There has never been a better time than right now for you to be your best. Thats right, there has never been a better time than right now for you to do your best. As a matter of fact, there has never been a better time to do whatever it is you have always wanted to do
than right now.
So how about it? Are you doing the things you have always wanted to do
right now? Are you living the life you have always dreamed about living
right now? Are you putting your best to the test
right now? If not, then right now is the right time to get started. In order to get where you want to go, you must first begin. Yet the very act of getting started seems to be the most common sticking point, or should I more accurately say stopping point, that people encounter.
How many people have you known who truly wanted to do something, needed to do something, really intended to do something, but for one reason or another never did it? Did these well intentioned souls fail to get started because they didn't really want to do it? No, they wanted to do it. In fact, they really wanted to do it, but they never did. Why? There is one reason and one reason only, they just couldn't get started. If there is one obstacle that stops people cold in their tracks, it is the act of starting something. Far too many Americans indefinitely postpone and put off getting started because they are afraid that they may fail at some point in the process. Instead of getting started, they conjure up and concoct in their minds an assortment of reasons for not getting off their rumps and getting the job done.
How about you? How many times have you wanted to get the ball rolling, but didn't? Isn't it truly amazing how people can come up with hundreds and hundreds of excuses for not getting started, yet they can never come up with even one good reason. Not even one! How many fun and exciting projects have you been putting off for years? How many remarkable life adventures have you been wanting to live but have never got around to making them a reality in your life? Isn't it about time you made all of your dreams come true? No doubt about it, there has never been a better time to get started than .. right now!
