All of us have things that we say that we really want from cars to clothes to expensive trips abroad and even a great relationship. We sit back and dream of having these amazing and fulfilling lives and we say things like, "one day I'll be able to take that trip to Paris, or one day I'll be able to walk into a store and buy every thing that I want without looking at the price tags." Or, one day I'll meet the one!" Well,what usually ends up happening is one day comes and goes and our dreams still go unfulfilled. Why is that? Well, let me fill you in on a little secret... Unless you take action and actually create a plan to make these wonderful things happen, then they will remain WISHES!
Most of us operate our lives from the wishing well. We throw our quarters into the well, hoping that a shiny new boyfriend comes flying out. Or we throw our pennies in and cross our fingers in hopes that after all of the bills are paid, we have a few dollars left to buy that pair of shoes we saw online. If you think about it, it would be pretty cool to make a wish and get a fine man AND the cute shoes, but we all know that that isn't how life works! So how do you get what you want? Well, you have to work for it!! You grind, you sweat, you stay up late working on your blog for your business. You work overtime or pick up an extra job on the weekends. You make measurable goals, write them down and take action on them. You get help from a professional who maybe sees what you don't see and helps you to gain a fresh perspective. Yes, you have to get up off of your cute little butt and start making shit happen! That is the only way darling! You don't sit around waiting for permission from your family or your friends. You don't let fear determine how far you go in life. You get up and start showing up for your life. This is the only way.
The truth of the matter is that it is painful to get what you want in life. You have to spend your time working hard, creating, stretching, spending time away from your family and friends, your social life suffers AND you may not always have the support of the people in your life because they probably just don't understand what it is that you're trying to do. BUT it is sooo worth it! So do the work! You'll feel better about yourself AND you'll more than likely inspire those around you to follow your lead.
