What Keeps You Up At Night?…
by Joseph Ratliff
What keeps you up at night? What would you like to do, if there were no barriers?
Why aren’t you doing it?
I’ve asked this question of many people…and most can’t answer it. Most refer back to “standard” answers like:
- I couldn’t risk doing that right now…I’ve got to pay the bills. (what if you could do what you wanted, AND pay the bills?)
- Maybe I’ll pick that up as a hobby sometime. (what?)
- These are just pipe dreams. I’ve got to keep my “real” job. (J.O.B. = Just Over Broke)
- And on…and on…
If it keeps you up at night, that’s your body’s way of telling you that is what you need to be doing.
So, when the pain finally exceeds the “pleasure” of keeping that standard job (which most people really don’t like)…then it’s time to live.
We each hold inside of us a “person” that wants to come out…and that person inside is ready to deliver to the world something extraordinary.
