Do you ever have those days you wake up roaring like a lion?
I’m having one of those days. I’m ready to put my hand to the plow, get some stuff knocked off my to-do list, and actually get closer to my goals.
We waste so much time. We find ourselves surfing the internet, totally sucked into reading other people’s statuses on Facebook, and before you know it, half of your day is gone! If I let myself, I get sucked into it, too.
It’s a trap. It’s a time sucker. It’s a time stealer. You never get that time back. And instead of working hard, focused on your to-do list and reaching your goals, another day is gone and you aren’t one step closer than you were.
Have you had days like these?
Or what about this… you know you need to exercise, but you keep saying, “tomorrow.” Tomorrow never comes because it’s always today! That’s why we need to live in the present. We can’t live only in the future, making future plans. And we can’t live wallowing in the past or even in the “what could have been’s” ~ we need to be more present than either the past or future.
If you aren’t present, you won’t make steps towards achieving your goals ~ whether they be to lose weight, get a promotion, exercise regularly, find a job, play more with your kids, eat better, connect with loved ones, etc. There are always excuses… always reasons not to. All you need is one good reason TO do something, and that will be enough to propel you forward… if you let it.
Sometimes, we need to get out of our own way because we are stopping our progress forward. We need to allow thoughts outside the box, too. Those are usually the ones that lead to greatness!
Who wants to keep going through the “daily grind” ~ who likes that term anyway?? Life is more than what most people make it. And unfortunately, most reading this won’t do anything to change their habits and their lives. You, on the other hand, WANT to change your life. You want to move forward. You want to progress. You want to reach your full potential – as a parent, as a spouse, in business, with finances, etc. You are willing to step outside your comfort zone and realize there is a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, and even blessing that comes with that.
So… get over yourself. Take a leap of faith. Do that thing that you know you should, but you’ve let some form of fear stop you! Fear is an outside force that will jump on you if you let it. But ONLY if you let it.
Are you ready to pick up your fearful baggage, toss it to the wind, and move forward? I am.
