We are a people of excuses. We allow ourselves to be consumed by fear so much so that we find ourselves lacking and inadequate to get or live that dream life we want. We find it easier to settle than to push. If asked now, “Are you where you hoped you would be at the start of this year?” While some of us may have experienced some growth, the majority still find themselves on the same page they were at the start of the year.
Why is that? Because the story changed from “someday” to “excuses”. Now you hear “Well, I couldn’t take the entrance exam into college because there was no time”, “I have not been able to leave him/her because I am afraid of starting over. I have put too much into this. He/she will change,” “I couldn’t get any capital to start the business,” “I don’t think I can actually do this…I am not that smart.”
We just keep making excuses…anything to get us away from actually making an effort towards what we really want to achieve. We are super comfy in our comfort zones. We don’t want to break a sweat but we want a dream life…how does this work?
Your thoughts are not magical without effort. Thinking it is one thing but doing something to actually achieve it, is a totally different ball game altogether.
How about we try something….Go get a pen and paper and write your goals on paper. This makes you more committed to achieving it.
Write down all your dreams and aspirations and the steps required to achieve them. Do you want to get a degree? Why not go online now and find out the necessary requirements to get you into that school and course of study that you want? Do you want to start a business? Why not carry out researches now to find out what that business entails before you start thinking of capital.
Money doesn’t necessarily have to come first. You need to be prepared all round for what you want before it can come to you because preparedness makes you ready for what your heart desires.
Make a decision today and act on it. The reason is simple…..IF YOU WANT IT, CREATE IT.
Make a move today……anything at all. Just take a step towards that dream goal no matter how minuscule. Just ensure you are a step forward from where you used to be. That is growth. That is progression.
You can start losing weight TODAY! You can start eating healthy TODAY! You can start making money TODAY! You can become a whole new you, TODAY! Break away from the chains of limitations and start living already.
LET YOUR SOMEDAY BE TODAY.
