Have you ever had those moments when you know exactly what you should do, but you just don’t? You know it would be good for you and improve your quality of life, but that is not enough to produce any action …

I’m guilty of this all the time with things like eating healthy, blogging regularly, getting to bed early, practicing guitar … Since nothing is really terrible, I slide by with an average life instead of working toward better tomorrows.

The reality is today we could make decisions to drastically move us forward towards our desired futures, but it’s always easiest to just think & dream about it rather than actually doing it. The hardest part is that it seems the more important a call or action is to our soul’s evolution the more resistance we feel towards actually getting off the couch and pursuing it.

This blog exists because the struggle is real. It makes sense why people live their whole lives without taking big risks & doing big things — it’s just so much easier. The sad part is it is also so much less rewarding! I believe at the end of my life the majority of my regrets will be tied to things I never did — the risks I could have taken but got too scared to move on. Because of mind games running rampant in my head, I let my life become stale & full of inaction; I begin to play the comparison game, measuring my life by what others are doing around me. That just isn’t how I want to live this one life I have, & I don’t think that you want that for your life either…

We don’t need another motivational blog or another Shia Labeouf video telling us to “just do it.” What we need is a reality check.

While we sit on the sidelines dreaming about tomorrow, today is passing by.

We have this moment now, and we can use it to our advantage.

What is one thing today that could move you toward your desired future?

Is it a conversation you need to have? Maybe a run you need to go on?

Don’t let “someday” rob you of today. Be all in.

If no one else is cheering for you, I am. For real though, I’m sick of seeing people get robbed. You can make your one & only life count. Don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
