“It’s kind of like you’re now working as the caretaker of the most fabulous estate imaginable, with opulence, beauty, and perfection that truly boggles the mind. And you work for some lofty, often whispered about, mysterious royal heir who none have ever met, yet for whom legends abound.
An owner renowned for a brilliant sense of adventure, ingenious creativity, and outrageous self-imposed challenges.
And you’re so mesmerized by the winding paths, the immaculate gardens, coffered rock jetties, and shimmering waterways that it just hasn’t dawned on you yet that this… has been your greatest challenge of all. Your Highness.
You didn’t hear it from me,
The Universe”©Mike Dooley, http://tut.com
Your feelings of greatness can come to reality. It all starts with ONE thought. A thought so real, so palpable that pushes you to move forward, towards your ultimate destination. There is NO reason why others made it and not you. It is important to never compare yourself to what or how others made it, as we all have different journeys in life. It is important to get inspired by the accomplishments of others, but do not let it deter you from your ultimate goal. It is not because he made 1 billion dollars that you are left with 1 billion less. There is so much abundance out there that there is enough for everyone to get their share. Focus on what you personally want out of life, and go for it. I am sure that you will get discouraged at times, but no one ever said that the path to success will be an easy one. There will be ups and many downs as well. You will be experiencing hardship, lots of failures, anger, sadness, depression, and a lot more worst attributes that you can even fathom. However, when the good times do emerge, you will look back and say: “it wasn’t that bad after all”. It might be easier said than done, but how about just allowing to experience this feeling and go reach the summit. I know you want it as bad as any other ones who succeeded, so give it time and always stay on your track to success. Embrace the challenges that comes into your life and to alleviate these challenges, always ask yourself: “What’s the worst that can happen”? and start looking for a solution from that point on. By finding it, you will resolve the fear that originated from that challenge.
This is what you need to expect from life and it is crucial that you keep yourself open minded for everything that you will encounter. There is never any optimal solution to every problem you will face, but try looking for something that will allow you to move forward, regardless of the issues. You do not want to allow anything bringing your down and keeping you there permanently. You want to pull yourself up and start climbing the ladder. You may fall at times, but it is crucial to get back up. It will certainly hurt, but once you reach the top, you will certainly feel like a new person, someone that has no limits or no fear. You want to tap yourself on the back (if you can, of course) and ask yourself: “Ok, that wasn’t too bad. What’s next?”
