At times in life; because we see some people becoming productive with little efforts they infused on their endeavours, we tend to easily believe that the results would be the same for us too, with minimal efforts.
But, if, unfortunately, the results go otherwise, we start losing interest in our pursuits. We begin to feel and believe life is unfair.
However, I want this piece to serve as a reminder to us all. For your life to become the subject of admiration to other people, you must place on yourself tasks that will stretch us.
You must always demand from yourself and always embrace life with positive energy.
Your life begins to encounter amazing transformation from the very moment you discovered what commands your innermost thoughts.
To define your life and make it a subject of excellence, you must keep doing things that will move and inspire your whole configuration to rise to your newly anticipated ideals.
For you to reinvigorate in yourself the energy to pursue your dream and make it become a reality, you must challenge yourself.
“Dreams that change things and move humanity forward,” says Ademola Adeoye, “are usually very intuitive and instinctual in nature.”
Instead of letting the happenstances around you hold you from unleashing your inner power on your goals; spring within yourself more forces to make your drives robustious.
Jim Rohn affirmed that “You don’t have to change what is going on the outside – that is a windstorm. All you have to change is what is within you.”
Now is the right time for you to raise the bar in your pursuits. Now is the better time for you to keep making adjustments in every aspect of your life.
Now is the most important time to look into your life’s targets; impose on yourself what will illuminate your unwavering commitment and be relentless in the quest of identifying your gifts.
John C. Maxwell emphasises that “The more specific you can get about your strengths, the better the chance you can find your “sweet spot.”
This principle is what transformed the life of Greta Thurnberg – a Swedish citizen. At the early stage of her life, she discovered that if we continue doing things the same way, it would harm our climate.
To address that impending doom, she made herself an advocate of climate change. Greta Thunberg canvasses people to reduce gas emissions.
Today, Greta Thunberg is not only making wave in an adventure she challenged herself to address, but she is also becoming a role model and mentor.
As Thunberg is making strides at sixteen or seventeen, you can make a mark at whatever age you are.
Reach for a life that will never make your story to be told in the same way the stories of the people ahead of you have been told.
Make a demand from yourself to figure out something you have been dreaming to accomplish.
Raise yourself on something that can push you to be ready to miss your night dreams.
Reach for something that will elevate you and bring you the destiny that you know is yours!
By now, I want to believe that you have sharpened your resolve to increase your drive to become a conqueror in your life.
In the words of Boseman Aaron Chadwick “I don’t know what your future is, but if you are willing to take the harder way, the more complicated one, the one with more failures at first than successes, the one that’s ultimately proven to have more victory, more glory, then you will not regret it. This is your time,”
