Over the weekend I ran into an old friend who I had not seen in a while. While talking, he reminded me of a conversation that we had about a year and a half ago. He said that he wished he lived in a warm area of the country, and I simply responded with a “Well, why don’t you?” He gave a series of excuses at the time, but over the next few weeks he thought about it more and moved to AZ and now loves it. He credits my question as the thing that got him thinking why not?
It has me thinking about why people don’t do what they want to do? Yes, there are some real reasons that someone might not be able to move, to have kids, to get a new job, or find a new place to live, but I wonder if people just give up there and don’t actually find a way to get past those limitations. Sometimes it just takes a leap of faith, other times it takes some serious planning.
What is something that you once wished for that you were able to achieve? What do you ‘wish’ for now and what is holding you back from achieving it?
