Are you playing the waiting game, waiting for the day that success and happiness comes your way? Are you hoping for that moment when things start going your way? So many of you are simply playing the waiting game. Waiting for the right job, the right time to repair your health, that magical person to enter your life, or finding a solution to your big problem.
I am passionate about helping individuals and entrepreneurs create ambition plans for their business and personal life. I strongly believe that with the assistance of a great coach anything is possible. Also my Single Page Plan is a tool that can truly give anyone direction.
This last month has been personally very difficult for me and my family. We have been sitting vigil at the bedside of my father, waiting for him to die. At the beginning of March, he was sitting in his chair unable to lift his head. He couldn’t get out of his chair and was unable to take even in a single step. He was rushed into hospital.
After an initial diagnosis of a chest and water infection, it was then discovered that he has acute myeloid leukemia which is untreatable. At best, we were told he has weeks to live, but we should prepare for his death as it could be imminent. Since then we have been playing the waiting game, expecting any moment to see him taking his last breath. The wait continues, and we sit around trying to help him but feeling hopeless as there’s nothing we can do to stop this disease and its fatal consequences.
This has got me thinking about you.
Are you playing the waiting game?
What are you waiting for?
We all face uncertainties and life has no guarantees. The only guarantee is that if you do nothing you get nothing. I don’t want you sitting around, waiting. Miracles rarely happen. So, there is absolutely no point sitting around waiting for great thing to happen in your life? Instead, take action and put in the effort to create the life you want.
It is down to you to unlock your tremendous potential that is already lying within you and to show you how you can become the master of your life.
It is down to you to make things happen.
If you are not happy with certain aspects and circumstances in your life, change them rather than wait for miracles to happen. You are a creator and you already have everything you need to create a life that’s filled with love, happiness, abundance, peace and freedom.
You start by getting crystal clear about what you want, getting in touch with what you want. This isn’t about what you think you should want (you’ve been told all your life to want marriage, money, and fame… do you really?). Look at your fantasies and desires that are close to your heart, even the things that don’t seem possible. Picture the life you want to live, then break it down into its components. See everything you need to achieve to have this dream.
Then take action, massive action to bring this dream to fruition.
No one is going to make anything happen for you. That’s your job.
So, if you are currently playing the waiting game in your life, decide today that right now you’re going to step up and begin to make things happen.
The choices you make shape who you are today and who you will be tomorrow.
Just the other day my Dad said he was ready to go, “I’m proud of my legacy, I have done all I wanted.” Make sure you can say the same.
“Go for the moon. If you don’t get it, you’ll still be heading for a star. Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of the creative effort.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt
