There are those who make things happen; those who watch things happen; and those who don’t know what the heck happened.
What kind of person are you? And why should it matter? Because your happiness and success in life will be determined by what kind of person you are.
Those who make things happen
These are the people that know what they want, have a clear vision of the outcome, and take consistent action to make it happen. That doesn’t mean that they don’t feel fear. They do – but they take action anyway. That’s why these people always seem to get what they want. Contrary to popular belief though, success isn’t handed to them; they work for it! You know these people just by being in their presence. It’s who they’ve become on the journey, not what they’ve achieved that makes them stand out in the crowd.
Those who watch things happen
This is where the majority of our population resides. It’s easier to watch the “doers’ get things done than put ourselves out there and risk failing, being scrutinized, having people point out our misfortunes. These people are just one small step from living their greatness. If only they could dare to dream again and move past their fear.
Those who don’t know what the heck happened
Yes, believe it or not, the result of living as one who just watches things happen, ends up wondering what the heck happened. At the end of your life (which you can’t predict), what will you be thinking about? Regrets, regrets and more regrets. What didn’t you dare to do? What opportunities did you pass up because of your fear? What life didn’t you live?
There’s good news here. You have a choice. You can choose to be the type of person you want to be. It’s that simple. I didn’t say easy – just simple. It will take work but think about the rewards. Choose to take that first step towards your dream. You’ll be amazed at how much easier it becomes – step by step by step by step. You’re creating a new habit that will replace the old habit of watching things happen from the sidelines. Before you know it you’re living your dream and working on the next one. Now doesn’t that sound like a happier way to live?! You are now the person you wanted to be.
