Have you ever said…

“I’m not ready.”
“It’s not the right time.”
“Maybe I’ll do it when…. (fill in the blank)”

The truth of the matter is there is never a “right” time. We will never have all the resources we need. Time, money, knowledge… all of this will never be in complete alignment creating the “perfect” situation.

Whether we are talking going back to school, switching jobs, having a baby, following a dream or accomplishing a weight loss goal… there will never be a “right” time.

So what do we do?

We start anyway. No matter our circumstances. No matter our resources. No matter if the stars are aligned in our favor or not we must simply start. The secret to being successful in anything is really very simple -- just get started.

I waited for a very long time to take the leap with my online business because I was scared that it wasn’t the right time… My young family still demanded so much of me, would I be able to juggle it all? I am a new personal trainer, am I knowledgeable enough to teach other women? I don’t have a ton of “connections,” will I be able to navigate my way around the online space? I had a million reasons why I shouldn’t even try -- not to mention how scared I was to fail.

But then I read this quote: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

Even though the circumstances weren't perfect, it was time to take a shot. I knew that I had it in me to motivate and inspire others. I knew that what I had to share was important and could help so many women. I felt compelled to give to others what I had found a true passion for. And so I decided that not doing anything was a complete disservice to the world and whether or not I was going to be 100% successful I had to try, I had to start and see where I could take this.

Not even a year later I feel pretty damn proud of how far I have come. I have worked my ass off -- not because I had to but because I wanted to. Every single day I have made my business a priority. Has it been easy? Hell no. Has it been worth it? YES 100 times over! I would not be here sharing this with you if I hadn’t simply started, if I had waited for the "right" time.

So if you are still waiting… Remember that we all start in the same place -- scared and unsure -- but what separates the winners is that they simply start anyway.

Thank you for being here and allowing me to share my passion with you.
