Do you ever feel like you’re not getting what you want fast enough? You want it now, so why can’t you have it now? You think you’re doing all the right things but it’s just taking so long, almost too long. This could apply to any area of your life.

You’ve been programmed by the ‘just add water’ media that your needs and wants should be instantly fulfilled. Pay attention to the messages you see and hear, how many times this week you are exposed to one or more of the following phrases.

Get rich quick

Lose weight fast

Overnight success

Over time these messages cause you to have an internal disparity in your life. You begin to feel as though there’s something you’re not doing right and this is the emotion these messages are designed to create. They are designed for you to act but not necessarily in your best interest.

The trick is to realize that any endeavor that is going to create lasting change in your life is going to take time. It’s going to take time and effort to begin and more important, it’s going to take even more effort to maintain. So allow your rational thinking mind to push your feelings of ‘why don’t I have it now’ to the side and keep moving forward.

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King
