When you really want something, how committed are you to going after it?
How durable is your dream?
If you have ever gone after something .. really gone after it, then you know what I am talking about. Where you didn’t take no for an answer. Where you JUST PLAIN could NOT be discouraged. I bet everyone has an example of this especially as a child… you just didn’t give up. You built something with sticks. You made a sandcastle. You rode a bike, or a skateboard, or learned to ski.
Sometimes though, we lose our intensity as we mature. Cynicism, reality checks, and fear of failure show up.
But what would happen if it didn’t? Have you had other pursuits as an adult that you went after with everything, and nothing could discourage you? You had such unshakable belief that every failure simply spurred you forward. This happened to me when I was teaching myself to make croissants. Also when my spaghetti squash field being stubborn. It Simply never crossed my mind that I wouldn’t succeed , so I didn’t give up until I did. It doesn’t mean I didn’t fail. I did. I failed a LOT. And it was hard. And I accomplished my goal.
A very different example comes in the form of a very personal story from my childhood.
When I was in second grade, I was given an IQ test. I didn’t do very well. But I didn’t know that. They started pulling me out of class in second grade so that I could work in a smaller group with another teacher (it was the principal, actually).
When I asked my parents why , I don’t know exactly what they said, but what I understood was that I was extra smart, and this group gave me the extra special attention I had earned from working so hard. When we moved across the country 2 years later, I was in a new school, and fell into a group of girls who were ACTUALLY really smart. They were actually in a smaller group with another teacher getting extra special attention but they earned from working so hard. So naturally I assumed I belonged there. My parents spoke with the school and got them to allow me participate, but I would get no credit for it. I didn’t care.. I was in the room where I thought I belonged. Over the years, through sheer determination and hard work, I earned my place.
Ultimately, I graduated from an Ivy League university with honors. I didn’t get in at first. But I worked hard to be able to transfer there. I simply didn’t give up. And I got a masters degree from another ivy. At some point in late high school, my parents told me the whole story and I was shocked and surprised… and completely in awe of what the human brain can REALLY DO.
The point of these stories is that your own belief about what you are and what you will accomplish means EVERYTHING. It’s the difference between you telling yourself when you have failed that you aren’t good enough, and you telling yourself that failure is a part of the process, and it is JUST A MATTER OF TIME before you succeed.
What’s on other side of this belief? Joy. Business Success. Happiness. Satisfaction. Money. PASSION & PURPOSE!
