Torch your Plan B.
Torch your Plan C.
Torch your Plan D.
(In other words, your Plan B is a surefire way to experience the crippling pain of untapped potential.)
Here’s the deal:
You have this dream stirring inside, whispering you during the quiet moments of life, but:
Because it doesn’t matter how much logic you cram into your mind about your Plan B or how amazing your dental benefits are —it’s not what you want deep inside.
One of my most valued and shared quotes —which I’ve done three-hour long training sessions talking about how powerful these 18 words can be, is:
“We are kept from our goal not by obstacles but by a clear path to a lesser goal.”
Please read that again —because it can fundamentally change how you think about your life.
Or, take a quote from my book, Hustlers and Seekers —by psychology professor Rita Stein:
“If our life plans or even just short-term goals are guided by external criteria . . . without a true understanding of what it is that we actually want or what fulfills and satisfies us, then we end up at minimum disconcerted and unhappy, and at worst, with a midlife crisis or severely depressed.”
Ultimately, having a Plan B, C or D ends up killing the non-negotiable urgency you’ll need to:
- Put yourself on the line.
- Make courageous moves.
- Commit 100% to yourself.
- Stop hesitating and execute.
- Get over insecurities and go.
- Stop fantasizing and start living.
- Overcome indecision and paralysis.
Let me ask you:
Would you rather chase a safe Plan B —or feel alive in the pursuit of what you really want?
