Why You Should Start Your Journey Today

Have you ever looked in the mirror and said to yourself something like "I should lose weight" or "I should really cut down on all the junk food"?  Although those phrases might sound good, do most of us take action right away?  From what I notice people too often use the word "should" which feels often feels nice because its telling yourself to maybe take a little action but not fully commit to it.  What we need to do is use a different simple word.
Identifying your goals.
For most people identifying what they want to do is the hardest part, many of us will start something then 5 minutes later see no results and try the next "shiny object" idea.  If theres something you love doing then chances are you have the ability to do it even if right now, at this moment you feel as if you don't.  The way to accomplish your idea's and goals are to work at least as hard as the people who are where you want to be and learn from them and their mistakes so you don't make the same mistakes.  I say find something you love because there are plenty of jobs in life that pay a good salary each year, but if they bore you why would you want to do them?  Find something that makes you jump out of bed in the morning, it can be anything, starting a business, having a dream job, helping peoples long as your truly happy and are consistently working at it each and everyday.  Surround yourself with pictures or reminders of the things you want in life, this will make you always remind you why your working your life and keep you pushing for your life.

For me its cars, beautiful places, and spreading knowledge with people that interests me.  Finding the things that drive you in life are one of the most important points to take away from this post, without motivation to get to your goals you have no reason to achieve them, believe me it's worth taking time to write down, find pictures and visualize your goals.
Taking the first step.
The simplest way to change the habit of saying "I should do this" or "should do that" is to switch the word "should" with "need".  Making your goals a necessity in your life will defiantly increase the chances of you working on your goals.  Next time you find yourself saying "I should replace pop with water for a meal today" or "I should read today" replace should with need and WRITE IT DOWN!  In my life I have seen big results in writing my goals down and "needing" to do them each and everyday.
You don't always have to start off with big goals, they are nice to have but if your only goal is make $1,000,000 your most likely going to have trouble without smaller goals to lead up to that $1,000,000.  As I talked about before building momentum is the key to getting anywhere.  The first dollar earned or pound lost will always feel so good and make you see it is possible to live your greatest life and achieve that $1,000,000+ goal.
Let's get to know each other!
