Start Before You're Ready

Today is all you have, don’t wait for tomorrow to start.

If you’re working on something meaningful and important to you, then you’ll never feel ready. You will most likely at times feel uncertain, inadequate, and not prepared.

Being ready is an illusion. Ready just means prepared to do something now. Do your best to prepare and then make a move. Learn to be ok with uncertainty and learn to experiment; success is never guaranteed.

Taking action creates momentum, triggers motivation, invites inspiration which all promote a sense of achievement. When you take action, you get insights along the way about what to do next, what to change or how to improve. You don’t need to know everything before you start, but you need to start to learn and grow.

Choose development and growth over comfort and certainty. Most of our growth happens outside the comfort zone. Almost everything you need to bring your goals into fruition requires new experiences, skills, and development. You must do things differently and give new things a chance.

Starting before you’re ready isn’t easy, but if you want to create powerful shifts, it’s required

Don’t let fear of not being good enough stop you from going out into the world making bolder steps. What you have right now is enough. You can organize, edit and defer, but not at the detriment of your success. Not as the response to fear. What you have now is enough to start. It doesn't matter if you're trying to start a business, write a book, realise a creative project - who you are, what you have, and what you know right now is good enough to get going. And you can learn the rest on the way. You must hold the vision and trust the process.

Having the courage to fail —ā€Šin whatever you’re attempting to achieve, with whatever you’re wanting to express, on whatever challenges you’re undertaking —ā€Šis a pivotal step in actually creating and releasing something meaningful. Embrace the possibility of failure and then keep moving.

One small step is better than no steps at all. Take small steps. Act now and reflect along the way. You will learn about yourself, create new exciting ideas, open the door to new possibilities. You will be able to reflect on what’s working, what’s not working and refine your actions on route. Get experience. There’s nothing more in important that getting skin in the game. You need to touch it, taste and experience to really know it. This does not happen from the sidelines. So get moving, as this is often the best way to get ready!

Don’t wait on figuring it all out, because in reality it is in the doing that you do just that. Thinking and theory will only get you part of the way, now is the time to add the practice. To make moves, to explore and create an adventure. Take a chance on you, take chance on success. You are worthy! You are enough! That’s why you must start before you’re ready.

Remember, today is all you have, don’t wait for tomorrow to start.
