I am so so so very tired of hearing “Don’t get too excited,” or “Don’t get your hopes up”…!!! Aren’t you?!
While the road to success in any endeavor is not always a straight or simple line to draw, its so important to allow yourself to really go after things you passionately want. Your brain actually has no concept of money- it only can conceive of emotions attached to what it can bring. Same with LOVE. And SUCCESS. All these “abstractions” mean nothing without really awesome emotion behind them. You gotta want it, and not abstractly…but with real purpose and a sense of the end product really driving you to reach each landmark.
While I definitively don’t advocate becoming a single-minded person that falls into imbalance, you gotta want things to get up and move toward making them happen.
You have to want things badly enough to think at a higher level, live on a more intuitive plane and leap over the obstacles in your way. When you let yourself “get excited” its a lot easier to risk.
This is nothing new that I am saying, its just a reminder for you & me! If you are afraid to want things too badly because you might not get them, well, its like driving a car on fumes. Add passion and you suddenly can access so much more energy, skill, intuition and even talent! The worst thing that will happen if you live with passion as you move toward your desires is that you will have to try again, and that is exciting because with each try you have a chance at success. And if you are even thinking if getting discouraged ask yourself if you’ve put in 10,000 hours yet. If not, keep going!
