I know you’ve probably heard it before, if you want to do something, now is the time. And I couldn’t agree more. Whatever it is that you want to pursue, whether its launch a business, advance in your career or start a side hustle, NOW is the time. Life's too short and you only get one shot, so take advantage of the moment and go for it.
I LOVE running outdoors. I get in my zone and push myself to hit 4 miles in 35 minutes or so, with my rap music blasting loud in my ears. (don’t judge me) Anywho, one song that gets me so pumped and helps me get my 2nd wind after I've been running for awhile is, Lose Yourself by Eminem.
The opening of the song is as follows…
"Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?”
"You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime"
Good stuff, right? Your opportunity is now! There will NEVER be a perfect time, you just have to make a decision to pursue your dreams and GO for it. (I like capitalizing certain words to get your attention)
The #1 reason I get when I talk to clients as to why they're not pursuing their dreams is because of the F word, yup you guessed it FEAR.
If fear is holding you back from doing what you love, then I want to encourage you to face your fears and move forward. Experiencing fear is ok, the problem is when you allow your fears to keep you stuck and stagnant.
If you're like many women, your life is busy and hectic and there never seems to be enough time to think about what you want for your life. I want you to squeeze out a few minutes wherever you can and answer the following questions. In order for you to chase your dreams you have to first figure out what you want. The Stuck To Free Toolkit will help you dig deeper but I want to give you a few questions to help you get started.
- What do I want for my life?
- What do I want my life to look like a year from now?
- What is my purpose in life?
- What are my natural gifts?
- What’s one thing I will do differently in order to shift the direction of my life?
In the last verse of the song, Eminem says, “success is my only option, failure is not!”
I can totally relate to that, success is my only option and this is the very reason I keep pushing hard every single day. I want my life to change for the better and I understand that now is my moment and I have to seize every opportunity. You only get one shot, so take it now!
Setting goals doesn't have to be a complex thing. Figure out what you want to achieve in your life and then work your butt off to get it done. Stop trying to do everything at once and simply focus on completing one goal at a time.
Will you seize the moment and do what you’re passionate about or will you sit back and watch everyone else chase their dreams?
