You're never going to be ready
You're never going to get it all together
It's never going to be perfect
You just have to decide
To go all in, anyway
You have to decide that you are ready enough
That you are worthy now
Of having what you want
That you are deserving now
Of having what you want
That you are enough now
You have to decide
Which means actually going for it
Actually doing the thing you want to do
The thing that you dream about doing
The thing that you don't want to tell others you dream about doing because it just seems so freaking out there
And like who the heck are you to do that thing
That's the thing you need to do
To go all in on the thing you want
To go all in on YOU!
You are the thing that matters
You are the magic bullet you have been searching for
The thing that you have been seeking all this time
It's always been you
It will always be you
Because you, my friend, are the only one that can do it.
Take a look around and ask yourself
Are things the way you want them to be?
Are things the way you dreamed them to be?
Are things the way that you hoped they would be?
If yes, awesome.
Keep doing what you are doing.
But if no, just a little bit, it's time to get serious.
And admit that maybe, just a little bit, or perhaps a real lot you have been denying yourself from doing the very thing that deep down inside, you know, and you know that you know, will change everything.
That will unleash your magic
The thing that you want so damn bad it actually hurts
It brings tears to your eyes when you think about what your life would be like if things would just be this certain way.
Yeah, that's the thing.
The thing you really want.
The thing that lights you up.
The thing that your dreams are made of.
The thing that changes everything for you, on a dime.
Now ask yourself.
Are you willing to go for it?
To go all in, on YOU?
To really lay it on the line?
What's the worst that can happen if you go for it and it does not work out?
Is it worth the regret or the guilt or the waiting around game you are playing right now, pretending that your life is okay the way that it is even though things are not even close to what it is you really want?
But, hey, who are you to dream bigger?
You should be grateful for what you have.
You should appreciate all the things that you have.
Yep, you're right, you should just give up on your dreams and continue to live your mediocre life. Because hey, it's just too damn hard to go all in.
To believe in you when nobody else does (except that I do)
To remember that you are good enough, just as you are.
To remember that you are worthy, just as you are.
That you can have all you want and you can choose to drop the struggle at any time.
That you can choose to let it go.
That you can choose to surrender.
That you can choose to unleash your power from within in.
But then, you would have to let go of all the shit excuses that you have been telling yourself.
That you don't have what it takes
That you are not good enough.
That you are not worthy enough.
That you are not smart enough.
That you are not far along enough.
Oh, wait, those are all freaking lies.
Lies designed to keep you stuck.
Lies designed to keep up the facade of the illusions around you.
But that's, it, that's all it is.
A smoke screen.
You are never going to be ready.
You are never going to have it all together.
It's never going to be perfect.
That is unless you decide that it is.
Because the only time that actually even exists in the hole big scope of things, is right here, right now.
Always has been.
Always will be.
Are you ready to go all?
And live the life you dream about, the one you wish you had?
