If you wait to be sure, to feel ready, you may not be able to do anything remarkable.
If you are afraid to offend anyone, then you may not be able to do anything astonishing.
If you think only invincible types of people can do amazing things, you may not be able to do anything momentous.
If you decide to go for it now, there is a great chance you will do things astonishing, extraordinary, exceptional, tremendous, wonderful.
Start in your likely discomfort by doing tiny steps toward it. You’re not the same person you were last year. Challenge your beliefs, your certainties. Question what you’re so sure of. Like whether or not you CAN do extraordinary things.
Do something that is hard every day.
Even a little hard. Just do it.
Like wake up really early and read something inspirational. Start the day with exercise. Track what you eat. Really. Eat only nutritious food.
You’ll be surprised what you’re ready for, what you’re made of, what you can do!
Proud of you!!
