Cut the shit, cut the excuses, cut the lies you tell yourself as to why you can't start today. Let's be honest, how many times have we said we will do X,Y and Z tomorrow and one week later you still haven't done what you said you would do?
I am the same, that is why to the best of my ability, if I am going to do something I am going to do it right now. Deferring the task until tomorrow is your brains way of removing pressure, of finding comfort and to feel safe once again.
Mediocrity 1 - You 0.
During my military career, after making the transition from the infantry into NZ Special Operations Forces, I talked to a lot of soldiers who were going to do selection and come up north "one day".
I can tell you now, if you don't take immediate action, one day turns into never, and never turns into a lifetime of regret. Think about it, how many times have you sat there reminiscing on the past, thinking what if I had asked out that girl, turned up to that interview, applied for that opportunity, joined that gym, started that thing?
Well, today is your reminder, that what the "thing" is, today is the day mother fuckers, it's fucking sign up day, it's fucking start day, it's change your fucking life day!
Why? Why not? Why not take the risk and see if it pays off? Why not start the project and see what you can create? Why not join that gym and see how much you can transform? Why not start today on the journey of uncovering your full potential.
Don't worry about the doubt, the anxiousness, the nerves, the haters, the naysayers, worry about one thing. Starting, starting today.
