Recently, I have had to deal with some of life’s finer moments, if you know what I mean! I think through these moments we can teach ourselves some valuable lessons that can move us forward in a better direction. There are fine lines and nuances which can be applied to our betterment, and I want to share with you what I’ve learned.
1. Being Both a Dreamer & a Doer
Let’s talk about what it really takes to be a staunch doer. Again, the best breed of people are made up of individuals whom can flip the switch back and forth between being a dreamer and a doer. These people make up the champions of life. This individual dreams up a scenario, then goes right to the drawing board and DOES something about it!
2. Using Pain to Help You
This is the individual, when an opportunity presents itself, doesn’t let a beacon of light pass by. A winner of life does not let the burdens and the baggage of life’s dwellings take over their very existence! This winner uses pain to their own advantage. As Tony Robbins with amazing insight quoted; ” The purpose of pain is to move us into action; It is not to make us suffer.
3. Alpha vs. Beta/Cause Vs. Effect – Who Are You?
Life is hard enough when we live among so many people on this earth with so many perspectives and agendas. Why let these agendas hit us on the mouth and hurt us?!
Do not become an “effect” of what has happened, be a “cause.” Rise up above the situation and do something about it. The individuals that are the antithesis of being a doer, are the ones that succumb, crumble, and fold under the pressure!
These are the individuals that hide in the corner and “hope” life will become good again. When someone out there does or says something “negative” about you, these are the individuals that succumb under the pressure of negativity, find destructive ways to sabotage themselves and the very people around them. Yes, and one of the casualties include the people that care about this individual. At this point, what ever the situation was, it has already overwhelmed this individual in its entirety.
Who are you? Are you the Alpha individual who laughs at their critics and just produces results? On the contrary, you may be the Beta individual who drops their head and finds the nearest exit. For your own sake, I hope you are the Alpha!
4. The Truth – Everything is Up to You
You got to get out there and make it happen. You are the very key that starts the ignition and gets that vehicle rolling! It does not matter what situation or event is occurring in your life, you have got to stay on top. It is important to be the Alpha dreamer and the Alpha doer! I am not even going to talk about the opposite.
Are you going to get in the ring and fight? Perhaps you the one who gets knocked out in the very first round? Who are you? One of my all time favorite quotes by C.S. Lewis says what we are made of, “Hardships often prepare ordinary people, for an extraordinary destiny.”
I really believe we all have the capability to do something really amazing. We all have the capability to be the beacon of light others around the world can aspire and dream to be like!
Dream it up, then go out there and be extraordinary!
It’s time to become the best dreamers and doers on this planet!
I’ll leave you all with this amazing, inspiring video that I found that will get you ready to deal with any of life’s offerings!
I wish you all the very best.
