Write It Down

You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands – your own. – Mark Victor Hansen

We all know about affirmations, and that saying them regularly can be very powerful. I want you to take your affirmation, your goal or your dream and write it down.  Write it down every day and really focus on it.  Writing down your affirmation, dreams or goals gives them so much power and so much strength.

When you record your dreams, goals and affirmations on paper, your ability to focus on them is so much stronger.  When you write, focus all your energy and attention on each word as you write it down.

Remember when you were a kid in school and you got your spelling list each week.  Wasn’t one of the exercises your teacher made you do was write each word 3 times? And what happened when you did that?  They were a little easier to spell.  Write it down.  Every goal, every dream, and every affirmation.  Write it down and focus on it.  The universe will get the message.

Don’t Wait

Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful. -Mark Victor Hansen

Don’t wait.  You have dreams, plans and goals, but you’re waiting for the perfect time to start?  Well that perfect time will never come, so don’t wait. There is always going to be something that gets in your way or causes problems. Think about that diet and exercise program you were going to start. You were going to wait until the New Year.  New year, new start.  Oh but New Year’s day was on a Tuesday, and you wanted to start on a Monday, so you decided to wait a week.  Then there was a huge snow storm and you couldn’t get to the gym, and the power went out so you had to eat a lot of peanut butter sandwiches on white bread. But it’s okay, you’ll start next week! And please understand, when I say you, I’m totally talking about me lol.

Don’t wait.  Take the first step, and then the second.  It’s just one step at a time, and with each step you take, you’ll grow more confident and you’ll be one more step closer to your goal. It’s scary, believe me, I know just how scary it is to take that first step.  Don’t let your fear stop you though. It’s just one step.  And what happens if you fail?  Nothing, you dust yourself off and try again.

Don’t wait.  This is it, this is your life.  You don’t know what tomorrow may bring, so you may as well start today.

The Time is Now

Don’t wait until everything is just right…There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you grow stronger and stronger. – Mark Victor Hansen

I’m sitting here today completely exhausted from an extremely busy senior week at school, thinking about all of the things I still need to get done for

the time is now

both work, and myself and wondering how it’s going to get done. Well here’s the thing. I can spend all this time thinking about it, or I can just start doing it. There is no better time to start than right now. The time is now. Not later, not tomorrow, not next Monday or next month. The time is now and there is no better time.

Procrastination is a huge problem for me. Now there can be some benefits to delaying something a little bit while you weigh your options and figure out strategies. That can be sensible. But flat out waiting to start because you’re waiting for the perfect time. Well that’s just pointless. There is never ever going to be a perfect time, or a perfect scenario to start something. So why wait?

The thing is, life is messy, and perfectly imperfect. So if you’re waiting for the perfect opportunity to do something, you’re going to be waiting a very long time. If you want to do something, the time is now! Just summon your courage and take that first step. That’s the hardest part. But you can do it. Just don’t be afraid to start. The time is now!
