Is it ever a good time? What makes it a good time? Who decides when it's the right time?
Got you thinking? Well my question to you today is, why do we use the above excuses to put off doing something? I have a theory that it is for one of two reasons.
- We don't want to do this ‘thing' and rather than speak our truth we find it easier to use an excuse
- We REALLY want to do this ‘thing' but it pushes us so far out of our comfort zone or needs such commitment that we prefer to put it off and stay put within our warm and snuggly safety blanket
But where do either of these two options really get us?
I have been very guilty of the above and have often shied away from taking a big step due to fear of failure or perhaps even fear of other peoples judgements.
However, there have been times in my life when I have looked fear right between the eyes, held my breath and jumped and I have to acknowledge here that these moments have all been massive turning points for me. When I look back now, I realise that had I not made these leaps of faith I wouldn't have any of the things that I hold dearest to me today.
Being held back by fear, lack, doubt or any other ego-based emotion can control your life forever and keep you locked on a treadmill of repetition and narrow-minded thoughts. Expanding your horizons to the possibilities that your dreams hold and allowing your soul and spirit to tell you when to fly is the only way to reach your infinite potential. Because, that is just it, we all have an infinite pool of potential within us just waiting to be released. Once this pool has been accessed it becomes a lake then a river then an infinite ocean that can span across the horizon, endlessly feeding our growth.
So, which would you prefer? Staying safely tucked up with the doubts, what if's, maybe when's or one day I will's OR waking up tomorrow and deciding that from now on all your dreams will become your reality and your life's work is to make this happen?
Let me know your conclusion.
Love and courage,
