“A gold metal is a wonderful thing, but if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it!” -Coach Irv Blitzer, portrayed by John Candy
This story shares so much inspiration for the hopefuls of the world, especially those that wrestle with naysayers and/or perceived impossibilities that also happen to be the very goals they are striving for.
For me, this one quote from the movie, “Cool Runnings” drills down to the core of any goal I wish to achieve. What is it going to take to reach my goal? What if I achieve it? What if I don’t?
I must be ready to accept what is required to reach my goals. Attaining the target of my desire takes WORK, a dirty 4-letter word these days, it seems. Our contemporary society has developed a mindset that attainment should be fast, just as much as it should be easy.
As I continue on this Master Key journey, I am acquiring an excellent working/specifying/visualization ratio for achieving all I desire with and for my future self. I am learning to embrace the journey itself. This is life-changing for me, as I have skated through my journey in a disconnected, get to the end sort of way. To what end? I never really knew. Now I know where I am headed. I have the tools needed for the journey. Best of all, I AM enough without the desired outcomes, just as I AM enough with them!
