Becoming Limitless

by Ssregina Regina (2019-04-10)

Successful people have a clearly Becoming Limitless Review defined purpose for their life. Sue Grafton's purpose is writing mystery stories that entertain large numbers of people. My purpose is helping others succeed. My friend's purpose was creating better surgical equipment. What is your purpose? It should be something you love. If you don't love it, you'll get burned out and see your work as a grind. If you love what you do, you see your work as a gift and something to which you look forward every day. As we approach the end of 2009, spend some time thinking about what you truly love doing. Then, and more important, think about how you can make doing what you love your life's work.On December 21 2009, the first day of Winter, Denver had 60 degree weather. That night the weather announcer on TV reminded us that we had snow on the last day of Summer.This got me thinking about the unpredictability of life. As I frequently say, as you go through life stuff will happen -- good stuff, bad stuff, happy stuff, sad stuff, encouraging stuff, frustrating stuff. However, it's not that stuff that happens that's important; it's how you react to it. You can control the people and events in your life. You can control how you react to the people and events in your life.I choose to react positively to the people and events in my life -- especially the bad stuff, sad stuff and frustrating stuff that happens to me. And I urge you to do the same if you want to create the successful life and career and that you want and deserve.I know this isn't always easy. In fact, it's seldom easy. But the harder you find it to react positively to negative people and events, the more important it is for you to do so. Don't blame people or circumstances when things go wrong. Instead, choose to learn the lesson behind every less than successful relationship or event.When you look for the lesson behind problems, setbacks and failures you are taking responsibility for your life and career. Find the lessons in the bad stuff that happens and then do something to put those lessons to work. As we begin 2010 commit to taking responsibility for yourself, your life and your career. Put yourself in the driver's seat. Don't let events and people stop you from achieving your goals. Be persistent.
