Are you putting it off?

I wanted to let you know about something that I’ve recently done. It’s something that I have talked about, thought about and even had quotes about over the last 8 or so years…

But, and this is important, I never actually did anything about it!!

What was it?

Well, this week I had braces fitted to my teeth!!

When I was younger, I had 2 milk teeth that just stayed with me. I still have them. I was playing so much football that we decided they would eventually be knocked out by an over aggressive defender, or similar… but it never happened.

I could have had them taken out and implants put it, but I never did.

And here we are. I’m in my mid-thirties and I still have 2 milk teeth!!

And that’s not everything. My teeth are not straight.

And I have hated my teeth for years… and talked about doing something about it for years as well.

And here’s the thing. If I HAD done something 2, 3, 4 years or more ago… it would have been done. My teeth would have been straightened. My milk teeth gone and replaced, or the gap closed up by braces…

It would have been a box that I had ticked.

But, I didn’t. It hasn’t happened.

In fact, I have only just started along that road…

But, importantly, I have started.

Now that I have started, it is something that will be completed.

And I hope you are seeing my point here. It might be braces and my teeth, but this could so easily be your business, your mortgage, your credit card bill, your golf swing, learning to swim, your gym membership, learning to drive… whatever it is that you are putting off today!!

My teeth will be straight in about 18 months from now. They could already be straight now!!

Just some food for thought… My teeth hurt right now, so I’m eating soup at the moment!!

Whatever it is you have been putting off, keep smiling!!

Until next time…
