Most people wait for something bad to happen before taking action. Why? Something bad happening in your life reminds you of how precious life is. This reminder is what helps you to remember to take action.
This past Sunday, 1/26/20, will go down as a historic day in history. We lost one of the greatest athletes of all time, Kobe Bryant. There were also 8 other victims in this horrible helicopter crash.
I was on a flight from MCO to San Francisco when the news broke. I landed in San Francisco to a text from a friend saying “RIP Kobe”. Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind was Kobe was probably in the news for losing a 1v1 in basketball or something to that extent. I got curious, so I went to google and put in his name. I was devastated at the news I saw. I couldn’t believe what I was looking at. There was no way the news could be real. To say I was shocked is an understatement.
We are all on different parts of our journey. No two people are alike. No two people will agree on everything. Don’t let any of this make you miss out on living every day with purpose. You never know what could happen. The world isn’t always fair.
Here is one thing I would love for people to take away from this tragic event. Stop waiting.
Stop waiting for something bad to happen in your life before you want to change.
Stop waiting for a New Year to come around where you will then magically change.
Stop waiting to tell the people you care about that you care about them.
Stop waiting to repair that relationship that is long overdue.
Stop waiting to take control of your life and your path to financial independence.
Stop waiting for your actions to match your words. Talk the talk and walk the walk.
