A moment in time is temporary. They come and they go just like days, minutes hours and weeks do. The weirdest thing about moments is we are so sentimental about them. When was the last time you thought about a minute and though ohhh this is a good minute. This minute is an opportunity this minute could be a good one or a bad one? You didn’t ever think that? Well that is no surprise. Moments on the other hand they’re important to us. They can change everything. It’s important that the moment is right because you don’t want to say or do the wrong thing. You don’t want to upset someone. You don’t want to offend someone. The truth is moments are just like minutes but for some reason when you call it a moment it ads some kind of extra value.
The truth is we all have things we want to achieve. You might not set goals and that is totally up to you but there will be things in your life that you want to achieve whether it be passing NCEA (exams), meeting your favourite celebrities, buying your own car, buying a house, getting a job basically any aspiration you have. If you want to achieve these things you have to take steps to achieve the overall outcome, whatever that outcome might be. You want to save money but you need a pay rise to be able to save. You want to go to a concert but you have to take time off work or school. You want to get a job but you don’t know where to look. You want to move overseas but you cant decide where. All of these situations have a goal but there is something stopping you from making it happen. Most of the time the real thing that is stopping you from getting that one step closer to achieving your goal is just in your head. You often over think things. Sometimes it is as simple as asking the question. You do need to think about how you’re going to ask and not be too over powering but really you do just need to ask.
While there are things you want to achieve there are barriers stopping you from getting started. I urge you to take down the barriers. Be prepared to take a risk. Be prepared to live. Don’t fear the unknown be cause if you don’t try you never will know. What ever challenge you’re facing right now you’ve got the power and the strength to make it out looking towards a brighter future. You write your own destiny and rather than fearing what that destiny might be try to make that destiny more positive than it is right now.
“Don’t wait for the perfect moment, take the moment and make it perfect.”
It’s better to give things a go than to wonder what it could have, should have or might have been. You could be waiting for the rest of your life for that perfect moment… Who knows that perfect moment might not ever come. If you want to you’ve got the opportunity to make the perfect moment. Put it out to the universe. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Don’t be ashamed to try. If you don’t get the answer you were hoping for learn from this experience and apply it to the next situation. Don’t let one no now deter you from trying again in the future. In life you’re likely to experience 10 no’s before someone is willing to give you a shot. This isn’t about your abilities this is about them playing the game safe and unfortunately there is nothing you can do about that. Go live your life. Try new things. Don’t be afraid of what you don’t know. It’s only Tuesday you’ve got 5 more days in the week to get the answer you’re looking for! You’ve got this! Go fourth and conquer.
