You are going to walk away from reading this invigorated, ready to take on the world.
The truth is you are great.
I believe you were fearfully and wonderfully made.
I am not saying you need to see it that way, but I believe that is the way it is.
Know Thyself and
to Thine Own Self Be True “First”
The most important step in the process of personal growth is getting to know yourself. This sounds easy enough. You are you, after all. Believe it or not though, it isn’t something most people think about.
It isn’t hard to get to know yourself, but you do need to be present.
Being present in every moment allows you to take life in and really see things in a more all encompassing way. Think about the things you are seeing. Listen to the sounds around you. Soak it all in.
One of the best ways that you can get to know who you are is by spending time alone.
Don’t just go sit in a room somewhere.
Get out in nature. Be with you in the fresh air, under the stars, on a shady path, or wherever you determine you want your alone time to take you. Make spending time with yourself an enjoyable experience that you look forward to.
All you must do is listen.
In order to listen, you need to remove all of the distractions. I recommend me time for an hour a day. When you are taking it all in, really examine the way you feel. Think about the perceived problems you have, and follow the feeling back to the root. Work things out within yourself, and ignore the outside world. You know who you are better than anyone, but you are living in a world where the odds are stacked against you,
Each of us are a little bit of all of the people we have ever come into contact with. We pick up on things, and let those things in other people slip into our thought process. We adopt these as a part of who we are, but it isn’t who we really are.
Let me try to explain.
You are the deeper entity beneath the surface of all stigma.
You are the one sorting through all of the data and determining which part of your multiple personality inscribed persona you want to put on today. That isn’t who you are. When you are spending time with yourself, you want to go beyond the surface into the deeper layers of who you are.
Really examine the desires of your heart and know, because those desires exist, you have the means within you to achieve them.
Your Accomplishments are Written on Your Heart
This is where it gets good.
The knowledge you have, containing the key to achieving whatever the desires of your heart are have been in you from the time of birth.
You were determined from the moment of conception. Every little piece of who you are as an individual and what you are able to accomplish is wrapped up inside of your wonderful DNA.
You have a unique combination of genetic material that no one else on Earth will ever have. That not only makes you pretty special. It makes you a miracle, and as a miracle, you have the ability to overcome all odds. You are here aren’t you?
The first thing you MUST do in determining the greatness within you, is get to know who you are, and recognize what you are capable of.
There is nothing that can keep you from it.
Nothing now or EVER!
Here for a Reason
This life is no accident.
If you think it is, I don’t know what to say. I definitely don’t want to offend anyone, but it is what it is. There is definitely a Creator, and you and I are here for a purpose.
You know what that purpose is.
You might not think about it anymore, but you used to.
Your vision was once much more clear than it is now.
That is because there was less distraction.
The magic of childhood allows our dreams to be unaltered.
If you were put here for a reason, and you have desires within you, you also have the ability to accomplish those desires.
You MUST accurately plan your pursuit
You determine where you are going to end up, because those dreams you have are written inside of you. The greatness of who you are is already there.
You MUST focus on where that end result is along the way so you know what direction to go.
Of course you want to set short term goals, but your life is going to work itself out according to the path you are on. If you are looking at that flag post down the road, and you are headed in that direction, things will work themselves out along the way, I promise they will.
Visualizing exactly where you want to be and why you want to be there is the fuel that is going to get you there.
Get in a habit of asking yourself why about everything.
Why is failure NO option.
Why is success the only outcome?
Build your confidence in what the outcome will be and see it clearly.
So, the first thing you must do is get to know yourself and listen to your purpose and exactly what you want your outcome to be.
Secondly, you must listen to your outcome and visualize it, knowing it is going to be a reality. This is something that you must do daily. Never let the vision of your outcome leave your mind, but build on it.
Believe in the Outcome and TAKE ACTION
If you get to know yourself and see the outcome of your dreams as they are, you can’t sit around on the couch waiting on something to happen.
You must believe in it.
Take hold of what you know to be true and run with it.
Faith, derived from Latin fides and Old French feid, is confidence or trust in a person, thing, or concept. In the context of religion, one can define faith as confidence or trust in a particular system of religious belief.
Religious people often think of faith as confidence based on a perceived degree of warrant, while others who are more skeptical of religion tend to think of faith as simply belief without evidence.
You and I are moving into the future regardless.
The time is going to pass.
Minutes are going to tick by, and the longer you wait, the less likely it is you will ever make it.
You need to take massive action in the direction of your goals.
I said that you need to believe it.
What I actually meant is you need to have FAITH in it.
Faith is the Awe Inspiring motivation we need to push forward.
This is a world that is full of opportunity. You are greatness. The fact that you are here right now makes you great by definition. A robot capable of doing what you are capable of doing is worth trillions of dollars. See yourself having that kind of value, because you do.
In summary, here are the 3 simple steps to MASSIVE success.
- KNOW yourself. Be who you are. Be proud of who you are. Know that all of this exists partly because you are here, and if you weren’t here, it wouldn’t be the same without you.
- Accurately SEE your Vision – and know you are able to accomplish it. Make a plan based on your vision and determine you will stick to it. Do not wait for the plan to jump out at you, build your plan with an accurate vision based on the desires of your heart.
- Take ACTION and move in the direction of where you need to go. Don’t question it. Have faith in who you are and what you can accomplish. You’ve got the goods. You are in the driver’s seat. Take action and move into GREATNESS!
