Dear friend, to achieve what you want to achieve in life, to be the best you want to be in life, to get to the top of your game, you must do what you gotta do, you must roll up your sleeves and get to work, you must be willing and ready to go all out, to go all in, to not stop until you achieve your aim.
In my years on planet earth, in my interactions with people, I have found out that some people hope to achieve things the easy way; they expect that the chips will fall for them, they expect good things to drop on their laps like apples or like oranges, but I’m sorry to say this; most times, it does not happen that way, you have to set things in motion to achieve an end result, you must plant seeds before you expect an harvest.
Some people are just there, and they allow life to happen to them, I have heard people say stuff like; what will be will be, que sera sera, I can’t stress myself, I can’t kill myself, I can’t do more than what I am doing, if it’s meant to happen then it will happen. But if you are one of the folks who have such mindset and mentality, I am here to correct that today; you should not just fold your hands, cross your legs, and have expectations that good things will head your way, hear me please; you need to roll up your sleeves and get to work, you need to give it what it takes, you need to make a move, you need to send a text message, you need to put forward that proposal, you need to make that call, you need to do what you gotta do.
Now there are instances in life that you have done what should be done, you have done all you could, but it’s still not happening for you, then you can wait and expect the best, at least you have given your all, you have done your bit, your part, your best. You can then have expectations that the chips will fall for you; you have sowed your seeds, you have watered, so you have every right to expect a harvest. But there are some other folks who have not done anything; they have not planted any seed, so I’m surprised when they say they have expectations. Dear friend you must do what you gotta do.
I have heard some folks say efforts does count, whatever is meant to be will be, it’s not of him that wills nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy, but the response I always give to such people is that; well you may be right; it’s not of him that wills, but he is still willing, he is still making moves to push his life forward and get better, it’s not of him that runs too, but he is still running, before God shows mercy, but you don’t want to will, you don’t want to run, and you expect things to happen for you, you expect the chips to drop for you.
If you submit that proposal, it’s a 50 – 50 chance that it will sail through, and you might be invited to make a presentation, and you might get the deal. But if you don’t bother to submit, then it’s a zero chance you have of being invited to make a presentation, or get the deal. Someone said it best in the quote; “you miss 100% chance of the shots you don’t take”, it’s a basketball game you throw your shot, it’s either it goes in or it goes out, but if you decide to hold on to the ball, and not throw the shot, then it’s a zero chance you have, you miss the 100% chance.
So as regards your dreams, as regards your hopes and aspiration, as regards your plans for the immediate future, please do something about it, do what you gotta do and don’t leave it to chance. You want to write your book and publish it, do what you gotta do, you want to begin your catering business, then do what you gotta do, you have been wishing and planning of starting your own school, do what you gotta do, you want to take life head on and step into your dreams, do what you gotta do. So far you have thought it out, you have done your home work properly, then it’s time to take action, reach out and touch it!
To get results in life, to achieve your dreams and fulfill your destiny, make efforts, get busy with your life, do something, make the right move, and you’ll be amazed at the possibilities that will take place in your life. You’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do!
