WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN?
You will come across people who are highly educated and knowledgeable, skilled, passionate, energetic and hardworking, yet they may fail to make things happen. I have seen such people, Have you?
IF YES, DID YOU EVER THINK-WHY?
My friends-it is not so much about education, knowledge, talent or skill that matters. Ultimately, it is all about you and your dreams that makes things happen. Based on my own experience, i would like to tell you THREE very important elements that is required to make things happen in your life.
3-Sense of urgency(Do it now Attitude)
A compelling reason is your own personal reason-why you want to achieve something.
It could be your Dream to have a better life style, big bungalow, dream luxury cars like Lamborghini, Porsche, Audi and Bentley etc, big bank balance etc etc. It could be to go out there and change many lives. It could also be to achieve a very ambitious target in your corporate job.
But trust me, nothing will move or happen, unless you have compelling reasons, which push you forward and compel you to do it. It keeps you going and drive you out there every day. Compelling Reasons define logic. Your compelling reason could be retaining your corporate job.
So, please identify your compelling reason. Find out what is driving you every day – That is your compelling reason.
Power of compelling reason will take you to next step. Your compelling reason lights a fire in your heart, which create something, known as burning desire or passion. It is a fire within you which is contagious.
Burning desire can be about anything, which comes out of you in a natural way. You behave in a ‘DO OR DIE’ manner. Others should sense your passion and seriousness. You cannot inspire or motivate others,unless you have burning desire. You can keep your leadership going only if you are switched on. Ask others, do they see burning desire in you for what you are doing or what you want to achieve. Burning desire keeps you going in life without getting tired. Your compelling reason is your key to open the door which unleashes your burning desire.
But, let me tell you, compelling reason and burning desire is not ENOUGH. You may still fail to make things happen without magic of a third element which is known as ‘Sense of Urgency’ and it means to have a ‘Do it now attitude’.
People have the tendency to postpone everything. They will be seen taking new year resolution to give up smoking. They will decide on 1st jan 2017 to give up habit of smoking on 1st jan 2018. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DATE WHICH NEVER COMES IN THEIR LIFE.
We tend to take life for granted as if we are going to live up to age of 85. BUT BE HONEST AND ASK YOURSELF CAN WE GUARANTEE A AGE OF 85 YEARS FOR US-OBVIOUSLY NO!! THERE IS NO GUARANTEE IN LIFE FOR ANYTHING.
I will tell you a story to instill sense of urgency. Medical check-ups are mandatory in various Professions. People normally go for basic medical check-up. But there was a person who had to go for an advance medical check-up. His doctor calls this person at 11 pm and asks him to meet him at his clinic tomorrow at 8 am, as he needs to discuss some very important and urgent things about his medical test report.
Imagine the condition of that person. WILL HE BE ABLE TO SLEEP THAT NIGHT? NO!! He will be at doctor’s clinic one hour before his appointment time. Doctor tells that person that he has got brain tumor, which cannot be operated at this stage. He also tells him that he has only 6 months to live. What do you think that person will do after this? Obviously, he will take a second or may be a third medical opinion. But all doctors say-he has only 6 months to live.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Will that person be living the same life that he had been living last 6 months?No, definitely not!! He will now be living with a sense of urgency to complete many unfinished tasks in next 6 months to secure LIFE OF HIS FAMILY. He would no longer postpone anything and will be forced to move ahead with a ‘do it now attitude’- because it is now a question of ‘DO or DIE’ for him.
So, please wake up and smell the coffee. Do it now. No postponement. Your decision NOW becomes very personal that i will PUSH myself TODAY, NOT TOMORROW.
YOU HAVE NO OPTION BUT TO DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW!!
“Destiny, only takes you so far. Once you are there its up to you to make things happen through these three elements.”
DO I NEED TO WRITE IT DOWN?
ANYWAY, I WILL DO IT FOR BETTER CLARITY.
IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND AND ABSORB THESE THREE ELEMENTS:
1 COMPELLING REASONS
2 BURNING DESIRE
3 SENSE OF URGENCY
YOU CAN MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. NO ONE CAN STOP YOU.
BEST OF LUCK!
