dedicated to …

“The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and faith to believe it is possible.”  Richard Devos

In the movie “Waiting for Superman” there are those who are dedicated to the successful reform of the education system and yet they face enormous resistance to implementing positive change.   (Yes, watch the move “Waiting for Superman” … it is very good).  Michelle Rhee is an example of a person dedicated to a mission and to making change in the education system in Washington, D.C.

You may have noticed that the most successful people are the ones who are passionately dedicated to seeing their dreams realized.   It might not have been the person with the highest intelligence that achieved the greatest results.   It may have been the unwavering desire to do something that was important, a dedication to a personal or professional objective.

Everyone is dedicated to something, personal development, recreation/leisure, financial success, fitness/health, spiritual growth, relationship, family or their career.      There are those who are dedicated to serving others and others are dedicated to being served by others.   For some people finding out what they are dedicated to is a mystery.  They know that deep within that there is something missing from their life and they would like to solve the mystery.   Discovering that something is missing in life is often triggered in mid-life from about 40-60 when a person realizes that there is something more than what they have been living.    For men it might be questioning the job that they have held for years or for women it might be a relationship concern.   No matter what it is there is a yearning to be able to dedicate energy to something that is personally meaningful for most people at some point in their life.

What do you want to dedicate your life to or part of your life to?

“What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists…and it becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want…and are fully determined not to quit until you get it.” 
Alexander Graham Bell
