Now Is The Time
During the past few months I have seen many people within my circle of friends pass away. Most of them were no older than 40 years old. It is a sad thing to see people die so young and suddenly. With that being said, it had me thinking about conversations I have with people on a daily basis.
Many of them tell me of all their big dreams and goals that they will get to in the future sometime. Unfortunately, the future is not guaranteed for any of us. Whenever they tell me about waiting for the right time to go after their goals or dreams, I tell them that NOW is the time.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying jump blindly into hitting them goals. You have to have your plan of attack on how you are going to achieve those goals. Many people confuse planning the attack on their goals with stalling on their goals.
The serious people that make their plans have short term and long term goals on the journey to completing them all. When it comes to the stallers, most of their plan includes long term goals. They set those goals so far in the future that their grand kids will be helping them achieve those goals.
If you are one of those stallers, do not get offended with this article. We all stall from time to time. You just need to understand why you stall on accomplishing those goals.
One of the main reasons that you may stall on accomplishing your goals is fear. Deep down inside you are afraid. What are you afraid of ? The main thing that scares people is fear of failure.
Who really wants to fail ? No one wants to fail at doing anything, much less fail trying to achieve a goal or dream. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you will fail along the way.
Those failures are nothing more than lessons on what not to do or how to do things differently. As long as you are prepared, you can get through those little failures along the way.
It takes a lot of courage to really go after those dreams and goals that you have stored in your head. They are not in your head by accident.
There is a reason that you have been talking about starting your own business for so long. There is a reason that you keep talking about going back to school to get that degree. There is a reason why all of those thoughts are in your head.
Your inner self is talking but you are not listening. You just keep making excuses and putting those thoughts to the side. Eventually all those bright ideas, big goals, and dreams will fade away from your mind.
I will not let that happen to you. Stop putting those dreams to the back burner. NOW is the time to act on them. You can start small.
Sometime this week I need for you to make that first step. Whatever it may be, take it. The future is not guaranteed for any of us. NOW is the time!!!
