Learning to be a better you!

When is it the right time to start....

I think the answer to this should always be a resounding NOW! I think the fact that you are even asking the question means you probably know the answer, but often we are looking for an excuse or justification in why now is not the right time!

Quote Image Thoreau

It doesn't matter what it is;

  • Starting a diet
  • Starting a business
  • Learn how to meditate
  • Exercising more
  • Finding a new job

You will always be able to find a perfectly reasonable excuse as to why it's not the right time; it's to cold, I don't have time for that, it's too hot, I don't have the money, I don't have the right skills, my plan isn't perfectly formed yet! But don't wait to get all your ducks in a row, that perfect day will never come. If you want it bad enough, now is the time to act.

And it doesn't have to be that you create your first website in a day, or you lose 10 pounds in the first week, or that you meditate in perfect bliss for an hour. Start small, break your big goal into chunks and start taking small steps on your path to your ultimate vision of success.

And just because you start something it doesn't mean it's going to be a huge success straight out of the box, these things can take lots of time and energy - anything worthwhile in life usually does.

And sometimes it won't work, sometimes it's going to be a failure. But that's ok, because it is all part of the journey. And sometimes we need to fail before we can truly succeed. As Michael Jordan (arguably the greatest basketball player of all time) likes to remind people. "I’ve failed over & over & over again in my life & that is why I succeed". So if you do fail, be gentle on yourself. Try again. Know that you are one step closer to achieving what it is you truly want in life.

If you never start, you can never succeed. And chances are one day you may look back on life and not regret those failures (or probably remember half of them to be honest), but you will regret those things you didn't even try!

Follow your dreams, become the person you want to be, live the life you have always imagined - but start it NOW!
