Why do we settle for “Almost?”
“Almost” always falls short.
When you get that spark of motivation, follow through with it.
“Almost” never reaches your goals.
If you never take action and follow through, your goals will always just be ink on paper.
“Almost” never reaches your potential.
You have unlimited potential, so why not push yourself to explore how far you can go?
“Almost” never rewards you.
Not just monetarily, but personal satisfaction is not rewarded when you never do anything.
“Almost” is always an excuse.
You say you “almost” did something. Are you bragging or complaining? Really, it’s just an excuse for not reaching your goals and potential.
If you’re anything like me, hopefully not, you have to take a good look at yourself and figure out what you want. Do not spend too much time on it, once you have a small spark of inspiration and motivation, TAKE ACTION.
DO NOT SETTLE FOR “ALMOST”
People say they “almost” did something, and complain they never did it. They complain they never took the chance. They regret not taking a risk and going for “it.” Whatever “it” is for them.
We get stuck in that “thinking” mode, and never get ourselves to the “doing” mode. We say we’ll wait to do something once certain things are in place. We wait, and wait, and continue to put things off and then one day we say we “almost” did that one thing.
We get stuck in that “thinking” mode, and never get ourselves to the “doing” mode. We say we’ll wait to do something once certain things are in place. We wait, and wait, and continue to put things off and then one day we say we “almost” did that one thing that could have brought so much joy to our lives.
If you have a passion for public speaking, and you think waiting for the right moment is going to get you there, you’re wrong. Take action today. Get your smart phone out and start filming yourself. Share what you have to say to people, TODAY!
Do not wait to get the fancy equipment, and the right software, the lighting equipment, the microphones. Just go do something today. Two things will happen when you do this.
One: You’ll start using your passion now, rather than waiting. You’ll feel so good about doing what you’re passionate about
Two: Once you can afford the quality equipment, you’ll realize that it doesn’t matter. The equipment, technology, or anything else doesn’t make your content that much better. The information you deliver matters.
TIME TO DO
You need to STOP THINKING, and START DOING. If you’re still thinking about doing something that you’re passionate about, take action. Do not look back and say “I almost did that!” Take risks, get out of your comfort zone. You will never know what you’re capable of if you don’t.
DO NOT QUIT BEFORE YOU GET STARTED. THEN WHEN YOU GET STARTED, DO NOT QUIT.
Life is this big adventure, and we can do whatever we want with it. Sometimes we limit our thinking because of our environment. That’s no excuse to not try though. Take responsibility and make your environment better. Get around people who push you forward, not hold you back. Be mindful of the quality of the information you consume, because that will be the quality you put out.
You also need to block out self doubt. If you knew you couldn’t fail, would you go all in? Would you at least try? Understand that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to, and you will.
What I’m trying to get across is,
⚓️Do not settle for “Almost.” Lift the anchors that are holding you down, and set sail for undiscovered possibilities.
