Paint Your Picture

Hello everyone, and thanks for giving this a look. So far, we have learned from a pretzel, and have hopefully been doing some thinking about what our why is. If not, it’s fine because it is never too late to start.

This article today highly relates to me and if I am allowed to guess here and there, I would think it relates to plenty of other people also….

We all have these big goals and dreams in mind, but when we are asked how we are going to get there, we have no true, clear-cut, down to the bone plan.  We simply have a big empty canvas with no paint to work with.

So whats one way we can maybe come up with a plan to achieve such large goals?

We take it back to the basics. Back to the baby steps. Something so simple that we make seem so hard.  Begin to make small, daily goals for yourself.

Guess what happens next?

We begin to accomplish these goals, rewarding ourselves along the way, but in the mean time, we are slowly working our way to our ultimate goal, whatever it may be! Slowly but surely we begin to move towards our definitive goal.  Our eyes become wider, we get excited about life, and our whole attitude on life changes when we begin to accomplish things.

Yes, the process will be slow at times, and you may feel like pressing the brakes and giving up, but just keep in mind that you are indeed progressing.

Slow progress is better than no progress! 

I recently watched a video titled “Will Smith shares his secrets to success,” which I highly recommend anyone to watch.

At one point in the video, Will Smith touches on a time in his life when he was 12 years old, and his brother was 9. His dad tore down a brick wall in front of his business, and told Will and his brother to rebuild it, a task they believed to be impossible. Well, a year and a half later, Will and his brother finished the wall. Upon completion of the wall, his father told young Will and his brother, “Now don’t you ever tell me there is something that you can’t do.” In the next part of the video, Will Smith speaks of building a wall. He says,

“You don’t try to build a wall. You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that has ever been built!”

He goes on to say,

“You don’t start there. You say, I’m going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid. And you do that every single day, and soon you have a wall.”

A perfect example of how slow, focused effort pays off. If each day we concentrate on placing the brick in our hands as perfectly as we can, then we will be taking positive steps towards experiencing the type of joy and happiness that we all wish to find.

So if you feel you have a big dream but do not know how to get there, just start small and stay positive. You must believe and have faith that you can do it, because you can. We all can, and we all deserve to. It is up to you!

No matter where you are at in your day right now, take time to set just one goal for yourself and work towards accomplishing it.

Paint your picture by realizing where you would like to go. Once this is acquired, the next step is to concentrate on each stroke of the brush in which you make. Slowly, but surely, with each concentrated stroke, your picture will begin to take shape, and you will see a significant difference in your day.

Thanks for reading, and have a great day.

Think Positive. Live Positive.
