So why do I this to myself? Why do so many people I come across face the same thing? The answer is simple. We don’t approach attaining new goals the same way we did when we were forced to. Enough is no longer good enough. For instance, in May of 2010 I sat in my lawyers’ office facing the most critical time of my life. He had a very sobering conversation with me. Hence, it started the process of self-examination and rebuilding a new life. I had a checklist of things I needed to get done. Things that needed to happen in order to get back on solid ground, and to start over. And so the journey began. Years later, I can look at all of the steps it took to get to where I am today. Since then, and I can say that I have accomplished so much.
I hear the stories of people who all have their own journey, their own conquests. The rise and fall, and rise again. Those who now believe that they are restless where they are in life. Myself included. And as they tell their story, I can see that there is a moment when they catch themselves realizing just how far they have come. Look at how far I have come.
I realize that there is a difference with having enough, and wanting to push harder to further myself. But the moment I start to forget about the journey in which I came from, and take that time of learning for granted, I see things today, as not being good enough. It couldn’t be farther from the truth.
We live in a day and age where we are bombarded with what we don’t have. Instead, we need to focus inward and get clear on what we desire out of life. First, let’s look at what tools we already possess. Second, let’s appreciate the value of learning as we go. Finally, let’s move towards really achieving what we want.
