STOP procrastinating your life. START living it!

I know life is filled with excuses and so often we sink deep into them. Just like sitting in an easy chair, the longer you sit the harder it is to get up. We never want to challenge ourselves do we? We like our comfort zones, don't we? Hell, they're a lot easier, a lot safer and require no effort. And we always feel safer with the predictable outcome. It's the uncertainty, that "leap of faith", that risk, that chance that we shy away from.
 
A body in motion stays in motion; a body at rest stays at rest. And don't we have eternity to stay at rest when we're six feet under the ground? Do you want to go down with regrets of what you didn't do? If your life most people you play the "what if" game. "What if" I take a new job and it doesn't work out? "What if" I break up my unhappy marriage and I end up alone? "What if" I take a chance at love and get my heart broken? "What if" I sign up at a fitness club and I never end up going because "what if" it's just to hard to fit into my schedule. You know what I'm talking about! STOP RIGHT NOW THE "WHAT IF" GAME! You know why? YOU always lose when you play this game.
Let me tell you what you lose. You lose a chance....a chance of love, a chance of personal fulfillment, a chance for spiritual growth, a chance for a friend, a chance at LIFE! I know people are so scared of CHANGE! There's that word that can send shivers down a person's spine. We are all creatures of habit, aren't we? And habits are hard to overcome, aren't they? "I'll quit smoking next year" . "I can't go on a diet now because of the holidays". "I don't have time to look for that new job." "I don't want to start a new relationship; I've just been burned by the last one". It goes on and on!
 
Let me tell you something; your never going to start-kick your life in that easy chair. The hardest part is just getting your ass off of it! Think of all the possibilities awaiting you outside your door! You'll never regret taking a chance. How else would you know? And you don't want to play that "What If" game do you? By the way, there is even a worse game (believe it or not) than that one! It's the "If Only" game. "If only" I ended my marriage ten years ago I might have been with someone by now that would be making me happier. "If Only" I got more education I could have had a much better job by now". "If Only" I started my diet a month earlier I would look good and be fit for the holidays.
So what are you going to do? You can take your life in your hands OR watch it go by on a screen. I don't want to watch the movie. I want to be IN the movie! I want to be the leading star!
