If you're human at all you have experienced this: you thought of something you could do, maybe a fleeting thought, and then decided it was best not to. That night, or some odds weeks after you're lying in bed asking yourself why you didn't have the balls to do what you actually wanted to do. Chances are that you're still thinking about it years later. I challenge you to count the times you regretted not doing something, now count the times you regretted actually doing something instead. I know that 90% of you have way more things you regret not doing than things you regret actually doing. This is called FOMO, the fear of missing out.
FOMO is a horrible thing, it gets you dwelling on the what-ifs, dwelling in the past. And dwelling in the past prevents you from moving forward. Don't hold back. Most times you jump in and make that impulse decision and it goes bad, you'll just brush it off. Don't hold back. Everyone has two or three thoughts/ideas a day that are life-changing, or that could change the world and they do nothing about them. Think about all the things you think about while dozing off in bed. But we often choose to forget about them.
Let me tell give you some quick numbers. There is a 1 in 400 quadrillion chances that you made it to be born to be alive today. That's 400 followed by 15 zeros, and that's not accounting for other possible lineages and all the other sperms, which bump up the zeroes to 2,685,000. Don't try to understand this. Know that all the possible odds of you being born were against you. And you made it. Congrats, you have 80 years to make an impact, how old are you now? Why are you not doing everything you possibly can? Don't hold back!
I don't know about you but this pumps me up! I can't talk about something like this and not jump out of my seat to live my day. You don't have many days to waste, and you don't have the luxury of waiting for that opportunity to come back. Seize it now!
Don't hold back!
Hi, I'm Matthew, my mission is to spread knowledge about motivation, productivity, and enabling people to achieve the best that they can be! I have a vast background in psychology and a passion for self-improvement. I literally can't remember a time when I didn't have a psychology book in my hands. On top of that, I've traveled around the world from a very young age, and seen many different courses of life, forming friendships with highly successful people, as well as people who are willing to do anything to make ends meet. My own life took me down a roller coaster of highs and lows, and I'm forever grateful that I've been able to overcome everything it threw at me. Now I want to take the opportunity to give back, and help others learn tools and methods for becoming who they were born to be!
