Why do we sometimes put our lives on layaway? You know what Im talking about here, dont you? Far too often we put our hopes, dreams and aspirations "on hold" while we wait for the perfect time or perfect place to get the ball rolling. Why are we so willing to wait on this or that happening before we start happening ourselves? Instead of making the most of every moment, we make excuses and put things off instead. Unknowingly, we put our lives on layaway.
The most successful in any field have long since learned that success just does not work in this fashion. A winner knows that waiting, delaying or putting off are nice ways of saying that you are stopping for the time being. And stopping wont get you where you truly want to go, will it?
Waiting around just does not make any sense whatsoever to winners. Winners are never willing to wait on anything or anyone because they know they have what it takes to do it themselves right now. These self assured winners ignore the stop signs of life. They are always ready and raring to go, holding nothing back or in reserve as they strive to make today the best day of their lives.
Isnt it high time that you have some fun and start experiencing all of the unbridled excitement life has to offer? Isnt it high time that you commit to living each day with all of the passion and purpose you can muster? Isnt it high time that you get up, get going and then keep going reaching higher, pushing harder while propelling yourself toward your date with destiny?
Once you stop making excuses and start making history, you will discover that life is just too much fun to ever put it on layaway again.
