Life is about the person you become through your attempts at going for the things you want. Chances are, if your experiences are anything like mine, you will strike out many, many times and stumble, fall, and scrape your knees. The unseen gem here is the person you become each time you do these things. In the last 5 months on my own, I’ve stumbled a bit, realized some mistakes, and learned a lot about myself and the people I’ve met. What I’ve realized is that the biggest value to gain in life by trying and going for what you want is the person you become in the process of doing so.
I don’t have all the answers, that’s for sure. But I do have this answer and feel very strongly about it. And that is if you feel something strongly, you should go for it and not worry about whatever the consequences may be. I’ve learned to trust my gut and instincts. Sometimes that instinct tells me it’s time to go for it. Other times, it says to wait and see what happens. Either way, I listen to that inner instinct and I believe it is the universe communicating to me in some way I don’t comprehend and each time I listen, my life is presented with a new situation that further enhances who I am.
The person you become through your attempts is what life is about. For me, this is dating – and continuing to increase the quality of the women I date, my business ideas, striving to get in the best shape of my life, looking to advance my career, etc… For you, it’s whatever you feel inwardly that you need to do. And here’s a fact – you’re going to fail and screw things up while you go for what you want. I have. And I’m sure I’m not done doing that. But each time I fail – each time I make a mistake, I enhance myself with new strength and knowledge so that the next time is better.
You’ll become an attractive person by going for what you want over and over without giving up. I truly am loving the journey I am on – both the struggle and difficulty as well as the joy and happiness. Swing the bat and make the attempt each day. You only get one life – and you don’t know when your time is up.
