"The most valuable of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it has to be done, whether you like it or not." Aldous Huxley
Life shouldn't be an either-or proposition. We either will - or we won't. We either do - or we don't. When it comes to pursuing the lives we desire, it's really a cut and dried proposition.
Yet many of us straddle the fence.
We're reluctant to make decisions when they need to be made. We hesitate when it's time to make a move. Forever indecisive and uncertain, we're never quite sure about what we should do next. So when it's time to do something, we typically do nothing.
And nothing gets done.
"People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be - whether they will admit that or not." Earl Nightingale
If you're ever going to get anywhere worth going, you need to become whether proof. That means making decisions when they need to be made. And doing what needs to be done when it needs doing. Not when you get around to it, not when you feel like it. There can be no hemming and hawing; no dilly dallying around.
You just need to make a decision. And then do it.
No flaking, shaking or excuse making. No waffling, wavering or wilting under pressure. When it's time to go, you've got to go - and go make something happen.
Or nothing will ever change.
"Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you ready or not, to put this plan into action." Napoleon Hill
How many times have you wished you would have done something - but didnt? Maybe something exciting, maybe something different; maybe even something you have always dreamed of doing. You wanted to do it; maybe even needed to do it. But you just couldn't push yourself over the edge. You couldn't take the plunge.
And you stayed put.
Perhaps you were worried about messing things up. Or you were nervous about trying something different. Maybe you were simply scared stiff. For those reasons or possibly a thousand more, you couldn't pull the trigger. You couldn't roll the dice. You didn't make it happen.
Instead of following your heart, you played the 'whether' game. You wondered whether you should venture out. You wondered whether you should take a chance. You wondered whether you should give it a whirl. And you wondered yourself right out of another magical moment.
"Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right." Henry Ford
How many more missed opportunities are going to fall by the wayside because you won't make a decision? Or won't make a move? Are you really willing to allow the life you've dreamed about to needlessly skip through your fingertips?
If you're ever going to get where you want to go, you've got to become whether proof. You need to stop worrying about whether you have what it takes. Stop agonizing over whether you're doing the right thing. Stop losing sleep about whether you're making the proper decisions. And get going!
You need to do what needs to be done - when it needs doing. You need to make decisions when they need to be made. When it's time to put up or shut up, you've got to jump in with both feet and go make something special, something fantastic, something absolutely incredible happen.
That special, fantastic, incredible something you've always wanted to do.
The Bottom Line: Whether you will or you won't depends on you - and you alone.
