Stop Wasting Time!

It’s funny how for many of us tomorrow looks better than today for getting things done. For doing the things we know must be done. We put off those things that are so important for us and we lie to ourselves by saying that we will do them later, we will do them tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.

Stop fooling around, it is your life that you’re playing with, your future and the future of the people you love.

It’s time to stop putting off until tomorrow what you know you need to do TODAY!

Q&AHave a little Q & A with you! The first question, “What is holding you back?” Give yourself honest answers.

Relationships are passing you by. Time is not on your side. It keeps ticking away regardless of your attitude toward it. If you love someone… tell them. If you’re not quite sure whether you love you… that’s something to work on too. You know what you need to do, so do it.

Your excuses don’t work anymore. Give them up.

It’s most likely what you are thinking about right now as you read this.

STOP! What was that thought? Maybe that’s it!

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

You may want to begin by standing alone in front of a mirror, looking at yourself and having a gut level discussion with yourself about what causes you to postpone getting to the good things in your life. Perhaps doing this is something you should have done long ago.

I’ve had that discussion with me several times in my life and each time, what follows is a breakthrough. Are you really ready for a breakthrough or are you afraid of that too?

Don’t be afraid anymore. Fear begone! Fear won’t get you anywhere. You have to take the first step while you are still afraid.

Trust your intuition for a change. Some say that intuition is the voice of God. I say, “It’s time to start listening to it.” It’s that inner knowing. Your intuition is always right, you know.

Dale Carnegie one said, “Do the think you fear to do the most and the death of fear is certain.”

You deserve the best whether you believe it or not.

Stop wasting time. Get busy. Time is passing you by.

Be brave. It’s time. It could be – “now or never.” Never is rarely ever a good option. Now works best.

Still don’t know what the hell I’m talking about? That’s okay for right now. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to take some time to think about what it might be. If you discover that it’s more than one thing – prioritize!

Once you’ve got it – make some new, wise choices and keep moving forward.
