Whenever I sit down to write and I can’t think of anything, I always start with a question; is it possible? For example, is it possible that yesterday’s blog is the worst waste of words on a computer screen ever? That remains to be seen.
Is it possible? If we are to believe our parents, anything is possible. I firmly believe this to be true. If you had asked my mother when I was a child whether her son would grow up to own and run a cleaning service, she would have laughed first, but then said, “Anything’s possible”. And here I am. Granted, it’s taken me decades to achieve, but the possibility was always there and it has become reality.
I believe that anything you want to do, want to be, want to happen in life is truly possible. Given that, what are you willing to do to get whatever it is that you want? If you have a passion, a burning desire, an all-encompassing need for something, I truly believe that it is possible to have that, but you have to be willing to do whatever it takes to get it.
If I want a peanut butter sandwich, I have to get off my lazy butt and make it. Is it possible to have a peanut butter sandwich? Absolutely! But, what am I willing to do to make that happen? If I say, “I want to own the biggest residential cleaning service in Minnesota”, I have to be willing to do the work to accomplish that. I have to be driven to work 24/7, harder, better than anyone else in the business to make that happen. Without that commitment, then nothing is possible.
Each of us has, within us, the strength and skills to make whatever we want out of our lives, if we’re willing to do the work it takes to get there. What do you want out of life? What are you waiting for?
To answer the initial question I asked about yesterday’s blog being the worst ever written, I would have to say, I doubt it. Not because I am that arrogant, but because I am still writing and anything is possible.
