If you wait until you're ready, you'll be waiting for the rest of your life.
I'm Sid Meadows, and welcome to Success Soundbites. I'm really glad that you're here with me today because you know what? If you wait until you're ready, you'll be waiting for the rest of your life. That is a really powerful question, or statement. And why is that? Because, guess what, friends? You're never ever going to be 100% ready.
I'll use myself as an example. Three years ago, when I started embarkCCT, I had a little bit of a business plan, a little bit of a financial plan and a couple of clients, but I was nowhere near 100% ready. And if I had waited until I was 100% ready to start my business and to enter the world of entrepreneurship, I'd still be waiting today because there's no such thing as 100% ready, because you cannot prepare for the unknown. You can't prepare for the things that you just don't realize are going to happen or haven't thought of because I've experienced so much learning in the last few years that have really helped me grow the company to where I am today.
So, and it helped us actually impact all the lives and businesses that we've been able to impact. So, what are you waiting on? Are you waiting to be ready to pick up the phone and call that potential client who could spend millions of dollars with you? Are you waiting until you're ready to go in and meet with your boss and ask for that promotion or that raise? Are you waiting until you feel ready to apply for your dream job that you saw posted last week? Hey, guys, my encouragement to you is don't wait. Just do it. Take one step forward. Take forward movement. Move into action and use fear as your motivation.
This is an amazing quote that I heard somebody say a few weeks ago. "Let the fear push you until the vision pulls you." That is such a powerful quote. Use fear to push you towards not waiting until you're 100% ready because if you wait it's never going to happen, friends. If you wait it's never going to happen. You all have big dreams. You all have big goals. Go out there today and take some action forward to live the life that you want to live, and to become the person that you were meant to be.
