Be willing

What are you willing to create in your life? How are you willing to spend the precious resource of your time, and what are you willing to accomplish?

There are countless things that you are able to do. What matters is what you are willing to do.

Life is filled with things that you wish for, that you see yourself as needing, that you feel you must do, and that you think you can’t live without. The attainment and fulfillment of each of these things depends on whether you are willing or whether you are not.

You can make magnificent promises, you can make understandable excuses, you can set goals, and you can make impressive plans. Yet it all comes down to what you are willing to do, where you are willing to take yourself, and how you are willing to live.

Skills, training, resources, connections and experience are all very helpful. In the end, though, what will make it happen is your willingness.

What are you willing to do with the spectacular opportunity that is your life? Be willing, and it will surely happen.
