If you have made a decision to achieve a certain thing, something more is required to be successful* in your chosen endeavour.
The Universe requires, no, demands something more.
What does it demand?
I don’t know what it demands from you. In fact, I constantly wonder what it demands from me!
The point is that achieving your goal, be it a successful business, to get that job you desire, to save enough money to take your parents on that foreign holiday they never had, to set up a community home for the homeless in your town, or whatever; something more is usually required.
What are examples of this ‘something more‘?
When you feel like giving up, something more is keeping going despite the thoughts inside of ‘why am I bothering?’
When you are scratching your head for answers, something more is searching for inspiration, asking the Universe for an intuitive thought, that light bulb moment.
Something more can simply be a decision. not just any old decision but the momentous decision that says:
“I’m never going to turn back from this course of action, I will do this!”
To reach a destination you have to put one foot in front of the other. To walk 1,000 miles, you have to do something more than walk 999 miles.
If you are an ambitious* person, the Universe demands exceptional things (something more) from you.
But, it doesn’t demand things from you that you cannot do (or imagine).
It is only our minds that place limitations on what we are capable of. Even if you know that you are being tricked by your mind into thinking you cannot do something, you still struggle to ignore the trickery!
Sometimes we just need to have faith that our minds and bodies can achieve what we want to achieve. There are things we can do to make these things happen of course but that’s not what this post is about. You could do worse than reading the book “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill for answers.
So something more could be:
- Go that extra mile
- Think bigger
- Keep on keeping on
- Don’t give up on your dream
- Seek inspiration
- Let your mind (train your mind to) be creative
- Trust your mind and the Universe to present solutions
* By successful or ambitious, I do not mean in a competitive money grabbing way. I mean it in a human creative way. See the post on Creative Capitalism for more information
