How often have you heard the excuse I’m waiting for the right moment to do that thing? And how often that right moment changes in time so it’s always in the future? I think that the main reason here is fear and the lack of motivation.
It never is a right moment to start pursuing our goals, but if we don’t have something that we truly want, we won’t have the required amount of motivation to get over that strong fear. I don’t think that people are lazy or they want to complain the whole time or that they want to find the negative part in everything (maybe some of them want this, but not the vast majority). Some people simply don’t have the proper mindset to pursuit something because they haven’t found that thing that they really want.
Because of this, I think that the first step for us would be to start learning things. What kind? Well, all kind of things until we find that one domain we really like. Once we find it, it would be easier to search for more because we’ll develop that passion to know everything about it which will give us the energy. The more we know the more ideas we will have in that domain and the more we’ll want to make them real. At this point, we’ll face that fear… the fear of failing, but the good thing is that our passion might be able to give us the required kick in ass to overcome that fear. Yes, we might fail, but the great thing about passion is that we will enjoy the process, not necessary the outcome. And another great part is that we’ll learn something new if we either fail or succeed, so it all starts with learning.
