There’s dreaming, and then there’s doing.

There’s dreaming, and then there’s doing.

You can get the best advice in the world, but you still have to do.

You can visualize and imagine all the ways your journey can play out, but you don’t know until you dare to do.

You can plan your days and schedule your life down to the minute, but there’s no time like now to do what needs to be done.

You can promise yourself that this time, you swear, nothing’s going to stand in your way, but it’s all just an excuse until you finally do.

You can watch videos online of others doing things—amazing, inspiring things—but that’s them, not you.

You can buy all the gear and read all the instructions, but that’ll just make you the best-dressed non-doer out there.

Doing’s not that easy, we tell ourselves. Doing takes time, and skill, and money, and everything that we don’t have enough of, right?

No.

Doing takes courage.

Courage to follow your own best advice.

Courage to stop just visualizing and turn your ideas into realities.

Courage to break out of your scheduled life to do what you feel within you.

Courage to decide excuses aren’t good enough for you.

Courage to live your dreams.

The courage is within you.
