When we begin to really take good look at what we want, decisions must be made. It is at this pivotal point that there is no going back. But knowing what we want is only half of the entire picture. You see there is what we want and also WHAT we are willing to do to get it.

Many famous people who have had great success will tell you what they have done. Most people listen to these stories, shake their heads and say “Wow!! That’s quite a story.” After that they walk away with the story in their head and go on about their daily business. Then somewhere along the line they will think about the story they heard and think to themselves “If only that could be me.”

What most people do not take into account is that there can be a great deal of discomfort in achieving great things. There also might have to be a lot of balancing in the process of creating your dreams as well. For those who can envision success, they will seize any and all opportunities. Even if it means some will end up being a dead end.

One of the most prominent comedians of our time Steve Harvey, got started in the business by attending open mike nights every chance he got. He eventually got a break and was offered other opportunities, but he began just like everyone else. He was willing to do whatever it took to get people to listen to his stand up act. That perseverance has landed him with a television talk show, books, and movie roles. All of these things he himself would not have ever envisioned.

It is only to easy to get caught up in what other people are doing. Some people will try and take you off course with their negative thinking. Others will try to undermine what you are trying to achieve by pointing out all the pitfalls. Listening to these outside influences will leave you without ever taking a chance on an idea.

What are you willing to do to make yourself a success? Remember, for anything the mind can conceive it is entirely possible to achieve!
