Live your life! Don't be scared! Don't wait for perfect!

Live your life! Don't be scared! Don't wait for perfect!

By John Lechner

Stop marking time or saving for a rainy day. Live your life!

Recently I heard a story about a couple with conflicting priorities. One wanted to put every spare dollar on the mortgage. The other wanted to live, to travel and to explore.

Most of us work crazy hours, sometimes even on a 24/7 roster. That is cool if you are chasing a dream or saving for a holiday, a new experience or a life goal. 

But I don't think it's cool if you take every spare dollar and put it on your mortgage, so that one day, you wont have a mortgage and one day you can travel. Excuse the language but that is a dumb plan.

Yes you need to have a bit put away. But you can't stop living today because you are worried about tomorrow.

I think Gary Vee said it best "You're gonna die".

So take that risk, follow your dream, plan a holiday, but take action TODAY! Not tomorrow, not next week TODAY!.

Because life is short, we don't know how long we have left. My dad died when he was 54, he had a great job, financial security and was busy planning his retirement. Instead of that he lived 4 months past his 54th birthday. 

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

—Dr. Seuss

We all have thing we want to do, a bucket list, a passion to take up or even a new career to pursue. Don't wait for someone else's permission. Don't let someone else's self limiting beliefs hold you back.

Just Do It! Don't be scared. Don't wait for PERFECT!

I will leave you with this quote:

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."

—Harvey Fierstein

Live your life!
