What Are You Really Waiting For

Things happen in life and they can happen when you least expect it. Yet too often we put off doing what we really want and continue to stay on the treadmill of day to day. We then get frustrated and disappointed that our circumstances are still the same and the grass is always greener over the fence.

We are busy being busy and never seem to be able to find the “time” to make those changes. One question I love to ask people is “if you could make it all happen and nothing could hold you back, what would an ideal day look like to you in a years time and then 5 years from then.” How would you be spending your day, where would you be and what would you be doing?

For all the complaining and frustration about whats holding them back, most people have trouble coming up with a dream, defining what they are actually been held back from achieving. It’s this simple exercise though that will help step you towards your goals and help create fulfilment along the way.

You see happiness is being content about who you are, what you have and where you are heading. When we don’t have that vision of where we are heading we get lost in the day to day and fed up with “life”.  So the key is to create goals for yourself, have that vision of an ideal day in a years time. Then set yourself a path you want to drive on to get there and start to create actions towards this.

So my question to you after you have defined what an ideal day would look like in a years time, is whats holding you back? Why are you waiting?

Life is short, don’t wait. We all have 24 hours in a day and how you prioritise that time is up to you.

 “For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you.”  – Tim Ferriss
