“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars.” – Les Brown
To reach for the moon is to dream big. This is beyond a realistic goal, it is something the universe can offer in the power of the almighty. This is a vision that makes you set goals that will take the possibility of God and your faith to accomplish. Setting a realistic goal requires low action which anyone can reach but when you dare to dream big, most times, it’s beyond you and it will require over commitment of massive action. This keeps your mind set for greatness, which in turn unleashes your latent potential, helps you connect to the like minded people, reach out for the resources required and continuously drive for success seeing each day as another opportunity to go higher until you hit the target. Dare to dream big. Forget realistic goal and go for what the ordinary will call ‘impossible’. Such has produced airplane, what will yours produce? This kind of thinking will rescue you from the mindset of average and open your mind for greatness.
“Success is measured in terms of reaching your goals, dreams, and expectations. Your success is determined by hard work, persistence, and determination. If you are going to be a success in life, it is up to you… it is your responsibility.” – Will Horton
Never allow your first attempt discourage you if things don’t work out. Success is a process and not an event. Success is a process and every attempt should add up to your result. The reason why success is not an event is simply because the day of your breakthrough is when you finally hit your target and that makes all your actions of little steps count. So if you are not yet in the address you desire, keep moving until you get there.
“There is no one giant step that does it. It’s a lot of little steps.” – Peter A. Cohen
Faith in the negative is a disaster to success, while doubt in the positive is a menace. Certain vocabularies such as impossibility and failure must be deleted from your dictionary if you are going to succeed in anything in life. If you are going for success keep your mind on success and not failure. Don’t think about ‘if it doesn’t work’ but rather think ‘it will work’. You will generate the result that occupies your mind. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he”. Never allow circumstance to suggest failure to you. Think and feel what you want and act accordingly. Listen deliberately and walk away from those who want to sow negative seeds of it won’t be possible into your mind. Place a higher demand on yourself for success only and back it up with massive action. Believe it is possible as long as your passion is connected to it, get wisdom you need, get spiritual backing as well and go for gold.
Both the rich and the poor are given equal time of 24 hours a day to maximise their potentials. Time is a common denominator but how you use it is what determines what you make out of it. The clock keeps ticking, telling you that time waits for no one. Time gives us all equal space but you are the one who determines what you input in the space of time. What ever you set to do, you must make time for it because you will not have a reserved time if don’t make it out for yourself. Now is the time to make out time to plan how, why, when that project must be executed. Time management is a major tool to your success, so work on it.
“You will never find time for anything. You must make it.” – Charles Buxton
Create time for what you love, spend time doing what will unleash your potential.
Don’t just try to survive but live to fulfill purpose. Surviving is just to get by but fulfilling purpose is making an impression. Only the strong at heart can go through tough times and prevail over difficulty of life. To conquer over mockery, persecution, attacks, betrayal and all odds, you must be strong. You must be spiritually, mentally and physically strong to be successful in what you were ordained to do on earth. To make a difference involves strong decisions and actions but to be common does require nothing. You must act differently and creatively to dominate your field. Ordinary doesn’t require much but extraordinary requires ‘extra’, a plus, I mean something extra above others. Create that difference.
“It takes a strong fish to swim against the current. Even a dead one can float with it.” – John Crowe
Only the strong are courageous to go through difficult season.
To be successful in this life, you must be focused, I mean seeing with your mind and not just your eyes. Always keep in mind the desired end result of that great goal. Challenges will surely come as obstacles to frustrate, distract and stop you, but if you must reach your goal, you must keep the big picture of what you desire in mind and fight those frightful things you can see with your eyes by deliberately ignoring them and be obsessed with your goal and ensure you work it with massive action to success.
When you loose focus, distraction is inevitable. Your mind must be your eyes and your eyes must be positioned to focus solely on your goal. When you maintain this position, you will only see your goal and not obstacles but when your mind wavers from your goal you are bound to see obstacles. Keep your mind and your eyes on your goal. Avoid distraction, you can do it.
“Obstacles are those frightful things you can see when you take your eyes off your goal.” – Henry Ford
Let your mind be your eyes as you work on your goals. Keep your eyes on your goal to avoid distraction in order to overcome obstacles.
You need quality massive thinking and action to propel yourself into success but great thoughts without action is only a dream with no reality. If your thought pattern is rich and blessed by God with great ideas, you’ve got a treasure but if the ideas are not put to work with action, it will only end up a great idea to the thoughtful and not a great breakthrough to mankind.
Therefore, if you will make impression on the planet earth, hit your target and be tagged “successful” in your field, you must act. It will take both great thinking and action, I mean massive actions speak to mankind to invoke success in the area you desire it.
“Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind.”
Your mindset is key to your success and that shapes your perspective as well. Success is unlimited but your mindset can limit you or propel you for massive action with unlimited possibilities. Failure is never an end but another opportunity to do better. Every successful person in life has once failed in one area or the other, so when things don’t work out, re-strategize and reach out again. Success is never limited but people are the ones who allow failure to limit their actions. It is a game of mindset. Get your mind right, develop and deploy your latent potentials. Success is unlimited.
“Success is never ending, failure is never final.”
