16. Ramadan. 1441 – A Lesson in Follow-Through

Welcome back darlings! Thanks for tuning in for the 16th day.

Not gonna lie, I almost forgot that I had to post this – I’ve enjoyed a relaxing day of bingeing Sy-Fy. I’ve mentioned previously the importance of following your dreams or “going for it” but doing so in a productive manner. Well, I meant all of that.

Have you ever stopped to wonder why sometimes some people are super successful entrepreneurs or as like to call them “people who are super good at just going for it” and why you’re just stuck where you are – never finishing anything you start? Samsies. If you’re anything like me then you’re a victim of your own follow-through or lack of thereof.

It’s super easy to imagine what you wanna do in the coming years and how cool it would be to have a million different titles under your belt. I also know that it can be super intimidating when you have to begin thinking of how to actually act on and set those plans in motion, hence the lack of follow-through. You get into the mindset of being comfortable where you already are, and then your ambition gets killed which makes it all the more easy to stop and never finish anything you were once so proud to start. Contrary to popular opinion, one minor setback can make or break you. But it shouldn’t.

Nevertheless, the point of tonight wasn’t to dwell on our common miseries, but to be a reminder that despite everything leading up to today, you’re more than that. You’re more than your minor setbacks. You’re much more than the projects you started and never finished. You woke up, again; therefore, you were given another chance to do just that – finish what you started, so don’t waste that gift – many others haven’t.

So long as you keep waking up, then you are given the chance to seek better, do better, and be better, so make it happen. Become your own follow-through. Be honest with yourself about what you want and go for it.

As always,

Keep living, loving, and laughing.
