HOW TO BREAKTHROUGH TO A NEW LEVEL
(Especially When You Feel Things Are Just Staying The Same)
Are you too involved to know what you are capable of. Are you looking for a breakthrough ? Though you are too engrossed in the familiarity of disorder and let-downs in your life, that you don’t notice or you don’t boldly and confidently pursue and plan your success, your dreams ?
“Fear and worry are the thieves of abundant living”
Do you feel you are failing to see and experience a breakthrough because you feel mentally, spiritually and physically DEPLETED as you have taken too many hits, too many “losses”
” … the impulse to dream has been beaten out of me through the experience of life”
Reframe your current experience of Life
Reframe – to look at, present, or think of (beliefs, ideas, relationships, situations) in a new or different way
The Life experiences you relate to as hits (being hit and knocked down by life) are not hits, they are life lessons. Furthermore, the experiences you understand stand to be “losses” are not losses. They are invaluable insight of life experience and they may instead actually be your greatest asset and perhaps reveal themselves as such down the line.
Anything is possible if you apply yourself. “The battle is usually won by the brave, the vigilant and the active”
So many things can happen to you in life you forget your POWER and get distracted from who you truly are.
Understand and know when things go wrong or go down, don’t go with them. When things happen to you in life it’s not personal (don’t ask why me ? “just say try me” – Anon)
Things may happen around you and to you though the things that really matter happen inside you.
If and when things go wrong, don’t just go through it, GROW through it
Most people don’t put themselves in a position to be an overcomer, as they play things safe. In a sense the chloroform of happenstance slowly sets them into a mechanical, predictable, in-ideal, in-fulfilling cycle of what people can only identify as “things being the same.” As certain as the sun rising in the morning and as certain as the stock market fluctuating down and up. Everybody is unique, everybody is on a journey of self discovery and they have a purpose, a talent and an audience waiting for them to take things to a new level and commit to a higher quality and confidently show up (Because when we “…raise the quality and the standard automatically gets raised too.” – A Robbins)
The Breakthrough you desire is on the other side of your challenges
“How can you be a conqueror, how can you breakthrough to a new level and be an overcomer if you don’t have anything to overcome.”
When fear of failure surpasses your desire to succeed, people warehouse themselves, they park themselves. immobilized with the fear of failure they decide it is better to do nothing. Or that it is better to wait for a sure-fire opportunity. The truth of the matter is that there are very few sure-fire opportunities. If you are fortunate enough to come across one, the chances are it will not grow you. It will not challenge you and forge you into the true leader, the true visionary, the true entrepreneur, the true genius that is uniquely YOU. How can you be a conqueror, how can you breakthrough to a new level and be an overcomer if you don’t have anything to overcome.
If Oprah didn’t get fired from an anchor job she had earlier on in her career she probably wouldn’t have become the visionary, the television success, the billionaire she is today.
If Michael Jordan didn’t get cut from the basket ball team when he was in ninth grade, he probably wouldn’t have become the living basket ball legend, the billionaire he is today.
Looking at those two examples and also being aware and mindful that there are of course other people who are trying things and not succeeding. As well as there are others trying things and succeeding. The point here is to take your challenges, previous experiences/ letdowns/ set back and use them to make you hungrier. Use them as a strong platform to breakthrough as there are no failures only lessons. So learn and advance, learn and advance, learn and move on. In addition, find a role model. Someone whose example you can look to. Knowing that simply by trying to emulate them you, would be automatically playing in an advanced and higher league.
Confidently move forward from an undesired experience. Knowing it does not define you and that you can choose. You get to choose how you respond. You get to choose how you interpret events as they happen. Being your own person, you get to choose your attitude. In allowing yourself to be more you get to choose if they are setbacks OR set ups prompting you plan better, train harder, think bigger and unleash otherwise unexpressed sides of yourself.
Move from event to event (be it failure or success) with at least the same drive. With enthusiasm and passion to execute your plans yours dreams as though you have never lost, never had a set back and this sets you up to BREAKTHROUGH to a new level.
You have greatness inside of you. You need to feed the leader, the genius, the visionary, the unique you. In doing this, you can be all that you can be and utilise the vast potential that lies dominant inside you.
….One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle is between two “wolves” inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, creativity, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
In order to feed the genius within you… read. Keep abreast through reading positive, inspirational and empowering books. As you gain insight and gain a facility to influence your life and the lives of others through various knowledge and perspectives.
LISTEN TO SOMEBODY ELSE
On a final note, as we set out to achieve what we want. We must be conscious that we don’t and won’t get there on your own. Sometimes we don’t go where we can go or achieve our success simply because we let our egos drive us. We don’t listen to anybody else but ourselves. We’ve got to be open to other voices/ other ideas/ opinions that can give us a different perspective. Furthermore, sometimes we get stuck and we need some new ideas, perspectives to help get perspective and lead us to our breakthrough, our promised land, our dreams !
