I was listening to the Goal Digger Podcast by Jenna Kutcher the other day and she said something that really hit home for me.
"A lot of our lives are wasted by simply waiting... and it is delaying your dreams!"
I want you to think about that for a minute.
1. How much time have you spent waiting for something to happen?
2. How much time have you waiting to pursue an idea or goal?
3. Have you just been waiting for your dream to come to you?
Waiting is such a dream killer! If we spend our life waiting for it to happen, or waiting for everything to be absolutely perfect, or just putting it off because you don't feel like you are ready you will never even start! It will sit on the back burner until you have the courage to do it.
This is actually something I did. I sat and waited for over 2 years to pursue my passion of running my own photography business. I sat for years having a hard time branding myself, until one day I just sat down and did it. Figured out who I wanted my online presence to look like. Created a website (that has been updated at least 6 times since November 2018). Created a Facebook community to share my work with. Started going to networking events and making it known that I am a photographer and I specialize in portraits, products, and personal branding for small businesses. As I sit here and look back, I really wish I would have hopped on the band wagon earlier and just went for it instead of waiting until "I felt ready" or waiting until "it was perfect." Because if you really think about it, you will NEVER feel ready and things will NEVER be in the perfect space or span of time you would like for them to be.
So can you do me a favor? STOP WAITING!
Go out and work towards that goal by any means necessary!
