Why haven’t you started yet? What’s stopping you? What do you think you need to start?
The truth is that all you’re doing is coming up with excuses to not start. It’s time to stop!
The thing is, if it is really important to you, you will find the first possible step. It will come naturally to you and all you have to do is grab the opportunity with both hands and execute.
There is nothing magical about success. Success is built one step at a time when you create success habits. What is a success habit? Easy, it’s a habit you create, a new habit, that replaces and obsoletes your old habits. You will automatically want to create these new habits once you have your goal in mind.
If you find yourself making excuses you have to ask yourself why. What are the beliefs that are holding you back? You know, you and your thoughts are the only things stopping you from doing something.
It’s only when you start doing that the next steps will reveal themselves to you. It’s like driving a car in the dark. The headlights will only show you a little bit of the road ahead, yet you trust that you see enough to keep on driving.
So, stop your whining and get your ass in gear. You don’t want to live a mediocre life, just like me.
My favorite quote at the moment is Start before you are ready. You will have a dream, but you won’t know the how of it yet. The answers will come to you as you keep going.
So many people have said it before and I will also say it: If I can do it, so can you!
Take action now
I want you take a good look at your life and consider this. If you don’t do anything today, your life will be exactly the same in 5 years or in 10 years. Then ask yourself if this is a future you want. If the answer is a sounding NO, then you know what to do.
If you don’t change, nothing will. That is a fact. It’s actually a universal law. Who are you to fight the universe?
The truth is, your life consists of habits. Both good and bad. What you have to do is to create new habits that obsoletes your old habits instead of trying to fix them. You can’t polish a turd. It may look better, but it’s still a turd.
I have a poster that I printed off the web and it states: Get into the habit of asking yourself, “Does this support the life I’m trying to create?”
It’s a daily reminder to keep me on track. My goal is clear and by always asking myself this question I know exactly what I have to do every day.
