“Time waits for no one.”
Don’t let your dreams be dreams, yesterday you said tomorrow, so just DO IT.
– Shia Lebeouf
Did the line above get your attention? Good.
The world is evolving non-stop. News of a great achievement, by someone on the other side of the world. Thank to the social media, you will know about this anywhere and almost instantly.
Understandably, it can be disheartening to see other people’s success and feel like you have achieved nothing.
Why wait to change?
“Old habits die hard.” It’s an old saying, but it’s a reason why some people are perpetually stuck in a cycle of bad situations. It is time to get rid of bad habits, and start cultivating good ones. Do you want to wake up one day to be filled with regret?
Of course, this is easier said than done. Change is hard, it is human instinct to stick with known, comfortable routines. If not, all of humanity would have achieved nirvana or ascended to a higher plane of thinking.
The world waits for no one. Without change, you become obsolete and fall behind the times. Or worse, become filled with regret at the path not taken. Take that leap of faith!
Exercise and eat well for a healthier life. Quit smoking. Travel more. Develop positive thinking. Focus on a life goal. Get a pet kitten.
Having said that, do not let failure discourage you. It’s important to understand that success does not come instantly, nor does it come easily. KFC’s founder, Colonel Harland David Sanders did not see success until 1952, when he was in his 60s. And now, the outline of this Southern gentleman is an instantly recognizable icon worldwide.
It will not be easy. At the same time, the path will not be clear. In fact, Anything worth doing will never be easy.
Is you life not worth changing for the better?
