We Must Do What We Can

What is it that you're not doing? That you're waiting to do, that you've always wanted to do, but you aren't?

What is it that you're waiting for the right time to do, the right people to do, the right resources to do it with now?

                                                What are you allowing to stop you?

If you asked the best problem solver in your life how they could do what you want to do, would they have an answer for how you could do it? If there is a solution, then are your excuses invalid? Or is there something underneath the the reasons you say you can't the real issue?

Is there some hidden fear stopping you? Perhaps a fear that you don't even know is there, that makes you automatically say, no, that won't work, we can't do that now, this isn't a good time?

In order to move forward with our life and our goals, we must identify the hidden reasons stopping us from living life to the fullest. We must stop and be honest with ourselves and ask the questions that may be difficult to answer, because those questions may show our weakness, that we've been trying so hard to keep hidden.

Find a quiet place to get away from everyone and every technical devise, (go hide in your closet if you need to get away from the kids) and grab a pen and notebook.

Start by asking yourself:
  •  What am I really afraid of?
  • What is the worst thing that could happen if I did this thing I want to do? (then really picture the whole scenario, as if it goes the absolute worst it could go.)
  • What is the best thing that could happen if I did this thing I want to do? (same thing really visualize the best possible scenario if you totally and completely went for it.)
  • What is really stopping?
 Those are just a few questions to ask, but as you sit in that quiet place and listen, you will come up with more answers, and more questions.

Next we have to take the emotions out of the answers/excuses. The key thing here is to not be tied to it emotionally, don't be tied to the answers or the outcome, try to listen and debunk your reasons as if you are someone else and not emotionally moved by the implications of any answer, but as if you are a 3rd party bystander.

This may take some practice, but if you are able to do it, you can be your own best advocate.

This is your life, you will only get one, don't wait to do all the things you've always dreamed of doing. Disseminate the and obliterate the excuses, so you never get to the point where you have to say, it's too late now, I should have done that when I was younger.
