Alrighty y’all. I’ve heard you. Literally. In the last 6 months, I’ve met more people than I would imagine that mentioned missing my Monday posts that I’m choosing to pick them back up. I think this is the second time, actually. I’m just still shocked that more than just my mom reads this blog. (haha!) SO. Monday Motivation is BAAAAACK!
I’m going to kick off the series’ return with a statement that really impacted me since I heard it two years ago (almost to the day):
“Hell on earth would be meeting the person you COULD HAVE become”. Followed up with the question “What would you regret if you met that person?”
I mean WHOA.
Think about it.
Now really think about it.
Is there something you have had on your heart for a while but have not pursued because of some (probably lame) excuse you’ve made up? Dreams that you’ve pushed to the side because it just wasn’t the right timing or you didn’t even know where to start? Or you thought they just were not meant to be? Let me encourage you to get out of your head and take some action.
So many people are afraid to try something because they are afraid of failing. But failing is just one step closer to success. And from personal experience, I can tell you that what seems like a failure is often the first step to a breakthrough. But you NEVER know until you try.
There really is no such thing as failure there are only results. That’s a Tony Robbins quote. Chew on that for a moment.
If there is something you’re dreaming of doing (and I’m sure there is), why the ^&*% NOT you?! If you can dream it, then you can do it. Maybe not right away. Maybe not perfectly. Maybe not even well. But if you’re dreaming of becoming a concert pianist and haven’t even taken a piano lesson, get on the internet and find a piano teacher right away! You have to dream before you can pursue your dreams, right?
The catch is that you have to get out there and maybe (probably) feel a little more vulnerable than you’d naturally care to. But you have to be out there in order to meet the opportunities that are waiting for you.
So, going back to the idea of meeting the person you COULD HAVE been.
What dreams or desires have been hiding in your heart that need to be released? I challenge you to take some time to write these dreams down. And then write down the regret you’d have if you did not do something about them. Weigh the results. And I hope you dare to follow your dreams!
