The problem today, it's that your parents told you that you could do anything you want. They were not lying and but they forgot to mention one thing, you got to put the work into it.
Have you ever said ill start tomorrow? Because it is already mid-day, because today you told yourself, tomorrow i will start my ''new life''. Because whatever excuses you created in your head, that evidence you create today to not start your dream, this is just you lying to you.
Nobody will come save you,
Nobody will come lift the weights for you,
Nobody will build your company,
Nobody will go to therapy and face your traumas for you,
There is no one who will do the job FOR YOU.
Start today, because tomorrow may not happen, because if you start today, you will be one day closer to your goal. Because there is no perfect day, if you wait for this perfect day you will wait FOREVER. You want to lose weight, start exercising and eat better NOW. You want to have your business run like those big multi-million ones, start the work now. You want to start to feel better because you developed an injury related to your employment, start putting the effort today.
The day, I got up and said to myself, I will not be defined by my diagnosis, is the first day, I started to be better. It is also the first day, I stopped looking/creating excuses.
I didnt wait for motivation, I didnt wait for the right time, I didnt wait for the new day to show up. I had enough of feeling like shit, I had enough to be sitting in my traumas. I was sick of suffering.
I stopped playing video games, stopped using alcohol as an exit, stopped binging Netflix and I gave myself the time I deserve.
Did it get fix overnight? NO
Was I able to return to work the day after? NO
Was I able to verbalize properly what the hell was going in my head and heart? NO
But every D-A-M-N day I got closer.
You have people who start doing those body builder competition in their 40s and still win. You have people who start acting in their 50s and change the acting's world, because they bring their all to it. There are people who come back from hell because they finally said, I can forgive myself.
All those person have something in common, they started by quitting the excuses, and decided to go ALL IN.
You have to go all in to make those dreams REALITY.
So stop whining and start TODAY.
