YOU have a big goal, and the challenge will be more difficult than you expect. But this is good news if you escalate your expectation beforehand. What I mean is, if you anticipate this goal before you will be the hardest thing you’ll ever do, then you will face it with the force required to overcome it.
If, whatever it is, is the most important thing you’ve ever done, then you will succeed. You will succeed because it has your fullest attention and God blesses everything we give our all to.
There are two vitalising components to this fullest sense of attention required: depth and length. Depth, because you cannot afford to let your attention waver. Length, because unless you sustain the depth of attention required long enough to endure, you will be returned to the start, and that fact alone is the maddest frustration.
Raise the bar of your focus and keep it raised, and then you will succeed.
Falter upon your focus and you will fail. Even as you read these words aloud in your mind, steel yourself; you will succeed if this thing is important enough to you.
If it proves that this goal is only partly necessary, and you really don’t need me to tell you, because you know through experience already, you will fail. Are you ready and willing to fail? No, of course not. But you are able to fail, and the knowledge you have of that ability you have, alone, should spur you.
So raise the bar! Higher, then it needs to be, for then it will be as high as it needs to be. Then you will succeed.
