Get Up BEFORE You Go!

You have to GET UP before you can GO!
So you're going to take a little trip, right?
Where are you going? Are you going down to the corner grocery to pick up a loaf of bread? Are you going on a "special vacation" that you have had planned out for months? Are you having to make a mad dash to get to a loved one that is in a hospital elsewhere following a horrific accident?
Wow, take a moment and just look at the difference in those three trips that I just mentioned. All three are trips that require action in order to complete the journey but all three are absolutely different in the IMPORTANCE of completing the journey.
Wouldn't you agree?
That's what we call your "WHY". In other words, WHY is it important for you to get to your destination? Loaf of bread? Special vacation with life-long memories? Emergency?
And, yes, I'm going to continue with the same analogy of taking a trip to that of you working toward reaching your goals and dreams that I've been using the past few days.
With your goals and dreams WHAT IS YOUR "WHY"?
Why is it important to you to reach your goals and dreams?
But, you know what? I probably should stop asking you WHY it's important and rather ask it this way: "BASED ON YOUR ACTIONS, what do you SHOW about how important this is to you?"
Regardless of how much planning you've done and regardless of how much you SAY about how important this is to you, the REALITY of all of this is shown in what you DO!
You can have the best laid plans in order and have the best intentions but, if you NEVER GET UP and GET MOVING you will still end up going nowhere!
Remember, "Staying where you are will NEVER take you where you want to be!"
Here's one final interesting question: "Are you treating that 'life-long memory vacation' or that 'emergency' trip just as you would for that loaf of bread?"
Think about it. I mean REALLY think about it and, as you do, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
