There Is Never A Perfect Moment
February 9, 2020
There have been many times when I have held myself back from doing something, because I was waiting for the right time.
I can’t because…
- I am not ready yet, let me prepare some more and then….
- There is too much going on. Let things settle down a little, then….
- I have not saved enough to take this risk, let me save a little more and then….
The reality is that there is never a perfect moment. Whenever I have held back, waiting for the so called “right time”, all I have experienced is regret and a feeling of stagnation.
There is no “right time”.
Today, whenever I catch myself saying “I Can’t because…” , I know there is some fear that is holding me back. There is some form of resistance.
The more I try to rationalise this, the more complicated it becomes and the more paralysed I am.
I have found a simple solution for this problem-
I just take a leap of faith and jump headlong into whatever it is that I want to do.
Strangely, ever since I have started doing this , the lesser I am finding myself saying “I Can’t because…”
Zig Ziglar one of the many inspirational teachers I follow said something very powerful-
“You don’t have to be great to start , but you certainly have to start to be great”
If you feel you are capable of doing something , but you feel you are not ready yet- There is no better time to start then now- Your greatness is in the action you take, NOW!!
