I was listening to a podcast today by John Lee Dumas (Entrepreneur on Fire) and I heard something that sparked this post. Coincidentally enough, I saw the following post from a friend on Instagram earlier this week and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Here’s the post (thank you Maria)!
The title of this post is, “We’re waiting for you.” We’re waiting for you to take a chance and be the ENTIRE person you can be. We’re waiting for you to take risks, challenge your thinking, and take the next step in your journey.
The angst of the wait is simple. Not one subscriber on this blog or relationship is going to tell you when you’re ready. Nor will someone give you permission if that’s what you’re in search of.
It’s likely you’re ready to take the next step or make big moves, but you’re waiting for the horn to sound or flag to drop.
I hate to disappoint, but I’ve never seen the sign when it’s ok to start or embark on a new journey. You just start. There is no official starter with the gun shouting, “On your mark, set,…BANG!”
Every time you start, take another chance, or challenge conformity it gets a bit easier. Soon, (as the image states it) “it becomes a habit.” Habits are really hard to stop (I speak from experience).
What I will tell you is everyone around you is waiting for you to BE MORE. They’re just not going to beat down your door and show you the path. They’re just as human as you and I, and we’re working on our own journey. Take responsibility for your future and give people the eye opening experience they’ve been waiting for. Until then, we’re waiting for you. We need you!
ACTION ITEM: In the near future choose the uncomfortable. It will take work and it won’t be easy, but the accomplishment you’ll feel will release the endorphins needed to start your habit. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” – Lao-tzu
