Have You Been Putting Off Your Dreams? The Time to Take Action Is Now!
We all have dreams. Some are big — things you hope to accomplish in a lifetime. Others are small, perhaps something you want to achieve within this year.
Yet, putting those dreams into action, taking conscious efforts to achieve their realization, is another story.
What are your dreams?
For today, tomorrow, 10 years from now? Or, something you thought you would accomplish, but still haven’t gotten around to?
Some people might not put their dreams into action but still have them, pushed into the recesses of their minds.
“Some day,” you tell yourself, “I will accomplish XXX.”
But here’s my question: what are you waiting for?
Why settle for living a mediocre life rather than an exceptional one?
Why do those things “later”?
Why wait to really live to your fullest potential?
What if a doctor told you only six months to live? What would you do? How would you act? What would be the most important things you would want to accomplish?
No one wants to think their time is up tomorrow or the day after, but the truth is, we all have a finite amount of time on this Earth.
If you were actually given six months to live, undoubtedly you would make the best use of your time. But — what about now?
Why not start living that way now? Why wait another day just living an ordinary life, when you could be living an extraordinary one?
What is holding you back? What are you waiting for?
Now, imagine you live a long, full life to 105 years old!
How do you want to spend all those years? Do you want to age with regret? Do you want to mourn the loss of your dreams?
There will come a day when you won’t have the energy mentally or physically to go after your goals, so time is of the essence.
Decide TODAY to start living a life of purpose!
To get you there, you can start looking at your roadblocks — those things keeping you from living to your fullest, slowing you down, inhibiting your potential.
For me, I tend to procrastinate. I can start my day with the best of intentions to get important tasks done, but I soon find myself detouring from the path.
I end up filling my hours with busyness and errands. I wind up busy being busy, but getting NOTHING done. How is that possible?
I know the most important things I need to do, and the ones that will bring me ultimate happiness; but I tend to put the more seemingly pressing things first, such as chores, errands, phone calls, etc.
Can you relate?
In fact, I procrastinated about writing this article. I knew what I wanted to say, but found excuses about writing it down on paper.
It seems I was “too busy” with less important tasks, so it didn’t get done. But the beautiful thing about it is the awareness I’ve been able to cultivate about my roadblocks. Now, I can take action!
So, here’s what I’m asking from you:
Once you can identify those two things, you’ll be able to take ACTION, move towards your PURPOSE, and finally, leave a LEGACY worth being proud of.
Tell us about your roadblocks and if you have overcome any. We love to hear from you in the comments below!
