The pressure is on when you’re trying to hit a moving target.
There are always people around to criticize you, or to give you free advice on how to do it.
Nothing is ever quite right when you’re taking aim, either.
You’re too old.
You’re too young.
Your idea is too big.
Your idea is too small.
Your life is too comfortable.
Your life isn’t uncomfortable enough.
The target is always moving.
This ebb and flow is a thought pattern that flows through all of us and it can dangerously warp reality if we let it.
The good news is that if we realize we’re stuck in our own heads, we can start to see clearly again.
If we realize that these are excuses and not truths, we can begin to realize the target was in our sights the whole time.
RE: The trick to hitting a moving target is realizing that we’re the ones moving it.
You have more control than you think.

What might happen if you didn’t believe it? What might happen if you had a magic wand and that criticism disappeared forever?
What might you be free enough to do, then?
What if you gave yourself permission to ignore the voice and do it anyway?
