Nike really hit the nail on the head with this one. One of my favorite videos on the internet is Shia LaBeouf screaming JUST DO ITTTT!!! If you have no clue what I’m talking about, go Google it, and come back… It’s dramatic and full of lots of shouting, but you have to admit it’s pretty motivational! He’s right isn’t he? Yesterday, you said you’d do it tomorrow…and that day is here now. Ready to be conquered!
I want to share a personal story with you real quick, because sometimes it helps to have something to relate to. There has been this opportunity at my fingertips for a couple months now. An AMAZING, right up my alley, dream job, schedule fitting, opportunity that I’ve simply been too scared to go for. I’ve contemplated, asked family, gotten opinions, waited, second guessed, talked myself in and out of it… Fearing the worst instead of anticipating the best! WHY AM I DOING THAT!? I know I’ll crush my goals, I know I’ll fit right in, I know it’ll be so good for my business and personal growth. So WHAT AM I WAITING FOR!?
The fear of failing has stood in my way, the idea that someone will question what I’m doing, the thought of “maybe I’m not ready yet”. All of those words clouding my mind when in reality, I’m the only thing standing in my way!! ME. MYSELF. I. Have you felt that way before?
As you know, I spend a good chunk of my time on social media, but I’m conscious to always surround myself with those that I want to be like. Those that inspire me each day, motivating friends, guiding me towards the life I want. So as I was doing my makeup this morning, I was all in my head with questions about my future and trying to decide what to do…when an Instagram story came up. She was talking about how much her life has changed, how important it is to go for what you want, to stop waiting, to stop doubting, and JUST DO IT!! I felt like I’d been shaken up and like she was talking straight to me. THAT was the push I needed.
I’m now in the process of accepting the opportunity full force and GOING FOR IT! I’m making the changes that I want to see in myself because I have decided that I deserve it. I get to make the rules for my life. I get to take chances and set goals and make plans to reach my dreams! “One day at a time” is what I always say, but we can’t forget that ONE DAY starts now. Tomorrow’s plans won’t follow through unless you start working on them today. Now. My dad alway tells us to do something that our future selves will thank us for. And that, my friend, is what I’m going to do! And what I’m going to beg you to do with me! Tomorrow isn’t promised, but we have right now. This moment. Don’t let yourself regret not taking the chance. You can do this! WE can do this!
Until next time,
Stay crushing it, darling!
