Do You Really Want Success?
Have you ever noticed that many people are great at talking about how much they want to change but not so great at doing anything about it? They have opportunities to make a difference in their lives…but they just watch them sail on by.
Imagine you see a person sitting on the side of the road, soaking up the sun. They have a sign out that reads, “Florida or Bust!” and you happen to be driving to Florida. So you pull over and offer them a ride.
“No thank you.” They reply. And close their eyes.
“But your sign says, ‘Florida or Bust’ and I’m offering you a ride.” You say.
They slowly open their eyes, look at their sign, and say, “Why…so it does.” They scratch their head. “Yep. ‘Florida or Bust!’ Right there plain as day.” Then they shrug.
“So…do you want a ride?” You ask in exasperation.
“Nope. Not today.” Then they look at you and wink. “Come back tomorrow. I’ll be ready for that ride then. Just not today.” Then they turn away from you as if you were never there.
That’s what many people are like when it comes to doing anything that will change their lives. They want it. They prepare for it. But when push comes to shove, they sit down and shrug, “Not Today.”
I hope you’re not that type of person. I hope you’ll take action on your dreams and do what it takes to bring them to reality. I hope you believe in yourself and that you want change enough to actually do something about it!
It might happen slower than you want or faster than you want. There’s no way of knowing the timeframe up front. But I can promise this, unless you do something, you’ll just sit by the side of the road and watch your dreams pass by.
Realize your dreams or not. It’s your choice.
You Are The Master of Your Destiny!
