He didn’t know what he was going to, but it had to be better than what he was leaving behind
– Harry Potter
We don’t know what lies in the future, we don’t know where we’re going to end up
But every day we get the chance to shape our future through the choices we make and the opportunities we take
So no matter how bad the past has been we can look ahead with great excitement because the future possibilities are endless so they have to be better than what we leave behind
The disappointment when you wake up on new years day to find that you are not a new you…
You are still the same version of yourself that you were
See change requires work
And work is hard
It doesn’t start on a Monday or a new year
It starts today, it starts now
And it’s a hard process
You either do the work or you stop lying to yourself
Christmas is like
Putting your dreams and goals out there for the world to hear
You tell everyone what you want
You think about them constantly
And you wait
Until a short time in the future you wake up and everything you want is waiting under a tree,
We dont do this in September or july, that would be too long a wait, we only do this late November or the start of December…
Like our dreams we seem to only think about them all the time, we tell people what we want and we wait…
Unlike Christmas though people arnt gonna go out and buy your dreams, them you have to work for
And they’re gonna take longer than 25 days to get too
So remember that this new years
You’ve sidelined yourself
Now your watching the game of life play out in front of you.
Your watching others do the work you should be doing.
Your watching others get the results you should be getting.
Whilst you sit there and watch.
Whilst you sit there bitching and moaning.
But the stupid thing is…
You benched yourself.
But the good thing is…
You can unbench yourself, you can get up, you can do the work, you can stop moaning.
Because no one else is going to do it for you.
This game we call life…
Only you can control you.
So if you dont like where you are…
Change the way you are playing
Perfection is an Anchor
It weighs you down and stops you from moving forward.
When this is perfect I can do this
I can put it onto market
I can make some money or generate leads
Stop those thoughts because they are stopping you from progressing and moving forward
Perfection is the friend that looks like they’re helping but really they’re using you to stay afloat whilst your drowning
Perfection will sink you.
Good is great if the world sees it
Good can be improved upon
But the world will never see perfection
So do the work
But make sure you show it to the world
