Now since I have your attention, may I ask you —
Do you know when you’re going to die?
Of course you don’t!
So why are you living your life like you have all the time in the world?
You know you want to change, help others, reach goals, do what you’re actually passionate about, and make the best out of your time on this Earth.
Instead, you just keep on putting things off, and filling up that list of your —
I will’s, I want to’s and I’m going to’s.
Seriously, how many of those are you actually going to do, or at least attempted?
This is your – ***WAKE UP CALL***-
Quit TALKING and start taking ACTION, today!!!
I’ve been in your shoes, so this isn’t just coming from someone who thinks they know what you need to hear.
I’ve actually experienced it (sadly to say) more than once.
Let me share a quote with you that really helped put things into perspective, and inspired me to start living my life to the fullest. One with a real purpose.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart” – RIP – Steve Jobs
What’s Really Stopping You?
You’re Fears, laziness, or a boat load of other excuses.
If you’re going to truly change and start doing, then you must realize you’re the only one holding yourself back, -Point Blank!
Don’t you just really makeup excuses so you can feel better about yourself for giving up, or not trying at all.
Instead of looking at all the reasons why you can’t do something, change your thinking around and start doing everything you can do, to achieve it.
Cause if you don’t, then somebody with less than you, has it far worse than you, will.
And later down the road, you’ll still be there sitting in the same place, and you’ll be admiring them.
I heard this the other day on a podcast from Glen.
He said something similar to this:
I hear so many people tell me about new internet ventures (projects) their going to do, and then I never hear about them again, or ever see them go through with it.
That made me ask myself, is that me? I’ll confess, yes it was. But not anymore.
That really helps motivate me to not just be another average internet marketer, blogger, or just another talker.
Think about this for a moment….
Every successful person you know, or any person who is truly living the lives they want too, top internet marketers, artists, inventors, movie stars and you’re idols, have one thing in common. They’re doers -not talkers.
Don’t just settle for average
The thing is, if you were just like everyone else, you wouldn’t really care about actually doing things. You would be satisfied just talking about them. And you wouldn’t still be reading this blog post.
But you do care, and it bothers you.
Cause you know you can make a difference, do something better, change things, and live the life that you want too.
Now it’s time to start doing something towards reaching it.
Are you ready?
The Complete 180
First off, you need to admit and own up to the fact that what you’ve been doing, or the lack of, isn’t working.
Now you need to start taking some form of action, the first step to accomplishing whatever it is that you want to do, and keep moving forward.
Or, if you’ve already started something, but know it’s going in the wrong direction, then you need to reassess what you’ve been doing, and decide on the steps you need to take, to get back on the right track.
You need to drastically change what you’re doing right now, and go in an entire new direction. Expose yourself to different people, see, hear and do different things.
Cause you already know, everything you’re doing right now, isn’t working.
It’s time to – step out of your comfort zone and take risks. This is the only way for real growth.
No greatness has ever been achieved by holding back or playing it safe.
It’s time to let the world know what you’ve really been holding in, and accomplish what you already knew all along that you could achieve.
But just never took that first step, or kept pushing forward when things got too hard.
Cause it’s not going to be easy, and you already know that.
This time, it’s going to take everything you got, it’s going to be the fight of your life.
Commit fully, or don’t even start. It’s either you’re all in, or all out.
Half in isn’t going to take you anywhere meaningful, you’ve tried that before.
Whatever you need, it’s out there, just waiting.
If you need some inspiration, a motivator, help in general, then go find it. Don’t sit there and wait for it to come to you, cause it may never come.
Do whatever you need to do, to help you take action and accomplish what you really want.
Even if it’s putting inspirational quotes, goals, or a picture of your dream car on your mirror, to help remind you everyday, the life change(s) that you are making.
This isn’t going to be a total transformation or life change, overnight.
You might be feeling pumped, psyched, and ready to conquer after reading this post, which would be awesome, but it’s going to wear off, and the real world will start once again.
Then you’ll be back to that all so very familiar comfortable place you’ve been before. And be thinking, am I actually going to change, or stay the same?
The sole responsibility of making a change and going after what you really want, is held completely on you.
Nobody, or nothing else.
You don’t even need to worry about moving forward by leaps and bounds. Small steps on a daily basis towards your goals, is better than staying at the same exact place.
Except, I started to do something about it. So, how about you?
