"You're either IN or you're OUT. There's no such thing as life in between." Pat Riley
Way too often our world is filled with way too many maybes. Maybe we will do this. Maybe we will do that. Maybe we will give it a shot; maybe we'll give it a go. Maybe we'll give it our very best. Then again, maybe we won't. Either way, it's OK.
Well no, it isn't.
As we maybe our way through life, we never really commit to much of anything at all. There's no real dedication on our part, no real commitment either. Oh sure, we want what we want - but we don't want to do what it takes to get there. So we just say maybe and leave it at that.
What has a lifetime of maybes ever done for us? Has our maybes moved us one step closer to fulfilling our dreams? Has our maybes moved us even one inch closer to achieving our goals? Come on, let's be honest here; if we somehow heaped all of the maybes we have ever uttered into one humongous pile, that would be one worthless pile of trash, wouldn't it?
Each and every time we said maybe, we didn't. So maybe, just maybe, we should stop saying maybe.
"Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person." Albert Einstein
Life is comprised of a series of make or break moments, where life defining decisions must be made. Moments where what we decide - and just as importantly - what we DO define what we are and what we will become. Right then, right there, right in the moment, we have to decide what we are going to do - and then do it.
When it comes to making things happen, there are only two choices. You either choose to make things happen - or you don't. That's right; you either do or you don't. It's your choice, your move, your life. It's really that simple. If you're going to do something, then for goodness sakes do it. Don't talk about doing it. Don't think about doing it. Just go do it - and get it done.
"Anyone can dabble, but once you've made that commitment, your blood has that particular thing in it, and it's very hard for people to stop you." Bill Cosby
Success has never been and never will be an either/or proposition. Winning in life is not good intentions. It's not about hoping or planning to do something. No maybe, no possibly, no perhaps. Either you get out there and passionately pursue the life you desire - or you don't. Case closed.
So what's it going to be?
Maybe you should stop using the word maybe. Oops, did I just say maybe? Check that; you should STOP using the word maybe altogether. And start using phrases that define dedication and commitment. By saying you will definitely, absolutely, positively do something, you get the ball rolling in the right direction.
But don't just say it, get busy making it happen. Commit yourself to getting it done.
"Strength is a matter of the made-up mind." John Beecher
Are you ready to turn your life around? Are you ready to take charge of where you're going and how you're going to get there? You bet you are! Then maybe has no place in your life. Determine what you want to accomplish, all of the great things you want to be, see and do, then go get them with every ounce of energy in your body.
Don't leave the back door open to failure and defeat by saying maybe, slam that door and nail it shut. Get rid of the maybes by committing your life to excellence in everything you say, think and do.
If there's something you need to do, then do it. If there's some goal you'd love to attain, go get it. Stop saying maybe - and start making your life all it could be and more. Whatever you want out of life, whatever you want to achieve, whatever you have dreamed of having and being can be yours when you finally toss your maybes aside once and for all.
No if, ands or maybes about it.
The Bottom Line: Forget the maybes. Go live the life you deserve.
