“Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay.”
-Simone de Beauvoir
We all hope and dream. We all have aspirations whether they are little or big. Do you also agree most of us have a goal list but the problem that usually arise is that we’re always thinking, I’ll get to it later; I’ve got time.
There’s this task that you’ve been skipping and avoiding since days, or maybe, weeks? Yes? Okay, I know this has filled your imagination and you usually ask yourself when you’d be able to complete most of those activities and achieve your life goals but it hasn’t happened yet.
The problem is that most of us are busy fantasizing about the final results rather than following through the baby steps (process) of getting there. We keep persuading our inner self, we give fake assurances to ourselves – promising the tomorrow that never comes which sadly doesn’t yield any positive results. This is the spirit of procrastination.
Its so unfortunate that we waste so much of life’s ephemeral span of time by complaining and convincing oneself reasons not to do things right now but later. Your goal might be to work out and have a nice body, another might be to start that business idea you have in mind, learning a new skill or writing and publishing your dream book. The truth is that the more you suspend the task for later, the less the chances of getting them done. Never take this moments for granted. Nothing ever promised tomorrow.
Do you see that clock on the wall? Yes, that how it’d keep ticking and that tick-tock says loudly to you that it waits for no one. You need to understand the language of the clock.
Whatever is important to you now, whatever you feel passionate about doing in this life, don’t take time for granted. Don’t waste the gift you’ve been given. Just do it!
“Even though the future seems far away, it is actually beginning right now.”
Don’t daydream, over plan, or over think but actually do it.
Some people fall into the victim of waiting for perfection before they execute, some falls into the den of negative people and of course some are consumed by the fire of fear.
“A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.”
-George S. Patton
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
I’d like to tell you that you’d never find enough answers to your questions on google on “How can I do this or that?” or “I’ve been thinking about doing that or this,” because there will always be obstacles on your way to stop you.
Know that, you really need to be inspired and motivated but If you dont believe in yourself, get up on your feet and do what you ought to do, those motivational messages could be worthless.
Its definitely not easy and I know it’s hard.
However, the best you can do is to fight the resistance, forshake what’s holding you back,and begin somewhere – start small and win BIG.
“We may not know what each day has in store for us. We could be gone tomorrow. Any minute could truly be our goodbye. But we do have this moment. This time. Today. Right now. It takes way more effort to shell out hate then it does to allow love to flow freely in our lives. After all, it’s what we were born to do.”
