There comes a time in life when one must take that dreaded first step to new beginnings. It begins as a bit of a nudge and grows into a full-blown kick in the shins, should we decide not to listen or understand the meaning of the nudge and the direction it is guiding us to for our greater good in life.
No worthwhile thing in life is without risk, without girding our loins to go after that which we seek.. Yes, sometimes we have to make what we want to happen by creating the means by which our success can begin to take form and lead us to bigger and greater things. It could mean creating a new business out of our garage or spare room, creating a demo tape or writing a script, producing it and starring in it to have our talents recognized. It can encompass Inventing a new gadget or way of re-designing an existing product to make it better, etc.
Life is about creativity, about creating something tangible from the invisible ethers of our thought. Life is about birthing and bringing forth a dream, a desire, to express ourselves in a positive and constructive manner to benefit the world in which we live.
Moving forward necessitates us to take chances, to risk, to initiate the ways and means necessary to achieve our goals in a positive and constructive manner. Life will always give us hints about what we need to do if we but listen to that still small voice insideus. We are not without power, talent, creativity and ability to bring forth new ways to our success. If Life be for us, then, we darn well should be too!We cannot continue to live in fear of being successful or fear failing at a venture or taking a step or two back so long as we learn along the way, which translates to success.
The knowledge we gain from life, when things don’t go as planned, gives us wisdom in the way we carry on to our goal. Knowledge and wisdom are our partners in life and allow us to find them in the most unusual and sometimes most ridiculous ways. Never discount a chance encounter and always listen to that still small voice of intuition when it speaks to you.
Today, engage life and your creativity to live life anew. Today is your new beginning; embrace it and rejoice in your new and successful journey in life.
Are your dreams, desires, and goals for the new year that outrageous? Are you doubting your ability to achieve to greater heights in life and living? Do you say to yourself,” Oh, I could never…” Stop and follow your outrageousness. You are a creative being with the power, talent and ability to achieve your dreams, desires and goals. If you don’t follow your dream someone else will have the same idea and run with it. Many decades ago a person we knew had an offer to take their product to market and due to a lack of self-confidence they declined the offer thinking, “Who would buy my product?” The following year someone else, who had the same idea, started and it became a national chain.
To achieve your goals requires taking a risk; a risk on yourself, your ideas, your talents and abilities. Believe in yourself and your idea Know you are always in the right place at the right time and speak to the right people with the right words to convey your message.
If it wasn’t for our dreams which become desires and then goals people would still be living in caves oblivious to their creative genius and ingenuity.
So what if your dreams, desires or goals appear to be outrageous to the rest of the world, does it really matter? You are an original, so be original, and follow your heart and intuition to attain your goal and enjoy the end product of your success.
Believe in yourself, in what you are doing and your idea. Be proactive in your moving forward to newness in 2013. Be willing to take a risk on your creative self-expression.
Alright, here it is in a nutshell: Get a sheet of paper and at the top write:
My 2013 Goals
Then list your goals, be sure they are realistic and not so out of reach they set you up for failure. Goals are met to stretch us, to allow us to grow and realize our talent and ability, to be more of who we are and not less.
Be willing to learn from the errors and do not be discouraged.
Listen to your intuition!!
Be willing to take a detour on the path to achieving your goals, things don’t always go as planned and that is a good thing.
Set your own goals. No one else can set goals for you.
If you have children that are setting goals, don’t discourage them or make disparaging remarks about their goals. Support them with your love and heart, offering help when asked, this does not mean if a suggestion is needed when they are a bit stumped you can’t offer but be sure to do it lovingly and with encouragement; it is their goals, let them discover their abilities and talents to achieve.
Do not share your goals with anyone!! Keep them your secret, you don’t need any naysayers. If you and a mate/partner are setting goals, be it at home or in business keep them to yourself.
These are basics but remember: If you can Conceive it, and Believe it, you can Achieve it.
