You’re Ready

We put unnecessary dampeners on our life’s progression when we reject or delay opportunities because we think “we’re not ready”.

For example:

  • Waiting until “you’re ready” before jumping into a committed relationship?
  • Waiting until “you’re ready” before taking that job? Accepting that promotion?
  • Waiting until “you’re ready” before marketing your new business idea?

Sometimes success is just taking that first step into the unknown.

Even if you fail and fall flat on your face, the literal worst-case scenario is that you’ll learn something.

And you’ll be a better person for it.
