When someone tells you that ‘you can do it’, we often react in one of two ways;
– we get a surge of motivation and courage and we nail it!
– or we listen to that little voice in our head saying ‘no you can’t’ … so we don’t.
Do you believe in yourself to do anything that you set your mind to?
Or do you always think about it, take a back seat and watch something else unfold?
I truly believe that if we want something, we will make it happen. It may not be delivered in the package that you expect it to be, but it will arrive in some form. So if you’re open to new opportunities, new beginnings and the thought that anything is possible, you will never second-guess yourself or listen to the voices in your head in the same way.
We have a responsibility to ourselves to be happy and live a fulfilled life. Isn’t that what we all want? I often tell my friends, family, clients and colleagues that we only get one shot at this life so you might as well make it a good one! Spend your days doing things that you love to do and stretch yourself to try new things. Take your future into your own hands and start working towards what it is you really want. Because one thing I know for sure is that no-one else is going to do it for you.
You can start making changes right now. You don’t need to wait for the approval of your friends … you don’t need to wait for the right man to come along … you don’t need to wait for anything! Just start because you CAN do it!
All you need is absolute unconditional belief in yourself to create whatever it is that you desire. And if you’re thinking that you have no idea how to do that … I totally understand! This is a process in itself and one that I can share with you another time, but I can tell you that when I started dreaming again and looking ahead to what I wanted my life to look like, that’s when things started to get exciting!
With anything new and different, you’re likely to hit a few speed bumps and quite possibly make a few mistakes along the way … that’s all part of the process. It’s OK to make mistakes (actually I would worry if you didn’t make at least a few) because that’s the best way to learn. You’ll know what to do differently next time and what works best for you. And always remember that learning takes time, so give yourself that time and don’t be in a hurry to get to the finish line.
Be accountable for your own growth but don’t be accountable to anyone but yourself. Be strong in the knowingness that you know exactly what you’re doing and exactly where you’re going. You’re the one driving the car on your road to success and happiness so don’t be a passenger. Trust your own judgement and be confident in the decisions that you make, and know that at the time you make a decision, it is the right choice for you. There’s no room for second-guessing yourself or doubting your abilities to do whatever it is you want to do.
You CAN do this.
You CAN invest in property and use it as a vehicle to financial independence.
