… What you didn’t prioritised to be achieved cannot be achieved.
Each year starts with the first date and soon, the days rolled into weeks and the weeks into months.
As the days in January rolls into weeks, it’s soon April, then September and December comes to signal the end of another year. In conducting a self-assessment, we try and track our progress and we reflect to consider what actions were taken and we sometimes are at a loss and wonder what went wrong.
What were we supposed to do that we didn’t do; which actions were supposed to have been taken that was not taken, and what part of the aspirations and desires of the year was not accomplished that should have been accomplished.
THE FACT of it is that what we achieve is an indication of what we made a priority. What we didn’t achieved, was not well pursued to be achieved!
So we could be limited due to some really good reasons and we could give ourselves reasons to justify our inability, but excuses robs us of the benefit and joy of success. According to an anonymous quote:“Success occurs when your dreams get bigger than your excuses.”
Achieving our dreams is embedded on the priority we attach to it. Stephen R. Covey said, “Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.”
Whatever is important would be a priority, and though there may be no time, it becomes a priority because it is important.
So what are those things that should be achieved? You decide if it’s IMPORTANT.
You may refuse it;
Give an excuse for it;
Blame somebody for it;
Blame something for it.
You may say it’s your lack of skills;
Lack of information;
Lack of encouragement;
A financial challenge;
A health challenge;
An economic challenge;
A social challenge;
An environmental challenge;
A family challenge;
Or an educational challenge, ETC.
…. Whatever you like, call it.
THE FACT REMAINS THE FACT; your life is a reflection of your priority. What you didn’t achieve was not well prioritised to be achieved.
So WAKE UP and take the needed action to make your dreams and aspirations a reality.
Think about it!
AIM. REVIEW. REFOCUS. PUSH IN. PRESS IN. REACH OUT. STEP OUT. LEAP. TAKE THE RISK. WRITE IT. PUBLISH IT. PRIORITISE IT. ACHIEVE IT.
Whatever you desire to achieve is your own drive. Make it a priority to achieve it.
Whatever you need, GO GET IT.
… Just thoughts from my heart.
