Life is full of possibilities. But possibility is not the same thing as probability. And probability is not the same thing as predestination.
We miss out on so many possibilities because we don’t take the right steps to turn them into probabilities. And we take our probabilities for granted, assuming that they’re predestined to happen for us, and then we cry foul when they don’t.
Not everything is meant to be, but there are so many things that could be that will never come to pass for us. And you know why? Because our life is missing a major piece of the picture that’s keeping success out of our reach.
That one thing is INFRASTRUCTURE.
If you want something for yourself or for your life, then your life needs to be built on a framework that supports you attaining what you want. You need to have a foundation that leads you to your goal, and you need excess capacity to be able to handle the new things that come with success once you reach it.
You want six-pack abs? Then your fridge should be stocked with lean proteins, fruits and veggies, and your schedule ought to include regular workouts that burn fat, engage your core and build muscle. If you eat fast food every other day and always supersize your order of fries, your dietary infrastructure isn’t set up to get you the results you want.
You want financial freedom? Then your life should support you developing and growing multiple streams of income, wise investments, and an aggressive savings plan. Living above your means and playing the lotto everyday should not be your plan.
You want healthy relationships? Then you should be making it a point to spend time with the people you love, creating memories, having meaningful conversations, and showing up for them when they need you. If your life is set up so that you can’t ever take an important phone call, make it to a birthday party or talk a friend out of a bad idea, then you’re sabotaging your own success.
Success isn’t as mysterious as it seems. It takes focus, intentionality, consistency, and hard work. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. Take an area of your life that’s not what you want it to be, and examine the infrastructure you’ve set up. Chances are you could give yourself a better foundation to build on, turning possibilities into better probabilities.
