Pull the Trigger Already!
Have you ever had a great idea and just sat on it and then maybe a few months or years down the road see someone else prospering with the same idea? That's one of the worst feelings in the world. Often times the excuses that we make on why we can't do something are not really that legitimate. The old saying goes, where there is a will... there is a way. The truth of the matter is that if you really want to do something, you will find a way to do it come hell or high water. As you move through the process of executing your goals, you will find that many of the obstacles you thought would keep you from doing what you want were mere imaginations in your head. That isn't to say that accomplishing your goals will be easy, but if you show up to the game and cultivate an indomitable determination, you'll find you can overcome almost anything. The question then becomes, how bad do you want it? Sometimes you have to be willing to be lonely, look foolish, out of touch with reality, and downright ugly to get what you are after. But on the other side of that hardship is the tremendous satisfaction of walking in the reality of your accomplished vision. Stop telling people what you are going to do and simply do it. There's no use in holding a gun if you never pull the trigger.
