“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.”
Achieving a dream is a great feeling, looking back at all the hard work, dedication and persistence leave you feeling some kinda way. But after you’ve come down from the level of euphoria, you may feel a bit let down because then the question arises. You may say to yourself. “I’ve done the hard work. I’ve achieved my dream. Now what?” It’s like painting your house, you’ve decided on the colour, bought all your supplies, painted the house. Now you’re standing back and admiring all your hard labour. Then after a few days, that pride has worn off a bit.
All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.”
~Orison Swett Marden
Here’s the deal. Don’t stop! Don’t stop at one dream. Success should be a wave, with one crashing on your shore continuously. Take note that you have now grown to a point where you know what works, what doesn’t and what failure taste like so it’ll no longer sting your tongue if it strikes again because now you have your blueprint for success and would have built the self-confidence to pursue even higher aspiration.
Set a new goal today and dream of the possibilities…….
