Let the Battle Commence
And make no mistake about it, to achieve "extraordinary" you will have to wage war and claim your territory....mentally and emotionally. We are our own greatest enemy, and unless we develop the ability to fight for what we want and believe in, we will loose the joy of living. The battle against the negative thoughts and feelings that hold us back from going for it has to be taken on. How?
Get Fired up
We are going to need to get fired up, lit up, pumped up and tackle the journey with all guns blazing, metaphorically speaking of course! We will need to dig deep and not just once, but again and again and again. What makes it easier? Developing our ability to go the distance spiritually through shared support and guidance in matters of the heart and mind.
Skills Can Only Get You So far
It is wonderful to be skilled and to have strong talents you can draw from, but you cannot rely on these alone to go the distance and make the journey fun. For that you will need, spirit, humor, clarity and people who help you keep those levels high! We should never underestimate the importance of self preservation through building inner strength of character.
Even if you think, my life is perfect, I want nothing more than things to keep going on as they do now, I have all I would ever need to be happy. Even if you think all this you will still have wage the battle of the restless mind and the challenge of the human interaction, as no man is an island. And for that battle to be won you will need some mad inner skills, like a huge open loving heart, a crystal clear mind and a whole lot of patience!
So whatever you now reality maybe, invest in your spirit. Build your tolerance and cultivate the warrior within. Toughen up as you soften up. Become immune to self doubt and fear. Sharpen your conviction and fight the inner war clean and fair, using love and peace in the now as your weapons of mass destruction to annihilate any idea of ever giving up on those things that matter to you.
