Go and Keep Going

I found another really good motivational poem today and I couldn’t help myself…I had to post it!

Of all of the traits that seem common to the most successful people in the world, persistence seems to be the one that actually gets things done.  Anytime I have the opportunity to talk to someone about their goals I will tell them that they can achieve whatever they set their minds and heart on if they will commit to not quitting.  Ever.  It is as tried and true a process as there is in the universe.

So I found this short but very poignant poem by Amanda Bradley that I thought was a good one for all of us to give some thought to.

Like most short poems or great quotes it can be read in just a few seconds and if you don’t give it any more of your attention than that, you might not be moved in any certain way.  But if you can get still for a few moments and let it sink in, you might find that it speaks to you in a very important and meaningful way.  Yes, I’m thinking that these eleven little lines could be a “game-changer” for you.

If you’re struggling to achieve something or feel like you’ve been pursuing your goal for a long time with no real result, let me offer you a couple of things…

First, a thought; remember that it is not necessarily in the “trying” that you will ever accomplish anything.  Often it is in the “allowing” something to unfold as a result of your effort minus the self-imposed pressure that actually leads to the ultimate result.

Now I’ll be the first to admit, that is way easier said than done.  But maybe you can think of it this way; you are destined to be successful and you are more than capable and worthy of achieving even your most daring dream.  You really just have to line up with it.  But don’t try so hard to make it happen in a way that you think it should.  Don’t get caught up in the how and when it is going to happen.  That part of it has an amazing, and I mean Amazing (with a capital “A”) way of coming together.  Just keep doing what you feel you should do and keep making progress.

Pick yourself up when you fall.  Learn your lessons as you go.  But, without even a second thought, keep going.  Always be moving forward and “doing” something that you feel inspired to do, and which you believe is leading you in the direction of your goal.

Then, let go and trust, and I’m telling you….it will happen for you.

The second thing I want to leave you with on this fantastic Saturday is the poem I mentioned.  Soak it up and go set the world on fire.

Follow Your Dream

Follow your dream.

Take one step at a time and don’t settle for less,

Just continue to climb.

Follow your dream.

If you stumble, don’t stop and lose sight of your goal,

Press to the top.

For only on top can we see the whole view,

Can we see what we’ve done and what we can do;

Can we then have the vision to seek something new,

Press on.

Follow your dream.
