So here’s the thing, I hear people say, “When my children are grown and are on there own, I’m gonna…..(fill in the blank)” or “I would like to……..(?) but don’t have the time right now.”
Why not now? Are you afraid? Is it “fear” that keeps you from taking that first step to fulfilling your hearts desire? If so, you’re not alone. Fear can absolutely be a paralyzing emotion. Learn to make it work for you and not against you. I understand that there are some things in life that need to “wait’ there turn when it comes to long term goals, but fear need not keep you from planning to take action. Sometimes timing is everything!
If fear of failure is an issue, as is with most people, look at failure in a different light with a different attitude. Instead of fearing failure, embrace it! Take on the mind set that although failure may not be an option for most people, it is for me (you)! Allow yourself many chances to fail so you can be good at failing. Seriously, stay with me….. Once you knocked out the “Oh my God I don’t want to fail” kind of anxiety that whispers in your mind, you will eventually be able to feel calmness and peace inside that will allow yourself to succeed. But here’s the deal, if you don’t start now with this thought in your head, it will take you longer to get there… if at all! So again, how about now?! Think about it.
It takes time to retrain your brain from old habits to new habits. Practice, practice, practice. Discipline your thoughts. Your thoughts will move you to action. What is in your heart? What lies there usually is a clue to a “passion” or your desire for “something”. What do you want to do about it?
Again I ask, How about NOW? Why not now?
Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.
