‘Impossible’ is not a fact; it’s just an opinion. You can do anything you want as long as you put your mind to it and give it your all. This is not one of those lectures about getting on in life, doing something for yourself and all that. This is actually about a triumph I had in my life yesterday and just wanted to share the exhilaration of it.
I stopped making resolutions at every New Year’s because honestly speaking I hardly ever followed up on them right to the end. Halfway through I’d get disheartened and just give up and that was the end of that.
This year on my birthday I set a goal for myself that by the end of the year, 31st December 2012 to be precise, I will have achieved something without anyone’s help. Right now I can’t divulge what it is that I did but last night I suddenly realised I had surpassed my goal. I had set myself a time limit and I felt great that I had achieved what I wanted.
I realised it is all in focusing. Yes it’s easy to tell someone all about the ladder of success and having clear vision and what not but words from another’s success hardly seemed to make a difference to my life. I wanted my own success story and who better to sort that out other than myself?
I’m really happy with what I have achieved and I do hope that my efforts don’t go in vain and I continue in the same vein. I’ve never felt so proud of myself.
It’s a great feeling.
