Aaahhh...the end of the week. A great time to reflect on what's been accomplished...how far we've gotten on our goals...on the things we truly want for our lives.
If you're living your goals, keep rockin'! If you've struggled this week and didn't accomplish what you set out to do, it's ok. Tomorrow starts a brand new day and a fresh new opportunity.
One of my favorite authors has a quote; "it doesn't matter if you failed last year, or you failed six months ago, or you failed last week, or you failed yesterday, or you failed a moment ago...all that matters is what are you going to do right now?"
What are you going to do to make your life the way you want? What are you going to do right now?
Remember, your life is shaped by the decisions that YOU make every day. NOBODY else in the worlds makes your decisions. It is true that other people have influence over your decision making. However, when all is said and done, at the end of the day, your life is shaped by (and your successes and failures are a result of) the decisions you make. NOTHING ELSE.
You have the opportunity to step up right now and live life on your terms. Design your life the way you want it.
I don't want to come to the end of my life and ever say to myself, "I wish I would've". That to me would be ultimate pain. I want to live my life full out while I have the opportunity. I know that I'm going to die someday. So are you...guaranteed. Choose to make your life great.
If you're procrastinating today, choose to not procrastinate...for one day. Face the thing you're not doing. DO IT. It will be worth it in the long run.
Take action. Take massive action. Work like you've never worked before. For one day, demand more from yourself than you ever have before. Demand more from yourself than anybody would ever expect. You will surprise yourself with what you can do.
Turn off the TV. Forget about it. It won't hurt you to miss one day...or, if you really want to change your life, unplug your TV from the wall and cut the cord with a pair of scissors. Tell your brain you're making a real decision. Literally, cut off the possibility of you wasting time in front of the TV. Better yet, give your TV away to someone else. Let them waste time. You've got living to do.
Design your life NOW. Start living your life NOW...not years from now. Time will pass...with certainty. Focus on the pain that will occur if you let time pass and haven't taken action like you know you should have. Take out a piece of paper and write down what you really want. Draw out a plan to get it. Then, take the first step. I know you can do it. You've accomplished things before. It's just a matter of DOING IT.
