One thing I can promise you, is that if you are chasing a great future and the life you’ve always dreamed of, you will encounter road blocks, so expect obstacles along the way. Obstacles are proof that you are pushing hard enough and trying. They are a positive sign. To be all that you can be, you will have to run through a few obstacles. Don’t run away from them, hit them head on.
We are in a tough economy. We will succeed or fail based on our ingenuity and our ability to think differently. When you run into one of those obstacles, think out of the box. This can take on several forms. Allow your mind to stretch. Your actions will never supersede a journey that your mind hasn’t already taken. Take your mind on a journey. Envision the place that you would like to be. Start with a place that is beyond the obstacle that you are facing. Everything starts with mental action. Make the focus of your intellectual pursuit positive. Spend your time and energy focused on the positive. Think about the various ways that you can accomplish your destination and remove yourself from the obstacle at hand. Think differently. Your actions will be an outreach of your thoughts. Don’t weigh too heavily on the ways that it has been done before. Think about new roads to travel. Center your thinking.
Consider taking more risk. With risk, comes the potential for greater rewards. Safe roads and safe decisions lead to safe results. Take a treacherous path. Face your obstacles. Walk a road less traveled. Allow your mind to ‘dream’ of a different landing spot.
I’ll be anxiously awaiting word of your results.
