I was watching the television show The Voice recently. One of the contestants was about to go out on stage to audition. Right before this 18 year old girl turned to walk out, she faced the camera and said, “In the next 90 seconds I could change my life.” Then, she walked out, sang her song, was selected by the judges, and just like that, 90 seconds later, her life had changed. It was a very powerful moment.
What can we do in 90 seconds that will change our life? What action can we take? Who can we connect with? What project can we start? What project can we complete? What lifetime of preparation can we put into motion that could literally change our life?
This isn’t something that just happens on television. This is real world. Each and every day I see people who finally stand up and say, “No More Excuses.” They determine for themselves that they must be accountable for their choices, actions, and results. Their achievements are amazing. They impact the world around them, and they literally change their life. These people do not possess any unusual skills. They simply decide to become accountable.
When we take stock of our situation in life, and take charge of our destiny then we empower ourselves to be the best we can be. Ultimately, in life you will become everything you dream of becoming except for the excuses you make. What are you going to do in the next 90 seconds?
