Your Life Is A Reflection Of Many Choices You Have Made

Steve Maraboli writes, “Your life is a reflection of many choices you have made at the innumerable amount of choice-points you’ve crossed.” Life is about choices. Don’t worry about the bad choices you have made in the past. You can’t change the past, but you can change your future. You can change your future by paying attention to what you are doing right now. What you are doing right now is shaping your future.

You can change your life today. Don’t let your bad choices hold you back. Don’t let your past mistakes hold you back. If you want to change your life, you must change yourself. You can change your life by taking advantage of the opportunities around you. “Don’t sleepwalk through your life”. If you delay yourself, the opportunity will not be there for you. If you want to catch it, you must wake up. You must not sleepwalk through life.

Once you have made up your mind to pursue something, don’t think too much about it. Because if you spend your entire life thinking about it, you will cripple yourself. Once you know what you want for yourself, for your life, for your family, then make your decision and then do it. Don’t wait. Don’t wait for the perfect time to do something. There is no such thing as a perfect time. If you want to do something, if you really mean it, do it today.

If you want to get something done in your life, you have got to do it yourself. You have got to follow your path. You have got to do your own thing. Allen Ginsberg said, “Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” If you wait for someone else to do it for you, you are going to wait forever. Make up your mind for yourself. And you will get what you want.

If You Want To Get Things Done, Stop Waiting For The Right Time

If you want to get things done, if you want to start something new, or you want to renew your old things, there is no perfect time to do it. The right time to do anything is when you decide to do it. And the right time to decide is right now, right where you are.

When it comes to your dreams, your goals, your future, there is no perfect time to make it better. Now is your perfect time to make things happen. Stop waiting. The right time will never come. Because it is not there. Don’t wait for what is not there. Start where you are. Start with what you have.

You are destined to succeed. So stop waiting for the right time. Waiting for the right time is another way of telling yourself, “I am not doing it.” According to Brian Tracy, “If you wait for things to be just right, you will wait forever.” Don’t wait forever! It will not help you. It will hurts you.

People wait for things to be just right because they are scared to start. They don’t want to fail. They don’t want people to criticize them. They love where they are. They are still thinking about it. They think they don’t have the right education to start.

But if you can just put yourself together, there is nothing you cannot do. Put yourself together. Put your thoughts together. You can do anything. But you have to be willing and ready to confront your inner critic, the guy telling you what you cannot do. Don’t worry about it. Focus on where you are going, and you will get there.
