Have you reached your goal ? Are you at least reaching for it? If not why not?

Please share

take_the_first_step-1188925Have you reached your goal ?
So what do you want from your life? What is it that is holding you back? Why are you blaming others or blaming your perceived circumstances or events of the past for not taking positive action in your life?

Why don’t you simply just take the first step and do it? Do it now!!! Why not??……….just asking 🙂

I think we have all been here at one time or another. I have heard many espouse this attitude of late and therefore sounding so negative and indecisive about their life and their current circumstances. So I challenge you, as indeed I have challenged my self and others in the past, to be proactive and not reactive in your own lives. Take charge of your own destiny. You have a choice…you always have a choice…. If you put in the effort with sincerity and passion you WILL be rewarded!

“Blame and resentment does not serve anyone positively. One must learn to release these to move on and create the life they truly deserveTeresa Collins

As my good friend Teresa quite rightly says “One must learn to release these to move on and create the life they truly deserve“. We must move forward and look ‘onwards and upwards’. The latter is what I used to say to all my staff…..‘Onwards and Upwards‘ and whilst there was some light mocking  with this saying and it being associated with me, I knew that the message was getting through to them 🙂 Imitation is the greatest form of flattery after all!!

So learn from the past and do not dwell on it. Life is a series of lessons and it will always be. I have taken charge of my life and whilst I have learnt many lessons and continue to learn lessons AND yes, I have learnt some rather ‘tough’ lessons too along the way, I hope that I am now wiser for the experience!! I do believe that I am and it is why I can say what I am saying to you now through my own experience of being in the position of where you may be now……. ‘stagnating’ at this point in your life…… going around in a circle.
Is this you?

Then I extend my arm of hope and friendship for you to take a firm hold of and to remove yourself from the bog of self pity…. The choice is yours….. You can continue to wallow and eventually sink into a life of mediocrity OR hold your head high and take the first step and leave it all behind you. It is your life so TAKE CHARGE!!!

‘Oh, do what you want to do …be what you wanna be yeah!!!
Lyrics from “Because I love you- The Masters Apprentices” (listen here)  This particular line is from one of my favourite songs of my teenage years and surfaced from my subconscious as I wrote the above paragraph ( but a very pleasant memory of my past) and is quite pertinent to what I am writing here. Actually the lyrics of this particular song has numerous meanings to us all yet perhaps the subject of another blog! 🙂

So my challenge to you is to decide here and now to take a step forward towards achieving the life you wish.  The choice is yours….. go on , I dare you, 🙂
