What are you waiting for?

You know there’s something in you. Something you’re dying to share. Something you know will make a difference. Something that lights you up. Something powerful. Meaningful. Important.

And yet… it’s still in you, instead of out here where it can do good.

So, let it out already!

Your “something” might be a song, or a business idea, or a book, or a marriage proposal, or running for political office, or starting a non-profit, or … well, you get the idea, right?

Here’s the deal… I hear every day from my clients about the fears, the doubts, the obstacles that keep them from showing up and playing big in their lives. And believe me when I say, I know – from personal experience – how that goes.

So, how do you know when you’re ready to share your “something”?

The answer: you don’t know. You will never know. You will never, ever feel totally, 100% willing to be that vulnerable.

But do it anyway. Start somewhere. Take that imperfect action.

Your imperfect action is way more effective than sitting at home trying to make something perfect that never will be… because, really, there’s no such thing as perfect anyway.

Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time watching my 15-month-old son totter around. He just learned to walk, so as you can imagine, he falls down… a lot!

But I know that he will be a champion walker (and runner) in no time. I don’t spend time with thoughts like, “Oh boy… he just keeps falling. He’ll never get this right. Why bother even taking a couple of steps if he’s just gonna crash down on his butt again anyway?”

Of course, we would never have those thoughts, right? And yet, still as adults, we refuse to put anything out there that isn’t already polished to an immaculate shine. Strange, don’t you agree?

So, what imperfect action will you take today? What small step are you willing to take to start this journey? And if you’re reading this and feeling totally stuck, maybe your starting point is sending me an email and sharing what’s going on for you. Who knows? Maybe I’ll be able to help. 🙂
