19 Not for the Faint of Heart…
When we commit to something, we begin to access resources and abilities, that otherwise lie dormant.
With the aid of belief and commitment, we endure discouragement, battle doubt. Those qualities help us withstand the late-night onslaughts of fear and uncertainty.
It’s vital that we revisit, regularly, what our lives and goals are about. A goal can be hastily adopted, but if it’s not OUR goal, or the one that’s dear to OUR heart, there’s a possibility that it may have been taken on for the wrong reason.
A lot of goals get set, every year, because they’re conventionally approved goals. They’re not always what the person who sets them wants. They can be what his/her partner, or mom, or dad, or someone else, might want for them.
In which case it’s going to lead to more problems than solutions.
So let’s look to OUR aims, our own sense of personal purpose.
Why DO we get out of bed in the morning? What’s the point? What’s the motivation?
To be motivated is to be moved. We can be moved by desire, or fear, or any other emotion. We might desire the feeling of Freedom, or fear the loss of something. That’s an emotional state. But we’ll be driven by it. Our personal drive is ninety percent emotion, not logic.
So, how do you feel about your life, your potential, your time on this planet?
Take some time on this. Really do. Stop your day and think it over. Write a couple of notes to yourself about it.
One man did this recently and was amazed at how little he had thought about the most important event in his existence; his life.
Make voice notes on your phone, or whatever else brings the topic into your daily life. You’ll find it an interesting exercise.
And you’ll find it’s not for the faint-hearted.
