‘Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do...’
What are you waiting for today? What are you holding back on? What are you putting off? What decisions will you regret not taking?
One of the hardest things to overcome is the inertia of our lives – the comfort of doing what we have always done. The trouble is if you keep on doing the same things you will remain exactly as you are – as the saying goes ‘nothing ventured nothing gained’. The laws of physics tell us that it takes a certain amount of force to overcome the inertia of an object in order to create an initial momentum that leads to the movement of the object –once it is moving is takes much less force to keep it on the go.
What is your initial move of force for your life today? What one thing will get you ‘on the move’ in your life? What action could you take to start the process of success and move you out of your comfort zone, so that you start to gain momentum? Is there some obstacle to overcome? Is there just one task that is staring you in the face that you are putting off? Is it time to ‘eat your biggest frog’?
If you want to look back in twenty years on the success you have had, the adventures you have been on, the relationships that you have enjoyed – to see a life of fulfilment and achievement – then what will you do today to guarantee your own outcome?
Take some time now to plan your first step. What will you do first? Who will support you? What resources do you need to help you? When will you start?

‘The shift comes as you continue beyond the uncomfortability’ Robin Linn.
What area of your life do you want to change? Where are you heading to? Are you ready to make the sacrifice?
With any change in your life there will inevitably be some discomfort. Anything new in your life is more than likely going to be out of your comfort zone…but as my Everest sweater states: ‘that is where the good stuff happens!’ When trekking to Everest base camp there were many times I felt like giving up. At one point I was so sick that I was almost forced to give up. But I needed to achieve my goal… I had set my sight on Everest and I endured the uncomfortability to ensure that I reached it. This serves me as a metaphor as I have faced, and continue to face massive change in my life. It is never easy, it is never comfortable…but it is what I want to reach my goals.
What about you? Are you ready to make the shift in your life…in your consciousness...into your dreams? It is time to step out of your comfort zone…make the shift.

‘You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands - your own’ Mark Victor Hansen
Is it time for you to take back control of your life? Is it time to take back the confidence you need for this year? Is it time to take responsibility for your life? Who do you want to be?
There has never been a better time than now for you to take charge of your life. It will mean losing the stress of being pushed around by others and feeling like a victim – out of control. It will mean you start to become the confident person you have always wanted to be. It is in your hands if you want to make some changes – and when better to start than now?
What thoughts are you holding in your mind right now? Are they thoughts that will encourage you, build you up, and lead you to a more confident and stronger you? Only you can change your thoughts – and they have a habit of becoming self-fulfilling! If you constantly think about not achieving, not being brave or confident, not being able to handle life – then that will become true for you. You might convince yourself you’re just being ‘realistic’! Then you can be happy in your negativity and assure yourself that this is the best way to live without adventure or disappointment! What a great and ‘realistic’ way to live!?
When you take charge and make the change in your mind – you can become equally ‘realistic’ about the positive actions and life you lead. If it becomes true then it becomes real...you are in charge! So start thinking about achieving, about being brave and confident, about handling it – and see your life change for the better. Let that realism become your new positive reality – once you start, it’s amazing just how much positive change happens, and just how quickly it can take hold!
To quote Henry Ford again ‘If you think you can, and if you think you can’t – you are right!’ Think about it! Only you can change this – as Mark says, ‘put your future in good hands’!
