Want It More

We all have things that we want.  Dreams for the future.  Goals to accomplish.  I have them. You have them.  Everyone has them. How many people will see them actually happen?  Research tells us only eight percent.  92 percent of people will never see their goals and dreams come to fruition.

Why? It could be lack of a plan to accomplish it or possibly getting discouraged when things get tough but one of the main reasons is that it’s just down right risky and scary.  Fear stops more dreams and stunts more growth than we care to know.

I don’t care for the phrase “you have to want it more” in competitive situations with opponents but when it comes to competing against yourself it can apply.

Our biggest opponent is often times ourselves and the thoughts and beliefs in our own mind. To reach our dreams and accomplish our goals we have to win the battle with ourself.

You’re not alone if it scares you but get yourself into the eight percent and want it more than it scares you.  You can do it.

I’m cheering for you.
