What’s Stopping You?

What’s your story?

Everyone seems to have some story of why they aren’t where they want to be yet.  Excuses, reasons, circumstances beyond your control…whatever you want to call them that is precisely the reason why you don’t have what you want.

You are living your story of what’s stopping you.  You are focusing on why it’s not possible to be your best.  You are living in the past.

You are waiting for the perfect opportunity.

I will be happy when ____________.  Fill in the blank

I will lose the weight when _________.  Fill in the blank

I will be perfect when ____________.  Fill in the blank

Most people fill in the blank with things like…

when the kids go to college or when I make more money or when things settle down or when I win the lottery or when the holidays are over or a million other things.

Let me tell you one thing.  Nothing will ever be perfect for you to begin your journey.

Life is a constant series of challenges…many beyond your control.

You can keep waiting for the perfect time when the sun shines brightly, butterflies fill the sky while U2 plays “it’s a BEAUTIFUL Day!” in the background but it’s not going to happen like that.

Stop lying to yourself.  Be honest.

Look at what’s important to you and what you really want.

Then ask yourself this:

What will happen to my dreams and goals if I keep waiting?

What will my life be like?

If you are really honest with yourself, these questions will unleash something deep within you.

Something disturbing and painful.

A sense of dissatisfaction. An urgency that something must be done.

Now go do it.

Oh wait…you can’t because there is something else…

What else is stopping you?


Comfort Kills

Comfort Destroys

Comfort is the enemy of Living Greatly.

Neale Donald Walsch said it best…


It is so easy to tell you what to do but so difficult to do it.

FEAR & COMFORT are one and the same.

Take the first step…It’s a BIG one but you’re life will never be the same.

March BOLDLY through all challenges, Live in Gratitude, Be Kind and Give Your Best in all You Do!

You can have, be and do A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G as long as you BREAKTHROUGH Comfort and take the LEAP! Anything is possible.

If you want to take the first step and make this your best year ever then click here before it’s too late.

Live Greatly,

    Awesome post!!! If people would change their thoughts and beliefs they might be ending up living life at the fullest, and excuses would be minimum.
    Keep posting Billy

    Stretching that COMFORT ZONE is a challenge for EVERYONE! It doesn’t matter how “put together” someone may appear on the outside… The only difference is that person made a CHOICE to get up off their butt and DO SOMETHING in the direction of their goal! It’s about CHOOSING to TAKE THAT FIRST STEP!

    Love the post B! 🙂

    I love the quote “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” I read that quotable magnet everyday on my refrigerator and it puts a whole lot into perspective. You always state it best, “Challenge creates change” and very few people ever challenge themselves when they have that security blanket of comfort wrapped around them. Great post Billy!
