Are you waiting for everything to be perfect before you start living the life you were put on this earth to live? Do you have loads of plans, ideas and goals that one-day you will put into practice?
I used to be one of these people, always waiting for everything to be aligned so that I was ready to start working towards my goals. I had always dreamed of being my own boss. Even though I build up great experience, working for someone else always massively frustrated me.
Yet, I stayed trapped in employment for far too many years, trapped by the regular pay-check, the annual holidays and the pension package. I would tell myself “as soon as I save x amount, then I’ll hand in my noise in and set up on my own”
That day never arrived, either I would end up spending the money or once I did hit that magic figure, I would conclude I needed a little bit more… just in case.
Looking back, my only regret is that I didn’t hand in my notice sooner, because there’s no magic financial figure that eliminates all fear, stress and worry when it comes to setting up your own business. In fact, quite the opposite is true. Nothing makes you hungrier, more determined and more motivated than seeing your bank balance dwindling.
I suppose what I am trying to say is start living now, as in today, as in right now! The best moments aren’t to be discovered in the future, there here and now, so grab them.
If you want to start dating, don’t wait until you reach that perfect size, start dating now, you are already perfect.
If you want to go for that promotion, do it, now!
Tired of working for someone else? Then make your own business a reality!
It really is that simple. The only problem is, the negative voice in our head (and maybe the voice of a few choice friends or family members) can be overpowering.
Our own voice, the voice that knows best, the one that’s telling you how to be happy and most fulfilled, lets start listing that that one!
If you want to make change happen, get in touch and find out how I can help, it really can be that easy!
