Start Where you are! Start Today!

You know, a lot of people think that in order to change their lives they need to be somewhere else, they need to have something more, they need to be able to do a lot more than they’re currently doing. No you don’t. 

You know how most human beings are pretty much capable of walking, right? The general population, most people, are capable of walking yet at some point in our lives we couldn’t hold our neck up, we couldn’t sit, we couldn’t crawl, we had to go through certain stages in order to be able to eventually walk.

Do What You Can

Do what you can with what you got and that’s the best you could do. Life changes, transformations, all the same way. Some people just want to become a different version of themselves not knowing that in order to go from where you are to where you want to be you must learn how to sit, you must learn how to crawl, you must learn how to walk, and trust me you must learn how to fall. Some people do it, some people don’t. 

A lot of people wait for the circumstances to be just right to be perfect before they start taking steps and actions towards their desired goals, their hopes, their dreams, their ambitions. And guess what, that day never ever comes. Because things will never be perfect for you to start.

“Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.”

What if I told you right now, in this moment, that I’m talking to you is the perfect moment for you to begin where you are, use what you have, use what you got, and start making changes and steps towards that direction? There is no better time than now. If your mind is telling you that Monday is better than today it’s a lie that you choose to believe. Because how many times do Mondays have to come and go without any type of change for you to realize that it doesn’t exist on that day? It exists in this moment. How many more times do we have to say it feels like Groundhogs Day? Oh it’s Monday again. I got to go back to work. Oh thank God, it’s Friday. How many times do you have to watch the same story before you realize that in order to break that story and create a new story that you need a different approach? Start with what you have right now. If you want to go do big things in life it starts with the first step. What do they say? “A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.” Not the 700th step. Yet people want to be at the end of the process without knowing that they got to start somewhere. You got to start somewhere, my friends.

Today is Your Key to Change

So when March 2nd 2025 comes around there are certain things in your life that right now in this moment you want to have accomplished if you start today with what you got and where you’re at and believe that this is not the way the story ends. There is a very high possibility and probability that next year you will have accomplished some of these. Yet, if you keep waiting for the right moment and the circumstance, if you keep waiting for the miracle of inspiration to just turn on inside you and the motivation to do the things you’re currently not doing to just turn on when next year comes around, I promise you that it will not be different than this moment.

“A year from now you will wish you had started today.”

Being a clinician and working with people over a decade I’ve had some people come through a few times some of them are exactly where they were, some of them are even worse than where they were, and they’re still waiting for the day to start. Isn’t that odd? And then they even say like, “man, I wish I would have started back then.” Well, check this out – if you are in the same boat of those individuals who say I wish I would have started back then a year from now, 5 years from now, today, this moment is back then this current moment that I’m talking to you right now in the future will be back then. So if you currently have regrets of the things you didn’t do then and there yesterday, yesteryear, back then, if you don’t change nothing about your life, when the future comes you will still have regrets about this moment. And if you didn’t understand what I said please to God, rewind it and listen again. Because that’s the key to change. 

When you realize the future changes when you change the present moment. If you don’t it won’t. And I can’t make that decision for you, my friends. I wish I could but I’ve learned the limitations of human power. Man, I could sit here and just do my best to inspire a human being to go make some changes and guess what, if there’s a hundred people listening, 5 of them will, 80 of them will try, 50 of them won’t even try. And out of the 80 that try, only the ones that understand what it truly means to be consistent and committed and obsessed with accomplishing those goals and dreams are the ones that are actually going to do it. So despite those low statistics and odds I don’t take it personally because I know human beings are the most stubborn things on the planet Earth, and they all want something they don’t have, but they’re not willing to do the work to get there. And they get bitter and resentful, wondering why life isn’t working out for them. Very peculiar species we are, this human species.
