Have You Reached That Moment Yet?

“A moment comes when the desire to do what you really want nearly overwhelms you and it feels like you can’t go another day without making a change.”

-Tyler Tervooren, in his post Stand on a corner and sing

That’s what it felt like when we finally did what it took to be debt free. And when I quit my job. And when…well, you get the picture.

Have you reached that moment yet? The moment where you can’t go another day without making it happen?

If you're not already doing what you really want to be doing, what's stopping you?If you’re not already doing what you really want to be doing, what’s stopping you?

That’s a little bit of a rhetorical question, because I’m not asking for a list of all the reasons why it “just won’t work.”

It doesn’t matter that you have kids, are married, are single, don’t have kids, live in a big city, live in the country, have bills, have dogs, have whatever, or are missing whatever.

I’m asking you to figure out what’s really stopping you, and how you intend to get past that.

Search your heart, and figure it out. Then take those risks, in a calculated way.

This is life.

This is our only life, and we ALL should be doing the things we really want to be doing.

When we want it that badly, we need to find a way to make it happen. And it can happen. Even for you.

We just have to do it, a little bit at a time — or sometimes in a few giant leaps.

And we have to keep doing it, even when we don’t feel like it, or when we’d rather go watch a movie, or when we get tempted by the latest and greatest.

We have to keep our heart’s desire front and center, reach out, and take those risks.

They’re worth it. You’re worth it.
