“When people say they’re skeptical, or pessimistic, I get it. But let’s face it, you’re gutless. It takes no guts to be a skeptic. It takes no guts to try nothing and say it’s not gonna work. It takes guts to put your ass on the line and believe something’s possible. It takes guts to pursue an answer. It takes guts to fail and step back up and keep pushing”Tony Robbins
Your mind is designed in such a way to prevent you from getting hurt. In nature, this is a genius mechanism that ensures your survival. But in the our society, we have developed the “someday” mechanism.
Someday we’ll be good enough or brave enough or smart enough or have the time to do this or that.
Someday we’ll become what we’ve always wanted to be.
Someday we’ll write our book or start our business.
And most people wait their entire lives for this someday, which never comes.
Because “someday” doesn’t exist. Like unicorns. Or Santa Claus.
All you have is today.
All you have is the ability to ignore the feeling that assuming certain changes is going to ruin your life.
Realize this deeply and you’ll be free to do anything you want. Don’t, and you’ll spend your whole life making excuses for why you have to settle for less than what you really want.
