Happy Hump day you beautiful people! We made it half way through! There’s no better feeling than knowing you’ve almost made it. Well maybe actually making it, but I’m sure you get the point! I’m really excited about this week’s PositiviTea quote of the day, so I’m just going to jump right in!
Now I know you’re told not to ever do this, but have you ever compared your success to someone else’s? Maybe a friend, a family member, or your mentor? Have you studied what they do, what they’ve done and what they have planned for themselves in the future? Again I know that we’re told to focus on ourselves and not worry about anyone else. But have you been able to pinpoint what the difference is between where you are and where you want to be? Yes, there may be outlying factors like the way you grew up, or that person had some advantages you didn’t, or you were late figuring out what you really wanted to do in life. However, I’m also sure that you’ve noticed their focus played a part in their success. They were laser focused on their goals and didn’t let any distractions stop them from achieving them.
A lot of us (myself included) will come up with all of the excuses of why we can’t achieve our goals. One of those is that we don’t have the time. I get that when we get older our time does seem to slip away from us. For whatever reason when you’re an adult most of those hours in the day just disappear. Well I’m here to tell you that you can still achieve your goals with a busy schedule. Those that do it, organize their time, and prioritize the things that they know are important. If you want to learn a new skill because you know it will give you the leg up in your career, you may have to stop watching Netflix every night when you come home from work. Instead use those 2-3 hours to enroll in an evening course. Keep your goal at the top of mind, and don’t lose focus. Now this is easier said than done, because of course life will get in our way. But I’ve always lived by the quote, “People make time for what they want to make time for”. You make time to watch Netflix because you want to watch Netflix. If you really wanted to learn a new skill, you would be doing that instead. Are you picking up what I’m laying down? 🙂
I know that you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to. You just have to WANT to do it! How bad do you want that promotion? How bad do you want to go on that dream vacation? How bad do you want to get back to your high school weight? It all depends on you! So for the rest of the week, I challenge you to go after what you want, really set a plan in motion to make sure that you don’t get distracted. You’ll finally start to see those come to fruition I guarantee it! Have a great day, and don’t forget to spread a little PositiviTea!
