The door to success is always open, there’s no lock, one has to just kick open it & that strong kick is your WORK. The world outside though keeps gathering keys to SUCCESS. Knowledge sure is power, learning more, knowing more is valuable but what about doing more? If someone is willing to get off their butt and put in some serious work, they will acquire the necessary knowledge as well. Just collecting the keys to success will not make you successful, it’ll make you a janitor for sure. A complex arithmetic problem already has a solution to it, there’s no lock to be opened to get successful. You need to learn & do the basic addition, multiplication, subtraction and division, once you have learnt that & done that, work harder, think harder and you’ll make the complex arithmetic problem look easy, it has a solution to it, just searching for keys wont help.
Don’t make life complicated than its suppose to be. Start with work & what you know. Knowing more and not doing more wont get you anywhere. Know, Do & Know more. Know more, know more, know more is like pointing a gun and staying with Ready, Aim, Aim, Aim, Aim and never fire.
Its the mind that sets the barrier & its the mind that breaks it. And its the mind that defines the new limits, new barriers. But its never the same mind.Those could be the barriers in terms of what you can do at your work, what you can accomplish in your business, in terms of your fitness, in terms of having healthy relationships or how you handle criticism. We all understand that its a mind game but where to start tapping into it is always blur. Like it’s said – “The same mind that creates a problem, can never solve it, you need a better mind”. Question always is – How to get a better mind? For sure, you can reach out to the one who has the solution to your problem – that’s a better mind. But how can i house a better mind myself? Start here …
Easiest barrier the mind creates is for your body. Ever wondered, you are bored in your mind first before your body tends to be lazy?
Test your physical endurance, power & strength. Break the limits that your mind has placed on your body. Set new limits, break them and you are on your way to tapping into mind workshop of setting new limits in other areas of your life. Start with 30 mins intense activity , workout, redefine your physical limitation and watch the limit that your mind has set in other areas of your life get redefined as well. Is there a coincident that those that exercise tend to eat better, have better control on “whatiputinmymouth”, are happier, can do more, smile more. Its starts with body and redefines your mind which enriches your soul.
At the end, its all about Mind, Body, Soul. Use body as a tool for your mind to grow!! With a better mind, don’t sit home though, listen to thy soul, go out & create.
In life sometimes when you have travelled the distance, you have seen the world, you come to a point where some ink on paper makes an impression on your heart and deep within you feel you have travelled & you need to continue not just of yourself but for others. And sometime that “others” is not connected by blood but some relations are meant not to start with blood. The letter from someone I see as my lil brother, he’s no lil by no means, you wont call a roaring giant hungry for success lil by any means, just that its the sight of him as my brother that makes me feel a BIG brother. I never knew how it feels to have a brother, never had one, so in my journey to success I found myself being surrounded by so many people who contributed to my success and I gave part of my life for their dreams, and some people came too close to me. I saw my “if-I-had-a-real-brother” in them. Some left me hurt and for some, I do anything, will do anything to see them as SUCCESS, because why would you not do everything and anything to see your lil brother succeed. The journey continues, just that the responsibility of this lil ones dream makes me to demand so much more from myself, which I will and I know how I will. If his words printed on my heart, mine should print on Almighty’s; to give me the strength, the vision, the love – maybe tough love, the heart, the mind, the arms & the legs to get what my brother desires. For some I can fight the lion in his den and win & from some I won’t even give my thought.
Time and again the sleeping giant within each one of us wakes up, it roars for few days and we take charge of our life, we de-clutter our closet, our life, we exercise, we watch our diet, we read, we meditate and we give life to our goals hammering it all the way through. And that feeling – the feeling of feeling great keeps us going for few days and then the air is let loose and the balloon meets the ground. And for months the Giant “sleeps”. How can we keep moving, keep achieving and enjoy that feeling of greatness forever.
When we try to balance too many things, we get unbalanced quickly and often. It takes time to acquire a new habit. While trying to adopt too many good habit, we are easy prey to life’s circumstances and fall way side, not recovering anytime soon. Versus, pick one habit, discipline yourself, enjoy the discipline, make it your friend and when its part of your life, its time to bring on a new friend – another area of your life that you want to discipline. And the answer to cementing habit at a time, how to keep going is – Hate “IT” with Passion.
Love is a great motivator but there is no better energy than HATE. Love can be superficial, you can love someone half hearted. How’s hatred?!?! Its full proof, you are completely involved when you HATE something. Now hate what you want to change, hate it with all the “passion”, tell everyone around you, how much you hate being lazy, being a spendthrift, not working out, not working hard, sleeping too much, not eating right or anything. More you hate it, more you want to crush it. And that single feeling will help you to conquer your weakness and accomplish what you want. Ready to HATE?
