I know your secret. I know all about that dead body; the one that’s starting to stink. You know the body I’m talking about. You remember it every time you look in the mirror and you think to yourself, “I should be so much further ahead in my life than I am.”
If you’re saying that to yourself; you’re exactly right. You could be much, much further ahead than you are. That “dead body” that stinks represents the person you could have become; the version of yourself that could have been, if only you would have fulfilled the goals and dreams you have for yourself. Due to your inaction, that potential person that could have been is left to decay.
When you’re young you might only occasionally get a whiff of the stench in the form of a job you despise, coming up short for a promotion, or looking at your credit card statement and see the balance growing each month.
When you’re young the smell doesn’t seem overbearing because you may think you still have ample time to fulfill those dreams. While that is true; what did you do yesterday to fulfill your goals? For that matter, what have you done today? Chances are you’ll do the exact same thing tomorrow, next week, and next year. That’s why as we age, the “smell” grows stronger and more pungent. You may get a whiff of it when you look at your health and barely recognize the person that you are, or you are in a relationship that could be so much more fulfilling but continues to disappoint, or the bank account that never seems to grow. Maybe it’s the lifestyle you’re living that is so far away from what you wanted for your life. But what really brings that “smell” is the feeling your life is not what you had hoped for or wanted for yourself.
Regardless of how old you are, and how strong the smell is, you can do something about it. You can start to live your life with purpose. You can start to work on your goals and dreams and bring them to reality.
There is nothing you can do about yesterday. You do; however, have complete control of the here-and-now and depending on what you do with it will determine what future is waiting for you.
