People like to think they have time. They don’t realize they don’t have time! Thinking that you have time means you are wasting time. Andy’s watch has two times on it. The little hand says “Now” and the big hand says “Right Now!” You’ve got to move and do. There’s so much to do and it is time to start.
It is the biggest misconception in the world that people use as an excuse for why things aren’t happening.
What are you doing RIGHT NOW? Are you sitting on the sidelines watching the game, or are you planning, thinking and taking action to get what you want in life?
I’m going to map out things you can do to act RIGHT NOW. Yes, acrostics can be silly, but if it helps you move and do things that others don’t then I’ll be silly all day long. Pay close attention to each letter in RIGHT NOW and use the principles to make yourself and others around you better.
Seeing it in your mind, writing it on paper and speaking your dreams out loud are important. It’s the easiest way to NUDGE yourself toward your goals. Be willing to take risks in life because that’s part of the journey. Doing things differently is what separates the ordinary from the extraordinary.
Make the decision today that you are going to take RISKS that will ultimately lead you to where you want to be in life. Don’t listen to people that are satisfied to watch the game. You be the one that gets in the game and runs as hard as you can toward the goal line.
Nothing great can ever be accomplished without taking a risk. Don’t waste time before you move. The time is now, and you can’t take it for granted.
Most people will tell you all day long that they are not afraid of working hard. I believe a person until they give me a reason not to. I measure people by their words and their actions. When those two don’t line up, then I know what kind of work ethic a person has. Generally, successful people wake up early, put in a lot of work and don’t mind staying up later than the average person. Oh, and one more thing … they do this over and over and over … it’s in their DNA and it’s part of their schedule and habits.
If you can get in the habit of doing the work, you will be successful. Too many people want to talk about what they can do and never get around to doing it. How about adopting a Get-To-Work mentality? Stop sitting around planning it out. Just do it!!!
Do you think people just get to the top of their profession because they say they want it? They get there because they put in the hours. They do it consistently, day after day. Here’s another secret: they keep doing it after they are successful. When you are committed to a goal, are willing to work for as long as it takes and you never give up, you dramatically increase your chances of being successful.
It’s important to have big dreams, but you have to take action RIGHT NOW before you can reach your ultimate goals and dreams.
You have the same 24 hours a day as the rest of the world. What you do with it is up to you. Don’t be afraid to shoot for your goals and dreams. Everything that you want in life can be yours if you are willing to continue working toward your ultimate goal.
Please make the most of your time. It is the most valuable asset, and you can control how it is spent.
