JUST ONE MORE STEP
Good day and I hope you are having a great day. There is a fine quality that distinguishes success from failure. It is very subtle. Dr. Robert Anthony stated "water is really, really hot at 211 degrees Fahrenheit, but it boils at 212 degrees and turns into steam. Steam, can power a locomotive. Just one degree is the difference". Napoleon Hill said "success is a trickster...it takes delight in tripping one, when one is just one step short of the goal".
How many times have you been so close to something and became overwhelmed by the enormity of the whole project only to laugh at it when it was done? I was told by a mentor of mine that 95% of the things we worry about will never materialize. Unfortunately sometimes many people just give up so close to the finish line. You have heard me say this many times and it is a core part of the using the Law of Attraction. It is very important that your "WHY" is strong enough to pull you through when things get tough. It easier to be persistent when you have a strong "why". What I hear most of the time is that "I am just doing this because I have to". There will be times when you are doing things for some ones else or as a part of your "job," or as part of something that has little importance personally. At times like that is important to remember as Jack Canfield says "how you do anything, is how you do everything". It is a difficult thing to develop into a habit, but you will really benefit from doing your best not for other people's approval but for the great feeling you get from the accomplishment. You can develop the habit of doing just what you need to get by, or doing the best you can. It will determine the degree of success that awaits you. Developing this habit will serve you well and will bring you success. Excellence is rewarded very quickly.
It may be a cliche but "good work is its own reward" has truth in it. From the stand point of The Law of Attraction, you can see this. When you are giving your best to any task you will attract opportunities to give your best. If you can enjoy even the mundane things and do it well, you will be presented with more opportunities to enjoy doing your best. Napoleon Hill stated that success will test you to see if you are ready. Law of Attraction puts it more gently. When you come into vibration with what you want it will materialize for you. Blame it on the same blessing that allows you to control your destiny; your thoughts are things. See, the fact that you have over 60,000 thoughts per day is the reason for the need to keep on going. When you start using visualization, it is rare that you know what you want right off the bat. You may think you do, but give it time. You will see a different color, model etc. and you will change your mind. The stepwise progress clarifies what you want in your mind so then you can manifest it exactly as you really want it in your reality. How cools is that? You don't have to take it back to the store for an exchange.
I hope by now you can see that giving up is really the worst thing you can do. Realize that things are unfolding exactly as they should, and you are getting closer and closer to what you want. Don't quit just before all your hard work pays off. You are almost there and when you get there a few more time you will start to believe and have confidence. You will get better at visualizing and fine tuning what you want quicker and you will start to manifest more quickly as well. It is a learned skill and you are well on your way to perfecting it.
