I just came across this quote again today. It’s one of my all time favorites. It’s real, raw, and packed with truth.
Let’s see if you agree.
It hit me so hard I had to make a quick video on hit..
And here’s a confession: I haven’t even showered yet!
I’m just in my element, getting ready for the day..
I was going through my morning routine and I was SO fired up about this, I had to share it right away.
You don’t get what you wish for, you get what you work for.
I don’t know who said it first.
But I love it.
It’s so important. We live in a world of consequences. Both good and bad.
Results are determined by actions.
We’re constantly receiving feedback.
It’s a scientific principle in fact..
You may recall this from school. It’s Newton’s third law in his “Laws of Motion.”
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. – Newton
It applies to physical forces here on Earth but also in your success or lack thereof.
Many of us are spending time wishing we had a little more money. We wish we had freedom, could spend tim with our family, or do take more vacations and truly do the things we love.
But, if you’re not working for it, it’s not going to happen.
That’s a lottery mentality. Waiting for your ship to come in.. keeps you waiting.
It means you have no authority over your life. You’re a victim. You’ve given it all up to chance.
Many times people will complain about their “luck.”
This kind of mindset will never result in the accumulation of all of the wishes you’ve hoped for. It only results in pain, unhappiness, hopelessness, and despair.
What’s ironic, is that many won’t put in the work to get what they truly want because it’s too painful. Maybe you’re afraid of failing. Maybe the work is hard. The mind spends time dreaming up shortcuts. Trying to find away to avoid the perceived pain of doing the work that actually leads to the results desired. But isn’t, in reality MORE painful to NOT get what you really want out of life? Isn’t it a true tragedy to not accomplish what you were born to do? What about the pain that comes from not reaching your personal purpose?
Pain is unavoidable. Discomfort can’t be helped. If you dig in and get dirty, you can have whatever it is that you desire. But, you’ve got to do the work.
You’ve got to focus.
What do you really want? Clarity brings awareness. And awareness makes action possible.
But what are you aiming for?
If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.
When you get focused. You grow your vision of what’s possible. You take ACTION and that very action leads you to create momentum and momentum is a powerful thing.
And guess what..
An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion – Newton
That’s Newton’s first law! It’s called the law of “inertia.”
I call it flow.
Can you remember a time when everything was just working right? You felt good. Life was on fire! You might even say you were “lucky.” 😉
You see, your actions created that so called luck. You make your own luck.
So, if all of this is science and it can all be proved, why fight it? The truth is, it’s all a choice. What if you you chose to harness this power? Make it work FOR you?
But, again, it’s up to you.
How will you choose to move forward now that you’ve learned these simple and basic principles? You can’t plead ignorance! But what good will it do you if you don’t act on it?
knowledge without action is futile – Abu Bakr
The ball’s in your court.
And I’m here to support you.
