Do you play the waiting game? In other words, do you procrastinate on your plans to the point of paralysis? It is one thing to be pragmatic about a given strategy or initiative; but once the assessment is complete, it is time to move onto the next step. Too often, people get caught up in the waiting game in the hopes that “something good is going to happen”, but never see the thought through fruition. They simply think that by doing nothing to progress their lives, that fate will somehow jump up to the plate and drop the golden goose egg in their laps. This is not how success works. In fact, the mindset of “hoping” for something good to happen might be a good start, but it is in no way a means to an end. If you choose to deliberate too long on making the next move toward your success, you become too complacent and instead of progressing, you start to stagnate in the same place.
When life gets dull or dire, you may think that there is no end in sight. You may even believe that no matter what you do, it will not help you move forward to get out of your slump. Truth is if you keep believing that, you are right. Henry Ford once said, “You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.” That is the key phrase, “going to do”. Life is more about the actual “doing” than it is the “going to do’s”. He also said, “It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.” Are you wasting your talent and time? The act of taking your ideas and transforming them into reality is what moves you; and for what life becomes more meaningful. The realization of turning dreams into real success is the cornerstone to gaining significant purpose in life.
If you are sitting here right now wondering why you have put off plans for so long, then it is now time to make your move. You cannot depend on empty promises you have made to yourself. Only you have the gift to awaken your creative talents to achieve goals you want in life. Stop postponing your success because no one else can or will make it happen for you. Ultimately, it is entirely up to you whether or not you apply your ideas and turn those ideas into tangible fortune. Ask yourself: What is it that I really want in life? Yes, it is an open-ended question. For many of you, it will be good health, for others it may be a career move or perhaps a blanket statement like, “I want to be wealthy.” It is a fundamental certainty that many millionaires acquired their riches through strong motivation and genuine desire to achieve. Hope may have played a role in the planning stages, but it was the action upon which they based their strategy that got the ball rolling. If you want to gain wealth, achieve overall wellbeing, and lead a joy-filled life, then you must choose to do what it takes to get the ball rolling in the direction you want it to go. From today forward, I want you to keep the mindset that all things are possible when you act upon the thing it is you want in your life. Don’t wait for success to fall in your lap, your odds are better getting struck by lightning.
