Have You Found Your GOOBI?

Written by Jeff McCall

Many people spendrepparttar whole of their lives searching for that elusive secret to their own success. Oftenrepparttar 124087 so- called 'secret' is sitting right under their very nose.

Let's face it, unless you're naturally gifted, making a success of anything involves a whole lot of hard work. A lot ofrepparttar 124088 time,repparttar 124089 work we're faced with is often boring and monotonous. Wouldn't it be great if it were fun? Ding, dong! Arerepparttar 124090 lights starting to flash, and bells starting to sound inside your head yet?

I'm tempted to carry on rambling at this stage, but I know your just itching to find out what a GOOBI is. Am I right?

Well I'll put you out of your misery right now! GOOBI is simply a mnemonic for Get Out Of Bed Inducer. It's that thing that gets you out of bed inrepparttar 124091 morning and puts a spring in your step. It's also been described elsewhere, as your "Friday night essence". Think about it, what would you happily spend Friday night working on instead of dining with friends or watching a movie?

I was reminded ofrepparttar 124092 GOOBI concept recently, whilst watching a film. The title ofrepparttar 124093 film escapes me, which is probably best because it was rubbish. If I was to tell yourepparttar 124094 title you'd only go watch it, and then you'd be saying why did he mention that film it was rubbish.

Anyway, at one point inrepparttar 124095 film,repparttar 124096 leading character made a statement that struck a chord with me. He said "The secret to success is to find something you love doing, and do it forrepparttar 124097 rest of your life!" Of course, he was talking about finding your GOOBI.

So here comesrepparttar 124098 hard part. To find your GOOBI you have to start thinking for yourself. I know that bit's going to come as a shock to some of you, as a lot of people will go torepparttar 124099 ends ofrepparttar 124100 earth to avoid thinking for themselves. Isn't it just a lot easier to run withrepparttar 124101 flock and letrepparttar 124102 shepherd and his dog make allrepparttar 124103 decisions for you?

Earl Nightingale once said "Whatrepparttar mind can conceive and truly believe, it can achieve!"

Was he right? Well you tell me,repparttar 124086 proof is right in front of you! Take a look around, right now, this very moment. Everything you see before you,repparttar 124087 consumer goods,repparttar 124088 furnishings,repparttar 124089 decoration, they all began as a flicker of an idea in someone's imagination.

The truth is, you can achieve absolutely anything you want to. But you have to be realistic here, you have to take account of your own physical limitations. I mean, if you're currently enjoyingrepparttar 124090 autumn of your life, I'm sorry to have to tell you, you ain't going to win an Olympic gold medal inrepparttar 124091 100 metres sprint. And if you throw yourself offrepparttar 124092 top of a hundred storey building, flap your arms as much as you like, but rather than soar withrepparttar 124093 birds you'll still make a nasty mess onrepparttar 124094 pavement.

If you're still with me, you'll appreciate that there's an absolute limit to your potential that I'll call your "real ceiling". Now unless you're pretty peculiar,repparttar 124095 chances are that you're currently living under a "false ceiling" that you've created and installed all by yourself. Didn't know you were a craftsman did you?

This "false ceiling" is severely restricting your growth. It's so low, you're banging your head on it every time you try to stand up straight. Your banging your head so much, trying to achieve anything is a constant headache. Ouch! There you go again!

A lot of people have made a big mistake, they've built their "false ceiling" no more than three or four feet fromrepparttar 124096 floor. They can't even sit up straight without banging their heads. Are you one of them?

So how high is your "real ceiling" then? Imagine you're standing in an atrium, or even a cathedral, whererepparttar 124097 ceiling towers above you by as much as 100 ft or more. There's your "real ceiling"! Look up, how high is that? You'll get a stiff neck just looking.

This "real ceiling" isrepparttar 124098 limit of what you can realistically and absolutely achieve in your life. But here's where it gets interesting.

I want you to imagine everything you've ever desired, even in your wildest dreams,repparttar 124099 fast car,repparttar 124100 big house,repparttar 124101 money,repparttar 124102 power,repparttar 124103 happiness. How high is your "dream ceiling"?
