Scripture: Phil 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Prayer: Lord. Grant us the strength to press towards our goal. Amen.
It starts with passion. We find the thing inside of us that lights us up every single day, and we begin our journey to greatness riding on a wave on excitement and enthusiasm.
But this passion can only take us so far. Eventually, the excitement starts to fade, and our motivation declines. Many of us quit, defeated, but the successful one’s forge on, fueled by a seemingly endless supply of mental strength and determination.
They have a hunger – an unwavering force that drives them to defy the odds and continue when everything and everyone could not. They want it more than they want air. It gives them the power to conquer the fears, the failures, the setbacks and survive the months, years or sticking with Plan A. My husband said to me yesterday, when Plan A fails – revert to plan A, and I say there is only Plan A there is no Plan B.
Hunger is a hard thing to hang onto in the face of doubt, but there are some ways to find and feed that hunger and stay motivated when you’re struggling to see the light and to keep forging on.
Here are six thing I have found help me to stay on track with Plan A
- Change your environment.
- Create a routine.
- Anticipate roadblocks.
- Always keep learning. In the words of Dr. Seuss “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
- Change your language.
- Nourish your body
Yes, massive success requires massive focus and massive clarity. I call it clearing the deck to focus on what is most important. But as monumental as it seems, it is only the sum of the consistent efforts we put forth. It is a process, a journey. So let that journey (and all the little choices we make each day) be fueled by passion and hunger our Dare2Dream Mindset – because putting all these together, you are unstoppable.
