One Day or Day One? It’s Your Decision

We all speak of a better future as something that we highly anticipate. The “better tomorrow” that we patiently await to happen.
We speak of where we see ourselves in one, five or ten years.
We make plans.
We have goals.
But how much of us can really say that they are working towards this better future? Is this something that you can reach, and if so, how exactly do you plan to do that?
You often hear people say that they will pursue their dreams and goals “one day”. But what exactly do they mean?
When is this day they are talking about going to come?
You see, there is an enormous difference between saying that you will eventually come around and finish a task, one that will lead you closer to your goal, and actually doing this.
It’s the main difference between ONE DAY, meaning that you are delaying your goals and dreams, and DAY ONE, indicating that you are already working on something.
So, which one is it? After all, it’s your decision.
Stop With the Excuses
One of the main reasons people don’t pursue their goals and dreams is because they are too busy making all sorts of excuses.
I will leave it for later.
It’s okay, I will do it another day.
I will start next month… year… one day.
It’s always the same excuses. It’s all talk and no work.
However, sooner or later, you will realize that this behavior of yours is actually keeping you away from the future that you anticipate and the future that you want to reach one day.
Your excuses are not doing you any favor, only keeping you inside of your comfort zone, a place where everything is familiar and easy to predict. But your comfort zone is a limited place, one where you cannot grow beyond the limitations.
Like every other person in this world, you too, have your ambitions, aspirations, and goals.
You want to achieve greatness, or you simply want to be happy and content in life.
No matter what you are striving for, big or small, the essential point is that you have milestones that you need to pass in order to get to the end goal.
You keep these goals for the future to come. They are somewhat distant for you at the moment, but it’s crucial that you understand just how easy it is to determine and influence this distance.
The time it will take you to accomplish everything you set your mind to is prolonged with each excuse you make.
Saying that you will do something “one day” because you are too afraid to act in the moment is probably the biggest one of them all.
Your dreams can be easily obtained and accomplished, or they can remain what they are — fantasies you have about a better future.
It’s your decision.
You can either keep dreaming and finding excuses why not to pursue your goals, or you can start acting on them and remove your excuses altogether.
I have no doubt that you are capable of doing anything you set your mind to, so why limit yourself?
Why conform to what you have when you want so much more?
