To live out our dreams and to truly live the life we were created to live, we must stay true to our Life Plan that includes all our life goals and dreams and we must have a motivating message to keep us focused. Life sometimes doesn't recognize that we have a plan and sometimes we veer off the intended course for one reason or another. The primary reason we see most people defer from their plan is due to a lack of self-discipline and commitment to their long-term dreams and goals.
A former NAVY SEALS Trainer was once asked in front of a large audience what it was that they did inside their SEALS training that prepared this group of special forces officers to endure such dire circumstances in battle without losing their focus on the job at hand and the trainer responded "We teach them to NEVER QUIT". The audience wouldn't accept his answer. "Come on you must train them using unique psychological techniques or have some special program to train them to endure such things as torture and other near death circumstances" and the NAVY SEALS trainer responded quite firmly "We train them to NEVER QUIT".
The reason why the NAVY SEALS are so highly regarded in their field is because they NEVER QUIT. They have an extremely high success rate of accomplishing goals because of this act of self-discipline. Now let me ask you a question.... What if you decided not to quit on your plans, dreams and goals? Where would you go in the world today? I imagine you'd go as far as you wanted to go.
What is the message that you repeat to yourself when you're tempted to veer off the course of personal success? Each of us needs a motivating message that brings back our focus and motivation to stay the course to help us achieve our goals and dreams. Let me share a few examples with you....
"My long term commitment is greater than my immediate desire!"
"I won't quit"
"I can do this"
"Failure is not an option"
"I was created for this moment...I will stay the course!"
By saying a statement like this when you're tempted to give up and/or veer off from your plan, you'll be energized and motivated to accomplish the things you've always dreamed about and you'll live the life you were created to live!
