Is it possible, the question “How do I do it?” is an indirect expression of your doubts, fears and insecurities about the goals you’ve chosen to pursue, rather than a
true desire to know?Do you really believe that if you simply follow the visible footsteps someone else
took to achieve a certain goal; you’ll be able to duplicate their success?
What you don’t see is the internal demons the person who went before you
which you’ll need to overcome as well. The first time you encounter them, and don’t find an answer to them in the “how to” manual, you’re lost. You’veembarked on a journey toward someone else’s goal. How could you not have if you
expect each step to be known before the journey begins?When the going gets tough, as it inevitably will
when reality fails to fit neatly into
the theoretical world of “how to” information –
what then? What reason do you haveto push yourself into uncharted waters to find the answers you need?
The profit motive alone is not enough to give youthe energy, determination, and creativity
you need to succeed…
I believe you were put on this earth for a purpose. Inside you are unique talents,and unique ways of expressing them. And there are unique needs that you can fillbetter than anyone else.When you build your business around your unique talents fulfilling those uniqueneeds, everything changes. Work becomes play
… an end in itself
a magnificent obsession
and no challenge can rob you of your enthusiasm.Where before, you found yourself on a constant merry-go-round of insecurity
paralyzed by feelings of inadequacy
… compelled to remain perpetually “in school”
before pursuing your dreams
… approaching them tentatively
… now yo
u boldlypush forward with affirmative actions that take you unfailingly toward your goals
…actually using the knowledge you acquire. Failure is no longer an option. It’s
impossible for you to entertain. And you become unstoppable!
When you’re one of the
few people on this planet able to tap into your
magnificent obsession, you’re immediately qualified for unbridled success. You
instantly graduate from the imitative to the creative. You no longer need to lookoutside of yourself for answers you can trust. You already know enough. You alreadyare enough. Nothing else is required.
So how do you find your magnificent obsession?
The first step is to get totally clear on the reasoning behind your actions. Thisdemands silence, solitude, and some honest soul searching. It means tearing offyour social mask for a little while, and directing your attention inward.
