"What you do today can improve all your tomorrows" - Ralph Marston.
Now, TODAY, is always the perfect time to evaluate your progress towards the goals you have for yourself. It's been said "the way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing!" It is never too late to start and you may need to eliminate some debilitating beliefs to do so. Here are some alternative thoughts to get you going for the rest of the week.
Your success is on schedule. In the era of Evan Spiegel's and Mark Zuckerburg's, it may seem like if you haven't built a billion dollar business by 25, you are behind. That is just not true. While 30 under 30 articles may get more shares, there are plenty of successful entrepreneurs who don't achieve 7 figure profits until their 40's and 50's. By the way, you don't have to be a millionaire. Your success is yours to own and does not have to look like a Forbes cover.
It's not too late or too early to do or build anything you want to do. I once jumped out of a plane next to a 50 year old woman. She was more fearless than I was. Getting started on a path young can bring the advantages of risk tolerance and naivety. Getting started later can bring the advantage of wisdom and experience. There is no right or wrong path. Start when YOU are ready.
You are enough. Do we have everything we need to achieve any and everything we want? Absolutely not. But confidence in our "enoughness" reframes our thinking into one of abundance and opportunity vs. scarcity and we are able to fill in the gaps of whatever we lack.
You have control. An external locus of control sees the world / external factors as the cause for blame or celebration when it comes to your success or challenges. Outside events have an unquestionable impact on our lives. But no external event can determine how we bounce back, what we learn from experience and if we decide to keep going.
You are the sum of your thoughts. Every day, every moment, you will have a decision to make. Will you be consumed by doubts? fear? scarcity? Or will you be driven by abundance, your will to succeed and your confidence in your abilities?
Change your thoughts today, right now. and improve all your tomorrows.
