We all have wants and needs but are we really ready to do what it takes? In this information age there is no shortage of experts, coaches, mentors and a myriad of ways to get the answer to how do I achieve X.
So if the answers are so easily and readily available why don't we just go out and get what we want? As a species we have learned to count on others for far too much. It can come free and typically with no effort. Excuses for not taking action are quickly adopted. Acceptance of not having or not having more is the norm and we slowly spiral down or remain in a state of no change on cruise control.
Many people set goals, work hard, change and adjust to their new circumstances and experience success. Of course these are the 'LUCKY' ones. We know that's not true. They just wanted it badly enough to work for it.
So if others can do it and the help is there for the asking why are you not moving forward? Maybe it's because you don't want to. You need to ask yourself, what is holding me back from having what I want?
Is it simply not knowing what you want? There are many resources to help you figure out what you want. So that's not it. What is keeping you where you are?
When you can answer that single question you may find the path to where you want to be is right in front of you and it's time to take the first step.
As Lewis Carroll said:
'If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there.'
As The Rolling Stones sang:
'You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, well you just might find, you get what you need.'

I didn't start out to write this weeks email about me personally, but sometimes it just goes that way.
My Father passed away when I was eighteen years old. He was only 51. While not with me physically, he has always been a part of my life. A good and just influence.
He danced to his own music and lived his life as short as it was, his way. Helping people, both friends and strangers, while never expecting anything in return.
He set a fine example of what it means to be a good person and will be remembered as someone who truly cared about others. More importantly, he took action to make their lives better.
I will think of him fondly today, trust I am living a life that honours him and will continue to pass his spirit on to my children and grandchildren.
As written on his tombstone.
'He was never too small for big jobs nor too big for small jobs.'
Something we can all aspire to live by.
It's NOT OK to wait any longer. You can deny it all you want.
