Accomplish Your Dreams (Part 18)

To Accomplish Your Dreams, you take many important decisions. You do not have to go in the right direction. You do not have to enter the “right” business. What you have to do is have made a decision as to what you are going to do and then you just have to figure out how to succeed at it. Once you have done the mental work, there comes a point you have to throw yourself into the action and put your heart on the line. That means not only being brave, but being compassionate towards yourself, your teammates and your opponents.

You can Accomplish Your Dreams if you are willing to walk over the edge. Courage is the capacity to confront what can be imagined. Although the world is full of suffering…It is also full of overcoming it. You may have to be attentive to your goal. If you divert your attention, it is possible that you may loose the goal or you may get diverted resulting into the loss of time, money and energy. You know! Most people give up just when they are about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown.

To Accomplish Your Dreams, you should practice being an encourager! Why? Because you may have to organize a team for the purpose, gather resources or take help from other sources. I have found that by adopting this attitude the overall quality of my life has improved for the better! How? Well aside from the wonderful feelings I get when I am able to encourage someone towards their goals. I have also been fortunate enough to receive referrals simply on the basis that someone thought that they could feel comfortable sending a friend or associate my way. It is a natural fact that with so many out there that are pessimistic if you can honestly implement this attitude into your daily life many blessings will naturally come your way! In a nutshell everyone wants to be lifted up! I assure you in your lifting up you will be lifted up in the process! You will find your dreams in everything you do.

Similarly, to succeed…To Accomplish Your Dreams, you too need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you. You can become a winner only. I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor. The highest reward for a person’s toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.

Practice being a leader in everything that you do! It does not matter whether you are the CEO of a fortune five hundred company or the custodian at the local high school. To Accomplish Your Dreams every kind of job you undertake is extremely important! And each day you are given the chance to be a unique example to someone that you will come into contact with. It is for this reason that we should practice certain characteristics. Always share a smile with those around you. When you walk into a room and everyone is keeping to themselves, be the first to introduce yourself, believe me everyone else wants to do the same and you will be appreciated by the group for having such qualities! You must practice praising others for things they do well. I can assure you that while you might not be in a leadership position now, these are just the qualities that will get you into one!

To Accomplish Your Dreams, always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later. If you occasionally fall, (and we all do) you just be sure to fall forward. You must follow, copy or mimic the successful persons. I am not asking you to do the same thing someone else has done. We all know that we have to come up with our own path toward success. However, what I am suggesting is that we can study the qualities that these successful people have in common. Believe me one thing you will notice as you follow the successful is that they might have all taken different paths, but they share many of the same qualities! So here are a few ways that I keep an eye on these folks. First I read many business related periodicals, as well as reading auto-biographies, I find that many times the “biography” written by an outsider can tilt the story the way they want you to perceive the person. I spend a lot of time on the internet doing research! Upon following these lives you will undoubtedly find some qualities that you will find undesirable, the important thing is to identify their strong suits and try to implement those qualities into your daily life.

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. To Accomplish Your Dreams, you need to have enthusiasm. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present. Seize the day! We realize that what we are accomplishing is a drop in the ocean. But if that drop were not in the ocean, it would be missed. Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you react to it. For your survival, you may have to fight. If you do not ride the waves of change, you will get pulled under by the current.

Be Happy – Accomplish Your Dreams.
