Push Your Limits-Control Your Own Life
Ever wondered why your age-mates are becoming successful but not you?The answer lies between pushing your limits,exiting the comfort zone and making personal sacrifices. A simple observation will bring out the difference. Compare 24 hrs of your day with 24 hours of your successful friend. Do you see any difference?
The most noticeable one is in the number of sleeping hours.Am not saying you sleep excessively but what sections of the night do you sleep. When you spend your evening watching movies and other funny engagements till 2 pm in the night, its most likely you will wake up at 9 am. If you manage to make it at 5 am, definitely your day will be so messy with sleep hangovers. Assuming you deal with customers or clients , you will most likely show up late and confused then blame the economy when your sales drop.
Lets look at your successful friend. Time management is the main agenda. Sleeps as early as 9 or 10 pm, has time to plan next days activities and practice a convincing sales pitch…while you are watching movies…wakes as early as 5 am and catches up with their plans. Organizes his mind,sets targets for the day and creates rules of engagement to achieve those targets. This guy knows how to knock some doors and is courageous enough to seek assistance and mentorship from experienced folks.Do you do that or you sit around waiting for opportunities from the sky?
In today’s world, thinks do not just happen because you look good,your papers are strong or you were born with a golden spoon in your mouth. They happen in respect to how hard you push your limits. Can you stand infront of a pannel and convince them to invest in you, Can you stand infront of a crowd and convince then to buy your products, how confident are you to wear that navy textured ultra slim-fit suit from jumia and walk with your head high like a millionaire?Remember, in the words of Buddha, “what you think you become,what you feel you attract,what you imagine you create.” Read more on this.
Find courage to let go what you cant change and work on what you can change.things like humble background, physical appearance and all things of the past can never be changed,they happened, but its okay, its not your fault. Do you think they affect your future? No. Then, what is??Your comfort is your limit.Comfort zones habour several pullbacks, Shyness, and low self esteem amongst the most notorious. You lack courage to speak in public because of mother-tongue influence, cant wear a good suit because you are scared of appearing skinny,cant talk to people because you fear rejection..these are pullbacks,limits and success inhibitors. When you let go of what you are,you become what you might be.
I love people-watching.When i notice such a person i engage.Its always surprising that those shy people carry the best ideas but never let them out.Why say people will laugh at you and they never laughed at anyone the entire meeting.How would you know if it was your golden chance if you won’t speak? Reminds me of times we were scared of girls but after the first conversation you become so confident.Its all in your mind, if nobody mentions it to you, disregard it. Be confident , gain courage and pop that bubble.As you begin to love and appreciate yourself, your relationship with others changes.Test yourself, change you dressing style ,seek a mentor and walk like a winner.Others will follow and emulate your style.
From today onwards, be a leader in your own life,try new thing,talk to different people and ask them what they do. Offer to help where you can. Let people know what you can do, what you are capable of and how good you are.Be on the hunt for who you’ve not yet become. Make you life exiting, relate with others. If an opportunity points your why, milk it like you gonna die tomorrow. Never say why me, thump your chest and say try me.
Keep trying, keep pushing those limits.Believe in yourself. when opportunity meets preparedness, success prevails. One day, all this pain will make sense to you.
Never give up control, live life on you own terms.
