Before You're Ready

So, I get that some people find the "start before you're ready" quotes motivating, but I don't think it's the right way to approach the problem. I think the real issue is that people are trusting their fear voice to tell them if they are ready, and the fear voice is NEVER ready. Because there is never a guarantee that everything will work out. That there won't be any struggle or pain involved.

However, there IS such a thing as being ready, and I believe it is very important. It's just that you have to dig through the fear voice of the mind to find the intuitive voice of the heart. Because that is where you will figure out if you truly are ready.

Most likely, especially for perpetually anxious people like me, you will never not be afraid of taking the next step. But when I've taken successful steps forward, it's because I knew somewhere inside that it was time and I was ready.

I think it's actually kind of dangerous to be telling people to start before they are ready. Just the same as it's kind of dangerous to rely on your fear voice to be the only guiding factor in your decisions. We are more than our fear voice.
