If you are still not where you want to go in your life, what are you waiting for? Take the leap now!
We all have our dreams: to travel the world, create a business, buy a house, meet your better half, or maybe go to the moon. No matter what your dreams are, the important thing is to make them come true. You are doing it? Or do you try and think that you have not yet reached where you would like to be?
There are people who are clear about it and go towards their dreams, they focus their daily actions to achieve them, even when they do not feel ready. But most people think they need to wait until they are ready until they have everything perfectly under control. Thus they do not face important decisions, since they do not believe that they are ready to carry them out.
And you, are you waiting to be ready? Are you putting off your dreams? Are you waiting for the right moment to carry them out? And then, instead of going all out, you just go testing, trying, going around, because maybe you don’t feel quite ready.
You will never be “ready,” so stop waiting and jump right in!
Postponing your dreams because you think you have to find the right time or feel ready are excuses to deceive yourself, and thus avoid leaving your comfort zone. These excuses are killing your dreams without you noticing, without even realizing it.
When is the best time to act and follow your dreams?
Never really. There will never be a better time to act because when you start you won’t have all the experience, resources, and skills. That is why there is no point in waiting for the right moment because that moment will never come.
“Stop waiting. The perfect moment will never come, never, because it does not exist.”
You have to make it happen, you have to create that moment, create the decision to do it, and from there start taking the necessary steps to build your dreams. You don’t need to know everything right now, just make the decision and make it happen.
Know that you will continue to learn along the way, finding the right resources, and gaining the experience you need to keep going, but you must make the leap now!
Needing to be perfect and 100% ready is just an excuse to stay in your comfort zone. This is why many people are caught up in the planning process, but they never start anything.
Anytime you find yourself thinking that you are not ready, please take a deep breath and let that thought go!
That is what I do and I become aware of my need to want to know and control everything, and then I let go of it, I let it go so that it does not stop me from continuing. Sometimes it is not easy at all and fears to appear, but there is always that internal voice that tells me «just go ahead and do only what you have to do now, don’t think beyond».
We need to have confidence in our abilities and faith in the idea that taking immediate action will be of much greater benefit than waiting until “the time is right.”
Start now to care, love, meditate and imagine a new way of living
When you see that you do not advance
1- You must listen to your soul and not let another minute pass: just do what you have to do now. And even if there is uncertainty, although there may be fears, obstacles and many other things, you will feel that excitement of moving towards where you want to be, focus and do not let anything paralyze you.
2- Something you should know is that the confidence and skills necessary to advance in life come from active practice. That is why you should not waste your time waiting for things to happen, but rather put all your effort to make them happen.
3- Something you should avoid is comparing yourself to others. If you constantly compare your achievements with those of others, you will always find a way to be disappointed. This disappointment can lead to self-doubt and not feeling ready.
4- And something you must learn is to identify and challenge the excuses that keep you from moving forward, such as I don’t have enough money, I don’t know enough, my job doesn’t allow it, I don’t have time, I don’t know what I want from life, I’m not ready yet …
Since there are countless reasons why things could go wrong when we step out of our comfort zone, it is possible to create an inexhaustible list of excuses for getting stuck, and seemingly safe.
But we must realize that most, if not all, of the excuses we make, are actually temporary barricades, not concrete walls. Even if it takes a little extra effort, there are ways you can overcome them.
If what happens to you is that you don’t know what you want to do with your life, it is most likely not because you don’t want to do anything. Unfortunately, you are allowing your indecision to manifest into stagnation, and you end up letting opportunities to try new and exciting things slip out of your hands.
Yes, we must be cautious with the possibility that things do not always go our way. But if we let the fear of not being prepared for the unexpected keep us from taking steps forward, we will never get anywhere.
It’s okay to feel like you’re not ready to take big steps in life. We all feel that way sometimes. But sitting around waiting to “be ready” will get you nowhere. You need to take action and gain the experience that will prepare you for the next step.
“As you keep moving forward, you will eventually get to where you want to be.”
You may not be ready to take a giant leap in the next chapter of your life, but that doesn’t mean you should stop taking baby steps in the right direction.
Time won’t prepare you for what’s next in life. Only your experiences, and the lessons you learn from them, can.
So, stop making excuses and postponing your dreams, instead start taking the steps towards them. If you keep waiting to be ready, you may wait for the rest of your life.
