How Can I Get Something I Really Want
To get anything you have to DO something. If you are not getting something you want right now then you have to do something that you have never done before. Something that will cause what you want to come into your life. If you go on doing what you have always done you will continue to get what you have always got.
Sounds simple doesn’t it? Perhaps you may think it sounds simplistic?
But it is not. Creating anything requires action…
So, what is it that you really want? And, what action will get it for you?
To get anything requires that you develop necessary skills and that you practice the use of those skills until you become proficient. If you want to drive a car you have to learn to drive and then you have to drive a lot before you can pass the test to win a driving license. To cook a delicious meal you have to master the art of cooking and then cook a few meals until you become proficient in the kitchen. To win a marathon race you have to learn the techniques of long distance running and then you have to train your body to run 26 miles.
The great majority of people do not have the patience to develop the skills and they convince themselves that they do not have the time to practice. These same people will spend hundreds of hours watching TV, texting, Twittering and polishing their Facebook profiles. They simply do not want what they say they want with enough passion and belief to make a few small sacrifices which would create the time required to work on their dream.
And that it half the problem! They just dream of something changing, of the object of their desire falling into their lap. They do not commit themselves to making the changes that are required for their goal to be achieved.
The video attached to this blog post is about self-confidence. It took the author several years to master the art of conquering his nerves in order to be able to speak in public. But now he can present with some degree of fluency and without suffering too much nervousness. The transition was the result of much practice and learning to view performing in a different way. Now he allows himself to be himself on stage and the nervousness no longer bothers him.
Why did he bother to overcome the nervousness? Because he wants to build a profile that will enable him to help other people to find their element – to be able to express themselves by the way they work and live.
