I was watching a great show on Netflix this weekend called The Imposters. I binged season 1 in about a day and a half. The show got me truly hooked. Sadly, I read it was canceled after season 2… Anyway, it is about a bunch of con artists living all of these different lives. One random, outside character said something that truly stuck with me. She mentioned a mug she saw at an airport that said
“If you wanted to do it, you would have done it already.”
This quote really struck a chord with me. I talk so much about how I want to change my life but I have to think about whether or not I really want to. Because, as this saying goes, I would have done it already.
So I decided to put my actions where my mouth is and change my circumstances instead of just complaining about my life or lack thereof.
You can also apply it to others around you. If someone doesn’t make an effort for you, remember that if they truly wanted to, then they would make time for you. Don’t lower your worth, and don’t push aside your dreams. But remember, you won’t work unless you truly want it. Our actions speak louder than words. And ask yourself, do I really want this?
