How Bad Do You Want It?

Somewhere you got this idea that you were going to make a change. Maybe your clothes started fitting tighter, things began to get harder, or your doctor made some recommendations based on your last exam. It could be that you just want to look better and to be happier. It doesn’t really matter where the dream came from, you dreamed it. You imagined what life could be like on the other side of the hill, and now you want that life.

It could end there. Just a dream. Ethereal, not real. Something for other people, not you. Or you can decide, that it could be you. You could take action, because that is what you want. A thing that you want more than anything else. To be different. To be better. To make the image in your head a reality.

By taking action, you start to become your future self. The dream is no longer a dream but a future reality. Yes, it takes work, determination, and courage. But if this is what you truly want, more than anything else, then you will be fine doing whatever it takes to get there, because that is what your future self does.
