5 Ways To Get Exactly What You Want From Life
by Iris J. Chapman
Everyone wants to be happy. Everyone wants to look back on a long life and be able to honestly say, "I wouldn't do anything differently." The question is how do you get there from where you are now?
Hypothetically: Let's say that you got on a plane. When the captain came on the intercom he said, "Welcome to Fly Wrong Airlines. I am your captain. I have no clue where we are going today. But, if you'd fasten your seat belts, we'll take off shortly. I'll just fly around till we run out of gas and land there. Who knows where that'll be?"
Sounds funny right?
Know exactly what you want out of life.
1) Know exactly what you want out of life.
"The real purpose of our existence is not to make a living, but to make a life—a worthy, well rounded, useful life." Author Unknown
As illustrated by the airplane story you must know where you are going in order to not just end up anywhere. There may be detours you have to take or layovers but make it your business to continue on to your planned destination.
2) Plot a course of action.
"The difference between a prejudice and a conviction is that you can explain a conviction without getting mad." Author Unknown
Don't prejudge yourself. You never know what you can accomplish until you try and try again and try one more time and then try again after that. I think you get my meaning. Say, "I am convinced that if I put my mind to this task I can do it." And you will find that you can!
3) Get help when needed.
"At work, you think of the children you have left at home. At home, you think of the work you've left unfinished." Golda Meir
Read self-help books that will give you ideas on how to get things accomplished. Ask family and friends for help. Get an opinion from someone you admire on a problem that you have. Join a club or forum. The idea is to act today so that the problem you have may no longer exist tomorrow.
4) Implement Your Plans Immediately.
"His (Sir Isaac Newton's) peculiar gift was the power of holding continuously in his mind a purely mental problem until he had seen it through." John Maynard Keynes
Picture in your mind the perfect life for you. Hold it there and never let it go. Then put one foot in front of the other continuously. You will be able to figure out how to get around any obstacle that may come your way. That is what ingenuity is all about.
5) Never give up.
all the good you can
John Wesley, 1703-1791, English theologian, evangelist, and founder of Methodism
Remember the little train that could? If it had stopped on its way up the mountain gravity would have eventually pulled it back down to the bottom of the hill where it started its journey. If it continued up and over the top—gravity would have assisted it toward its destination at the bottom of the other side. You can't get around the fact that gravity is going to pull you one way or the other. It's the law of nature.
Which do you choose?
Do yourself and the world some good. Reach your destination!
