We all have goals.
Some are big, some are small.
Are you actively pursuing yours? Or simply waiting for them to happen?
Because when it comes to your dreams, no one is going to hand them to you.
That’s not how it works.
You have to go out and get them.
Waiting Doesn’t Get You Anywhere
Too often, I see people who have goals and dreams and they are just waiting for them to occur.
I ask them, “What are you doing to make them happen?”
Do any of these sound familiar?
“I waiting for my ship to come in.”
“I’ll start when I have more free time.”
“One day people will recognize my hard work.”
“I’ll do it when things get back to normal.”
“Some day my Prince will come.”
Waiting isn’t a strategy. It is an excuse.
Are you just waiting around for life to happen?
No One Is Going to Give It To You
You have to make your dream a reality.
No one is going to give it to you. Really. They aren’t.
Here are some of the things you need to do:
- You Have to Go Get It – Too many people think that if they just work hard, their dream will come to them. To the contrary, you have to go out and get your dream. It will not simply show up on your doorstep.
- You Have to Pay For It – Every goal, every dream, has a price. You have to be willing to pay in your time, effort, and discipline.
- You Must Earn It – Despite myths to the contrary, there are no shortcuts. No get rich quick schemes. You have to earn your dream.
- You Must Start It – You will never cross the finish line if you don’t cross the starting line. Hope is not a strategy. Action is. Start now.
- You Have to Do More – As the saying goes, “What got you here, won’t get you there.” This happens to many people in their job. They think that if they continue doing their job better, faster, harder… that they will get different results.
Go Get What You Want
So, if you know want, then go out and get it.
But, be willing to put in the hard work.
To pay the dues and make the sacrifices.
Stop waiting for life to “get back to normal” or to present a “better time.”
There is no better day than today.
What have you been “waiting” for?
