It seems it is far too easy for us to create excuses for why we haven’t done the things in life we want to do. We say things like “I’ll go there one day.” “I’ll be rich one day.” “I’ll find the right relationship one day.” Why is it one day? Why not today? By making ourselves content with these thoughts we are actually telling ourselves it’s okay to procrastinate some of the most important things in our lives.
Sometimes it’s the thought of how much time or effort doing these things will consume. That perhaps by taking action to have the life we want it will take away from what we have now. But isn’t that the whole point- that we desire something new and exciting? You can still maintain current aspects of your life while working towards the things you wish to achieve. You’d be surprised how much we humans are truly capable of- and in most cases you are the only one holding yourself back.
You could say that it’s the money required or a lack of opportunity that is preventing you from accomplishing your larger goals, but really you just need to go after those parts first. Create that opportunity you need to get what you want, save up your money if that’s what you have to do in order to reach your own success. Just don’t be content with where you are at right now, because with a little effort you can really attain the lifestyle you wish to live. And, believe it or not, most of the time it doesn’t even take as much time or effort as you imagined it would.
There are truly so many paths one can travel in this life. Think of how many different things even exist in our world! You can really do almost anything you’ve ever imagined- just by putting in the effort it requires. Because once you really reach the spot you’ve been working towards- you feel a sense of accomplishment like no other.
Go out there and take what you want, stay out of the way of other people’s dreams and efforts, and find yourself in a place you never thought you could make it to.
