Now that you’ve talked about it, DO IT!

If you’re unhappy, change it! If you’re not willing to change it, then stop talking about it! Too much of our time is often spent talking about the things we want to accomplish, the places we want to travel or the job we want to walk away from so we can start our own, yet that’s all we’re doing….talking! Nobody seems to want to put any action behind their words, and I’m not sure if it’s due to fear, the lack of resources or pure laziness.

Furthermore, I’m not sure why people act so surprised when their dreams don’t come to fruition, when it’s all “they dream about”. However, you can’t expect to live out your dreams, unless you wake up! You’ve got to devise a plan, one that is realistic and prepares for both the good and bad, and NOT just the good. You’ve got to be prepared for failures, and understand that you might not acquire the success you envisioned on the first go-round (trust me, I’m taking my own advice)

The old adage, “If you want something bad enough, you’ll work to get it”, but do you really want it bad enough? Or, are you just content with dreaming and continuously talking about it? Whichever the case, it’s time you start talking the talk and walking the walk! Realize this, your goals aren’t going to “magically appear”, because you keep talking about them. You’ve got to get away from the idea that, just because you want it, means you’ll get it. The only way you’ll get it, is if you put in the work!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

What are you waiting for?

As one year ends and another begins, I look forward to new beginnings and more blessings, but dread hearing from the people who are “waiting for January 01”, to do x, y and z. I’ve never understood why people need the start of a new year to make a change, eliminate people/things or set and accomplish goals, when there is no time like NOW!

I’m not sure if they think that something magical is supposed to miraculously happen in the new year, that can’t take place in the year that their in or not, but I just wish people wouldn’t prolong their goals, dreams and lives even, because they are waiting to enter into a new year, that they might not be fortunate enough to “make it in”.

That’s not to say they won’t live to see the new year, but as the saying goes, “Why put off tomorrow the things you can do today”? As I’ve mentioned before, I’m the type of person who knows exactly what I want, and will stop at nothing until I get it. Besides, my impatience is not going to allow me to wait until the new year or the right moment to start pursuing the things I want.

I don’t believe in sitting on opportunities, because I feel as though I may get another chance at them later. Then too, the way my “luck” used to be set up, later may never come, so I have to act now! You’ll never do what you want to do, be who you want to be or accomplish what you set out to do, because you keep waiting on the right time…..when the only thing you’re doing is wasting it!

If you want to live your best life…….DO IT NOW!

If you want to pursue the career of your dreams…….DO IT NOW!

If you want to reach for the stars……….DO IT NOW!

Quit waiting on tomorrow, when there’s nothing on your calendar TODAY!

Until next time my Note takers!
