The Hard Truth About Achieving Your Goals
If you don’t feel scared, you’re not thinking big enough.
To have something you’ve never had and achieve something you’ve never achieved…
You have to be someone you’ve never been. Do things you’ve never done.
Let’s go a level deeper.
If the person you are (or have been) and the things you are doing (or have done) were capable of helping you reach your dreams, you’d already have reached them.
The truth is that if you have not achieved your goals, you have never been the type of person who is capable of achieving them. You have never done the things you need to do to reach them. You are not on the right path to having the life you desire. At least not yet.
In order to win, you have to be willing to fail. Fall flat on your face. Embarrass yourself publicly. Face your greatest fears.
Why, you might ask? Well, because we cannot expect ourselves to be experts in doing things we’ve never done.
If you stick to only what you’re sure to be great at, you’ll never go any further than you are now.
It takes making a leap.
And no, it’s not easy. Staying safe isn’t the right move, yet you can’t just keep jumping from thing to thing hoping that one day you’ll ‘make it’.
The good news is that you are in the same boat as everyone else, and once you learn this simple rule you can start to work on changing, improving and growing.
Life is not static and your goals will always change.
You can either set your goals and expectations based on the reality of who you are now so you can feel safe, or you can do what feels scary. You can push yourself to achieve something bigger than what is currently possible.
It’s your life. The choice is yours.
