What Are You Waiting For?

What are you waiting for?

You, yes you. The one sitting there pondering the universe, your life and its relationship to it all, but doing nothing about it.

What are you waiting for?

Every day is a new day loaded with possibilities. Yet you set there, nose buried in a web page, thinking about how you would like your life to change, but doing nothing about it.

What are you waiting for?

You can be or do anything you set your mind to. It’s not a lot of Zen garbly-gook, it’s science, it’s real, and it’s proven. The only person that is stopping you from living your dream life is you.

So what exactly are you waiting for?

Do you think you aren’t smart enough?
Or not qualified enough?
Or not good enough?
Or you need to be thinner or prettier?
Or you don’t have enough money?

Those are all things we tell ourselves so that we can stay in our safe zone. You don’t grow or change or get your dreams accomplished by staying safe.

The most successful people in the world didn’t make their dreams happen from their safe zones. They stood up, took stock of what they wanted in life and made it happen.

So really, what are you waiting for?

Do you think you’re too old?
That your chance came and went, and you missed it?
Do you tell yourself that a new career isn’t for you?
That you can’t start over?

Well, I’m here to tell you that you can! Achieving your dreams doesn’t have an expiration date. There are no age limits in life. The only restrictions that apply are the ones you set for yourself.

Take that baggage and throw it out the window.

It doesn’t matter who you are, how smart you are or what you look like. You can be anything you want to be; you can achieve anything you want to achieve. Just give yourself permission to do it.

You need to realize that it’s not life holding you back, it’s YOU and allow yourself to spread your wings and start a new adventure. You are an amazing creature. Stop waiting and start doing!

This is your one chance, one life, this isn’t a dress rehearsal. So get out there and start living!

How do I start?

Visualize it! Make your dreams come to life in your mind. See it all. What you would like to be, what it would feel like, sound like, taste like. Make it as visually real in your mind as you can.

Did you know that the mind can’t tell the difference between what is real and what is make-believe? Make your visualizations so lifelike that it even feels real to you. Where the mind goes, the body will follow. Use visualization as a tool to start making your dreams come true!

Once you’ve done your visualization, your mind will start showing you the direction you need to go to make your dreams come true. This will allow you to start putting together a plan to make your dreams become a reality.

Start by taking baby steps, one by one, every single day towards your dreams. Don’t lay your head down on the pillow each night, until you have done something in the day to make your dreams closer to reality. Little steps add up, and your life will change when you start living your life, rather than let it live you.

And lastly, tell me,

WHOSE LIFE IS THIS?

YOURS!

So live it the way YOU WANT TO LIVE IT.

Your life is not going to change because you wish it would, you have to take action. This is your one shot, one life that’s all yours to get it right. You can sit on your butt and complain about how great everyone else has it, or you can go out there and make your life great!

So tell me, what are you waiting for?

    Thank you Jackie. Sometimes when things get bad we forget that we have the power to change it all up. This is your life, your canvas to create your masterpiece. Don’t let the world paint it for you, take control and make it something your soul will be proud of.

    I love this piece for so many reasons, the enthusiasm and encouragement to live your dreams NOW. It’s so easy to fall into old patterns, and forget realizing your dreams is possible.
    Thank you for your positive light in otherwise dark days.

    I love this passage…
    “Did you know that the mind can’t tell the difference between what is real and what is make-believe? Make your visualizations so lifelike that it even feels real to you. Where the mind goes, the body will follow. Use visualization as a tool to start making your dreams come true!”
