Have you ever used the phrase “When ________, then _________…”?
Let me give you an example:
WHEN things in my life calm down and I can focus, THEN I’ll lose the weight and get in shape.
WHEN I have a little more money, THEN I’ll invest in myself.
This phrase is the dream killer and can be applied around any area of life – weight loss, fitness, career goals, parenting, literally anything.
If you’ve ever used this phrase, you’re certainly not alone. Most people with any type of dream or goal do, but what you need to acknowledge is that it’s garbage. It’s an excuse that holds you back from achieving and from living the life you deserve.
So I challenge you – what is one WHEN _____, THEN _____ area of your life that you can OWN?
By own I mean take control over. Right now. Today.
Because you know WHEN _____, THEN _____ isn’t reality and it’s the killer of dreams.
When we take ownership of our lives, regardless of the situation, we build confidence, empowerment, and the ability to charge through any obstacle and achieve any goals.
Use what you perceive as an obstacle to create results – to navigate, to find a way. You will become stronger for it.
