If you know me, you’ll know I love doing things. Whether on a small, medium or large scale, I just want to explore and create. Basically, just doing things all my life. Right now, I am planning to start my own business, mentor a group of young girls and eventually complete a book.
As a person who enjoys trying out new things and leaving my comfort zone, I find that I have projects written down in my journal and on my laptop but I never actually start them.
I’ve never felt like it was the right time to make a move on them. I sometimes feel like everything has to be perfect for me to start. Do you feel like this too?
Well, today’s Tuesday Truth is: You’ll never feel 100% ready. You just have to start. Just do it.
Everyday, we walk our journey, trying to get better at jobs, make time for family and friends, have a spiritual connection with God and still achieve those goals (Adulting can be consuming).
But then it hit me (maybe like a lightbulb moment) that I’ll never always have the time, resources or even the support to do many of the things I have planned to do. I realized that as I get older, I’ll have less and less time to spend/spare, so instead of waiting for the perfect time, which may never come, why don’t I just start. And you never know, with true commitment and the right mindset, it might eventually turn out to be a right step in the right direction.
Sometimes we convince ourselves that when the right time comes we’ll know. But when really is the right time to start reaching your goals? When really is the right time to reach financial independence? It’s NOW. The best time to begin is Now.
Many of the businesses you admire started when the founders were still finding their footing, putting thoughts into actions or even feeling out of the creative space because of the imposter syndrome (this is generally under emphasized in entrepreneurship). They were never really certain but they started.
We’ll never be a hundred percent ready. We just have to do it. All you need is a starting percent.
So do you think we should wait till everything is perfect before we take a first step? Or is it better to start and strive now?
