“When xxx happens, then I will be on my way to (insert goal here).” My first memory of believing this goes way back to when I was 5 years old. I just knew that as soon as I turned 6, I’d have all the answers.
You know how that went…
At the time, I didn’t learn from my misbelief. I lived a big chunk my life waiting for that perfect moment when the stars aligned and fortune smiled at me. You can guess where all that waiting lead–nowhere.
So much time, squandered on hope that events completely out of my control fell into place just for me.
I know I’m not alone here. Admit it, you’ve done the same thing.
This saying is a great reminder that I can take control of my life and turn any moment into a step toward attaining my goals, however small that step may be.
It’s all about attitude and action. And guess what? It works. With a bonus: I’m a whole happier.
What are you going to do to take action and make this moment count?
Until next time, and wishing you control of your own life,
