You can’t | You can | You Must
Should have, Would have, Could Have | Did
No matter what you want in life, no matter what you want five, ten years from now; you must begin today. You must be prepared to fail if you must, you must be willing to find out what you really need to succeed. How will you ever know your limits if you do not test them today? You can study, you can research, you can plan, you can dream no one says you can’t and you should! However, you also have to do, you have to try!
Wanting is never enough! To want something and wait until tomorrow to take a step closer to it … is like not wanting something at all. If you truly want something in your life, you must walk towards it, you must run towards it, you must leap towards it, you must climb to reach it, you must take action. If you truly want something in life you must be willing to tumble and fall in your pursuit of it.
Be prepared; yes, you must be prepared. Plan; yes, you must plan. Dream; yes, you must dream. Take action; yes, you must take action. You cannot wait until tomorrow to act, tomorrow may never come. You will never be ready but you are ready. You may not be ready to climb the entire mountain, you may not be ready to run the entire marathon, you may not be ready to lead an entire company, you may not be ready to lose all your extra weight, you may not be ready to reach the highest heights. You are however ready to take the first step. You are ready to take a step in the right direction. You are ready to start.
You are not ready to finish. You are ready to start. You are always ready to start.
Your limits today are defined by what you did yesterday and your limits tomorrow are defined by what you do today. You are not ready but you are. You may not be ready to be the man/woman you need to be tomorrow but you are ready to be the man/woman you need to be today. You are not ready to do what you must do five years from now but you are ready to do what you must today to get there.
You are always ready to take action and you must therefore take it. You don’t know yet what you need to know tomorrow, but you know what you need to know today. You don’t yet know the people you need to know tomorrow, but you know the people you need to know today. Take action ask for the connection to the next person in the chain. Today you can reach out to a friend that has a friend, that has a friend that knows a friend, that knows the man/woman you need to know.
Today you know enough to learn what you need to know tomorrow. If you don’t yet know how to cure disease, you know enough to know that you must learn more. You know enough to learn more. Take action now. You will never be ready for tomorrow, but you are always ready for today.
You will not reach your five year goal today, you will not get to where you want to be in ten years in one day. Face today’s challenge! Take action today, walk, run, leap, climb towards your goal. Be pleased with every step you take in the knowledge that you are one step closer to where you need to be. Life is not a race, life is a journey. A journey of a thousand steps begins with the first. If it takes a thousand steps, then you must take the first today, now.
You cannot be the man/woman you need to be five years from now today. You can be the man/woman you need to be today to get to where you want to be in five years. You can’t, You can, You must.
