Today is the Day
I know, change is difficult but it is possible. I keep thinking that I will do something tomorrow and then tomorrow comes and I can't remember what it was I said that I was going to do, so I end up doing something else. Then at the end of the day I realize what I was suppose to be doing. So then one day becomes two just like that. Does anyone else know what that feels like?
So what do you do when you know what to do and you know how to do but you are afraid to do? How does a person with serious anxiety issues convince themselves that what they want is truly attainable?
OK so you hear the usual answers: write it down and make it plain, pray and/or meditate on it, write it down and put it somewhere you can see it everyday, etc... So now that you have done all of that, now what? The problem is not in the lack of planning, the problem is in execution.
Today is the day to execute. You have studied for this exam long enough. You know the answers. Today is the day to execute. This is the day that you trust yourself. Today is the day to execute. This is the day to set aside all your fears, doubts and insecurities. Today is the day to execute. This is the day that you begin to live the 'dash' in your life.
So do whatever you have to do to get yourself 'fired up and ready to go'. Let's make it your business to make today the day that you do or at least get started on doing that thing that you have always wanted to do. This is the day that you plan that fabulous getaway for you and your girlfriends; that you call the school and find out about the admissions process; that you take a serious look at your credit report and see what it is going to take to buy that house; that you call your insurance provider to see how many sessions you and your spouse can have because you know your marriage depends on it; that you sit down and write the first line in your book; that you plan that second honeymoon you have dreamed about for years.
Whatever your dash is, it is up to you to make it happen. So let's make Today the Day.
