“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is today.” –Lao Tzu
Many people spend too much time dwelling on the past or agonizing over the future. This is counterproductive since you can’t change the past nor can you control the future.
As for the future, I tend to like the notion that my actions today dictate where I will be tomorrow and beyond. Good daily habits and moving slowly towards goals will eventually lead you to happiness and fulfillment.
Don’t procrastinate when it comes to pursuing your dreams, no matter how bold. Start today by writing down the thing you’ve always wanted to do, then make a plan to make it happen – it could change your life. Whether your dream is to go back to school, learn how to scuba dive or go backpacking for a year in Asia – it’s never too late to take action.
I’d love to hear stories from readers about how they finally got the courage to chase after a lifelong dream!
