failures not the failures of those you point to and blame.
I root for everyone to succeed. The point of this post is to change one person's destiny. Just one. If not, I would never use my time to write this. Some get offended, some thank me for a good swift kick in the pants.
I will be giving out a gift at TRAFFIC next week. I am hoping that there will be multiple successes from this gift. I want to change lives and the destiny of some lives. The written word is just one of my tools to accomplish that.
Have a GREAT Day!
