Thoughts from Worry Free Island: What is it that gets us started on a project, an adventure, a change of life etc..?
Having given this some thought, so many people say, “I will do it when things are right.” In my experience, things will never be exactly right to make major change or make big decisions. So what is the catalyst to moving on?
There is only one thing that will guarantee that you will do something outside the box, and that is TOTAL COMMITMENT, not “That sounds like a good idea”, or “Yeah that sounds like fun”, but I am doing this NOW and I am going to just let things pan out in front of me.
In every situation that I have known where someone has made a genuine commitment to do something, magical things happen to move them forward. It seems that once you are focused and committed, the opportunities and people that can help, appear at exactly the right time.
Opportunities are always there, but it is not until you are clear as to where you are going that they become obvious.
Trying to work out what will happen and HOW things are going to happen will keep you stuck in one place, because if you knew how to get to the new place, you would already be there.
Tip: Do not let fear of the unknown stop you having an adventure.
