Don't Postpone Your Life
I think we can all agree that we want to live a meaningful life full of rich moments, priceless experiences, and deep relationships. We all deserve it, and we’re all capable of it, but many of us aren’t living that right now. Why do you think that is?
We’re waiting. Waiting for the right time or for things to be in the right place. Waiting until it makes sense to do it or we feel more prepared. One of my favorite lines in Dr. Seuss’ book “Oh the places you’ll go” is “Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting.”
But instead of thinking of it as waiting, what if you thought about your hesitation as postponing? When you postpone that means there are plans in place and they need to be delayed. Well let me tell you this... There are already plans for your life. There are plans for a better future. Every time you delay what your life is calling you to do, you’re actually postponing yourself on your own path.
Of course, be responsible with the decisions you make. But also be aggressive. Play to win and take life on instead of letting it happen to you. The last thing you want is to look back 6 months, a year, 5 years, or 10 years from now and find yourself in the same place with the same things holding you back. In these situations you’ll find you’re much more capable than you thought you were, that you belonged there all along and you didn’t give yourself the chance to see it.
If you’re feeling motivated to take yourself seriously, and really reflect on how this might be affecting you, I challenge you to ask yourself this question: What have you been postponing in your life for too long? Is it taking a chance on yourself? Having that hard conversation? Making that big move on your heart? Answer it for yourself and open up your next frontier of possibility
