Notable Quotable Thought Provoke-able 1

“Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes.

Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. 

Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end.  What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. 

Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.”

—-Henry Miller—-

Willing

I want to do this!     Okay.     

I will if you will.      Okay.     

You first.      No, you.     

You.      No, really, you.      No, you.

 

How often have you wanted to do something, but you…just….. don’t…. do it? Maybe it’s going to an event, or purchasing something, or asking for an opportunity, or meeting someone you’re interested in? You want to, but you just can’t do what it takes to get it.

What stops you from being willing?

What. Stops. You?

Is it because of something else going on in your world? An unresolved situation? Is it because of someone else? Something they said or did? What causes you to not move forward? What force or forces do you blame for stopping you from being willing to go get what you want? Ahhh, there’s that word…..blame.

How easy it is to blame outside forces for blocking us from achieving our goals. How misguided we are for believing outside forces are actually the reason—because they aren’t.Willing We are what stops us every time.

Yes.

We are the cause.

When I first started my business, it was because I couldn’t find advertisers for the magazine I sold advertising space for. I was very good at my job. I did everything right; made hundreds of calls, sent dozens of proposals, did countless follow-ups and visits but just couldn’t get enough business signed. Most of the industry I worked in was composed of small, small businesses without big ad budgets. Tired, frustrated and deflated, I started to give up. I started questioning my own ability. I blamed my situation on the market. Those businesses had too many options, and not enough sales. Everyone echoed the same sentiments.

Then one day when I was panicking about another space deadline short of budget, my mentor asked me what I was willing to do to succeed. “What if all these small businesses had an affordable option for help with marketing and advertising? Isn’t that what you know best? Would you be willing to become that affordable option?”

Oh yes, I felt the sting of that slap.

But the clouds parted, the sun burst out, and mercy me, the light came on in my world!

Become their affordable option!

Yes it was a risk.

Yes it was a lot of extra work.

But,

Yes, I was willing to do it

Within the year, the magazine grew to record size, and ‘PR Brady, that Advertising Lady’ was born. I developed the reputation of being a dedicated caring partner, a trusted advisor, willing to go the extra mile to help my customers succeed. After all, when they did, so did I.

And we all lived happily ever after. I look back on those early days and have to smile. Wow, what if I would have given up, unwilling to try a new approach?

If you are not achieving your goals, check yourself. We alone stop ourselves from getting what we want. We are the real cause of our problem. We have the ability and the power to choose, yet we make the choice that stops us in our tracks. We assign our ’cause’ the undeserving importance it invades our mind with. We cannot change events that occur in life, but we always have the choice of how to respond. We have the right to take charge of our life and be willing to see things differently. See the path to achieve the goal.

It all starts with just being willing.

Are you willing to do what it takes?

Willingness to change something ignites the ability to change it.

Consider being willing.

Open for Consideration

“There are some people that if they don’t know, you can’t tell ‘em.”

Louis Armstrong

Funny how life works.  As we are growing up, we might begin to develop our ideas of what we want our life to be about, and eventually we start out on our path.  We reach out a few times to grab those first obvious essentials on Maslows Hierarchy of Needs list, but then life sort of just unfolds a routine out for us.  It just happens, right?  And maybe a year, or 5 or 10 years, or many years later, we look up from our ‘life’ wondering why it’s not as we thought it would be? Or maybe, we never Open4Considerationdo look up.

I’ll never forget the day I looked up.  As though a bolt of lightening struck me between the ears, suddenly one day I realized what I didn’t do with my life.  And for how long.  And what I lost out on in the process.  I was zapped into reality! The time that passed….what I had done, and not done with it.  Oh it was alarming! I felt the sharp, stinging pangs of fear.  The pangs of failure.  The pangs of loss, and hopelessness.

Yes, I owned it, and wallowed in it for about a day. Well, maybe a couple of days.  Okay, a week, tops.

It was then that I started recalling the words of countless wise people who had tried to advise me years earlier.  Have a plan.  Seize the day.  Life is short…….I hadn’t listened.

Eventually that fear catapulted me into action.  Uncharted waters, a brand new path, and eventually into an amazing journey of a lifetime.

We all will spend our lives doing something. What do you want that something to be for you?

Are you living your dream?  Are you living an authentic, whole life—the life you’ve always hoped for?  Does the question make you uncomfortable?  Scare you?  Perhaps shoot pangs of excitement through your body?

If the question itself knocks you out of your comfort zone, you might be sleeping.

It can happen to anyone.  There’s no shame in not knowing how time passed without your dreams being fulfilled.  We do the best we can with what we have been given.  Some of us think we’ve got life by the balls, only to have that ball bounce out of sight along with our dreams.  And no one is going to tell us any different.  In my case, I didn’t know what I didn’t know.  In my 20’s, I didn’t recognize how finite life was.  But once reality clubbed me over the head, I listened, learned and challenged myself to change, refusing to let outside, or inside forces squelch my heart’s desire.

In order to really live the life of your dreams, you’ve got to wake up, and go to work.

My fear became my fuel, and I started burning bright.  I didn’t need to have all the answers.  I needed to be open to the possibilities.

Getting closer to your dream life may mean changing something about you.  A core belief or habit that you’ve held, all your life up to right now….

Changing a habit is hard work.

It requires taking action.  It requires consistent effort.

But you can choose to do it.

For starters, why not challenge yourself?

For starters, simply choose to keep your mind open for consideration.
