We all have them. Make a list of all of them you have:
-you hate your job, but you still keep the same one
-you want to write, but you don’t
-you say you want to start exercising, but you don’t
-you go out and drink every night.
-you say you want to travel more, but you don’t
Jails aren’t just places you go when you’ve been bad. They can be mental, physical, and spiritual battles.
Most of these cages and jails can be attributed to excuses. We say we don’t have time to write that book.
We say we’ll start eating healthier, but starting after the New Years.
We say we’ll sit down and read that book, but, “It’s such a nice day outside. It’ll be a shame to waste it.”
And then, years later, we still haven’t done any of the things we wanted to do. We’re still overweight. We’re at the same bad job. And we still haven’t written.
The thing is, we have a choice. We’ve always had a choice. We can choose to be inside a closed jar, circling around and around in the water.
Or we can leave. We can transform ourselves and fly to vast oceans we only thought existed.
But it starts with today. No more excuses.
The best time to start was last year. The second best time, is today.
