All of a us have a turning point – that moment when a light-bulb goes off in our heads, or we realize that we know exactly what we want to do. There comes a point when it all becomes clear and we become very driven and motivated to become the person we’ve always wanted to be.
Achieving goals is all about mindset.
What drives you? Why do you want to succeed so badly? What is it that gets you up in the morning and gets you going on the road to being productive?
One of my motivators is that fact that I want to live my best life and make a positive impact in the lives a others. Think about it, if you wake up today and look at your life, are you happy with it? What if you wake up a year from now and your life was exactly the same. Would you be happy without making a change. Would you be satisfied with the direction your life is going?
Most of us would not be, most of us would be disappointed if we had not grow and changed in at least one way. And if not? Well that’s is what I call the settling mentality, the victimized mentality. The funny thing about life is that it is what you make it. If your role for playing life is ducking and keeping your head down that’s what you’ll experience.
It’s time to take a dare.
Dare to pull yourself out of the settling mentality. Dare yourself to do something outside of your ordinary trend. It is only when you truly live that you can experience life. After all no great stories come from those who sit on the coach watching someone else star in the story of their lives.
My Turning Point.
I remember being young and naive. I went on a mission trip to Panama City, Panama with a group of 900. The theme of our mission was MAD: Make A Difference. It was there during those 10 days that I realized the impact that one group and one individual can have on several lives. I touched more lives during those 10 days than in did in all my 15 years.
That was my turning point.
What was your turning point? What motivated you to get started?
