You know that life is short, yet too many days don’t reflect that fact. Success doesn’t have to be something you see happening for other people. Putting in the work to become the best version of yourself is not a smooth path, and that’s okay. In a Taylor Swift song, there’s a line that says, “people throw rocks at things that shine.” As you boldly step into your power and claim your dream life, you will undoubtedly experience resistance.
Resistance, critics, and unexpected obstacles are standard on the journey to success but tend to derail success-seekers. To overcome challenges and continue the consistent growth work that leads to results, you’ll need to tap into your inner strength and confidence. You are strong enough. We live in a time in which we have the knowledge of the whole world in our hands. The path to success is clear — it comes down to the action you take and the healthy habits you build.
Here’s what you need to understand about creating success in every area of your life.
You don’t need more energy because you can create it
Tony Robbins often talks about how to change your state, and by extension, how you feel is through physical movement. When you move your body, you clear out the junk in your mind. One thing to understand about energy is that you don’t have it — you create it.
Energy is renewable. Meaning, if you’re not necessarily feeling it at the moment, you can create it through deliberate action. You can create the energy you need to take the daily effort that helps you accomplish your goals.
Creating energy happens when you understand yourself — self-awareness is a vital success trait. Knowing the action you need to take to create energy is how you’ll never run out of it. Move your body, listen to music, look for motivational sources, and leverage gratitude.
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you can not help but get that reality.” – Albert Einstein
You’re much stronger than you give yourself credit for
It’s natural to focus on all your past mistakes and how you seem to mess up. Living in the past is a limiting-belief that can keep you from moving forward towards your goals. The past is gone, and your focus should be on the steps in front of you.
What you need to understand about the past is that you’re still here. You overcame the obstacles, and you’re still committed to creating a better life for yourself. Give yourself credit for all that you’ve accomplished and the lessons you’re learning along the way.
Look back at challenging experiences in the past as inspiration because of the strength it took to overcome them. When you understand that you’re stronger than you’ve given yourself credit for, it will fuel your path to become a better version of yourself.
Your dream life is worth boldly pursuing
You’re on the path to success for a reason. That reason and why gets caught up in the hustle and bustle of the work. Whatever a successful life means for you probably involves the desire to create freedom, financial security, and a greater purpose. That life and those goals are worth pursuing.
When times get tough, feel the why behind starting this journey. When it feels as if you don’t have anything left in the tank, rest and then refocus on the vision of your dream life. You deserve an amazing life, and you must understand that. Too many people are content to exist. They wake up each day with feelings of dread, frustration, and bitterness because they know they’re not doing anything to change their situation. That doesn’t have to be you.
“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Boldly pursuing your dream life and taking consistent action will lead to process, and experiencing progress is motivating to your mind. When you can see clear movement forward, it provides the fuel to keep going. Nothing is stopping you from living an unlimited life. It’s time to go all-in on you and what you’re capable of accomplishing. Don’t settle because you deserve success and all the benefits it can bring to your life. Be bold and confident as you take action to build healthy habits and achieve greatness. Live each day committed to accomplishing more and taking this journey one step at a time.
