With every situation in my life I would always want to wait until I was ready.
I’m not ready to try that new job or order something different at a restaurant. I was never ready to get married let the idea of children one day seemed so far away.
One day I was having a convo with a family member about my future and the only response I had for not doing things I wanted to do was “I’m not ready for that.”
She said to me “you’ll never be 100% ready to do anything in your life, don’t wait cuz you’ll never do it.” She was right.
I needed to stop overthinking and just do it. I stopped talking myself out of things with the “I’m not ready excuse” and my life changed.
I don’t jump right into something without a little bit of planning or thinking but I don’t talk myself out of everything either. It’s a healthy balance.
Like the brand Nike says “Just Do It.”
Are you someone that keeps telling yourself your not ready for something? Let me know in the comments.
