Happy New Year.
And I mean that, not just as a greeting or some surface commentary of well-wishes.
This truly is a great time!
It’s a chance to shake off any stresses from the year before, gather up your successes and move forward with renewed energy and vision.
Before you do, I want to share with you a key observation I have about those who succeed – year in, year out.
This key will inspire, empower and prime you to next-level your game for the year ahead.
It’s my observation that the difference between those who DO what they want in life and those who DON’T, is exactly that.
Those who do, DO.
Those who don’t, do NOT.
If there’s something you want to do, something you want to achieve, something you want to tick off your list…
Just go out there and DO IT!
If in trying you fall short, try again, approach it laterally and experiment.
Keep going until you’re DOING it.
Every great achiever had to start at the beginning of their journey at some point [and generally take a risk].
Everyone aspiring for greatness must be prepared to walk a path of some description.
To follow a PURPOSE.
They must be willing to choose a direction and follow it.
They must have a willingness to face everything that comes with that pathway.
How else would you realise the true physical expression your ultimate potential?
So many people wait to follow a path or to experiment with following a purpose.
“Is it right for me?”
“What if it’s wrong?”
“Can I do this?“
“What will others think of me?
“Maybe I’ll wait until I’m completely ready.”
It’s essentially saying,
“Maybe I’ll just wait until that awesome potential I’m here to realise magically becomes a reality first.”
This is not how embodying your best self works.
If you want to experience the greatness that lies within, you need to give it a context, a pursuit, a pathway.
How else will that greatness emerge?
If you want to dip into the creative power sitting below the surface of your being you must first take steps.
The bigger the better.
The scarier the better.
Discomfort is a GOOD sign.
You must flirt with direction and purpose.
You literally need to have a series of dates with destiny if you want find “your thing”.
That one thing you came here to do for yourself (which is generally what you came here to do for others also).
Purpose (pathway) and Potential (that which you are becoming) go hand in hand.
If you want to discover them you must do so with INTENTION.
There’s this huge fallacy in life that some people are “naturals”, naturally talented at life.
That for some magical reason these people just ARE excellent at what they focus on by chance.
I don’t believe in the concept of “naturals”.
I don’t believe this is true, even slightly.
Every skill and trait that every human being has, they have developed.
In most cases with great intent and focus.
Generally it comes with years of repetitious behavior.
Failing, falling, getting back up and trying again and again.
Sometimes skills seem to emerge by the grace of the universe alone.
Either consciously or unconsciously, the holder of that talent must’ve given it their intention and attention.
One some level they have finessed an aptitude in one area of life that is transferable to another.
Talent can often be misconstrued as something that has been gifted.
Instead I believe it is something that great people gift themselves.
Talent is developed through…
Commitment, persistence, ingenuity and being adaptive.
It comes from persevering through external barriers and overcoming internal obstacles.
It comes from intentionally honing a craft and challenging one’s sense of limitation.
It comes from you ALLOWING time and space for your gifts to be nurtured and birthed through you.
This is NOT to say that’s it’s hard to succeed.
No. I do NOT buy into that.
I believe that progress can be easy IF you are easy on yourself during the process.
It still requires a process though and it definitely requires a purposeful pathway.
This is why I say those who do great things, are doing so because they have been in the PROCESS of DOING.
They DO, rather than DO NOT.
They know and follow a purposeful path, even when the destination of that path is hazy.
They know that success is a certainty if you just stick to the road ahead.
Just keep taking steps in the direction that’s right for YOU.
