If not now...
There’s always the next day, or the next....
But maybe not.
Maybe the next day you get a promotion at a job you dislike and you feel financially obligated to play it safe.
Maybe the door closes on your dreams, while you were waiting too long for the perfect moment or the gumption to do something scary.
What are you waiting for?
The fear to go away?
The opportunity to come to you?
The time to be right?
The lack of time, money, and energy you have to be better?
It won’t. Only in the movies. The time is never right (and if it is it’s too late). There will never be ‘enough’ to start.
That’s why you’ve got to take matters in your own hands and start regardless of your circumstances and fear.
Are you waiting for a Prince Charming idea to rain success and happiness on you?
A great friend of mine has a tattoo that reads: ‘If not now, when?’
It means, if you’re not going to do it now, when are you ever going to get another chance.
If not now, never.
The people who can turn their fears into acts of boldness, their lack of opportunity into opportunities and their lack of resources into creativity, are the ones who change the world. Or at least the ones that change their own world.
