So, the year is almost GONE.
Did you just remind me that “WE ARE STILL IN MARCH?”
I am well aware of that fact.
THE YEAR IS ALMOST GONE.
Okay! Let us have a chitchat
There is a subtle thing that happens when it is time to start achieving goals.
You always set the big things for LATER.
“I would start the business by DECEMBER”
(What is wrong with TODAY?)
“I would make one million dollars by 2050
(Why not APRIL?).
Let me tell you something so important.
The reason why you keep postponing those big dreams of yours is because you are scared of WHAT IT IS GOING TO COST you to achieve them.
It is easy to draw out your plans on paper.
It is easy to sit down on your couch and begin to imagine the future.
It is easy to suddenly become successful in your mind.
THE GAME CHANGES when the success you have envisioned stares at you in the face.
SUDDENLY! words like
ETC… begins to ring in your head.
Fear comes in.
(Read my article on fear
to help you overcome it).
YOU BEGIN TO QUESTION YOURSELF IF YOU COULD ACTUALLY MAKE THAT FUTURE HAPPEN.
after trying for a while - YOU SUDDENLY CONCLUDE that it is not POSSIBLE.
In order to prevent you from feeling bad about yourself, you start deceiving yourself that YOU WOULD ACHIEVE IT IN THE FUTURE.
OGBENI (HEY! FELLA)
I just exposed your secret.
You see that crap up there?
It’s summed up in one word - SELF DECEIT.
You are simply deceiving yourself.
You are deceiving yourself that:
1) You cannot be successful at doing the big stuffs.
2) You would achieve it LATER.
Listen to me right now.
Today is the TOMORROW you once spoke about.
Now is the LATER you once projected into.
SO, IT IS ALL CRAP.
IF YOU DON’T START DOING NOW what you have planned to achieve LATER, You would never achieve anything in your life.
THERE IS NO SUCH TIME AS LATER.
LATER is relative and it has no definite period.
Those big dreams you are scared to start because of the price it would cost you might be the reason why you are still BROKE.
As long as you don’t want to pay the price - FORGET ABOUT THE PRIZE.
INSTEAD OF PUTTING YOUR LIFE IN THE HANDS OF AN UNREAL REALITY CALLED "LATER”,
Start doing it now.
THE YEAR IS ALMOST GONE.
Did you remember what you told your boo?
that you were going to buy a lexus by march?
(Why have you not achieved it?)
You think that tomorrow would just happen without your contribution.
I don’t need to say much again.
IF YOU ARE STILL THINKING ABOUT WAITING FOR TOMORROW.
You already know that you would become an OLD, BROKE, GOOD-FOR-NOTHING human who is just wasting space on earth.
BEFORE THE YEAR ENDS and you are greeting your FAILED SELF another HAPPY NEW YEAR.
THE HUSTLE CONTINUES.
I would always tell you the truth
I AM COMMITTED TO YOU AND YOUR SUCCESS.
I would see you tomorrow.
I am out of here.
