Living a great life can sometimes seem like a constant fight. No matter what issues you’re facing, there’s an underlying truth that applies to all of us: we have to learn how to fight wholeheartedly for what we want. Yes, wholeheartedly. Things will not just happen on their own.
You need a plan, determination, and to be willing to put in the work. Maybe you are fighting with waking up on time, spending quality time with family, what to do with your business or finances, or maybe ways to better your health. Whatever the case may be, there is hope. How do I know? Because, you will never fight for something you don’t truly care about. If you want it bad enough, you will fight wholeheartedly for it.
The fact that you are wrestling around with it and fighting for good change in your life says that you want to become better in your needed area of change. Striving to become better is the best start that you could have to change. It means you are ready to start fighting with heart – with all of your heart.
Here are ways you can be better prepared to fight with heart for what you want right now:
- be yourself
- find common ground with others
- gather everyone together
- give hugs instead of handshakes
- keep eye contact
- ask better questions
- become better at remembering names
- be a giver of small gifts
- find ways to compliment others
Often, people will wait and take life as it comes to them. But, if you already know what you want from life, there is no point in standing around and waiting for it to come to you. Make a plan for action and go do something amazing. Focus on your one top goal, then write that one thing down and take a look at your goal every single day. Once you complete that goal, then write down your next biggest goal and only focus on it. Continue this process one goal at a time and fight for it until it is done.
Before you know it, you will have every goal completed. Doing this will increase your focus and keep you fighting wholeheartedly forward. Remember, it is not about the time you have, it is about the focus and determination in your heart to fight for what you want, on a daily basis, that will help you live a life with purpose.
