I love this quote.
I have spent a lot of my life waiting for things to be 'just perfect' before actually doing a lot of stuff I really want to do. Does that sound familiar to you?
There is no such thing as the 'perfect moment'. Hmmm, thats not quite right, perhaps it would be better to say that 'the perfect moment, just might be right now', not tomorrow, not next week, not next month or next year, and definitely not when someone else tells you it is. You'll know! That is, if you allow yourself to be guided by your intuition, and stop over-thinking it.
On a personal front, I can remember years ago, not wanting to join a gym until I'd lost weight so I wouldn't feel so bad around all those gorgeous, slim, fit people. Thankfully I got over myself and when I did join, I met a bunch of people who were just like me, overweight, unfit and self-conscious about being judged. I also met people who were slim and fit and self-conscious about being judged. But you know what, they didn't give a rat's ass about how slim or fit I was. They were there for their own reasons and we all gave each other encouragement. They were my Gym Buddies and I had several years of fun with them.
On a professional front, I can remember a more recent time when I had spent five years wanting to develop a particular product, and kept putting it off by telling myself that I didn't have enough time, that I needed to do more research, what if I didn't get it 'just right? when really, they were just excuses to avoid being judged by others. I was judging myself, because I wasn't sure I 'knew enough' or was 'good enough', I mean ... "who am I to think I can develop my own range of products?"
The products, a range of Crystal Kits, are so popular, and I have many 'personal development tools' I want to develop, that I know will benefit lots of people. And you know what? I KNOW I'LL DO IT! I also know that I'll probably produce the odd Dud, and thats okay too, I'd rather take the risk and produce the odd Dud, than forever wonder what it might have been like if I'd 'given something a go'...
Personal development is learning to trust yourself and the decisions you make, and the 'perfect moment' is a crock ....
So... I no longer wait for the perfect moment. I take the moment and make it perfect!
Well, not always, I am a work in progress, after-all.
