Make It Happen

There is one thing holding each of us back from achieving our goals; what is it?

It’s you. It’s me. It’s a part of us that isn’t a part of us. As Steven Pressfield says in his book Do the Work, it’s Resistance.

I’ll tell you what it is: it’s a bitch. It’s always in front of us holding us back, telling us it won’t work, that we can’t do it, that it’ll never pay, that we should just give up our dreams, lay down and die. And it’s also bullshit.

What’s really standing in the way?


There’s nothing holding you back. There’s nothing holding me back. Your dreams are in front of you waiting for you to take them. And why not take them? Isn’t that what you’ve been waiting for all these years while you’ve been working your butt off to pay the bills? Why waste another day? Do it NOW. Take it NOW. Its not going to wait around forever. Some day you’ll look back and say, “I wonder what would have been different if I had?” I’ll tell you what would have been different: you would have been happier. You would have been fulfilled. Your dreams would have come true.

So why wait? Why listen to the voice in your head telling you it isn’t going to work? It IS going to work. You already have what you need—your hands, your head, and a dream which consists of ample inspiration and motivation to see itself fulfilled.

What are you still sitting there for?
