A couple of months ago, during a trip to Scottsdale, AZ, our good friend George Parachou from LifeSuccess Publishing picked us up at 5:30am to go on a sunrise hike up and around Pinnacle Peak. We arrived at the first overlook just in time to see the sun’s first rays pop over the hills across the valley – it was spectacular. It’s in moments like that when all doubt leaves my mind as to the possibility of all things. I used the time during the hike to focus on what I really want – on what I want to achieve over the next 6-12 months and I made the decision on that trail that NOTHING will stop me from reaching those goals. There is nothing we can’t accomplish when we decide what we want and commit to doing whatever it takes to get there.
We all have negative self-talk from time to time – I know I do. I am getting better and better at being able to stop it as my awareness of what is happening increases. I know that all the “you can’ts” and “why would you want that” and “oh, that’s just ridiculous” are all my just the last gasp efforts of a dying old paradigm – trying to get in one more dig before they are gone for good.
When you start doubting yourself or your dreams for your life – when you’re facing Mr. X head on and feel like you’re beaten or that you’re at the end of the road with nowhere to go, stop and ask yourself one right question – “But what if I could? If it weren’t impossible what is one more step I could take to move me toward my goals?” Make the DECISION that you will not stop – that you will do whatever it takes. Once that decision is made, the first step on the path will be shown to you, and then the next and the next. Until you make the decision, you don’t need to see the path and it will, therefore, remain hidden from you.
I hope you all have an AMAZING day!!
