Stop whining about XYZ, and DO something about XYZ😉
You get a LOT more accomplished when you put your feet to the ground and make moves instead of sitting on your ass bemoaning all the stuff that is wrong with the world (and to be fair, there is a lot wrong in this current landscape, at least where I am from – the USA – but that just means we need MORE action and less griping!
Your dreams and desires should never die – ever.
Regardless of your age.
Regardless of your past.
Regardless of your current circumstances.
There is still time…
There ALWAYS is. As long as you’re here, there’s still time!
So stop thinking about it and start action towards it!
Why are people so willing to spend hours dreaming and wishing, and spend their time and energy cutting down others who are DOING… instead of using that time and energy to DO?
I’ve never understood it, perhaps because I’m not a dreamer myself, I’m a doer; I’m action oriented and more than willing to put in hard work (as long as there is a payoff – no hamster wheels for me!) in order to achieve what I want to achieve.
Dreaming is nice, but without doing, you aren’t getting very far!
Deep thoughts this gorgeous Wednesday morning 😉
I mean, did you really think I was leaving the store without this shirt?!
Of. Course. Not.
You know, I often hear the refrain “but it’s easy for you”, and I would like to respectfully disagree – it is never easy for me.
You think waking up at the hour that I do is easy? It definitely isn’t, especially when I have a snugglebug dog snuggled up to/on me… it is not easy to peel myself from that and workout, trust and believe that!
But the other alternative is to wish, hope and pray for strength and wellness… and that’s not me – I am action-oriented. I need to be doing, not dreaming.
It is not easy, but it is necessary, and it does get a little bit easier once you get into the habit, I will admit that much.
But please don’t assume this is easy for me – I battle as much as anyone else, I just do what it takes to WIN said battles (most of the time 😉)
EFF YEAH FRIDAY!
This… is a B E A U T I F U L sight.
I owed the most in personal credit card debt, to this company. I owed them 4 figures, 6 if you add a decimal. And at some times, it felt like I owed them my life, and I would owe them forever…
I owed, and owed, and owed. So I paid, and paid, and paid. And then paid it off last year, for the FIRST time…
Then I shopped… some unforeseen situations arose… and we took a vacation, and I found myself having a balance again. It FELT like I blinked and it was back to 4 figures…
And I said nope, not anymore. And I set a goal to pay my 4 figure debt down AGAIN, and finally be free from the financial chains that bound me to this company.
And in the 10+ years I have had a card with them, this is the first time I have had a zero balance long enough for my statement to reflect that. And oh… those ZEROES. I chased those babies. I worked my tush off for them. I even made sacrifices, instead staying STEADFAST in my quest to pay OFF my credit card debt, ALL of it. My supplemental/residual income made it so I could do JUST that.
And I did. And there is really nothing like that feeling. They get bupkis from me this month.
That… is a feeling that cannot be classified as anything less than fucking amazing.
One word, 3 letters – W H Y?
For the freedoms – time, money, choice… all of them.
For the feel-good feelings of knowing I helped people.
For the friendships, team-building, bonds, and connections.
For the empowerment.
For the ability to live my life by design.
For me. For my family.
For my own health.
Some people dream it, some people do it. I have always been a dreamer, but fortunately, I am also a doer!
No, it’s not always easy (because nothing worth having is, as we all know), and yes, sometimes I do let doubt creep in — and then I promptly kick that out, because there is no room for doubt – none!
And no, it’s not for everyone — you have to be willing to work hard and step by step instead of expecting it to materialize overnight… but YES, it’s WORTH IT.
If you’d like to take control and design your life, let’s chat – you CAN do this, and I CAN help you!
