The Cost of Doing Nothing

Wishing for Something More

You’re sitting at work reading this, wishing you could take that awesome trip to Italy that your friend just posted all over Instagram. Wishing that you could start your own business or at least work from home. Basically wishing for a dream life.

But not doing anything about it.

How many dreams have you dismissed because you don’t think it’s realistic?

Your fears about money quickly bring you back to earth.

I’d ask you to trust me on this, but I’ll let you decide for yourself. Which of these futures do you want?

Which future will you choose- doing something or doing nothing?

Confidence and Clarity

You decided that your current job in consulting was too stressful- long hours, lots of travel, and never having time for yourself. After weeks of journaling and texting your best friend 500 times, you decided to pursue your dream of designing websites. You spent six months saving up for your expenses and then applied to Code School. A year later, you have a new job that you look forward to going to most days- because let’s be honest, I don’t care how awesome your job is, no one enjoys every single day of work.

Your job challenges you and yet you feel confident in your work. You took a pay cut when you switched careers, but it’s been worth it to enjoy your work and to go to dinner with your friends, even on a week night! You spend money on what really matters to you, like the trip to Spain you’re planning for next summer. You’re even setting new goals- a promotion to senior developer and buying your first house.

Resigned to Your Fate

Or, a year later, you could be sitting at the same desk, thinking the same thoughts.

Yeah, your job sucks, but everyone’s job sucks, right? You put your head down and continue working. You see another friend’s wedding and honeymoon to France on Instagram. You sigh, if only that was me!

It doesn’t have to be that way!

If you’re anything like me, the idea of being stuck in the same blah situation a year from now is the best motivation to change. My challenge to you is to start exploring what you want to accomplish, and what you need to do to accomplish it. Take it one step at a time, and get started today!

If you want confidence and clarity on reaching your goals, I’d love to offer you a free coaching info session.

You’ll walk away with an idea of what you need to do to make long-lasting changes in your life and how to anticipate how money could prevent you from reaching your goals.

Until next week,
