If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
by Jonathan Hilton
There are two ways to go with this answer, you can say if something hasn’t happened yet then it is not ever going to happen and you could lose the few strands of hope you have left for accomplishing the task.
Or the other answer can be that the time must be ripe for whatever it is that you have brewing, and dream of achieving, and the only thing you have to lose is more time passing before you achieve whatever it is you want to accomplish.
THE TIME IS NOW!
I believe that there is no time like right now to do whatever it is you have been thinking of achieving. This doesn’t mean that you have to do it all today, but start moving in that direction and you will be surprised where you may end up as you approach your goals.
There may be seemingly insurmountable obstacles in your path, but even the tallest mountain can only be crossed by taking the first initial steps. That is the way of the world and if you long to achieve something you can do it.
When you look at the part of the question, yet, it would seem to indicate that you have
been thinking of doing something for a long time, maybe it seems financially unrealistic, or seems to take away from your family time, or some other reason.
There will always be a reason if you want to avoid accomplishment. There are lots of people who have accomplished great things after a lot of struggle.
Historically speaking you can find many who persevered and contributed much to the world at a much more significant age. Leanardo da Vinci was drawing significant sketches as he enjoyed his sixties, Michelangelo created sculptures of great talent in his eighties, Winston Churchill traveled the world and contributed to society right up until his death at the age of ninety and Leo Tolstoy wrote novels as his seventies rolled by. So it has been proven that it is never too late to achieve anything.
Picture Your Success
The most important factor to hold on to when you are seeking achievement is that you have a clear picture of what it is you want to accomplish, then the path will open up to you as you investigate how to make this thing happen.
Often it is not the destination but the journey that provides the most fertile ground for growth and contentment and if you never get started you will never experience any of it.
All it seems that you have to lose is the regret of never knowing if you could have achieved your goal or desire or not. How many people go to their grave with regrets about what they never tried? How many allowed a failure or twenty nine failures or a hundred failures stop them from learning and accomplishing what they might accomplish if they only tried just one more time. I think that in the end there is nothing to lose, except doubt and regret.
