What Are You Waiting For?

planning Nov 13, 2020

The video has thoughts on 'being in control' to complement this article.

You know,

deep down,

that someday you want your own business.

It’s part of living the life of your dreams. 

You recognise this will take an investment of time and energy and it might not all be plain sailing. Perhaps you also recognise you have some fears about how it will all turn out...

  • What if you can’t earn enough to pay the bills?
  • What if nobody buys from you?
  • What if you can’t motivate yourself to get ‘out there’? 

What if you spend all your savings and end up with nothing?

What if you fail

You could lose your home, your relationships and everything that’s important to you.

Faced with these thoughts, you wait.

You wait until the time is right.  Until you have more money, more time, more space, more information, a more supportive spouse or a committed business partner.  Until this situation is resolved and the economy is better

The timing never seems quite right to take the plunge.

You rearrange your current work and life, perhaps you can put up with things being less than satisfactory for a while longer?

You compensate yourself with indulgences. Give yourself treats to get through the day.

Over time your decision wavers, maybe your job isn’t so bad after all. You hang on. Maybe you'll be made redundant?  You can get by, it’s okay.

You don’t see the impact on your health and wellbeing and the knock on effect for  those close to you. You’re unaware of how undervaluing yourself and your priorities has become a habit. 

You close down your emotions to protect yourself from environments that you will never thrive in and wonder why you’ve lost your energy and enthusiasm for life.


Every day you spend in your mind-numbing job is taking you further away from where you want to be.  We all have fears and doubts, but they don’t need to hold us back or propel us into directions that aren't right for us.

It’s time to take the plunge. Lets workout a plan. You’ll have a clear view of where you’re going and what could hold you back and you'll know every day you’re moving a step closer to creating the life of your dreams. And it’s that that makes all the difference.
