I wish to impress upon your mind that you are the architect of your own destiny. Awaiting you this new year are opportunities that can change your life and your family tree. Whether you win will rest on your decision to put success into motion.
It is up to you to take the winning shot of your life—the one shot that will make your dreams come true. I encourage you to make this year less about pondering and planning and more about doing. This is not to say that planning is not important because it is. The focus, however, should be on executing well-defined goals—goals with which you have an emotional connection.
There is saying that “Everybody wants to win until it’s time to do what winners do.” Don’t allow that statement to define your reality. Challenge yourself to do more because you are more than capable. Expect the best of yourself because you deserve to experience enduring happiness, abundance, and adventure.
When you do commit to a passion, be sure it is the passion that makes you feel excited to wake up in the morning. Execute the vision that sets your soul on fire. Put into effect the idea that will take you from normal to phenomenal. Activate the goal that will bring you insane amounts of joy.
All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to impress them on your mind and follow up with a definite plan of action. But if you don’t go for it, if you don’t take the winning shot, you will never know what you might have been able to accomplish. Whether you succeed is going to be based on the decision you make today.
Remember, you miss 100% of the shots you do not take. It does not matter that you miss. The reality is, you are going to make some and you’re going to miss some. The key is to take the shot.
Keep in mind that adding significant value to your life is not going to be a cakewalk. You will encounter a host of obstacles along the way. But as Henry Ford once said, “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.”
No obstacle can defeat the person whose mind is set on victory. Unlock the door to an amazing future by taking the first step today. You owe that much to yourself, your fellow beings, and your posterity.
