Are you feeling like you aren’t getting anywhere in life? You wake up and go to work every day. You eat the same breakfast, take the same route, sit in the same traffic, and perform the same tasks every day. Day to day. Nothing is changing. You are making enough money to survive and live alright, maybe you take your family to dinner and a movie occasionally. You go on a planned vacation once a year, but there is no excitement nor surprises. Life is happening, but you don’t feel it anymore. You’ve become numb.
If this is you, you have to wake up and start dreaming again! Life doesn’t stop. It doesn’t stop until it’s over. Don’t wait until you are lying on your death bed, regretting the fact that you never gave the extra push to have made your life amazing. The time is now and it’s never too late, until it’s too late. Don’t wait for success to come to you, it won’t happen. Greatness does not wait for any man nor woman on this planet, so neither can you. You must go out and seize it!
If you have had ideas, visions, or dreams of grandeur in your life but you felt like you couldn’t, or wouldn’t be able to achieve them, you gave up before you got started! The dreams that you have or had in your head are a sign of the greatness that lives inside of you. That magnificence is just waiting to be unleashed in the most fantastic of ways. It’s up to you to make it happen. The more you tell yourself you’re going to fail, the deeper you are digging your hole. The hole you’re digging, is a life of mediocrity. You, or the people around you, have fooled you into thinking that mediocre is ok. You are fooled into thinking that you have achieved all that you can in your life. The truth is; you can never fully realize your complete potential, but you can strive to do so, and you should.
If you set an ultimate goal of realizing your most extraordinary dreams, and potential in life, you will never reach an endpoint. You will only continuously improve your life, and your life will be amazing. You will set a goal, conquer it, and then set more goals. There is nothing wrong with this. This is the journey to greatness, and success.
No one wants to be ordinary. No one wants to ‘just get by.’ EVERYONE wants to be remarkable.
The thing all extraordinarily remarkable people have in common is that they all went out, and took their life into their own hands. They decided one day, either early in life or later when things were tough, that they were fed up with the life they lived. They wanted more. They wanted success. They wanted to be amazing. If they would’ve stopped themselves from trying, or told themselves they were going to fail. They would not have become successful.

Take a lesson from all the great people you know in your personal life and from the people you look up to on TV, movies, radio, or from the books you read. Understand this: Those amazingly successful people all took the same first step in realizing their achievements. They all had to decide that they were going to be someone others look up to. They all decided that average, ordinary, mediocre, ext. was not what they wanted their life to be. Once they understood what they did not want, they knew that they were going to be amazing. They worked for it, they never quit, and they never looked back.
If you want to be successful, and you want to be the one that your family, children, community, or church looks up to, you have to quit being fooled into thinking everything is ok. Everything is not ok. The fact that you are reading this post should tell you something. If you were ok, and you didn’t need to make a change in your life, you wouldn’t be reading this sentence right now. You made your way here to this site, and this post because you want to have a better life. You are looking for guidance to lead you to that life.
Take action and make the necessary changes to improve the quality of life that you and your family are living. Life has so much to offer and if you sell yourself short, there is going to be so much that you will never experience. The world is unforgiving, and it will deal you blows that are hard to get up from. You will be knocked down, and left there to think that you can’t go any further. Don’t give up. Don’t allow yourself to be capped off. Let your mind explode! Start making your life as great as you once thought it could be!
