Today is precious. We hold only the moment in front of us, and before we know it, we are whisked into the future, dreams and all. For that reason, it’s pretty important to begin living our dreams today, instead of waiting for the perfect conditions or opportunities to come along!

Here are three great reasons to stop hesitating and just go for it in life:

1. You never know until you try. Got a great idea or a driving passion? Start moving on it, and see what happens. Not everything we try is a guaranteed success, but we miss 100% of the shots we never take.

2. You’re capable of more than you think. It’s an evolutionary quirk – in order to survive and stay “safe,” our minds continually place limits on what we think we can do. However, studies and life experience show that when we actively push these limits, we can achieve more than we ever thought was possible.

3. There’s no time like the present. Dreaming is great, but even better than that is acting with conviction and using the present moment wisely to move closer to our goals. Carpe diem! This day is all we have.
