Here’s what you need to know about success… you've gotta be RELENTLESS.
How to be Relentless When Chasing Your Dreams.
People who are successful at achieving their goals and dreams, spend their time and energy focusing on the various ways they can achieve their desired result. THAT is where their energy goes.
It does not go to thinking about all the ways they could fail. When thoughts of failure come up, they beat them back with more thoughts of DETERMINATION, they remind themselves what they want and why, and they keep trying no matter what. They don’t have backup plans. They put all their eggs in one basket and they (sometimes blindly), boldly, fight through the unknown. That is the only way you build relentless pursuit.
When I think of relentless pursuit, I think of a ballerina, I think of the endless and painful hours of consistent practice on bruised and battered feet. I think of YEARS of showing up and DOING THE THING, to get the result the ballerina desires. They come back after horrific days that feel like a failure, and they come back after the performance of a lifetime. They keep coming back to get closer to their goals, no matter what. That is relentlessness.
The only way you become relentless is by focusing on your dream outcome, taking daily action toward it, and NOT thinking about the worst-case scenario or your current reality.
When you think about your dreams, what thoughts do you foster? Do you allow space for doubt? Do you make room for indecision? Do you tell yourself, “If this doesn’t work, I could always try something else?”
Or are you ALLLLLL IN? People who go 200% in are the 1% successful. People who go half-in, get half-assed, unsatisfying results. Which one are you?
Don’t wait to feel this confident and this relentless BEFORE you start, remember the ONLY way to get to that point is to build it slowly through focus, vision, visualization, desire, and action. Put in the work and the relentlessness will build on its own.
And why do you need to be relentless? Because it will put you on near autopilot, and make you nearly bulletproof, against obstacles disappointment, and adversity, and wouldn’t want that added layer of support?
Get after it today!!!
The ballerina is in relentless pursuit of a dream moment like this, that will NEVER come if she stops showing up consistently to do the work in practice.
