"Conditions are never just right. People who delay action until are factors are favorable do nothing."
Getting things done in life, particularly those things we know we need to do, requires that we get started first. And its that getting started part that sometimes provides us our greatest challenge in life. Far too often we find ourselves waiting and hesitating, seeking out that perfect time or perfect place to get the ball rolling. Unfortunately, this waiting around can actually become the undoing of those very things that need to be done.
"Everyone who has got where he is had to begin where he was."
Robert Louis Stevenson
Is there really a right time or place to get going and get the lead out? As a matter of fact, there is. The top performers have discovered that there is no better time and place to get started than right where they are right now. Not sooner or later or whenever they get around to it, but right this very minute. The power performers have learned that one of these days is none of these days and that someday is just a day of the weak. "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."
In order to live your life to its fullest and make the most of every moment, youve got to get with the program and nurture a do it now attitude right now. If you continue waiting for that precise moment when the timing is right and the stars are in perfect alignment, you may be in for a very long wait. In fact, that magical moment when all is safe and secure may never come at all. Are you willing to take that chance?
Most people will readily tell you that their biggest regrets in life are those things they never did. There are way too many miraculous moments, amazing adventures and fabulous friendships out there waiting for you to discover them. You need to embrace what you have and forcefully forge a fantastic future right now.
"The question for each man is not what he would do if he had the means, time, influence and educational advantages, but what he will do with the things he has."
Theres an old Dutch proverb goes something like this: "He who is outside the door has already a good part of the journey behind him." You need to get outside the door, get going and see what kind of great things you can make happen today. No waiting or hesitating, just all out action all day long.
Wouldnt you love to live a life full of fun and excitement, where youre revved up and raring to go every single day? Can you imagine what you could achieve if you stopped waiting and instead enthusiastically embraced each day with an optimistic can do attitude and a never give up approach to living? Could your life get better, maybe even a whole lot better, if you stopped waiting and started making things happen?
So what in the world are you waiting for?
"Act decidedly and take the consequences. No good is done by hesitation."
Thomas Henry Huxley
When youre willing to throw caution to the wind and take some chances, learn from your mistakes and most of all, take action right here and right now your life will take off as well. When you finally turn it on and turn your power loose, youd better hold on to your seat and get ready for the ride of your life!
The Bottom Line: Right now is always the right time for you to do what needs to be done.
