Satisfaction and fulfillment

It’s powerful when you know precisely where you intend to go. But it’s not enough.

No matter how strong your desire is, desire alone will not achieve what you wish to achieve. That’s your job, and your great opportunity.

You must cross the distance between where you are and where you want to be. You must take action, with focus, with discipline, commitment and persistence.

You’re perfectly capable of doing all that. So go ahead, engage that capability, make the effort, reach the goal.

Yes, it will be difficult, challenging, uncomfortable, inconvenient. That’s what makes it worth doing, what gives it value.

Feel your desire to achieve, to go from where you are now to where you want to be. Then find great satisfaction and fulfillment in doing the work, in covering the ground to make it happen.
