Take it easy! How many times have we convinced ourselves that we are either working too hard or just doing too much. This may be a statement that is frequently played in our minds. But ask yourself, who works harder than Mrs. O? (Not Mrs. Sharon Osbourne), but mogul Mrs. Oprah Winfrey.
From having a daily talk show to earning her own network OWN, this certainly would not have been easy. Is it that her road was paved from the beginning? Was it destiny?, or did she make it happen? Many would say it was destiny but was it really so. What is destiny? It is said to be events that will happen to a particular person in the future, or the hidden power believed to control what will happen in the future. Said in one word, FATE.
Let’s take a closer look at the road Mrs. O had to travel, and her accomplishments today. Maybe this can motivate us or even encourage us to dream big.
Even the great Mrs. Oprah Winfrey will attest to not having a road paved with gold. She, just like most of us had to fight most of the way to accomplish and achieve what she has today. She dreamed big, believed in that dream and worked towards it. Rest assured it was not always easy, but she never allowed the negatives to get the better of her. In fact, she replaced the negative whether people or otherwise with the positive, and never allowed others to kill her dream of becoming a better person and helping others.
Would you still say this was destiny. Should our lives be destined, then we can all logically assume that we should not work hard towards anything as wherever we are meant to be at any given time will happen. Some may even reason that our destinies need a little push, thus the reason why we need to work towards it. Many suffer despite how hard they may work, does that mean “the higher being” that controls their future wanted it that way? That would not be a fair statement.
So what does that mean for us? It plainly means we cannot just let things be. We need to take action now and work to get the end results we want.
Work towards it
And never give it
So whether our goal is to implement better health options or simply to accomplish more in our lives, those three goals can work. So let’s look at one dream about our health that we can all have. Lets go really BIG. “To live longer”. So what’s preventing us from living our lives to the fullest “healthwise”?
First and foremost let’s look at how we sleep and what we take in. Sleep rejuvenates our brain cells and helps us to work and think more efficiently. As we get older, lack of sleep may contribute significantly to memory loss. Thus, should you be someone who loves alcohol, try not to have a couple right before bed. It may put us off to sleep faster, but it will eventually upset your normal sleep cycle. Some of us love to drink coffee to help stay awake, but it’s wise sometimes to just give in and take a nap. We need to think clearly if we want the correct thought and thinking patterns to work towards our dream.
Eat healthy. Healthy bodies contribute to healthy minds. Use smart utensils that will help you to cook healthy. The road to achieving great things is not paved, but smile in the face of challenges. Chew some gum, get those pearly whites and smile. Laugh in the face of challenges, get rid of negative influences, and keep going. Use the great Mrs. O life as an example.
We can achieve anything, once we put our mind to it.
Dream big, work towards it and never give up.
