I’m sure that over the years you have heard this phrase mentioned a few times “You snooze, you lose” but what actually happens when you fail to react and more importantly does a lack of urgency really cripple your desires and goals?
You may recall in my previous blog post that I finished talking about Napoleon Hills secret, the secret he mentioned all the way through the legendary book “Think and Grow Rich”but obviously never tells you what it is, you have to find the secret yourself.
You may also remember that for me the secret is DESIRE and as described by Jim Rohn“Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value” and I think this is very accurate, you see when you want something you have to act immediately, not because if you don’t it will fade away, but the desire is so strong that you simply can’t rest. You need to respond to your desires demands. Think back over your life, think about those things you really desired and how they magically appeared in your life, now think about what you were doing at that time and I guarantee that you had an urgency, an urgency to make progress and move towards bringing that desire into reality. I have often said that you benefit approximately 3 months later for the hard-work and efforts you apply today, so the wonderful things you have attracted into your life are nothing more magical than an urgency you applied several months ago and I can be certain that it was a burning desire that drove the urgency too.
The unfortunate thing is most of the time we never see things through, a great quote whom I am not certain who the citation should be credited goes “Be like a postage stamp. Stick to it until you get there” it’s the things we really desire that gives us that drive and sense of urgency to turn them into reality. You can have anything you want in life if you want it bad enough, YOU have had everything in life you really desired.
To finalise this blog I will finish by saying you just need to know what you want, and you can go out there and get it. To simplify this let me give some examples, you know that each day you have to go to work, go home,or travel to your office and you don’t think about how to do it, you just do it! Well achieving your dreams and desires are no different, you have to believe in them, develop a sense of urgency about achieving them and then stay committed to applying that sense of urgency until you get there.
I hear so many times people say that they’re unaware of how to get there, and my answer to that is, you don’t need to know. The likelihood is that if you do know then the goal isn’t set high enough.
If you have a goal to become financially free, a millionaire or live a better lifestyle you need to have a plan to be financially free, to be a millionaire or lead a better lifestyle. A quote I totally adore from Napoleon Hill Says –
If you’re one of those that believe that hard work and honesty, alone, will bring riches, perish the thought! It’s not true! Riches come, if they come at all, in response to DEFINITE DEMANDS, based upon the application of DEFINITE PRINCIPLES, and not by chance or luck.
So to just work hard with no clear focus will certainly not bring you the results you desire, however with a definite plan, a definite execution and an urgency to get to your goal, you can bring all the wonderful desires you wish in to your material world.
