“The best way to predict your future is to create it.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
"You can plan life..but that doesn't mean it is going to happen"
Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you. ~ Thomas Jefferson
We all Plan, plan, plan...... Why not just Act, Do, Discover! If we go about our lives continuously planning out everyday and every moment of our lives, then the unexpected joys in life are sure to slip by without notice.
“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” ~ Nora Roberts
Take a day off from all the planning, live in the moment! if your heart desires something at that precise moment, go after it, take the risk and reap the reward. Continue this approach in bigger steps each day and you will not only be amazed by what you discover, but by what presents itself to you and what you present yourself to be!
“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” ~ Leonardo Da Vinci
Now remember, some planning is good, for work, financial, etc.. So don't loose all of your planning skills, but instead substitute in some spontaneity. You can plan out your whole life, but that doesn't mean it is going to happen. And if you did, how boring of a life that would be. I occasionally try to plan out my day, and the one thing I notice it does.... is it takes away all the excitement of LIFE.
“The person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” ~ Albert Einstein
So my message to you is this:
Stop planning so much, and just LIVE - Act, Do, Dream, Discover..
Plan what is necessary for your day, but also Plan to BE Spontaneous at times of the day.
Yes! Leave an hour or two after work or whenever you get time in schedule to just be spontaneous! So if you got to plan, Plan to be spontaneous to whatever you feel like doing when the time arrives.
Have moments each day, each hour of the day to just act ("live") in the moment no matter how big or small it may be, you never know how much it just might change your life...
"If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” ~ Tony Robbins
Instead of always planning, ACT and put into motion what you seek and what you discover...
“Courage is simply the willingness to be afraid and act anyway.” ~ Dr. Robert Anthony
This is how I live each day... Leave it all out on the table and have no regrets...
"Once more into the fray...
Into the last good fight i'll ever know.
Live and die on this day...
Live and die on this day..."
“We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.” ~ Stevie Wonder
