We wait to feel ready before we change; to be happy, to really live. We wait to retire to get in shape and really care for ourselves the way we should. We wait to start a business, to do work that fulfills. I call this the Waiting Trap.
There are always going to be reasons to wait. But ask yourself, am I waiting legitimately or fearfully? Are you spending your time analyzing and improving shortcomings or devising alibis to hide behind?
Stop waiting for success to magically appear.
Rather than wait why not seize the moment? Don’t be afraid of what might happen. Rather, take the “I can handle it” stance! If you don’t try the answer will always be no.
If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives. Lemony Snicket
