A lot of people spend their entire lives waiting for that magical moment when something special will happen. They often spend days, weeks, months and even years dreaming about the day when all of their hopes and dreams will be fulfilled.
Some are anxiously waiting for the right man or woman to come into their lives and sweep them off their feet so that they can live happily ever after.
Others are waiting for the right career opportunity with that big promotion that will provide the salary and the security that they have always wanted.
Let us not forget to mention the countless numbers of people who are waiting for the perfect get rich quick scheme so that they can fulfill their ultimate fantasy of living the millionaire lifestyle.
And what about those who are waiting to drop bad habits or get out of situations that they know are bad for them and serve no useful purpose in their lives?
The list goes on and on and we could without a doubt fill countless pages with dreams that we are waiting to see come true but compiling a list is useless if we are not committed and prepared to take action.
Remaining still and simply doing nothing will only create greater distance between you and your goals as time continues to move forward.
So how do you manage to break this vicious cycle if you happen to be one of those unfortunate people who have found yourself participating in the waiting game?
You can begin to change this self destructive pattern by following three basic steps:
1. The first thing that you must do is realize that waiting is just an excuse for not living your life...not getting the things that you want and deserve.
2. You must never forget that life is short and you owe it to yourself to live each and every day to the fullest.
3. Choose one key item to work on, make a plan, and execute your plan.
You owe it to yourself to get off the sidelines and into the game of life.
The journey of a lifetime begins with one small step.
Take control of your life today and make a firm commitment to stop waiting and start living.
