Every day you put off your dreams is not pushing your dreams back one day later. Actually, it’s exponential that you’ve pushed them back. ~Les Brown
I got to thinking about this quote trying to figure out what Les Brown meant by “…it’s exponential that you’ve pushed them (your dreams) back.”
Here’s what I’ve come up with:
As you work toward your dreams, the Unseen/Unknown goes to work supporting you, helping you, guiding you, preparing the way for you, bringing events and people and situations together in just the right mix at just the right time for you. It does this to support you taking the next step to make it to your dreams.
So, when you don’t work toward your dreams one day, all that intricate timing and fitting together falls apart and the opportunities and options and breaks and serendipitous and lucky events all evaporate. It takes time and effort and planning and working behind the scenes for the Unseen/Unknown to bring things together again for you.
The kicker is, though, it won’t be the same opportunity, option, lucky break, serendipitous event.
Will it be better than the one that would have come along if you had kept on keeping on? Who knows?
In my opinion, it’s better to play it safe and take full advantage of all that the Unseen/Unknown has set up for you. You do this by TAKING THE NEXT STEP!
