Start From Where You Are

Barbados – Someone looked at this rock and saw stairs. What wonderful ingenuity

Everything happens right now. Start from where you are. Where else can you start from?  It’s a good time to check in with yourself and really get in touch with how you feel.

Sometimes we get so busy just getting through life that we lose sight of what we truly want to create.

Check in and ask yourself how you feel. Are you a little bored, like you know that there should be something more to life, but things seem a little pointless sometimes?

Is inertia holding you back? It’s time to break free from the gravitational pull of mediocrity and take control of your life – because it’s your life to control.

Life is way too short to waste time being ordinary.

First off – get real with yourself. Where are you right now? Where do you want to be instead? And, most importantly, how far apart are the two?

Pick something that you want to change. If you are like most people, you can think of at least five things that you want to be different. It might be your fitness goals, maybe the things you eat or the amount of time you spend watching television instead of working towards goals that matter to you.

It’s okay! We are all guilty of this. For some reason we think that finally a tomorrow will come when all of this just magically happens and we can be the heroes of our fantasies.

The only problem is – there is no strength in putting off actions until tomorrow. There is nothing you can do tomorrow that will propel you forward. You can only do something right now, in this moment, to start going in a direction that moves you away from where you are.

Everything begins with a decision. One decision, one firm commitment from you is all it takes to change your life permanently. If this simple fact doesn’t excite you, then you aren’t dreaming big enough. 

Your dreams should jazz you, should motivate you, should make you jump out of bed every morning saying, “I want this! I deserve this and I WILL HAVE THIS!!”

So right now, before you go any further, think about what you truly want. What do you desire to have more than anything else? Attach feelings to what you want. If you said you want more money, why? Will it make you happy to be able to afford whatever you want, to have security, to live your life by your design and not be struggling to make ends meet?

What are the feelings behind your desires? When you get clear enough about this, you should be feeling excited and ready to take action.

This is the most crucial step. Once you know what it is that you want and why, what can you do right now to start the ball rolling? Can you make a couple of phone calls, update your resumé, research some classes, read a book – what can you do in this moment to begin to build momentum?

It’s like the snowball rolling down a hill. It starts out small and easily crushed, but as it continues to roll and gain speed, it becomes an unstoppable force.

That can be your goal – to become an unstoppable force of nature who will succeed and will live the life of your dreams.

Start now. Get clear about what you want and then do something about it. Right now!

It’s your time. Because remember, if not now, then when? Time is running out.
