This morning I drew this card when I was doing my morning angel card reading.
Yesterday I read the story Michael Phelps driven by desire to prove doubters wrong. The story started with these words : IT is strange, the moments that change history. The words that drove Michael Phelps to desire were ones that were told to him back 1n1997 by his then schoolteacher that he would :“never achieve anything in life”. From that day to this, Phelps’ life has been one long sacrifice in pursuit of the impossible.
When he was asked by the journalist whether he ever doubts his own ability to achieve his exacting goals; that he might fail to prove his detractors wrong, Michael said”
“If you are passionate about something, you are going to get there come what may,” he says.
“People say that I have great talent, but in my opinion excellence has nothing to do with talent. It is about what you choose to believe and how determined you are to get there. The mind is more powerful than anything.”
With 2009 drawing to a close and if you are like me you are setting you desires/intentions for 2010. knowing what you really really desire gives both clarity and focus.
Are you really really clear about your desire for 2010?

It’s important to be clear about what
we want and where we want to go. We
give birth to desire, just by living… but
most people are unconscious of this.
Thank you for sharing:)

wishing you all your desires for 2010
Great post, Suzie. Michael is absolutely right – success begins in the mind. Change a thought, change an action, change your destiny.
I am chrystal clear on my goals for 2010. I used to struggle with motivation. But I found that when I set a compelling vision for the future that is very meaningful to me, the gap between that vision and my current reality creates all the motivation that I need.
Best to you in 2010,

Love your response Scott, looking forward to hearing how that gap narrows
Thanks for this reminder Suzie, in the past I have not always gotten totally clear about what I wanted and therefore achieved only minor results. So this great to hear as we go into 2010 because what we intend today will be our reality tomorrow.

yes Carol I relate to that and it has happenned for me this year that until I was really clear I wasn’t taking the action that would propel me forward
You are so right about being clear on what you desire. How do you know if what you are doing is leading you toward your goals if you are not clear about what they are.
So true Sheila, if you are not clear, the path very windy with lots of unnecessary side paths
If you are not clear on what you desire, you usually end up quitting in a few months. Just look at all the people who go to the gym after New Years. They quit after a week or two. Most break resolutions.
