Who’s ever found themselves using the phrase “Now is not the time” or “I don’t have time”?????????
I know those were common in my life a few years ago. I just automatically said them all the time without hesitation.
I’m all like “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
And that was the end of it. I pushed it out of my mind and moved onto the next thought. But here’s the thing I didn’t realize that I was doing.
I was really just avoiding myself, even though I thought it resembled procrastination. I taught myself many different habits that were not good and I needed desperately to unlearn them.
I needed a new blueprint in my life because mine was completely outdated. Which meant I was going to have to work on myself. I needed to start living again instead of cruising through life on auto pilot.
So I just got up and I started making changes to my everyday routines. I learned that if I wanted something different in my life, that I was the only one that I could count on to bring change into my world.
Then I started doing things that I had never done before in my entire life. Like start a sales business from my home. I don’t sell hairspray to my clients, I sure as hell never sold skincare from my phone.
Then I started writing a blog, and I started a book club, and one thing led to another and here I am writing to you.
And why do I tell you all of this?
Because in the end it was I who had to take action. We can read a hundred books, listen to the best speakers in the entire world, and fill our minds full of knowledge. We can feel inspired and motivated and ready to take action.
But then when it comes time to for us to actually make the move, we freeze and we’re unable to do it. Here we are full of knowledge and tools to help us succeed, but we’re still unwilling to take action.
We are literally stuck in our own minds. We’re replaying a loop that we’re stuck on. We need to move forward by just going for it. You don’t need to have all the answers and you don’t need to have it all figured out.
You need to just go for it. Your NEVER going to grow by doing the same thing you always do.
