In your life right now, there’s a challenge you’re avoiding.
Actually, there’s probably a lot of challenges you’re avoiding.
Day-to-day life can feel exhausting. Work, obligations, home duties, friends, relationships, family, hobbies, kids… The list of things to do each day is a mile long.
However, for every single person who has so much to do, there was someone out there who overcame the daily grind and still pursued their dreams.
Being busy has become a band-aid term for not pursuing dreams.
It’s a constant excuse that makes us feel validated in our whining. We get to avoid the pain of realizing we’re not putting enough effort in.
Of course, there are a million difficult things that can get in the way of what you want.
Cancer, death, paralyzing fears, car accidents, natural disasters…
But the truth is that things will always keep happening. There is never a time of perfect circumstances or where the “time is right”.
Theodore Roosevelt lost his mother and his wife on the same day, and he managed to overcome it. It doesn’t mean it was easy to get through. It means he looked the challenge in the face and took on the emotional pain, woke up every day, and kept putting one foot in front of the other.
There has to be a point where you start chasing your fears instead of running away from them.
There will always be a lot going on, but you need to decide what matters most to you and make time for it.
Sometimes the challenges are small, such as finally cleaning out your garage. Sometimes they’re big challenges, such as finally moving across the country.
Whatever it is, it’s time to tackle it on.
Make a plan of action and start today.
Your life is waiting.
