Waving From the Top or Dead on the Side? - Lesli Bitel Coaching

Waving From the Top or Dead on the Side?

The facts are in: successful people act and think differently than the other 98% of the population.

But just what is it that is so unusual about them? What exactly do they do that others don’t.

The answer is not that surprising, but it can be eye-opening.

They all have one thing in common. Every single one of them at some point made an “all or nothing” decision. The decided to live on purpose, achieve their goals, keep showing up and playing full out no matter what.

Some of them caught the passion early in life and went for it full force, never looking back.

Others found themselves backed into a corner and finally said, “That’s it! This will change come hell or high water!”

In each case, these people made a decision. And I don’t mean just any decision. I’m talking about a DECISION.

The all-or-nothing, passionate, take no prisoners type of resolve that comes from being so aligned with your purpose that you are willing to venture far outside of your comfort zone in order to make it come to pass.

The times in my life that things have moved quickly and powerfully are when I was crystal clear on my intentions and passionate in my commitment to making it happen.

It’s as if the Universe suddenly “greased the wheels” and everything took off like a cannon shot.

There comes a moment when you decide what you are going to do and that nothing is going to get in your way of creating the outcome you want.

If you’re not creating the kind of results you really want, there’s a good chance that you haven’t completely committed to what you’re doing. Vague notions get vague results.

Ask yourself, where am I holding back? And then ask, why am I resisting? Am I afraid of failing? Am I waiting for someone else to give me permission?

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn put it so beautifully:

“I will climb this mountain. They told me it is too high, too far, too steep, too rocky and too difficult. But it’s my mountain. I will climb it. You will soon see me waving from the top or dead on the side from trying!”

So, what’s your mountain? And when are you going to start climbing?
