“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more
no matter how much I begged in the evening,
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just an employer,
It gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”
It’s true. Life will give us just about anything we ask of it. Sometimes we just don’t ask. We settle even though we actually do have a vision. But do you know who holds us back from getting what we want? Ourselves…and no one else!
We’re all pretty good at coming up with things we want in our lives. But way too many times when we know what we want, we have the tendency to shift into “park”. We put off what we want until “someday” or we feel that we’re simply not capable of doing what needs to be done. That’s the biggest lie we can tell ourselves! Once we shift into “park,” we go nowhere. When we figure out what we want, there is no “park” or “reverse.” We have to put our gear into “drive” and set our vision into motion. We have to define it, reach for it and then run with it.
We all have the power to make our dreams and goals a reality. That choice remains within each and every one of us and there is something we can do every single day to get ourselves closer to our goals.
See your dreams, want your dreams and work towards your dreams. That’s the only path to ‘living’ your dream.
