What will it be?

“Being or becoming?”

You are remarkable, but you can do better.  It’s in your DNA.  But will you?

Many are content with just being rather than becoming. Staying stationary, sticking to where they are rather than becoming who they truly can be.  That’s because becoming means taking risks, getting out of the comfort zone, confronting the reality of the need to grow, and then acting on that reality.

Those who choose to just be are those who choose – usually unwittingly – to fall behind.  For you, what will it be – being or becoming?

So much for labels…

“Optimism, pessimism, f**k that; we’re going to make it happen.” – Elon Musk

If you want something, if you want it to happen, you have to do something to make it happen.  You have to do something to make it happen no matter how it’s labeled, no matter how perceived and defined.

Remember when Columbus and his crew fell off the end of our planet while sailing for the new world?  So much for labels and spin.

Feed the intensity of your desire, of your passion, of your need to get what you want. Then get out there and just do it.  You can deal with the labels later.

Never forget, you are in charge

“You can either have life you desire or you can have excuses.”  – Jen Sincero

You’re in charge.  Never forget that you are in charge.

You choose to act on your desires, or make excuses.  You choose to take the risk, raise the stakes, or settle for less.  You choose to become accountable or find others to blame.

What will it be?  The life you desire, or excuses?

It starts today

“How am I going to live today to create the tomorrow I’ve committed to?”  – Tony Robbins

How you live this day is how you live your  life.  If you’re not happy with how things are turning out today – if you want a better tomorrow – something has to change.  Something has to change with you, starting now.

What will you do differently today to start that cascade of change in your life?  What will you do differently today to create your new tomorrow?

No squatters allowed

“Who lives in your head?”

Make your mind single occupancy.  No squatters allowed.

Get focused, no distractions.  In your journey to your dreams, refuse to allow the diversion and confusion created by the agendas of others – regardless of intent.

Know that you have a choice.  Others can live in your heart, just not in your head.

The world owes you nothing

“It’s not about opportunities you need to be given, it’s about opportunities you need to take.”

The world owes you nothing.  Get it out of your head that the universe possesses some special scorecard defining what you so richly deserve.

You must create your own scorecard, and it’s not a measurement of what you deserve,  It’s a measurement of the person you’re becoming, the value you’re giving, and the goals you want to achieve.  It’s a measurement of your preparation, your receptivity to possibility, your willingness to persist.  It’s a measurement of your readiness to act when opportunities shows up – and they will.

Take charge of your life.  Opportunities await.

Push and probe

“The journey doesn’t end here.”

There is no final destination, no ending point, in the life well-lived.  Extraordinary people push beyond today’s achievements, probe what’s ahead, and dare to step into their new tomorrow.

Those who focus on excellence reject reliance on past achievements.  They push boundaries and recalibrate their horizon. They dare to see new vistas unfolding. They know that the failure to move forward means falling behind.

The ancestor to action

“The ancestor to every action is thought.” - Wayne Dyer

Focus on what you don’t like, what you don’t want in your life, and watch it grow.   Focus on what you want, and it will grow too.

You act on what you think about.  Problems start in you; solutions do too.

There is no substitute

“One does it, and the other talks about how it’s done, and the talk about how it’s done never seems to match how one does it.”  - Robert Pirsig, from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Most people stand in sight of of incredible dreams and life changing possibility, yet fail to act.  They would rather hear the histories  from those who reached their dreams than endure the hardships of their own journey.

Get inspired, but then act.  Act because the journey, because achieving your goals, despite hardships, far exceeds the story of the dream.  There is no substitute.

If not now, then when?

“Now isn’t the perfect time.”

Nor was yesterday, and tomorrow’s not looking so good either.  Sound familiar?   Many of us are quite skilled at perpetuating this delusion.

So when?  When will you start?  When will you make your move?  The perfect time may have been the day before yesterday, or maybe last month – but you hesitated, you hedged, you held back.  And you missed out.

Sooner than later you must choose.  Will you keep making excuses or will you make your move?   If you keep making excuses, your whole life will eventually pass by, including your dreams.

If not now, then when?
