Just do it

Many people dream big, talk big, but ironically only a few actually do big things. The majority keep procrastinating by making excuses like, “I am waiting for the right time, for money to come and for help to appear.” Big dreams are only seen by those who begin the process by doing something in the midst of impossibilities. Nothing will ever happen until you start. For an example, I have been dreaming for years about writing motivational books. I kept talking big about the books I am going to write that will inspire many. But sadly nothing happened because I was not doing anything. My thoughts and words began to turn into fruition the day I started to put pen to paper. Today, the second edition of my book, Being Positive In A Negative World: spiced weekly nugget has been completed. I am now seeing the manifestation of my dream. And there is nothing as fulfilling as hearing others saying that my book is making a difference in their lives. One thing I have learned is that if you don’t start the engine, the car will not move. So, if you want to turn your dreams into reality start doing something in spite of the challenges you are experiencing.

As we prepare ourself to board the plane that is taking us to 2011, its important to know that not everything is supposed to be packed in our luggage. Certain things and people are supposed to be left behind. We need to leave behind our negative attitude, bad habits, past painful experiences, fears, failures, disappointments, ungrateful and selfish friends, abusive and unfaithful partners and misleading and bad company. Remember what you don't discard will continue following you like dirty smelling sneakers. What we need to pack is the following items in order to enjoy the journey: positive attitude, honest and caring friends, loving and supporting partners, positive and exciting dreams and positive and empowering habits. Enjoy the journey and i wish you all the best in 2011.
