The trouble is, you think you have time.
Time to get in shape.
Time to take that dream vacation.
Time to make money.
Time to discover your life’s purpose.
Time to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships.
Time to share your unique gift with the world.
Time for yourself.
Time to build your heart-centered business.
Time to write that book that’s inside of you.
You get the idea…
The trouble is, you think you have time to do whatever it is you want to do. So you keep putting it off.
If it does, you’re not alone.
This thought process plagues everyone, to a greater or lesser degree.
The thought “I have time” is one of the most detrimental thoughts you can entertain.
Thinking you have time, keeps you from taking action in the present moment.
It keeps you from executing on your goals and dreams.
The thought, “I have time” has killed more dreams than failure ever did.
If you allow yourself to be deluded by this thought long enough, you’ll eventually find yourself at the end of your life, never having done the things you most wanted to do.
So how do you counter the thought of “I have time”?
You do it by cultivating the thought of…
I’m out of time. My time is up. I have to act right now.
And while you should choose to do something that moves you closer to your goal or dream, ultimately it really doesn’t matter what you do. You just need to do something.
Why? Because the practice is about breaking the thought pattern of “I have time”, and replacing it with the thought of “I only have right now, this moment”.
Breaking the thought pattern breaks the behavioral pattern. And that’s what you want to do; change your behavior.
It’s about waking up to the fact that human life is finite, and right now is really all you’re guaranteed.
This is it.
This exercise conditions you to be a do-it-now kind of person.
It instills a sense of urgency within you.
Like all successful people have done, you’ve got to condition yourself to think that you don’t have time.
This is really the only way to get things done.
This practice develops focus, concentration and self-discipline.
The first time I did this, I noticed an marked increase in my production levels.
Just from a simple shift in thinking. I was sold!
