Go For Your Small WIN First 

By Ange Fonce

Most people fail at what they try... not because of any lack of skill... because they do not have the inner resources and "know how" to reach and acquire  their goals.

If you are like most people you live life circumstantially as if you are victim of conditions you perceive to be imposed on you... working a steady job... sacrificing and saving... hoping and praying that the economy will cooperate... fuel prices will drop... your portfolio will expand... you will get a big raise and that it will somehow all work out in the end.

By following the rules... you trust... against all the evidence to the contrary... that someday... you will have sacrificed sufficiently... put in enough time... or saved enough money to “do what you have really always wanted to do.”

And the reality is that you will get to the distant end of life and feel unaccomplished.. unfulfilled.... and spent by years of “meaningless” toil.

You started out knowing exactly what you wanted... as you grew older you may have begun to hear innocent or well meaning things like...

“You can’t always get what you want.”

“Money doesn’t grow on trees.”

“Success takes hard work and sacrifice.”

“Rich people are selfish and greedy.”

“Don’t set your sights too high... you don’t want to be disappointed.”

“You can’t make a living doing that”

Family... friends... and associates impart their “thinking” of what is best for you by either discouraging you from the passionate pursuit of what you love or perhaps encouraging you to defer the pursuit of it until you have made enough money.

For the most part unaware of the consequences... the educational system... employment market... and the news and information media are complicit in this subconscious programming... by characterizing what a successful life should look like they clearly establish the societal game rules to accomplishing it... you are constantly encouraged to “go for the degree... go for the money... go for the house... go for the car” first and come back to what you want most later.

After some number of years you begin to lose touch with your desires and instead begin to focus on doing what others want you to do... you learned how to act... what to do... and how to be to get approval... as a result you now not only do a lot of things you do not want to do... and you may not even recall what you truly wanted to begin with.

You go to college because that is what your parents told you it was necessary for success.

You go straight onto to University because the job market is too competitive and you need an advanced degree to get a good job

You graduate and get a “real” job with a “safe” company instead of pursuing what you want because it is more secure and you get good benefits.

You put your nose to the grind stone... work hard now... sacrifice and save as much as you can now and there will plenty of time to do what you want and enjoy in life later.

In the name of being sensible you become numb to your own desires... it is no wonder that when we ask a teenager what they want to do or be... they honestly answer... most of the time... 

‘I don’t know.’

There are too many layers of “should”... “you’d betters”.... and “ought-tos”...  piled on top of

what they really want... the reality is that this conventional wisdom... rarely leads to the creation of an abundant... fulfilling and successful life... not being clear about what you want is a sure fire way to keep you from ever having it.

The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this... decide what you want.

In order to experience your vocation or business with the satisfaction... accomplishment... and rewards of success... it must be in service of your purpose... what you are committed to accomplishing in life... your “mission”... and who you truly want to be.

In the long run... you are going to find that if you remain true to your life passions and are doing what you love... you will experience success in every dimension of your life.

You begin by creating a crystal clear detailed vision of the life you want to live... not the limited one you think you can live... not the one you are willing to settle for... the one you will truly and completely love living each and every day.

With a clear vision of the life you will love to live... you will be prepared to begin finding and creating the lifestyle... business... the career... the relationships  that will deliver that experience to you.

In the end... if done in authenticity and integrity... through the completion of this process you will be rewarded handsomely for being who you want to be and doing what you love to do.

So when you set yourself “goals”... go for the small one first and acquire it... get your first WIN!

Because once you acquire your first WIN... you know you can do it... then it is a matter of wash... rinse and repeat again... and WINNING becomes a habit and a natural way of your life.

The fact of the matter is... if you do not do it NOW... and acquire a WIN... no matter how good your intentions are... you will NEVER do it in the future. 

And what you are living today... will be what you are living for the rest of your life.

Thank you and may you enjoy a Prosperous and Dynamic day!

Yours Sincerely
