You’ve got to go for your goals, be the best that you can be, live your

to live your life, pay your bills, look after your children and build
your relationships – is it any wonder that attempting to go for our goals
ends up low down on our list of “things to do”

Are we too busy staying alive to truly enjoy living?

When the decision is made to look into changing your old programming it
is not only making the transition from old to new that could stop you,
although this has the potential to be a major stumbling block. You are
also “battling” with running the parts of your daily life. The desire to
change and improve our life will be in competition with taking care of
the needs of you, your family, and your work.

Staying alive in order to pay the bills and take care of life eats up a
large portion of our time and energy without having to then focus on what
goals we want to achieve. When you have been working 12 hours, to
motivate yourself to build your network marketing business so that you
can eventually leave work and work from home can seem like a real effort.

We are so busy taking care of staying alive that sometimes there can be
little energy left to work on the one thing that could possibly make all
of the other things work better.

And that’s how it is for many of us who have made the decision to return
to learning, or who are working 2 jobs, raising a family or involved in
community activities. The busy-ness of life can easily provide us with
an opportunity to put our dreams on hold and to stop living.
Will your dreams be buried with you because you lost all hope of ever
achieving them when you became tied down with earning a living, taking on
a mortgage and working to pay the bills?

Ultimately I had to make a decision; I had to decide how much I really
wanted to run my own business, have my own dream home, and drive my own
great car. When I decided it was time to go for it I had to not only come
up with a strategy to keep me focused, but also to accept that every day
living had the potential to crush my dreams and leave me stuck in a life
I was unhappy with – but only because I had made the choice to make that
happen.

Instead I made a different choice. I made the choice to wake up 30
minutes before my children to write out my goals, I made the choice to
start small and build up to leaving employment so that I could work from
home. I made the choice to keep going when the network marketing
business I joined didn’t work out and to try something new. I made the
choice to switch off the television an hour early and spend the time
before going to bed reviewing my day, taking part in self-reflection and
listening to a motivational audio CD.

I made and continue to make those choices because there is a desire to
succeed that out weighs any feelings of inertia I may have. I was and
still am driven by a desire for my children to see the world and enjoy
the best that life offers.

In life there is “stuff” to do, no one is disputing that fact, but when
the “stuff” overtakes and becomes more urgent than our dreams and
aspirations then that is where finding your drive for something more
becomes the motivating force that compels you forward, one step and one
day at a time.

If right now you find yourself to busy staying alive to truly enjoy
living then stop and decide whether you are satisfied with that or you
want something different for yourself. Making that decision is the first
step.
