Ok I try to be nice, really I do! But HOW MANY TIMES do I have to “give permission” for you to work on YOUR DREAMS!?! They are not my dreams, they are not your uncle Johnny’s dreams, they are YOUR dreams! You had them, you keep having them, WHAT are you waiting for?
Ok so I think that got your attention, my point is this, excuses kill you, any excuse, big, small, it doesn’t matter. It seems lately people have been looking for someone else to hold their hand as they jump out of the plane. Now don’t get me wrong, I am all for motivation and inspiration HOWEVER these tools can (and have in a lot of cases) become a major CRUTCH in your life!
Another word for a crutch is an ANCHOR. If you can’t get up and do what you need to do without 2 hours of inspirational song and dance, well you are really going to have a hard time at this. Whether you want to admit it or not that 2 hour motivation session is a subtle way of letting someone else rule your life!
It is time to strip ourselves down to the gears that move us, are we TRULY motivated? If so then you don’t need the pep talk. Are you REALLY willing to jump out of the plane to see that dream become reality? Then stop waiting for someone else to tell you to jump, and just, JUMP!
