Go After What You Want

go-after-what-you-want


If you want anything bad enough in life, many times you’ll have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone, to step out onto the ledge, and to put yourself out there in different ways, where at times, you might even have to face your fears. We all have different fears and concerns when it comes to going after what we want. Some of us are simply too afraid to go after what we want in life. But that ends up leaving us nowhere but at a standstill, and in the same place that we started. If you want anything bad enough in life, you need to go after it. And if you don’t go after what you want, not only you won’t get it, but you’re not going to grow and learn from whatever you could’ve experienced in the process.


Even when we fail and don’t get what we want when we do go after it, we still tend to learn from that failure to some degree. And some of us will tend to strive even harder towards our goals and towards reaching that one incredible thing that we want so badly, despite the fact that we might’ve failed once, twice, or even many times before. The only way that we can know whether or not we’ll achieve something is by going after it and trying. It’s true what they say, “If you don’t try, you’ll never know.” Those are some pretty incredible words to live by, if I do say so myself. If we wait around for things to just happen to us, we might end up waiting a really long time. And even when we wait, nothing can really be expected to happen, because if we don’t go after what we want, and if we don’t put our desires and goals into play, and stop at nothing until we achieve them, we won’t. 


Being that at times we have to go outside of our comfort zone, and face our fears in order to get what we want in life, it puts us in a position where we can accept a challenge and view it as an opportunity, or we can take the easy way out and turn it down, because of our fears. Having fear is one of the biggest culprits for why we don’t get what we want in life. It’s important to be aware of that. But just as well, it’s imperative to know that just because we should be fearless to some extent, and go after what we want, we still need to think very carefully before making any big decisions.


The last thing that anyone wants is to put themselves out there, hoping to get something great, but not being cautious enough to simply read the instructions so to speak, and know what’s involved or what the consequences might be. It’s always important to think really hard and to be cautious before making any big decisions in life. But once you’ve thought good and hard about making a big decision, and you’re well aware that something is a great opportunity for you, and the only thing that’s holding you back are your fears, then by all means, remember this article, and remember my words. Go after it, be fearless, and stop at nothing until you get what you want.
