Release the Unimportant to Achieve Your Dreams – Daily Quote


It’s easy to view successful people, entrepreneurs, star athletes, and envy their fame and fortune. They live a dream life, the existence we want for ourselves and our families. We wonder what makes them special and why our desires have not materialized. We don’t consider their path to greatness. Their road may have required sacrifices, no parties, missed movies, waking early, strict diets, and forsaking staying out late. They have spent hours, days, weeks, and years relentlessly pursuing their vision. 

To advance toward our goals, we must make difficult decisions. Focusing on a single target means letting something else go.  In a world where they coach us to “never give up,” we can find ourselves forced into a life of contradiction, tension, and lack of progress. We race through an endless list of activities. Exhausted, and discouraged we try harder without focus we sporadically work longer hours, thereby condemning ourselves to tread water.

By shutting a door, we allow doors with different opportunities to open. How many times have you heard someone who has experienced a major failure say it was the best thing that ever happened to them? They had to quit one situation to reconsider their beliefs and free their minds to alternative possibilities. The truth is, only you can decide what is worth giving up. 

What are you willing to let fall away to achieve your goals?


Keep on writing.

  1. Letting go in the way you prescribe sounds prudent and wise. I’ve always had competing goals. I should choose one goal, the one that is more productive and satisfying, and let go the rest.

    • Oh that is easier said than done, Christopher. Ask me how I know. 😊 And the truth is there are many things I enjoy, while other goals make me a better family member, citizen, etc. I have never been able to whittle the list down to one item. Besides
      when you are working on a large goal it is often prudent to have alternate items to work on during downtime or when you just need a break.

      But I am acutely aware of the little things that sneak in to consume my time. I mean sleeping is so overrated. 😄😄😄
