SURPASS YOUR DREAMS
E-Weekly Action Tip Archive
MONDAY MORNING ACTION TIP #31
Do you have a career goal that has not come to fruition? Are you frustrated and confused because it is taking so long? Do you wonder when you will see the results of your hard work?
Maybe the problem is that you are attached to how it is supposed to turn out.
When you focus solely on the end result, you miss out on the opportunity to enjoy today. When you wait until one day in the future to be happy, you are unable to appreciate where you are now.
THE WEEKLY ACTION CHALLENGE
Your challenge this week is to let go of the outcome.
First, write down the outcome that you have been expecting; the outcome that has been frustrating for you. Read what you have written and realize that you have sacrificed a lot of personal freedom in pursuit of this outcome. Then, say goodbye to it. You may return to your outcome someday. But, for right now, tear that piece of paper in two and throw it away. Let go of how you think your career is supposed to turn out. Replace it with something that inspires you instead.
So, what do you say? You only have one life to live, so it might as well be a life you love!

"Thanks a lot for your weekly tips. I read them every Monday morning and begin each week with a very positive attitude. I have never been this upbeat about my career; not just career alone, but about life itself. Reading your tips have enabled me to start a small business and I am studying an Internet course and working towards starting an internet cafe."
Congratulations to you Thabang!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
