When are you going to do what needs to be done to live the life you've always wanted?
"The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts
of today; Let us move forward with strong and active faith."
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
Time. Invented by man, yet we make it mean so much don't we. The passing of time has this nasty habit of silently creeping by - unnoticed if we're not careful. Of course we're going to get around to those important tasks which will make a difference to our lives aren't we? Then before you know it, a few weeks, months, years and even decades have passed by.
Did you know that most most men don't hit their stride until their late forties, and even their fifties or sixties? For those of us who still have an unhill climb that's reassuring. But my point is, if we REALLY want that which we say we want, we really DO have to make a stand. We really do have to draw a line and declare "that's it", I really am going to make a difference.
After all, life is to act. We must make a plan and put it into action - now, before it's too late. By that I mean it's never too late to learn new skills, but why wait? Enjoy them while you can - none of us know what's around the next corner.
Take a good look a round you at your close friends for example. How many of them want more for themselves? They still dream of creating a better life for themselves, yet it hasn't quite happened. You will notice before long some of them will wake up and get to work. So must you.
Because they are fed up living the way they are living, especially when they KNOW they have so much more to give. The later you leave whatever it is you need to do, the less lilkely you're gonna want to get out there and do it. And then you'll complain.
Just look around you at the negativity thrust upon us every day - from the news to tv programs. And it ain't gonna get any easier!
If you really want to make a difference, start taking steps towards the life you've always promised yourself. You and I both know no-one is going to do it for you. It's all up to you. And therein lies the magic. You have a choice. You can do anything you choose to do. Isn't that exciting? Why settle for anything less that you can be?
It may be an uphill struggle at times - remember there's no victory without a battle, but think for a moment of the joy and happiness you'll bring to the lives of others - and yourself. It may be the first time in your life that you feel truly alive.
Bear in mind that you're at your best when you give a damn.
You're at your best when you're out there contributing your gifts to humanity.
Go for it.
Get started today because humans are designed to reach beyond their comforatble grasp; to create. And that includes YOU.
