"Live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now."
DO IT NOW! Three simple words that tell us to do whatever we need to do and do it right this moment. Not sooner or later, not whenever it's convenient or whenever we get around to it; but do it right where we are right now.
Do it now - three words, three syllables, seven letters; simple, straight-forward, uncomplicated words that are in reality anything but. These three powerful, emphatic, action-oriented words can dramatically change our lives if given half a chance. Yet far too many of us never give them that opportunity.
"I live now."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
These three little words strike fear in some folks, scaring them half to death. There will always be some people who get busy and get things done every day, yet there are even more who constantly choose to lay back or drag their feet, perpetually postponing virtually every decision they make or don't make in life. They don't want to do it - and they certainly don't want to do it right now.
In fact, there are some people who have actually made putting things off a virtual art form. These professional procrastinators are renowned for deferring, dawdling and dilly-dallying their way through life, never actually doing much of anything and not surprisingly, not accomplishing much of anything either. These slackers are perfectly content to sit back and watch others do the heavy lifting, putting just about everything and everybody on the back burner. How about you?
"Let the credit card companies market as they will, the only thing that's priceless is now."
Caleb Baylor Hive
Let's face it, all of us have things we do not like to do. And we all face decisions we would prefer we didnt have to make. But in order to get where we want to go, we need to do what we need to do, when it needs to be done, regardless of whether we feel like doing them or not. That's what the winners do day after day, while life's lazybones and freeloaders run for cover.
If we are ever going to make our move and make something happen, can there be a better time or better place than right where we are right now? Waiting, hesitating and procrastinating just doesn't make any sense. Delaying here and postponing there only lands us further behind the proverbial eight ball - and no closer to making our dreams come true.
"Do it now. Do it today. Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating."
Look, I know some people are never going to change. These individuals will continue to procrastinate for the rest of their lives. And they'll needlessly watch the dreams they could have, should have and wished they would have lived slowly drift further and further away. It could have been different; in fact, it should have been different if they would have only chosen to do it now.
How about you? Better yet, how about now? Right here, right where you are right now is the perfect place to get started living the life you deserve and desire. Instead of saying what if, why not start saying 'what now'?
Ask yourself, "What can I do right now to make my life richer, happier and more rewarding? What can I do right now to begin living the life I have always dreamed of living?" Then listen to the answers and more importantly, get busy doing them.
The future you've always dreamed of living is laid out right before you, ready when you are; right here and right now.
The Bottom Line: There are really only two times you can make something happen: now or never. And now sounds a whole lot better, wouldn't you agree?
