Shift Your Habits
Blog post #2 of #SHIFTYOURHABITS by Dace PAVLOVIČA
"When I will have...., then I will do...."
"When I will have enough of time (money, etc.), then I will go on the trip /will start to implement my dream /will start running my own company… (etc.)”
"When my children will grow up, then I will turn on my dreams"
And so on..
All of us sometimes get stuck in those traps. "When I... , then I... "
Why it is so important not to postpone anything what is important to you?
At the first, we all have just this moment. The present. Nobody of us have time "later" actually. Sometimes we are used to think that we have. But the truth - we can live just in this very moment as it is do ours. When we start focusing on time "later", very often it means "never". My dad had a dream. Somewhen – when he will have enough money and time, he will travel to Norway. It is very close country to Latvia actually. Not SO far. He postponed his dream for years. And then… passed away. There is NO TIME later. Just this one. The present. The moment we are embracing NOW!
At the second, once you postpone something, you start seeing more and more obstacles of not doing that or this. Because you don't have something. And if you are focused on “lack of something” it creates more and more lack of the same (time/money etc.) in your life. Simply you start seeing more and more lack for everything.
This mindset definitely doesn’t help you to move toward your dreams. Unconsciously you start embracing victim’s mindset. Starting to see yourself as helpless human being which have no opportunities to change his/her life. Those are lies! Please, stop telling yourself those lies.
All of us have freedom to choose whatever we want and go in the direction which leads us closer to our dreams, not far away from them. Just make the choice and this statement for yourself: “I am free. Nobody else can do it for me. I am the one who is responsible for my life and I will do anything to achieve my dreams!” It should help to awake the strongest part of you. To switch yourself from “victim’s” to “hero’s” mode. From helpless to powerful.
At the third, if you have postponed something for a long time, it’s quite possible that fears have acquired huge power above you. Not “lack of something” is the main reason for you not doing what’s important for you – BUT YOUR FEAR what if YOU COULD FAIL.
And then it is safer not to start at all. Because – if you fail, what the others will think of you? But the truth is: each failure leads you closer to your success!
And there is no matter what others think or don’t think about you. All of us have our own life and own path. The most important is what you think about yourself and how you see yourself. It’s not about others. It’s about what is your attitude to yourself. (Hopefully, encouraging, not judgmental. If not – change it. Change it immediately. You are YOUR FRIEND, not your ENEMY..)
Your power lives within you. In your thoughts about yourself. In your beliefs about yourself and your life. And nothing else matters.
Don’t postpone anything. Start where you are with what you have at this moment. Don’t overthink. Simply take the steps toward what is important to you. Take those tiny steps toward your dreams. And DO IT NOW!!!
