A Goal Worth What I Want

Just beginning in the organization and opening this new blog I feel I need to have a massive goal.  Taking action has always been something that I preach.  To take action in this network I need something so big that I haven’t done anything close to this before.  It will not only be writing.  With as much as I love writing I think this is going to take more.

Challenging youself is always so important.  No matter your situations there is always a higher goal or a way to better yourself.  If you are not challenging yourself what is the point of living.  Amazing things can happen when you feel yourself becoming more of who you are.

Aiming high will allow you to challenge yourself.  Who cares if you do not make the goal.  If you never aim for it you will never reach it.  Say you make a goal to do something in 6 months.  Even if you do not hit that goal in 6 months and it takes you a year, guess what you just made your goal.  Even better is when you make that 6 month goal and it takes you 3 months.  That is always the better surprise.

For my massive goal I want to make a video every day for 365 days.  I have no idea what I am going to talk about, most likely what I write about, success, but I want to produce massive results.  If you want to join me feel free.  If you want to follow me feel free.  If you want to connect with me feel free.

Thanks,

Every Day

daily

Every day we need to work at what we want.  This applies to everything.  It doesn’t matter if you work for someone else, work for yourself or work for your family.  Now is the only certain time that each of us have.

Take into consideration how long we live.  Let’s just call it maybe 100 years.  In an article I read a year or two ago it stated that as we are living longer we are also taking longer to grow.  The first 30 years we are essentially children.  I do not want to offend anyone.  This is not a smack to those young people who are hungry for life.  Then eventually you get to an age where you just want or maybe can’t function at a high rate anymore.

We know that right now even while reading this you are learning or hoping to learn something new.  You are being high functioning by trying to move forward with your life.  Because you are here reading this you have some form of a goal or you may be here just reading to support me as a friend or family member.

Right now if there is something that you want you need to be working at it every solitary day.  If that means you have to be out talking to people, go talk to someone.  If you need to be studying a subject to get where you want to be, study something about that subject every day.  It is up to us to take the action to work at what we love, what our goals are, what we want in success to work at it every solitary day.  If you love what you are doing it isn’t even considered working, it is a game, it is play time.

I love writing.  I try to write at least something every day.  It doesn’t matter if it is fiction, a piece on success, an article for ezine or just writing my thoughts out.  Every day something comes out of my head that’s I have to get out.  Do the same with what you want in life.  Hope your guys have a fantastic night.

The People

Thankful

Be thankful for the people around you.

As a person becomes more successful they realize that success would have never come without the people around them.  Whether it is the people in the past or the people in the future you determined that you were going to have a successful life.  This both drew people to you and pushed people away.  This is okay because that is how energy works.  Each type of energy that we put out there is the energy we will receive back.

That is why finding like minded people to continue forward on your success journey is so important.  If you want to be financially abundant you find those that were financially abundant before you.  If you want a successful relationship find people that have successful relationships.  This is about as easy as I can put it.  This is one type of people that are around you.

Never forget that before you started on this journey to success you also had people that supported you the entire time.  These people normally come in the form of friends and family.  These are the people that you really need to take into consideration as you continue your life journey.  These are the people you need to thank every day in one form or another.  Sometimes it will be by acknowledging them that you are grateful to have them in your life and other times it will be to make sure that you live fully to make them proud.

Everyone that touches your life was there for a reason.  Even the painful memories can become positive memories if you think about what you learned from that experience with that person.  Life will bring the people that are supposed to be around us.  We can have an effect on that.  Make that affect a good one so that you get positive people who are willing to help and push you toward the success of your dreams.  There is no reason that you cannot other than what is in your own mind.

Global Peace

I wrote this a little while back.  Originally I wanted to use it as a speech but with the baby and our kids events it has been almost impossible.  So, let me know if you want to see me actually make it a speech.

The world is in great need.  Men, women and children are endangered throughout the world.  Violence has been stricken into the hearts of all.  This is a call for us as humans to come together.  I believe that we can become peaceful.  It will take work.  It will take patience.  It will take effort.

