Have you ever told yourself that you are going to make something happen and then nothing happens. That’s because you didn’t follow through. You didn’t have the right rituals in place – little things you do each that build up and gradually condition your body and mind to make things happen.
Little things people do every day that stop them from moving forward with their lives:
- You change nothing and expect different results.
- You keep waiting for the right time.
- Your planning and focus are in disarray.
- You make the rejections of yesterday the focal point of today.
- You refuse to accept necessary risks.
Living is about learning as you go. Living is risky business. Every decision, every interaction, every step, every time you get out of bed in the morning, you take a small risk. To truly live is to know you’re getting up and taking that risk, and to trust yourself to take it. To not get out of bed, clutching to illusions of safety, is to die slowly without ever having truly lived. Think about it: If you ignore your instincts and let shallow feelings of uncertainty stop you, you will never know anything for sure, and in many ways this un-knowing will be worse than finding out your instincts were wrong. Because if you were wrong, you could make adjustments and carry on with your life without looking back and wondering what might have been.
