I remember a scene from ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’, a western movie from back in the days. A man pointed a gun at his adversary and went on and on about how he was going to kill him, the pleasure he would derive, and so on. At some point in his speech, his adversary shot him, then said ‘If you want to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk’. Laugh out loud! I think that’s all I really remember from that movie. It was just so funny.
Well, there’s a lot of sense in what that man said. People often go on and on about what they plan to do and at the end of the day they don’t do it. It’s almost as if the passion and zeal evaporates through their mouths as they speak and before they know it, they’re wondering why they wanted to do it in the first place. It’s easy to settle into the state of rationalizing your dreams away and this is something you must guard against.
Was it a good idea? Did it make sense to you? Do you know how to get from where you are to the place where that dream becomes a reality? If you don’t, do you know the people and resources that could help you chart your course? Have you consulted the experts to improve your chance for a safe landing at your desired destination?
Don’t procrastinate anymore. Get up and get moving. Pursue your dream. Don’t sit around asking, ‘what if it doesn’t work?’ You’ll never know until you try. What if it does work? What difference would that make in your life? Is that difference worth the effort? Keep that in mind and GO FOR IT!
