We live like somewhere along the way, life will magically reveal a big secret that will answer all the questions or solve all the problems. Then we wait for it. We keep plugging along each day assuming we will eventually find the secret and then it will be the right time to make a change.
How do I say this gently? There is no big secret. You may have noticed some people doing the things you wish you could do. Or others who must have found the big secret because they found the courage to throw caution to the wind and go after their big dream. Nope. They still had obstacles, fears, nay-sayers and uncertainty. They just did it afraid. They’re probably still dealing with fear and self-doubt about some things, but they finally reached a point of decision or realization that this is it.
The time we have is short and if we don’t get out there and make stuff happen, it simply will not happen. Did they find a foolproof method or a guarantee for success? Probably not. Success is a relative thing though. We each get to define what it means for us and it is not the same for everyone. If you don’t believe me, just try setting goals and living according to someone else’s definition of success and see if that brings you contentment and satisfaction. Hint: it won’t. The moral of this story? Get moving! Prioritize what’s important. Get clear on your goals and live each day doing something that aligns with your goals and priorities.
