Stop It Already.

Stop waiting on the crowd to believe you. Stop waiting on your dreams until life starts being fair.

Stop waiting to have enough money to feel completely secure.

Stop waiting for someone else to lead the way forward.

Stop waiting for the skeptics to be fair.

Stop waiting for bad things to not happen to you.

The truth is that doing big things requires a lot of heart and soul. Guts — that’s the primary differentiator between winners and losers.

Not brains. Not brilliance. Not being in the right place at the right time.

Just letting go of “no” and “later” and starting out on an expedition of possibilities.

Trying. Pushing. Leading. Fighting. Finding. Sweating. Caring. Working.

And that all starts with stopping the stuff that limits you from being amazing.

Stop what stops you.

Is it fear? Or overindulgence? Anger?  Or complacency?

If you want to go places, if you have stop stopping and start heading towards where you want to end up.

Or else, you’re stopped. Stale. Dying. Soon dead.

All that changes when you decide to stop stopping?

What’s that for you?
