How many times will you sabotage your own progress because of fear, doubt, procrastination, laziness and everything else in between? The hour has come for you to stop with every excuse as to why you are unable to achieve your dreams.
Let’s take a moment to examine a comprehensive landscape of the word ready:
To be fully organized and prepared
In a suitable state for an activity, action or situation
Available for service or progress
Willing to do something
Equipped for what is about to occur
In order to posture yourself for advancement and accomplishment it will require an acutely focused frame of mind for what is on the horizon. This is commonly referred to as vision.
Are you able to see beyond your current situation into a future blossoming with bourgeoning possibilities?
If you have been feeling frazzled, frustrated and flustered over thoughts of stagnancy and sheer complacency now is your moment to shake the dust of mediocrity dwelling in the corners of your mind.
When you make a decision to divorce the darkness of defeat you are in prime position to seize the sunshine of success! Anyone can talk readiness but it takes daily discipline to be and stay ready for unseen opportunities that await your emergence.
As you adjust your internal compass, take a few minutes to evaluate to see if you are as prepared as you think you are ready to play a bigger game on a higher plane. Here are five questions to consider:
Am I organized and prepared for my next big move? Can you clearly perceive the direction in which you are heading? At the beginning of transition we must first go through a gathering phase where we lay out the puzzle pieces for strategic placement. This is when you are writing out specific plans and developing detailed ideas. Who do you aspire to partner with on this venture? What does your visual imagery look like? Who will design your marketing materials? What is the concise message you desire to convey? To whom will you be directly speaking to?
Is my thought process in a suitable state for next level living? If you are battling strong emotions pertaining to self-doubt it will be quite difficult to operate at an accelerated pace and ascend to higher dimensions. Pursuing your passion and purpose is no simple feat it will challenge every fiber of your being and require nothing less than blood, sweat and tears. No room for fear!
Am I available to contribute time, energy and resources to a cause bigger than myself? I recently read a profound quote by Tony Gaskins that stated, “The doors will be open to those who are bold enough to ask!” Opportunities often elude us because we appear unavailable in our dispositions, slothfulness and lack of pursuit.
Am I willing to work hard with or without reward? At the budding of a dream you may have to invest countless hours and lose precious sleep before ever experiencing monetary payoffs. That is why it’s vital that you seek after that which brings you the greatest fulfillment within. This will be the fuel necessary to keep your fire blazing during seasons of mental fatigue and weariness.
Am I equipped for what is about to occur? If you are a singer you should have at least several songs that you are primed to sing on the spot with or without a music band and background singers. Are you a speaker? If a company was to inquire about hiring you, do you have a speaker’s reel, one-sheet or a signature message available to submit?
Always consider, in the words of Jim Rohn, Business Philosopher, “When you change, everything changes.” Anything we attain in life is a sheer reflection of the action steps we put in motion. How will you strategically implement your innovative ideas today?
