What are we all waiting for?
Many of us spend our whole lives waiting for a perfect moment. That moment when everything aligns and we can finally take the next step. When things are exactly how they need to be to move forward and you feel ready.
Newsflash: That moment is never going to happen. Things
never oh so rarely, work out the way you want them too. There will never be a ‘right time’ to quit your job, start that company, or ask that person out. The right time never happens, yet you see people all around you excelling.
What’s the deal with that?
They’re doing things before they’re ready.
They’re doing things when they’re uncomfortable and unsure. Because you NEED to act before your ready. Leap before you feel comfortable. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. As cliche as it all sounds, it’s true.
A comfortable life is boring and mundane. You’re robbing the world of your incredible gifts if you always choose to wait. And keep waiting for that perfect moment, to finally feel ready.
There’s no such thing as ready. If it’s new it will never feel ‘comfortable’.
Do it anyhow.
Take a leap of faith; buy that domain, reach out to that person, incorporate your company, hand in your resignation, apply for that job you think you won’t get, start that blog, ask that person out, send that email – whatever it might be.
What are you waiting for?
Stop waiting, start living.
And keep taking those next step. Reach out to someone new. Ask for help. Accept help and advice. Listen, learn and apply what feels right.
Fail faster, try harder. And repeat.
Successful people fail all the time.
Their secret? They keep getting back up.
Because failure means you’re trying. And learning. And growing.
Yes, it’s going to be uncomfortable, painful and stressful at times. But ask anyone that’s ever tried anything new… an athlete trying a new move, an entrepreneur starting a new company, anyone that’s ever started a new job.
It’s change and we’re designed to not like it because its uncomfortable.
But, when you finally nail that back handspring double front flip with a twist, land that first client, receive your first piece of positive feedback, make it to the other side, you will feel amazing.
And if you don’t…
Because life is too short to keep waiting for the stars to align. To wait another day, week, month, or year to start.
This can be applied to every area of your life; from your career, to your lifestyle and health, to your relationships.
So that thing you’ve been putting off? This is your friendly nudge to go do it.
Take that next step and keep taking them so you can learn, grow and experience more.
