― Germany Kent

We only get one life while here on this earth, so why not make it count? Why not win? Why not build and work hard to create the life we want? We dream and hope that things will one day happen, but whats holding us back from really seeing those dreams accomplished.  Is it the responsibilities of today? Are we so focused on everything or everyone else that we don’t stop to think about the dreams that are sitting in our hearts dying to be fulfilled.

Our everyday experiences and stresses of today has gotten us so caught up, that we forget about the future and creating a better tomorrow. Sometimes it’s the things that we experienced in the past that still has us stuck in the past while life is continuing to pass us by. Why can’t we move forward? Why are we still allowing what we experienced yesterday to keep us from building a brighter future? Why don’t we seek the help and find the healing that we need to move forward?  As we discussed in last week’s blog “The moment we take responsibility for everything in our life is the moment we can change anything in our lives.” Part of taking responsibility is taking the necessary steps to help ourselves move forward. We will never have a perfect life but we can work to create a better life thats continually growing and getting better with each new day.

“Don’t become complacent because ‘things could be worse’ but rather get busy because ‘things could be better’.”
― Bobby Darnell

Imagine how different our lives would be if we would move forward from everything that has held us back? Imagine what dreams would be accomplished sooner than later. Think about the change this world and the people who are around you would experience because  you are fulfilling your dreams.

So, What do we need to do in order to create a winning personal life?

1.) Focus on getting better every day

Every day we have an opportunity to start fresh. We must focus our attention on becoming better than we were yesterday. Ask yourself “What can I do better today?” “What changes do I need to make?” If we focus on becoming the best version of ourselves we will be able to accomplish the dreams and goals we have set. When we make the decision to continually get better our lives become better.

2.) Don’t compare or compete

Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle or vice versa. When we compare or compete we limit our creative ability and make someone else’s measurement the standard for our lives. We hinder ourselves in truly becoming the best version of us if we are using someone else to measure us. What if instead of competing or comparing we focused all of our energy on getting better and mastering our skills and our craft? Imagine how less stressful our lives would be.

3.) A lesson learned is never a loss

No matter what happens in life, there is always a lesson to learn through what we experience. Although our experiences can be painful; they are valuable in helping us grow. When we make the decision to grow through every experience it keeps us hopeful about life which helps  us to maintain a winning attitude.

“I never lose. I either win or I learn.” -Nelson Mandela

We can create and build a life where we are winning and moving forward, while seeing all of our dreams and goals accomplished. All it takes is your determining in your heart that you refuse to stay where you are. I want to encourage you to move forward, you only get one life so make it count. Take steps to accomplish your dream. Lets win together.
