I’ve been thinking about this topic quite often lately.
What DOES it take to have sheer determination?
To have that ‘thing’ inside you that says:
“I’m going to make this happen, now matter what!”
It’s not an easy thing to do.
Plenty of people start.
See, the struggle is real!
I’ve written about this before.
The Lotus Tree.
How the Lotus Tree grows in a dirty pond.
And it takes years for it to actually grow out of the pond.
But, once it does grow.
It’s absolutely magnificent.
The MOST beautiful plant ever.
Only, for it to get to that place.
It had to go through all the muck first.
Well, that’s what it’s like birthing a new venture.
Being the best.
Doing your best.
Making something from nothing.
That is not easy folks!
It takes sheer determination to make it happen👈👈👈
No risk, no magic.
That says it all!
If you possess sheer determination, you also need to be willing to take risks.
Because, playing it safe.
Is not going to get you where you want to be.
Like the saying goes: “your comfort zone will kill you”.
My latest risk, going on TikTok.
Totally out of my comfort zone.
And yet, it’s going well.
That’s what I’m talking about.
You have to be willing to take risks and fall flat on your face.
Because, if that does happen (and it’s happened to me several times over the years).
Then guess what?
Now you know what NOT to do.
Or, how you can do it better!
That’s really what it comes down to.
NOT giving up.
And you will.
You will have days where you will say to yourself, ‘I’m done’.
Only, on those days, you have to dig deep and remember why you started.
I cannot stress enough this statement ☝☝☝
Have a good cry (you will, trust me).
Take a break if you need to.
Then, get back to it.
There’s a great Tom Hank’s quote:
“If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great!”👈👈👈
And oh so true.
Because let me tell you.
This sh*it is HARD!
It takes a lot of work, no doubt.
The way I look at it.
You have to ask yourself.
How bad do you want it?
And if you want it bad enough, you’ll figure it out.
And I mean, REALLY want it bad enough.
You figure out a way to make it work!
Here’s what I’ve figured out for myself.
You literally have to think yourself ‘successful’.
Even before you truly are!
Because, when you start seeing yourself as a success.
You will start thinking as a success.
And what do successful people do?
They get more successful.
You will level up.
Your thinking will shift.
The way you view the world will change.
Things and people that used to be mean so much.
Probably won’t so much anymore.
That’s leveling up.
One decision away from a different life.
So everyday when you wake up.
What can I do today to get me one step closer to where I want to be?
As soon as I open my eyes in the morning, my mind goes into high gear.
‘What’s on the list for today?’
Want to have sheer determination?
Be willing to let go of everything (and everyone) that doesn’t serve you.
Because, where you are going.
Is, going to take everything you have in you.
And then some.
So, you can’t be carrying anything that doesn’t serve you for the better.
Be it people, things or situations.
No bs allowed. NineFrogs Daily:
It comes down to you and your dream.
And, what you are willing to do to make it happen!
