As Angel and I watched a rerun of the Academy Awards last night, we both noticed an obvious commonality between many of the speeches the winners on stage made when they accepted their awards. If you stripped the details out of each speech, 90% of them boiled down to:
“I am so thankful. My whole life has been leading up to this moment.”
The most interesting thing about this sentiment, in my opinion, is that regardless of a human being’s social status, wealth, age, or unique situation, their whole life has undoubtedly been leading up to every present moment of their life. Think about that for a second. This reality might seem more significant on stage at a high-stakes awards ceremony, but it’s equally significant to all of us. Every single thing you’ve gone through in life – every high, every low, and everything in between – has all led you to the moment you’re experiencing right now.
This means that you are exactly where you need to be to get to where you want to go. It’s just a matter of taking one new step in the right direction, and another, and another.
So, never assume that you’re stuck with the way things are right now. You aren’t.
Things can change if you want them to, at any age. Life changes every single moment, and so can YOU!
The key is to embrace these powerful realities and not procrastinate…
