Do you ever wait until everything is perfect before making an effort?
Until the universe has laid out everything you need, right in front of you?
Put off changing your diet until you find a grocery store with exactly the foods you want?
Don’t start training until you find a gym that’s located perfectly between work and home?
With exactly the equipment you need?
Refuse to start taking care of yourself until a specific project at work wraps up?
Then, when these things do happen, you still have reasons?
Reasons to put it off?
You’re not the only one.
We all do this.
We twiddle our thumbs.
We put off taking action for every reason possible.
All external to ourselves.
When what we really need to do is act.
Act in the face of imperfect circumstances.
Understand that the success we want is ours to create.
That the universe will never present us perfection.
The stars will never align.
You’ll never have access to the perfect foods.
The gym will never have the perfect equipment.
You’ll always have commitments to juggle.
Trade-offs to consider.
Mistakes to make.
Lessons to learn.
So, do what you can.
That’s all you can ever do.
You are worthy of the best life.
That life will be far from perfect.
You might find that’s what makes it so great.
You’ll only find out if you act.
You’ve got this.
