There’s a gatekeeper for your goals.

It’s not your parents and their expectations for your life.

It’s not your partner or your kids and the amount of time that they spend demanding your love and attention.

It’s not your unrealistic and unrelenting boss, with all of her frivolous requirements.

It’s not your peer group, your community or your church.

It’s you.

You’re the one who sets the priorities and the standards.

You’re the one who has to show up and do the work.

You’re the one who is responsible for the impact of your life.

And most importantly, you’re the only one who is required to give permission to get started.

So get started.

Open that gate.
