WARNING: I may get sappy and poetic. This topic has me revved.
Indeed, we’re settling in to the new year. Just 4 weeks ago, when I spoke to people I was met with clear and sharp focus:
“This year is THE year”
“I’m ready to make it happen”
My little entrepreneurial heart sang.
My inner freedom chaser cried with joy.
I fanned flames with delight.
Now, just 4 weeks later, I’m hearing a lot more of this:
“Now’s not the right time”
“Maybe next year”
“I’m not sure if I’m ready”
And it’s got me thinking…
What are we waiting for?
Clearly, many of us are already losing steam.
How, less than 1 month into 2012, are we already willing to defer our happiness, freedom, impact and success?
I invite you to rise.
Rise each morning and WONDER:
“What could I create for the world that would be magnificent?”
Rise each morning and DREAM:
“What might my life look like if I lived it the way I WANT to?”
Rise each morning and DECIDE:
“What 3 things must I do today to make greatness happen?”
Rise each morning and ASK:
“Where am I feeling stuck, un-free and held back?”
Rise each morning and CHOOSE:
“Am I willing to be true to my vision, even if it means being uncomfortable?”
The people who you think of as “successful” (the easygoing ones, the skinny ones, the rich ones, the in-love ones, the happy ones…), wake up with the same day ahead as you.
The same 24 hours.
The same fears.
The same anxieties.
The same brilliance.
Don’t worry about what you don’t have.
