Oprah once said, “One thing I know for sure is that we all want a better life.” We are all trying to get ahead and trying to create that better life but I see and hear so many people weighed down by excuses and expectations that someone else is going to save or rescue them and take them to the life of their dreams. You know what? The life of your dreams needs to be created by you. You can not wait for others to pull through for you and create it for you – THEY ARE NOT YOU! They do not have the same hunger and desire you do for what you want. Honestly, if you want something bad enough you are going to do what it takes to get it.If you want to run your own business, take a course, or even hire a coach, you will find the way to gain the knowledge or raise the funds to have what you want. If you were stranded on a desert island, would you find ways to create a fire to signal someone for help or would you just kick back and suntan hoping someone will notice you are missing? What are the chances you will be rescued in these scenarios?
You can create a better life by dropping excuses, quit blaming others for your misfortunes, and skip the complaining – who knows who is even listening. Take 100% responsibility for what you want. You will continue to get the results you are getting because you are not ready to change. You already have what you need to be successful; you need to do things differently. Create a new plan of action and ACT! Action is the only way you will get closer to creating the life of your dreams.
I know you cannot do it all with only 24 hours in a day so there will be some delegation required. When you delegate, ensure you are working with people who support your mission and what to help you reach your target market or audience. Follow up with them to ensure that they are on track or if they have any questions. Remind them of the mission and how they plan an important role of making this happen. Your team is essential to your success.
Don’t wait to be rescued! Create a PLAN and ACT on it!
