Recently, I took an inventory of
my life and looked over everything I've done. Then, I looked at my failures and honestly recognized where my contributions
or lack caused them. This process leads me to the realization that during those times, I wasn't totally playing 100% in my
game of life.
Next, I looked at others and recognized very few actually play 100% in
their games. If a person doesn't play 100% in the game, chances are they aren't going to win at whatever they desire. Why
don't people play 100% in their games? The various reasons are too vast to put in a short article but there are a couple basic
thoughts that make people hold back. There are some simple things people can do to increase the process of
Upgrading Life to the next level.
Many people are confused and afraid. Human beings hold on to many fears which are
all based in theirs minds as fantasies. Fear is not real. We create fear in our minds about something in the future. The first
step to overcoming fear is to become aware of what we are afraid of. Next, realize
it is simply something we are making up. While we can regret some things in our past, the present is usually not too scary.
However, the future can become very scary and is the only place fear resides.
Sometimes intelligent people will say
"I am not afraid of anything. I am just stressed out." Stress is another intelligent way of
saying "I am afraid." Some people express their fears as anger. Actually, all anger is fear based. It would be a wise idea
for a person who gets angry to find what the room cause is. Once the root fear is identified, the person can begin to reason
with themselves and create a more stable reality to reduce the fear and diminish the anger.
Another reason why people
don't play 100% in their games is they only focus on the current limitations to achieving their dreams and don't stay focused
on their desired results. Anyone who has achieved any greatness in life, in anything, on any level, ignored why something
couldn't be done and instead chose to stay focused on what they wanted. This is where intelligent people can actually possess
Also, intelligent people will logically tell you why something can not be done. However, "winners" have
an advantage of not knowing why something can't be done. They only declare what they want. This advantage
allows "winners" to do the impossible. What do you see around you? You see all of the impossible things
from light bulbs to planes. These were discovered by people who did not concentrate on why something couldn't be done. They
focused only on what they wanted.
As we continue to concentrate only on the results we want and forget the obstacles
or limitations, we will win. While other people will say it is impossible, we are achieving the impossible. Also included
in this part of our conversation is lack of money, time or other resources.
want to encourage you to go for what you truly want without paying attention to why it seems impossible, including your current
limitations. When you move forward and disregard your fears while concentrating on why something can be done, you will succeed
beyond your wildest dreams.
You are now about to discover the secret as to why some people succeed in both life and
business while others go through life just wishing for something better. Welcome to the wonderful world of
Your success is much closer than you think.
