Yes, we have only one life.
Yes, it is not a dress rehearsal, pilot implementation, practice run or practice exercise.
This is the one.
Yes, I hear you…. Your life is complicated and you have to contend with ….. amongst other things and you’re ….. is not helping.
Do excuses help?
Don’t they just delay the inevitable moment where you have to make the tough decision? Take the plunge? Step up to the plate?
Toughen up and take a stand. Draw the line. Do the difficult thing. Grow a spine.
We tend to shy away from the things that require serious effort, involve a lot of emotion or simply stress us out. We cower in little recesses of our minds, hoping it will pass, wishing it will deteriorate in severity or impact. We avoid these things for long periods of time but in the end – BANG!!!!!!
From my own personal experiences and what I have observed in my professional career, we can only grow through change, learn through sacrifice or pain and achieve when we expend effort.
This is a call to each and every one reading this to accept this fundamental rule, turn around and do the right thing. Address the tough and difficult things in your life.
YOU don’t have the time to waste. Do the math – you only have 364*(75-Your current age) =XXX days left.
Hurry up; you cannot waste one more day….
