Lifting “Waits!”

Lifting Waits


What are YOU Waiting For?  January 1st?  Next week?  Tomorrow?  Lunchtime?  Etc…  In light of the build up to the new year, this idea is relevant now more than ever!  Gyms, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Shaun T, and Billy Blanks all bank on it.  You know, your new year’s resolution to lose weight, get chiseled, get those washboard abs, the buns of steel, and on and on.  Car dealers hope you’re ready to start the new year with a new set of wheels.  Since you’ve made the decision to earn more money this year than last, banks and other financial institutions vie for those increased earnings.  What else have you “waited” on in your life?  Buying your 1st/dream house?  Living your passion?  Starting a business?  Maybe your “wait” isn’t on this list but I promise you, we’ve all done it with something.  And why do we wait?  What is this imaginary need to set some start date off into the future?  You know that saying which goes, “yesterday is history, tomorrow’s a mystery…?”  Tomorrow is promised to no one.  Often times when we hit that future date, as if we hadn’t waited long enough, we add in one more tomorrow for good measure.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve uttered these words on a Friday, “On Monday morning I’m going on a cleanse, I’m going a month with no TV, no movies, I’ll start my serious workout regimen…etc”  Why wait?  Because I wanted one more day of Reese’s Cups (The perfect candy made in heaven by the way!  Whoever thought to put milk chocolate and peanut butter together…I digress!)  Or I wanted a couple more days of binge watching whole seasons of 24, Homeland, Sons of Anarchy, Scandal(don’t judge me 🙂 ) or a host of other shows which have caught my attention over the years.  Or maybe I was trying to ward off those first-days-back-in-the-gym-pains.  Whatever my reasons, I’m here to tell you they didn’t/don’t matter much.  When it comes to excuses…any will do!  And the same goes for you!

Think of me as your personal trainer and I’m telling you to Lift the “Waits!”  When we wait, it chips away at our belief, our confidence, our resolve.  We keep putting the healthy living on the back burner until next week and before you know it, we’re talking that, “ok, January 1st, new year new me” stuff all over again.  If we keep procrastinating on starting a business, we’ll look up at the clock and 5, 10, 20, 25 years have flown by and we don’t have so much as a domain name for the website for our business.  But still at the job complaining that you want to do your own thing.  What about your book?  I read a statistic recently which said some 80+% of the population has expressed an interest in writing a book but only a few hundred thousand worldwide are published.  If you all were sitting in front of me in a classroom and I told you to raise your hand if you’ve either started to or wanted to write a book, would your hand go up?  Obviously I’m unable to see you right now but I’m sure most of you would have hands raised and heads held low because you know you should have been done already.  As the great Tony Robbins says, “quit ‘should-ing’ all over yourself!”  Nobody can write your book better than you!  Whatever the story or idea…It’s your story, it’s your idea!  Write it!  I’m looking forward to reading it!

Lift the “Waits!”  Ok so now it’s January 1st 2015.  It IS that New Day…that New Year!  What are you going to do?  You said this year is your year.  And you know what, I believe you!  This IS your year!  This year IS my year too!  This year is the only year we have!  Your dream life starts today!  The chiseling of your dream body starts today!  Your successful dream business starts today!  Your best-selling dream book is published today!  We’re Lifting “Waits!”  and I’m here to spot you!  Do it now!  Don’t wait, get started today wherever you are and with whatever you have!  If you act immediately on your ideas and aspirations, I promise you 2015 will be EPIC!  I invite you to join my mailing list.  Stay connected and receive inspirational ideas and information on upcoming empowering events!  Don’t Wait, Click Here Now! 

Happy New Year to You and Yours!
