PURSUE: What Stops You?
The 9th "P" focuses on taking the steps to PURSUE all that you have prepared and planned for. So many people get everything in order and for some reason do not PURSUE their dreams. For many it's because they don't have all the "Ps" in alignment, they fear failure; many even fear success, or they have been told they will never amount to anything so why pursue success.
The key to PURSUING is making the "decision" to PURSUE. That's it. If you have worked through all the P's noted in my posts and feel good about them all, then the only decision to make is to take the first step towards your dream. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't make it. Don't let distractions or time wasters keep you from achieving your dream...eliminate them, GO FOR YOUR DREAMS, and execute your life plan you have built!
Remember why people tell you can't achieve things...they don't believe in themselves or their dreams, so the way they make themselves feel good is to make everyone around them feel less worthy or incapable of achieving their dreams. This ensures that they aren't left behind by their friends who ARE chasing their dreams.
SHORT TERM ACTION STEP: Each Sunday afternoon, sit down and write down the steps you need to take in the next week to continue the PURSUIT towards your PURPOSE and dreams you have established for your life.
LONG TERM ACTION STEP: Open up your day-timer and write in the action steps that you know you need to take in 30 days, 90 days, and 6-months out to PURSUE your PURPOSE and achieve your dreams. By doing this, these are in your plan and can't get lost.
Remember, the difference between an average life and a great life, is simply the courage and willingness to PURSUE.
Seize the moment today! Get your "Ps" in alignment and make the decision to PURSUE your dreams. Don't let people, your past, or circumstances stand in your way. Make today, the start of the rest of your life!
