It’s Time To Take Action
Quit playing around. The time has come for the work to be done and you know just what that means.
You know because you have done real work before. You may do it everyday.
Just not for yourself.
It’s time to cast aside fear and do this thing. You’ve learned enough. You have enough experience. You have all the knowledge you need because you know that it will take persistence. You know that.
But fear grips you. What if…
Perfect. We know you are human. Fear is part of life. It is at the root of much failure and inaction. Acknowledge that. Deal with that.
You will get more comfortable with fear as time goes on.
Quitting will no longer be an option for you.
You will use it as a driving force. It will allow you to be a finisher. Quitting will no longer be an option for you. Why?
Because you prepared for this.
You’ve been preparing for this for a long time. You’ve already done it in your mind. You’ve read the books and all the how-to articles. Committed action is all that is left.
Intentional committed action.
It’s time to take action.
Except this time, it won’t be for someone else. It will be for you. You deserve it.
If, of course, you take action.
Take that action today and see if it doesn’t make you come alive. The time has come. You’re ready.
Stop wasting time on stupid things.
Yes, stupid things. Watching tv, texting, FaceBooking don’t cut it. And, they aren’t going anywhere. You can always go back to them. They’ll wait.
… dreams and goals …
But, your dreams and goals won’t. You will get no closer to them. Hours will continue to pass. Yes, years will continue to pass. You will be able to talk about Dancing With The Stars with every one in the office. But, that won’t inspire them. By the way, wasn’t it you that said you were glad you weren’t them?
… so-and-so inspired you …
You also mentioned how so-and-so inspired you by his business on the side. Funny, I never remember him chiming in when folks were talking about that show. Do you? I guess he must have missed it. How long ago did he leave the company? People sure thought he was crazy.
He was. Crazy for waiting so long to change his story. The pen was in his hand the whole time. The story was waiting to be written. Along with all the other learning you’ve done, you’ve probably read his book.
You have the pen.
Change your story.
Make it a thriller. I can’t wait to read it.
Take action. Take intentional committed action. Take it today.
Your story awaits.
“Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it.
The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.”
In closing, I want you to know that I love you. It isn’t hard to fathom really. I love you because you are me, and we aren’t all that different. In fact, we’re more similar than you know.
Live it LOUD!
