Have you been trying to achieve a goal for a while but can’t quite seem to get there? You’re not in small company. Every year we set goals for ourselves. Most people don’t reach those goals. Someone says they want to get a promotion at work, but when the time comes to work even harder and earn that promotion, they back down and give excuses. You need to be honest with yourself.
The reason you aren’t where you want to be is because of you. That might sting to hear, but it’s the truth. Its not a bad thing though, it’s actually incredibly empowering. Far too often, we are. quick to blame outside circumstances. We blame other people, places, and things for our situation and lack of results. When you take the time to look in the mirror and own up to the fact that you aren’t where you want to be because of you, and you alone, it gives you the power to take hold of your goals.
If you determine your outcome, then you can choose success or failure. Both are a choice. That doesn’t mean the path to success is all sunshine and rainbows, it rarely is. It will be a long and treacherous journey that will test your every step. But the outcome is entirely up to you.
Be honest with yourself. Why aren’t you where you want to be? Is it someone else, or is it you? Take that power away from whatever external source you’ve given it to. Harness that power and crush your goals. You determine your own fate. Get living.
