Is it really possible to achieve everything you want in life, personally and professionally?

For many people, the idea of being, doing and having everything you genuinely want in life seems like a pipe dream. How many people actually take the time to really contemplate their true heart’s desire? A large majority of folks don’t even know what they really want out of life because they haven’t taken the time to even consider it.

That being said, I think it is a safe bet to say we all know “that one person” who has blissfully stumbled along, seemingly hitting the jackpot with each step in their life. They don’t worry about plans or what’s next. They “go with the flow.” Somehow, someway, they keep finding new and exciting ways to succeed.

Now, as mature, refined adults, we’d never say we hate those people, but let’s be honest …we hate those people. It is because we aren’t them. Most of us haven’t been so blessed. We worked hard and did exactly what was expected of us, but we still aren’t happy where our life is at the moment.

Sure, things are fine. It could be worse. We aren’t doing all that bad, after all. We have a couple of wins to our name. But a part of us always wonders, “why not me?” Why can’t I be the lucky one for once?

Feeling that way makes perfect sense. Getting lucky is great. Who wouldn’t want to get lucky in life more often? People often don’t give luck the credit it deserves when it comes to success. That said, luck isn’t the only thing you can leverage for success. There is something else, something anyone can add to their life.