What are the benefits of global peace?  We can work together to forward the human race.  We can do the things that we love instead of fearing what will happen the next day.  We can learn from one another both educational and spiritual.  Share the works that every science, religion and works that has been created.  There are always going to be people that disagree but I urge you to argue with words and not violence.

The world has broken down so many barriers.  Let us as people of humanity come together to break down the only thing that splits us.  Our thoughts could come together so that violence would be unnecessary.  I do not believe that just one government or set of leaders is strong enough in this day and age.  The United Nations was a great first effort.  They have great intentions.  Now we need one that outshines this.  we need everyone to volunteer their nations, countries and peoples.  You will not give up all of your laws.  If one country has a problem we all come together and decide what will be best.  Once this is said and done there is no hate, but most of all there is no rebuke.  This will be difficult for some to understand.  Sometimes people may be hurt but there must be an understanding.  Out future as people of Earth needs to rely on each other.

We all are human.  Whether we are alone in the universe or not, can you imagine a world where people coincide to further mankind.  My world.  Your world.  Our world.  My intention is not to offend anyone.  I truly think that we as humans are more intelligent then we give ourselves credit for.  Helping one another always has better consequences than fighting one another.

Those who have seen violence and those that have not had the fortune to see violence should see sense in this.  Some people think this would be an end to countries and religious sects.  I believe it will be a great advancement to human kind.

Thank you for reading this and feel free to share it.

Write Out the Reasons

Write out the reasons you want to be successful was an exercise in a book I was just reading told me to do.  This is what I wrote.

One reason I want to become successful is for my family.  I want to be able to give them the needs and wants through life.

Another reason is that I want to be able to help others.  This means being able to spend time doing what I can within our world community.  Honestly, I am tired of our world being separated into segments regardless of what those are.  I want to bring the world together so that we can talk with one another.  Through this speaking we will learn so much from each other.  My dream world would allow our species to move forward instead of taking a step forward and two steps back because someone disagrees, loses their temper and starts war.

War is the most tragic emotion that humans have developed.  Look at the way nature works with each other.  Everything builds together.  If we as humans could come together to work with one another regardless of segmentation we would achieve a whole new world.  This is one of many reasons I want to succeed.

This was a great exercise for me.  Although it was simple I couldn’t believe the thoughts that flew out.  I truly enjoyed this exercise and I highly recommend it to find a strong enough reason to succeed.  Original copy of my writing.  By the way I type because of that handwriting lol.

Tapping Your Passions

Today feels like a day where people should learn how to tap into their passions.  How do you find the things that you are passionate about to become successful in life?  Each person will have a different meaning of what success is.  It is up to you to uniquely describe what success looks like to you.  By finding your values, hobbies, interests and passions you will at least have a direction to start in.  The following questions will help you to define your passion.

Purple Passion

What do you want to leave to those that surround you?

One way to define this is to figure out what your legacy should be in your eyes.   One legacy that I would like to be seen passed down through the generations below me is that my family follows their hearts.  I want them to be passionate about everything they do.  If you are not passionate about something what is the point of doing it.  We get to live one time as far as we know or according to your beliefs maybe more than once.  Do it right regardless of your beliefs.

How do you want to be remembered?

Each person will want to be remembered in different ways.  When I die I hope that people see me as a person who followed his heart.  Even in the hard times I follow what I feel deep inside.  It is not always the easy path but I believe it teaches me valuable lessons.  I hope also that people remember some of the lessons I taught them when I was alive.

How do you want to affect the community?

Affecting the community can come in many different paths.  Simplicity could be getting a light at a dangerous intersection planned.  A person could volunteer or start a volunteering organization within the community.  I want to show people in my community that anyone can succeed in gathering their dreams.  It will just take persistence and continual studying on my part to see how humans behave when they are succeeding at whatever it is they are working at.

What interests you?

This is very broad but you want to narrow it down as much as possible.  Some people love to be on the computer and play games.  Some people will say one of their interests is to go hunting.  Another may be to protect animals which also touch on the community question as well.  It doesn’t really matter what you choose.  Once you get this list set you will know what to work towards in your life to live successfully and fully.
