“Do not wait: the time will never be ‘just right’. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.” ― Napoleon Hill
The time will never be just right for you to take action. The time will never be just right for you to launch that project, to spend time with your family, to write a book, create new habits, or start that exercise program. The sooner you understand and acknowledge this the better.
Get rid of the excuses!
“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.” ― Jordan Belfort
Well isn’t this true… I’m too tired. I don’t have the time. I don’t have the skills. It’s too late now. Now is not the right time. I am not ready. I’m too scared. Nobody will support me. What if I fail. I’m not motivated enough. I don’t have the money..yet!
It’s easy to come up with excuses and justify not getting started. The longer you fill your head with this rubbish, the less time you have to take action.
It’s easy to say, “I will start when I have more money, time and resources”. By this time next year, you will have a lot more excuses. It’s a cycle. And once you get caught in the loop, it can just keep on going with no break. Like those new years resolutions you set yourself every single year!
Many people are living their entire lives without ever stepping out of their comfort zone. But it’s brilliant to witness the rare few who dare themselves and step out of their personal bubbles to make a change.
Most of us believe that we will always have tomorrow to do today’s work. We consistently hold on to this belief and keep procrastinating until work becomes a heavy burden.
We will always default to our comfort zone. Your comfort zone provides a state of mental security. You can understand why it’s so hard to kick your brain out of your comfort zone.
The Biggest Hurdle!
The biggest hurdle for many of us is simply getting started. Making that important decision to take a single first step. You can be as big and successful as you can possibly imagine if you build that mindset you need to step outside the comfort zone. You just need to learn to trust yourself.
Don’t think too far into the future. If you’re thinking about it too much, chances are you’re killing it.
Just Get Started!
No matter who you are or what your biggest dreams may be, remember this: No one ever came to this planet to take a back seat, play second fiddle or make it small.
Stop questioning yourself. Stop listening to everyone else. The world is waiting for you to start something. Waiting to hear what you have to say. Waiting to use your creative product or service. Waiting to share your ideas.
It’s still not too late to chase your dreams. We tend to think that we’re not good enough, and give up before we even start. The fear of taking risks never goes away but it does become familiar.
What matters is that you persist.
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger, more skilled, more self-confident and more and more successful.” — Mark Victor Hansen
There isn’t a right time for anything. There’s no such thing as perfect timing. If it feels right, just go for it today. Don’t wait until everything is just perfect. Just get started now.
