Dreaming big is great, but to achieve your goals you must build a bias for action into your life. So choose a goal, create a plan, work hard, and stay the course. The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do. Those prepared to do the work achieve a whole lot more than those who sit back and wait for the magic to happen!
I want you to find success. This doesn’t necessarily mean “success” according to the world’s standard—I’m talking about becoming what God wants you to become, doing what God wants you to do, and having what God wants you to have.
Adopting these core habits and attitudes will help you get there:
Be willing to take risks.
See the value of today over “one day.”
Be energized by change! Don’t run away from it.
Take total responsibility for your life. Don’t blame others.
Develop tenacity. You’ve got to learn to stick with something, even when it’s hard.
Be willing to do what others are not, even if that includes grunt work—and it will include grunt work!
Finally, take action NOW. You have to start where you are, since you’ll never be in any other place than where you are. Right here, right now is the point from which you’ll move forward.
So keep moving forward, one step at a time. You’ll end up with profound favor and opportunity that you would have never had if you sat still!
