Have you ever heard someone say “I don’t have time” for something they have been wanting to do? Have you ever used that phrase yourself?

I Don't Have Time Is Only An ExcuseI myself have been guilty of using that phrase, not just once, but many times. However, I’ve found that at the core of that phrase is an excuse. I believe we use the phrase as a way of letting ourselves off the hook. It gives the impression that we are busy people and who can argue that point.

What if I was to say we use it to make excuses for something we don’t want to do, fearful of doing or simply not knowing how to do what we promised to do. This promise could be to others or to self.

“I hate feeling selfish” is one response I hear from some of my clients who are conflicted about pursuing their dream.

I hate feeling selfishHave you ever felt that way?

I have.

A few years ago, I had made the decision to resign my job and go after what I believed was a long-standing dream of mine – be my own boss.

What I wrestled with on numerous occasions was this one thought / question: “Am I being selfish?” “Is this about me?” “What about my family?”

These were just some of the thoughts that plagued me.

Sometimes in life as the years go by, we look back and reflect upon how we are where we are in life. Have you ever done that?

Most people who are at the later stage of life, is not as concerned about pursuing their dream even though some do, as those who are at an earlier stage of life.

Letting go of grown childWhat I’ve found is that most of what is said surrounding pursuing your dream, tend to cater to a one-size fits all mentality. This does not take into consideration certain facets of living that is unique to those who are in the midlife stage of life.

One of the areas has to do with living with or letting go of a grown child. By this I mean, having them move out on their own.

One of the lessons that so many people fail to learn when it comes to new products being brought to the market, is to test it out before launching.

The term thTest Your Idea Before Launchingat has been adopted to communicate this concept is “Market before Manufacturing.” This makes complete sense. Why make something that you think the market needs before finding out from the consumers what they need?

Most larger corporations do that. They will run tests products in certain markets to see what the demand is like and determine whether or not to produce it on a larger scale.
