Goals, dreams, desires and wishes. We all have them. They could be related to business, professional, personal, financial, spiritual, etc. Yet, we love to wait, talk about it and think some more before we do anything. Many times, after years of contemplating, we talk ourselves out of it!
Recently a friend let me know she had bought a RV. She’s in her 50’s and has wanted to travel for many years – however, her husband doesn’t like leaving home. Then, she shared with me her progress: the places she had scheduled to visit, notification to her employer of her last day and letting her husband know of her plans. She was excited and nervous. She would be travelling solo; however, she would continue the part-time retail business she had created during the past couple of years to earn money while on the road!
It reminded me of a time when my mother wanted to go to Hawaii. My dad didn’t. So, my mother finally purchased tickets for herself and a good friend. They went and had a great time. My dad never let my mother travel again without him!
We all have dreams that have been percolating for a long time. It took me years before I finally decided to move to Colorado from Michigan – I had been talking about it for years – I had setup my business so I could live anywhere – yet, it took time before I finally said, “yes.” I remember driving down Highway 69 and still contemplating turning around! However, after I arrived, I noticed an inner confidence that naturally developed after making the move – it boded well for achieving my next set of goals.
So, whatever it is you’re thinking about doing … do it now!
