Why A Single Day Is Enough To Change Your Life

Mario Andretti said, “If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.” So what are you waiting for? Are you waiting for the right time to start? If you are waiting for the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone, stop waiting. The train is living your station. You must do whatever it takes to catch your train. Run!

Stop getting ready. Paul Klee said, “A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.” Is it really possible? Of course, it is possible. It can be done. But you must start. And you must start today. Don’t fear. Don’t doubt yourself. The most important thing is to believe in yourself. Stop waiting for the right time to make yourself bigger, smarter. Start now.

Stop waiting for the right time to go crazy. Because everything is changing. Success doesn’t come from waiting for the right time to change your life. It comes from getting your hands really dirty. It comes from actually doing the work.

You must do the work. You must face your reality. You must embrace change. You must do what you are afraid of doing. You must be comfortable taking risks. There is no perfect time to make mistakes. Start today. You can start today by changing how you do your things, how you make your decisions. Because you cannot change your life without changing your thoughts.

And if you really want to change yourself, you must stop thinking about the past. Remember that you are no longer living in the past. You are living in the moment. This moment needs you. If you are not present with yourself, how can you change your life?

How To Build Your Life Around Self-Confidence

You can’t build your life around fear. Fear is real, but do not let it stop you from doing what you want to do. Nothing is perfect. Do not wait to be perfect before you start something. You are not doing what you are supposed to be doing because you don’t want to fail. If you want to make it in life, you can’t avoid failure. If you are not failing, you are not trying hard enough. If you are not crying in your bedroom, you are not making enough mistakes. Dan Rockwell writes, “Imperfect progress today is better than perfect progress tomorrow.” Yes, it is better to make a mistake than to get stuck in a rut. To pursue your goals, don’t fear mistakes, fear not making enough. Build your success around making mistakes, not around fear. In fact, don’t wait for things to happen to you. Instead, get out of your comfort zone to make things happen for you. Yes, it can happen. You have done it before. Don’t doubt yourself. Believe in yourself. Build your life around self-love, self-confidence, not self-doubt. With self-confidence, you can really accomplish a lot of things in your life. Remember that you are in charge of your life. You can do whatever you say you can do. You can’t do whatever you say you cannot do. You can accomplish a lot in your life if you can just focus on the process, not on the results. Because learning is about the process, not about the results.
