Just do it. Unless you’re living under a box you have probably seen or heard this recently. If you haven’t… stop living under a box. This is Nike’s big message to people buying their products. It’s only three words but I think that it’s meaning is very powerful and could make us better, disciplined, and harder working people.We all have two choices available to us at all times. The choices are simple, either take a step forward or remain where you’re at.
I don’t ever want to stay put in life. Life is just too beautiful and too short to stand still and let it fly by. Taking steps forward is how we grow, how we accomplish goals, and how we take control of our lives; so life doesn’t take control of us. In order for us to move forward we must first think about what is we want or want to accomplish and then we act on it. By this I mean just getting out there and doing it. The problem is a lot of us get stuck on the second step, which happens to be the most important step.
If you want to do something, seriously, just fucking do it. No one is stopping you! Just think about for a second. I like to amaze myself everyday and think about this life that we are living; it’s awesome. We could have been born ants or freakin’ cucumbers for all we know and we happened to experience life as humans. Life is too precious to not do exactly what it is we want to, and to live it the way we want to. So get off your ass and do whatever it is you wanna do.
Whether it’s becoming a millionaire, famous, mastering the piano, traveling the world, or even starting a new hobby; you deserve it and you know you can accomplish it. It’s just all about wanting it badly enough and taking action. We have all these ideas and goals we want to accomplish but we don’t make moves, we don’t take steps forward. I feel like the reasons we don’t is because we get caught up thinking about how to do it, when we’ll be “ready”, or expecting life to hand it to us because it just knows we want it that bad, like it’s destiny you’ll be a millionaire. But no, it won’t work that way, and you know this.
Stop telling yourself, you’re not ready, you don’t know how to do it, it’s too hard, you can’t accomplish it by yourself, etc. We have to take this opportunity to make life exactly as we want it because its just so incredible. All it takes is doing it. If you want it that bad, you’ll do whatever it takes to save the money for it, you’ll learn everything you can about it, you will master the subject, you’ll put everything aside to accomplish this specific goal. Really think about, you can do it. A great example of just taking action and doing what you want is me starting this blog. For about about month or so I wanted to start a blog. First, I started by googling things like “how to blog”, “what to blog about” and “how to get people to read your blog.” Yeah, these are reasonable questions to ask but after a couple days of “research” I realized I lost my motivation and didn’t take the last step; taking action. See, the problem is I thought about it too much and in away discouraged myself away from starting a blog. A couple weeks later I felt that same feeling, I wanted to start blogging. The difference this time around is I knew I had to just do it. How is it possible for me to learn and answer these questions I had without even starting a blog? I still don’t know what the hell I’m doing but each day I’m getting better and better at it. The key is to just feel that impluse to do something and start right away. Don’t over think it.
Now it’s not gonna happen in an hour, a week, a month, or a year from now but you should know anything worthwhile isn’t easy to accomplish. One of my favorite quotes as of right now is, “a year from now you will have wished you started today”. All it takes is making that first move forward and really doing it. Stop thinking about doing it, and just do it.
