Maybe I will do something about it. Maybe I won’t.
Maybe it can wait. Maybe it can’t.
Maybe I should try it. Maybe I shouldn’t.
Maybe it will work. Maybe it won’t.
Maybe I’m scared to try. Maybe I’m not.
Maybe it will work itself out. Maybe it won’t.
Maybe if I ignore it, it will go away. Maybe it won’t.
Maybe it’s none of my business. Maybe it is.
Maybe I can do this. Maybe I can’t.
Maybe. Maybe not.
Maybe my friend Sandi would tell me to get off my ass, because there is no maybe.
Maybe is an excuse. Consequently, excuses are like behinds—everybody has them and they all stink.
Maybe that little whispered voice on my shoulder is urging me to do it. Maybe it’s urging me not to.
Maybe I should listen. Maybe I shouldn’t.
Maybe I should stop saying maybe.
Maybe you can relate to this. Maybe you can’t.
At any rate, look at how much time you have wasted spent reading this.
Maybe you just realized how much time you waste saying maybe to things in your own life.
Maybe you do this to yourself all the time.
Maybe doesn’t accomplish anything.
It’s about time you started making a decision, don’t you think?
The bottom line – Time is money
Unless you’re throwing out a ‘maybe I’ll have the chicken’ while reading a menu, you should add maybe to the list of curse words catching quarters in your swear jar.
Maybe never got anything accomplished. It’s a cheap, easy way to not make a decision. Even professional acrobats will eventually fall off a fence if they stand on it too long. Time is a precious, valuable commodity that we tend to cast aside like so much trash. The more time you throw away, the poorer you become!
You are fortunate. Fortunate enough to be able to do what you want, when you want. The only limitations you truly have are of your own design. Do you want to work doing something you love? Go do it. You can make it work. Better yet,
Do you want to be rich?
Then, go be rich! Start with scrapping the maybes and make decisions. They don’t have to be spur of the moment decisions. Most of the time, it’s best to educate yourself and make smart choices.
“But what if I make the wrong one?”
Don’t stress over it! Guess what? You are now richer for the experience. You always have the option (and the ability) to take another path. Sure, it might take longer, but that’s only because you will be dragging your new-found riches with you.
So go. Go do it. Whatever it is. Be the kings and queens of your own destiny.
Just remember the wise words of Major Benson Winifred Payne—“Don’t push the ‘maybes’, baby.”
