I find that with a little organized planning, I am able to defeat what is often trying to defeat me … and, I do not have to assume a frozen face and wear myself out to achieve my aspiration. These four steps keep me on track:
The first step to the process of triumphant living is to know what you want. Certainly, I cannot get what I want if I am not clear about what that is. I’ve learned over the years that I want to be sure it is what interests me, and not just something I think I want because the world will insist it knows what’s best for me.
The second step to the process is to step back and observe what is between you and the fulfillment of that desire. If there wasn’t anything between me and the desire, then I’d have it already. Is it a skill I need to hone? Perhaps some hard work needs doing; work that I have ten excuses trying to avoid? Maybe it’s taking a risk and believing in myself?
The third step of the process of triumphant living is the awakening: “Do you mean that if it is to be it is up to me?” When I grasp this, there is no disturbance that can permanently shake me. I am on my way to victory.
The fourth step of the process is saying ‘DO IT’ and then doing whatever it takes to get the job done. When your word to yourself is that powerful, you will never be the same again; you unleash yourself from the limitations that ‘YOU’ impose on you.
