Just let go of all your dreams, goals, ambitions and aspirations. Settle for less. Make point B disappear, just delete it, and – poof! – The tension is gone. And that, sadly, is the choice that the 95% who travel to failure curve eventually make.
It’s not hard to understand why so many people make that second choice. After all, when you’re standing here at point A, gazing off into the distance at point B, it’s easy to be intimidated by how far away it looks. People don’t even want to set foot on the path if they don’t think they can make it to the end. Why even try? I mean, if the mountains that huge, why take the first step? I’ll probably never make it anyway... when the journey seems daunting, “ it’s easy not to do” can be a lot more appealing than “easy to do”!
But remember, you have to go one direction or the other; you can’t stand still. Everything is constantly changing. There are only two possibilities. Either you let go of where you are and get to where you could be, or you hang onto where you are and give up where you could be. You are either going for your dreams or giving up your dreams. Stretching for what you could be, or settling for what you are. There is simply no in between. Remember, doing nothing means going down.
It’s your choice.
