One of the worst things that you could ever do to yourself is to constantly say “not yet.” You may be thinking, “Well, we live in a time where instant delivery Amazon packages as well fifteen-minute pizza deliveries are the reality. How can you tell me with a straight face that I’m always telling myself not yet?”
When it comes to the small stuff, I’m sure you have no problems trying to get stuff as quickly as possible. However, the problem is life involves a lot more things than just ordering pizza. If only things were that simple and easy.
The truth is when it comes to the heavy lifting in our lives, and I’m talking about major life revelations that can change drastically the direction of our lives, we keep saying to ourselves, “not yet.”
It’s not like we don’t know the answer. It’s not like we’re not frustrated with where we are. Those things are pretty obvious. We know that there is a better alternative to the kind of life we are living. We know that we’re capable of so much more. We know that the majority of us are living far below our fullest potential.
We know all of that but we keep coming up with the same answer – “not yet.” The reason for this, of course, is a simple case of fear. Make no mistake, as frustrated and as unhappy as you may be with certain areas of your life, when it comes to actually doing something about it, you get cold feet. I really can’t blame you because you are like the majority of people out there.
There are so many people out there who are bitching, moaning, and complaining day in and day out about what’s wrong with their life. They focus on what’s missing. They focus on what’s inadequate. They focus on what’s defective. They go on and on and on.
In fact, it’s very easy to walk away with the conclusion that these people have figured out the problem because they have described it so clearly on a day-to-day basis but what’s going on? What really is happening? They’re bitching and moaning but they’re refusing to lift a finger to do it because they are stuck and they are happy about it.
I know if you were to say that to these people, they’ll probably try to slap the taste out of your mouth. They really would. They would say to you, “How can you say that I’m happy in this abusive relationship? How can you say with a straight face that I’m happy in this worthless job that I have? How can you tell me that I’m happy with my disabilities? This is hell!
They can tell you that but you just only need to look at how they’re living their lives and you can quickly get the fact that as unacceptable as their situation may be to them, at some level or other, they have accepted it. They’d rather chose the hell that they know than the potential hell they might find themselves in later on if they make the wrong move. They’re paralyzed of making the wrong choice. That’s really what’s going on.
Until people realize that they are held hostage by their obsession about past mistakes as well as their unrealistic worries about a future that has yet to happen, nothing’s going to change. They’re always going to remain stuck in neutral. Try as hard as they might, they end up in the same place.
What if I told you that you can unleash the power of your ability to look at the present moment and be at the present moment to get out of that situation? What if I told you that by simply focusing on the present as it exists now, you can lay the groundwork for a better tomorrow for yourself and your loved ones?
Please understand that none of this is easy. It’s hard precisely because it’s going to require you to change your mindset. Let me tell you, the hardest thing people can go through is not necessarily being slapped around and going through some sort of physical ordeal or punishment. Physical wounds do heal.
What people have a problem with is mental change. That hurts even worse. Physical wounds heal but mental change is much harder and that’s why people are so afraid. That’s why they remain stuck. They’d rather stick with the hell they know than the hell they don’t know. That’s why they don’t want to go out on a limb.
