I didn’t realize ultimately until today just how much time I waste. In fact, I think us humans as a whole are just natural procrastinators who would like things handed to them rather than having to get up and work for it. I don’t mean that to be offensive, considering I myself would love to lay in my bed and have a butler named Chives feed me grapes while I curl up under my satin sheets and read a romance novel. However, in order to achieve what you want, whether it be your own personal butler, or wealth, or some level of fame or just good, plain ol’ success, you have to work for it.
Fact of the matter is; you either go hard or go home.
Either you get up and you go out and get what you want, or you stay in bed and waste the rest of your life merely dreaming about what you want. I know I personally like to imagine myself on talk shows, Ellen specifically, talking about the movie adaptation of my best-selling novel and how Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate are currently fighting for the rights to distribute it.
I can sit and imagine it, and re-imagine it, and think it over as many times as I want, but unless I get up and get to writing it, none of that is going to happen. Despite what your parents or peers might say, your dreams can, in fact, come true. Think of them more as goals. Write them down on your mirror, or on a poster board in giant letters and keep it on your door. That way you’re reminded every single day of what you so badly want.
So don’t delay. Do it now. Not in an hour from now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. There’s never going to be a better time than right this very second.
The clock is ticking.
