As I sat at my computer just staring at the screen wondering what today’s article would hold I looked across the office towards my bookcase and out jumped a book aptly entitled Inspiration!
As they say there is no such thing as coincidence and I for one have discovered that many times, ask and the answer usually manifests itself.
So here goes, I asked for inspiration and I got it, I thought whatever I opened the book up to I will blog about……
‘If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready we shall never begin’ – Ivan Turgenev
How right he was.
Over the years since I have been in business I have often planned and prepared only to think I would wait until the time was right.
‘One day I will………’ how often have you said that.
I do find myself a little more pro-active than some I know who seem to spend time procrastinating and worrying about stepping outside their comfort zone, as they do this they watch others take up the mantle and run. I have heard the words, ‘I just need to wait until……..’ more times than I can count and every time I urge those that say it not to wait, to move forward one step at a time as to wait is indeed just to waste time.
The moment to start is actually any moment in time for once you have taken the first step the path will just light up ahead of you. It is the not starting that holds you back, it actually holds you in its grasp and you will find the longer you take to move forward the tighter the hold becomes.
Be confident, know that perfect timing will unfold in front of you, get started and never look back.
Today whatever it is you are waiting to start take inspiration as I did from the quote above and take one small step in the knowing that today you are ready enough!
