About two weeks ago, my boyfriend and I were given the opportunity to go to Tampa Florida for an international training event on business, financial, success, and overall freedom for your life! While there, we were blessed to learn a lot of valuable information and meet a lot of successful individuals that motivated and inspired us to take our pursuit of our dreams and desired lifestyles to the next level. Leaving the beautiful, warm weather in Tampa to return to the frigid conditions in Upstate New York was very depressing for us, but we quickly learned that we can’t change the weather. We had to deal with the cold weather while it was here, because quite frankly it isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.
This concept of not being able to change the weather can easily be applied to various aspects of your life. Sometimes you are in situations that you have no control over, or don’t particularly care for, and that discourages you from wanting to pursue your dreams. Trust me, I totally understand. Things such as school, children, and work take a lot of your time and attention. However, for the most part, those elements of your life are probably not going to change at this moment, so what do you have to do?
Life doesn’t just stop because you have decided to pursue your dream.Often times, you get this idea or illusion that when you have a goal you are trying to pursue or a vision, everything is going to go perfectly and on your terms, but that isn’t reality. You still have to go to work, you still have to take care of your kids, you still have to study for your exams, clean the house, pay your bills, and everything else. Maybe one day those things WILL change for you, but while they are still very present in your life, you have to learn to accept them and push through. You can’t wait for those things to magically change for two reasons:
1)You’ll probably be waiting forever.
2) Those things probably won’t change until you make a change in your life (hint, hint, pursuing your dreams!).
Continue to work on pursuing your dreams despite your current situation or life dynamic. Yes, it may be hard to focus and give 100% to pursuing your dreams with everything else going on, but like I said, that’s life! You have to learn to stay motivated and driven to make your dream a reality amid the current stresses and situations in your life. When I returned from Tampa, I was so excited and on fire to pursue my dreams even though I had to come back to the freezing cold weather, work, and everything else that is going on in my life. Those things didn’t stop me from being excited or from pursuing my dreams, and they shouldn’t stop you either.
This week, I challenge all of you to stay on fire for your dreams, despite how the weather may be in your life right now. Remember, you don’t have to be average, you can be extraordinary. You don’t have to be a rock, you can be a diamond!
See you guys next Monday!
