Too many people just drift through life, going with the flow, never having any direction about where they want their lives to go. They are like a paper cup that blows around in the car park at the shopping Centre. It is totally at the whim of the wind and it just floats around from one side of the car park to the other. Do you know anyone like that?
The same winds of destiny blows over all of us, why is it that some people are able to make a huge success out of their lives, whilst other people never seem to achieve anything at all. If the winds that we face every day, are the same, then the only difference can be the set of the sails. How do you choose to set your sails, are you going to allow the wind to blow you wherever it whims you to go or are you going to take control of your sails from today and start determining where your ship will sail to.
There are three types of people, winners, losers and winners in waiting. Losers are people that have given up on their lives; they are victims of their own self-doubt and accepted their lot in life.
Winners are people that have created harmony in their lives and have created a set of success habits that are supporting their success. Their relationships are great, they have good health, their finances are under control, they are contributing freely to their community and they are living a harmonious life.
Then there is the vast majority of people that I like to call winners in waiting, they are that group of people that are not completely satisfied with everything in their lives and are hungry for success. They are eager to improve their lives and are looking for the guidance to help them achieve meaningful change in their lives.
Think about your life right now, where do you fit in? Have you given up on your potential or are you hungry to change and improve your life. Although you may be excelling in some areas of your life, can everyone here today say that they are completely satisfied with everything in their lives right now?
You have everything inside you right now to become anything you want and guess what if you lack the specific, knowledge or skills that you need then there is a book that has been written, an audio program made, a workshop offered or training program where you can get all the knowledge or skills you require.
Learn to start practicing a few disciplines every day that are focused on leading you to the success you desire, then commit to keep taking action until you are successful and you can achieve anything. Remember that success is never about what you accumulate but rather about what you become.
Remember that it is as easy to carry out the daily disciplines necessary to succeed as it is not to. That is in fact the only difference between successful people and those that simply accept mediocrity, the successful people commit to the disciplines needed and the average people do not.
I believe that carrying out the disciplines is far easier than the price paid when you do not carry out the small daily disciplines. Those prices are failure, divorce, bankruptcy, damaged health, lack of energy from an abused body etc.
