As we approach the most spiritual time of year, I find more and more of my thoughts are focused on what my future will bring. But instead of drafting a list of goals, my mind seems to settle into a different place—
What if I could give myself a gift that instantly gives me what I want?
What if I don’t have to chase my dreams and start living them instead?
What if there was nothing in my way – ever?
While that way of thinking may seem out of touch today, it’s not. It happens daily for millions of people worldwide and can happen to you, too.
Here’s a simple truth—
Everything changes instantly and, very likely, forever when you decide.
If you hate your job and decide to quit, everything changes.
Everything changes instantly if you decide you need space for yourself, turn your phone off, and walk in the woods.
If you say “Yes” to yourself and “No” to others more often, you experience change.
I could go on forever, but I don’t need to. If you’ve been alive for any time, you understand that you’re only stuck until you decide not to be stuck. Once you make that decision, you’re moving again. That’s life.
Is it easy? Are there limitations? Are there consequences?
Maybe, but many of them are good!
The point is that any directional change in your life is possible when you decide to recalculate your path.
So this year, why not give yourself the gift of considering the possibility that the only thing standing in your way is you? I bet that you already know that. If that’s the case, why not get out of your way and do what you say you want to do?
Yes, I know you may not know what to do.
Yes, I know you may not know how to do it.
Yes, I know you may wonder how your life will be.
All of that is true.
But you know that you want something different?
Do you know what’s not working?
Do you know what you don’t want in your life?
That should be all the motivation you need to go for your dreams.
