We say. “I’ll start this business after my girls are in college. I’ll ask for a divorce after we pay off the house. I’ll have time for me after I raise my children. We’ll take that dream vacation after the business stabilizes. I’ll tell him I love him after I’m sure that I do. I’ll spend more time with them after this project, deal or challenge is over.
There is no after. There is no after and even when it gets here it never looks like what you thought it would.
We all have a major decision to make that we are not making. ~ Ian Percy
After is an excuse and a poor one at that.
Three Hard Truths about Right Timing
1) Windows of opportunity are always temporary. Truth is, delay is incredibly costly. Windows of opportunity are moving targets. Opportunities are always in the midst of opening or closing. When we try to keep a window propped open artificially it changes the opportunity. Look at the diagram. You’ll see that there is no delay or waiting in the cycle.
2) The reason we hesitate is never the real reason. It’s always a constructed defense or justification that temporarily relieves the pressure by excusing us for not taking action. I know this is true because I have helped hundreds get over, around or break through their own reason so they could start the business they really want to start.
3) The energy to seize an opportunity is always strongest right when the desire first comes into your awareness. That’s when the Universe is saying, “Go for it I have your back.”
There is no after. There is only now. Celebrate & claim your freedom by choosing to go for what you want without delay.
It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living. Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. ~ Eckhart Tolle
The next time that the Universe blesses you with a really big idea don’t wait for the right time to act. Know that right timing comes along with the idea.
Be ready and do something to show you appreciate the opportunity. You could claim this offer to get really clear in a complimentary strategy session with me.
At the very least ask yourself this question. What does this opportunity require of me now? Then trust what comes to you and act.
