"Don't wait for those feelings of excitement, confidence, and clarity, before you take action.
Take action first, without them, and they will follow.
There is never a perfect moment for you to take action towards reaching your dreams than NOW. Do not wait to finish school, or find a better job, or until you get this promotion, or whatever other excuses you can come up today to delay what you can and will do tomorrow. It is crucial to always take action when your ideas are still fresh in your mind and your level of motivation is high. This is the moment you want to capture because the longer you wait, the harder it will be to get the desire to pursue that same dream or goal. I am not saying this is always the case, but for most, they do start creating excuses that aren't there to just find reasons not to aim for a better life. Search deep from within and understand the nature of your procrastination. What are you afraid of? Is the task too difficult to attain? Are you not smart enough to make it happen? Are you afraid to fail? Who isn't? We are all humans and failing isn't really the end of the world. Remember, the acronym F.A.I.L (First Attempt In Learning) so without this first attempt, you will have no second, or third of fourth. Embrace these opportunities in learning and doing things differently to better yourself and increase your chances of succeeding. This is how winning is done.
By taking action, you allow yourself to open door that wouldn't be open if you just stood there, not doing much of anything. It's OK to choose a door, going through it and realizing that it wasn't the right one for you. Just turn around, go back to where you started and find yourself another one. If all other doors are locked, then open your mind and create yourself a door that will suit you better so you can succeed in your own special way. We do not all have the keys that will open every doors you see out there, but that shouldn't mean that nothing is available for you out there. Be creative, be unique and build something that people will always remember you from. If you fail over and over again, it is perfectly fine. Edison tried over 1000 times with the light bulb before it worked so just imagine if he would have abandoned his project prior to that 1001 times, when it finally worked. He is now in the history books and everyone knows his name. Be that person, be that one who will NEVER quit, no matter what happens.
