Think it into existence.
Write it into existence.
Speak it into existence.
Work it into existence.
This is pretty much what I am living by now.
When I was younger and grossly naive, I would look at successful people and think about how lucky they were. I’d daydream of my moment when I’d blossom into who I knew I was suppose to be and pray…just waiting. Not being too proactive, but just enough to look ambitious. I would have all these really awesome ideas for a business and would look into it a little and when I would run into a road block, I’d kind of talk myself out of it being “not meant to be” and move on. Then I’d see someone with an idea or something similar to what I had in mind, gaining momentum and I’d be so GUTTED. I’d also pine over seemingly perfect relationships not knowing how hard people had to work to get to a good place sometimes, but I’d run into a problem in a relationship and would shut down completely. My relationship was just plain shitty and needed more than luck, but WHATEVERRR… I’d wish I could be so lucky. *sigh*
How are people moving forward and I’m still stuck? Why is their business booming and I’m still writing out dead ideas? How are those people still together and happy? How LUCKY must they be? Why hasn’t my life started yet?
Welp, quite awhile ago I figured it out. This is groundbreaking stuff here. Crazy tidbits of the Earth’s knowledge.
To bring things into fruition, it takes faith, a pinch of luck, positive thinking and a shit ton of work. A SHIT TON OF ACTUAL WORK.
Huh. Who would’ve thunk it?
Okay okay, that really wasn’t all that groundbreaking, but it it’s crazy how long it can take for something to click. I don’t know what had me thinking things would just magically fall into place, but that’s what I held onto. You have to work really hard to succeed in this life and that looks different for everyone or may present itself in a way you hadn’t envisioned. If something doesn’t work out, you have to be resourceful in finding another way or knowing when to scrap the whole idea/relationship/situation altogether.
Life just keeps you on your toes and you have to be ready. Those tough life lessons and my kids have shaken the complacent mindset I’ve had for so long and made me want to actively do better, be better, and achieve the things I had planned more than ever.
So about my little black book…
There’s this notebook I’ve had for a few years. It was like a journal/idea book. At the beginning of the year I tore out all those pages and trashed them and started over. I needed to. There was a lot of my past scribbled in there and really negative sad thoughts that weren’t helping me in the long run.
So I re-read those entries, ripped them to shreds, and haven’t looked back.
What I now write are my new truths. What I know I need to do, lists that can help achieve those things, quotes to keep me going. I have so much I want for myself and my family and in that notebook I claim it.
I’ve thought it.
I’ve written it.
I’ve spoken it.
Just have to keep working at it.
Cheers to being better.
