成功之路Pathway to Success
Life is not about just getting by. Life is about reaching ever higher, building one achievement on top of another, and creating real, meaningful value in each moment.
A common stone on the ground does a great job of just getting by. You, on the other hand, are destined1 for much more spectacular things. Yes, indeed, you will certainly meet a number of challenges when you make the effort to raise your world even a little bit higher. The good thing is, you are superbly equipped to thrive on those challenges.
If life seems unsuccessful, it’s not because of the challenges or limitations that stand in your way. It’s because you refuse to see the exceptional opportunities that those challenges represent.
This is your precious and unique life, and it is absolutely worth all the trouble and effort you must go through to make it great. Within you at this moment are beautiful dreams, and you can begin to live in the direction of those dreams whenever you choose.
Let go of the false security of just getting by, and get yourself into focus on a purpose that will bring your life gloriously to life. Your very own pathway to success is just one quick step away.
让梦想成真Make It Be
Don’t allow your troubles to get the best of you. Instead, allow those troubles to make the best of you.
Don’t tire yourself out fighting against the challenges. Instead, find new energy by embracing1 those challenges and working through them to create real value.
Always remind yourself that discour-agement is nothing more than a response you’ve chosen. When you find that you’ve chosen to let it be, you can just as surely choose to let it go.
Replace discouragement with determin-ation. It is your life’s energy, and you can point it in whatever direction you choose. Your most powerful response is not based only on what has already happened. Your most powerful response also takes into account what you wish to make happen next.
Look forward, and envision in great detail the future you desire. Then gather all your energy, and step forward to make it be.
你的起点Your Starting Point
You are where you are. Accept it and feel the power your acceptance gives you to move forward.
This moment is as it is. Accept its uniqueness and experience the freedom of not having to fight against it.
There are difficult challenges in your life. Accept them and feel the energy that will enable you to rise above them.
Accept that this is your starting point. Instead of placing judgements on it, see the real, positive value that’s already yours. You cannot change where your past priorities* and choices have brought you. Yet you can make use of the wisdom you’ve earned to create a future that fulfils your most treasured dreams.
Lovingly and gratefully accept who you’ve been, what you’ve done, what you have and where you are. For you can now transform it all into what you most wish to be.
