⚡️Every now and again, I am hospitalized from a genetic condition known as cystic fibrosis. I always try to share my story with a sense of authenticity that is refreshing for you all. I am human. Sometimes, such as now, my blog posts are more of a personal diary entry to remind you that we all are dealing with things behind the scenes that go far beyond our sales careers. This journal entry from the archives is such and is here to serve as a reminder to appreciate your life, during your life. ⚡️
Appreciate Your Life
The thing is, we all have goals that we keep putting off. We all have things on our bucket list that we are afraid to try for because if we fail, then we are officially out of excuses.
But that’s the thing. It never gets easier than it is right now, today, this very moment to creating action and progress towards your dreams.
You’re not getting any younger. Time is only speeding up. The situation only improves when you decide to act.
It’s so much easier to live a life of mediocrity than the life you were born to live.
We can be comforted by our excuses and rely on short-term gratification to get through the tough moments…
But that’s not what life is about.
Life is about waking up and pursuing your dreams.⚡️
There is no such thing as failure, the world exists to give you feedback.
If you don’t see the results you want, you’re not failing you are just learning from the world what will and will not work for you.
Please stop putting off your future because you’re afraid in the present.
It’s a myth that you have to be motivated to act. The reality is, you need to act and then the motivation comes. I need you to seriously think about your life and the things that are important to you that you keep putting off.
Lack of motivation is not the problem.
Most people have a lot of motivation, they get stuck out of fear of what happens if they actually pursued the thing they want to pursue.
The secret to having more opportunities and success in your life, is to act in the direction of those opportunities.
The more you embrace the fear behind the opportunity, the more things seem to fall into place.
Trust me on this one.
I love you.
