Are you waiting to be ‘more experienced’, ‘more confident’, ‘more senior’ or ‘more qualified’ before you go for the things you want?
Or perhaps you’re waiting for the right timing, the right situation, or a ‘sign’ from above?
Perhaps you have told yourself a variation of the following:
- Once I have more experience, then I will apply for that promotion
- Once I have my idea clearly formulated in my head, then I will speak up
- Once I feel confident, then I will do that presentation
- Once my website is perfect, then I will launch my business
- If only I wasn’t an introvert, I’d be able to go to networking events
- If only my English was better, I’d be able to have great conversations
- If only I didn’t have this fear of going blank, then I would do more public speaking
In this episode, I challenge you to think about your own “Once I have…” story, or your “If only” story, and to explore how it might be holding you back
I also share my own personal story of how I was ‘waiting’ to move house before I would allow myself to enjoy my home space.
I have realized there is no point in ‘waiting’ for something in order to create more happiness and success in your life. You can create it for yourself NOW.
