Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
An invincible determination is displayed by those with a calm assurance that every small victory, as well as every obstacle, appears in the precise place it should for ultimate learning and success. A peaceful and courageous spirit focused on a positive purpose is able to learn from defeat, get back up, and keep moving forward. The foundation of an invincible determination is a firm commitment.
Imagine being firmly committed to your deepest values. Imagine feeling energetic and enthusiastic about your relationships, career, and all the things you want. Envision a future as bright and promising as any you could imagine.
Is this your typical day-to-day outlook? Do you adjust easily to unexpected obstacles and handle stressful situations resiliently? Do you thrive on challenges, or do you tend to withdraw from them?
Henry Ford said, "You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the spark in your eye, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of your will and your energy to execute your ideas."
Enthusiastic people are inspired by great ideas. However, they live and thrive on action while remaining calm in spirit.
Does that mean they are immune to fear and self-doubt? Are they spared from feelings of uneasiness that so often accompany moving into new territories? No, they are not.
They dissolve fear by doing what they fear. They meet and resolve conflicts. They see today's adversities as universities filled with valuable lessons. They create new maps that lead them forward with an invincible determination.
These achievers take sensible precautions and make informed decisions. Their invitation to wisdom and creativity becomes a more compelling focus than self- limiting doubt.
Challenge yourself to answer these seven questions:
What are the characteristics of someone who could obtain the same things I desire?
What would it require of me to develop any of these characteristics that I need?
What fears have held me back from making a commitment to my deepest desires?
What actions could I take to remain focused on my commitments?
Where could my most enthusiastic journey of determination take me?
What would be the first small step of my most important life-time journey?
When will I take that first step?
A Peruvian proverb states, "Little by little, one walks far." Today we can begin a compelling journey of determination by taking that first small step. We can view new challenges from a broad perspective. Obstacles that may appear at first to be overwhelming can become surmountable challenges. They can encourage growth and many enduring achievements.
Wishing you blessings and success!
