Taking a Leap

14 Dec

There are endless things we can do if we want to.  The world is full of possibilities.  Every goal is achievable and we can do anything or go anywhere.  Before we begin, we may think about how we’ll proceed.  We can take all the time we like to consider all the options and start making a plan.  We can ponder the road ahead, write out every detail that may happen, share our ideas with those around us and think long and hard about getting to the goal.  Planning, preparing, thinking and talking may help us get organized and ready, but we will go nowhere until we take the leap and actually begin. Lots of people say they want lots of things but do nothing to get them.  They may talk about the new career they’re going to build, or the places they’re going to go, or endless plans they’re going to fulfill.  We may hear them again and again saying what they’re going to do, but nothing ever changes.  They’re still in the same place doing the same things.  Dreams and plans are just ideas until we decide to do what is need to make them real. We’re in control of our lives and can do anything but we will never achieve the goals we most desire without action. Nothing is going to suddenly appear just because we want it.  No fairy godmother or genie in a bottle is ever going to show up.  Wishing and hoping will not change our lives.  We are powerful and strong and can accomplish anything we desire. We can stop talking about what we’re going to do, and start doing it.  Every destination is there, waiting for us.  The lives we desire most are reachable.  By taking the first step, and continuing forward with focus and determination, we will make our dreams come true.

There is rarely a perfect time to begin something new.  Our lives are busy and complex, and if we wait for the perfect moment when everything is settled and lined up, we may wait forever.  There is no way to read the future and we have no idea what tomorrow will bring.  The best time to start moving toward a goal is when we decide we want it.  Once we’ve identified exactly where we want to go and what we want to do, we can step forward and begin.  The whole world is there for us, and we are the only ones who can keep us from success.

Change can be intimidating.  Even when we know what we want, it can be hard to take the first step.  We don’t know what will happen, we don’t know if things will work out the way we planned, we don’t know who will step in front of us, we don’t know anything except we want the goal.  Success often hinges on how much we want it.  Complications always arise, the road may turn, we might get pulled off track for a time or face a big detour.  It doesn’t matter what gets in the way.  If we’re determined to win, we will win. Every goal is possible.  Every dream awaits. We can do anything, and we will succeed. 

Today if you’ve been thinking about something you want but haven’t yet taken the leap, be brave and take the first step forward.  There isn’t anything strong enough to hold you in place.  You know what you want, and you are powerful enough to get it.  Trust yourself.  Every success is already there for you.  Nothing is out of reach and you will win.
