Who would have guessed that you could actually learn life lessons from Polar Bears?
That’s exactly what happened to me on my recent trip to Churchill, Canada where I watched the bears in their natural habitat. Absolutely amazing!!!
And exactly what did I learn? Several things. The first is:
A relentless focus on your goal!
Polar Bears spend each and every day hunting for food, and their main source of food is seals. Without this goal in mind, they will not survive. They are focused and unrelenting every minute of the day as they hunt to stay alive.
So how does this relate to you and me?
Well, first of all, do you have a specific goal in mind, either personally or professionally? Hopefully, you have one for both phases of your life. Either way, know what you want to accomplish – define it and describe it down to the very last detail. Why do you have this goal? What are you hoping to accomplish? What is the end result?
Once you figure it out, focus on that goal each and every day. Pursue your goal relentlessly, like your life depends on it. And if someone tells you it can’t be done, use that as fuel to propel yourself forward. Never give up on your goal – or as I like to call them – dreams.
Think of it this way – when you believe in yourself, you have armor no one can crack. Nothing or no one can get in your way.
And that is just one of the many lessons I learned from the Polar Bears.
Personally, my goal is to become the most dynamic speaker you have ever heard. I can feel it in my bones, I work hard on it every day, and best of all, it warms my heart. I know it is what I am meant to do.
So, what is your goal – what is your dream? What gets you out of bed each morning, ready to pursue it relentlessly!
