I recently returned from a trip “not feeling well”
I waited a day, then another and then another and still another
hoping it would pass
finally I thought
“I should go to the doctor”
so I did
I felt measurably better after the first day
of following the suggested course of treatment
and so on and so on until I was, well, well
so why did I wait?
how much time did I waste NOT feeling well?
how much did I NOT accomplish, experience, enjoy
while I was waiting and hoping?
I had an issue
there was a remedy for that issue
I followed doctors orders
I was my old self in a few days
would nature have taken its course eventually?
and maybe it would have gotten worse
maybe even measurably so
the cost of inaction
wasn’t just “feeling unwell”
it was lack of joy, it was lack of freedom, it was everything
it was time to take action
cue the singing angels
dawn breaks over the rockies
the divine wisdom and experience
of a trained professional
not one that you know
but one that you hire
is ALWAYS the best and fastest path
to getting you where you want to go
whether it’s a doctor to help make you well enough to play with your kids
or a mentor to help you create that juicy life you’ve been meaning to have
are YOU waiting for something to pass or happen on it’s own?
what is THAT costing you today?
what about tomorrow?
what about a year from now?
don’t wait for YOUR life to happen
