Start Right Now

It’s Time to Stop Making Excuses and Start Living

Why is it so important to start today?

Why can’t things wait until tomorrow, or maybe the day after that? Or how about next week, or when we have the money, resources, time, blah, blah, blah! It’s important to start today because putting things off just means that you’re feeding the cycle of making excuses. You can’t actively take part in your life while passively waiting for things to happen for you. Waiting doesn’t accomplish anything, at least not when you’re looking to change your life. Plus, why would you want to waste even another moment if you can get started on your new and improved life today?

Maybe you’re going to argue that your life doesn’t need improvement. But I know very few people who wouldn’t welcome improvements in their life. I generally hear that people don’t need any improvement when they’re not willing to do the work. Personally, I believe that there’s always room for growth, no matter how well you are doing. Complacency and stagnation are the death of personal advancement. You only have this life to live, so you might as well get the best out of it.

One of the best ways to get the ball rolling is by starting with a list of the things you want! Maybe you always wanted to take an art class? Maybe you wanted to travel to a specific place or learn another language. The sky’s the limit when it comes to your dreams. If you’re planning on really improving your life because you’re feeling defeated, depressed or miserable, you may want to start with things that would have an immediate impact on your self-esteem. Set reasonable goals: for example, losing five pounds within a month, signing up with a gym, looking for a new job, etc. Anything that allows you to actively take a step further towards the person you want to be, while making you feel good about the fact that you’re taking action, is a worthwhile activity to engage in. If you don’t have the money for a gym, make time for walks. Where there’s a will, there’s always a way!

Don’t quit five minutes before the Miracle happens to bring joy into your life!

Good things don’t come to those who wait. Good things come to those who take action. You’re the master of your own destiny, so grab the opportunity by the horns, design your future, and start creating!

Do it now!
