What if I fail?
What if you succeed?
Many of us are waiting around on the sidelines of life just waiting for success to be guaranteed. We wait to be more prepared, to have more money, to have more time, or more luck. We passively wait for it to arrive at our doorsteps. The truth is that all those excuses are just lies.
Lies that helps us feel better about not trying. Lies that keep us from experiencing the uncomfortable challenges that will come if we went for it. Lies that keep us in a web of chaos, feeling unfulfilled, afraid and depressed. Wishing and thinking about something different but yet too paralyzed to pursue it.
In order for you to get unstuck, you have to be willing to put the truth first. All these excuses are just lies that you have been telling yourself. I realize that your reality right now might seem like the only truth that can exist. Maybe you are struggling financially right now, or pressed for time from working and going to school, or really could benefit from more expertise in what you want to pursue. But that doesn't mean that you can't push through those obstacles. Many before you, already have.
Putting an end to the lies is not just about "trying" to do it. It's not even enough to really really want it. You have be willing to envision a new truth. One that says that you too can do it. A truth that supports your right to feel better physically, one that supports your right to travel more, or to wake up with calm and joy instead of panic and dread.
Only about 5 percent of people actually create change even after having the information and resources they need. You see it's not about having more to do more. You already have everything you need to take the first step. Stop lying to yourself. Set your eye on the prize. Envision yourself getting there. Get giddy about how good it will feel when you are there. Then with all the gumption you can muster- take purposeful daily action.
What if this time around you actually pushed past your fears?
