Why there's never a perfect time to start

Why there's never a perfect time to start

If you ever start to feel something pull at your heart, don’t ignore it…

Many times in life, we are faced with difficult decisions. We try and gather up as much information as possible. We begin by calling our friends, family, searching for advice or something to stop us from setting out on the path we believe is the right one. Deep down in our heart, we always knew from the beginning what it is we actually wanted. However, we also know it's not the safest route. A route with a lot of uncertainty shouldn't block you from receiving your blessings.

About 6 years ago I took my first leap of faith and started my own clothing business. I was young, I had no idea what I was doing, but I didn't let them stop me from starting. Around the time, I was a student in college so the risks were low. I always thought, “If this idea fails, at least I’ll have a degree.” To me college was the perfect time to start a business; free resources, free mentors, and most importantly free space (The things you’ll do for space once you graduate college). Did I mention, I had no idea what I was doing? But because I enjoyed what I was doing, I would spend hours on hours learning and building the company. I never viewed it as work, instead, for me, it was my passion and it felt good seeing what you were creating help others feel good about themselves.

Quite honestly, it's easy to get in our own way. It’s easy to come up with excuses and justify not getting started. It’s easy to put your idea away - and what's even easier is convincing yourself of the notion, “I’m going to start when I have more experience” or “I’m going to start first thing next year.”

It’s difficult to start taking the steps. And that’s exactly why you should start taking them. There is NEVER a perfect time to start pursuing your passion.

What are you thinking about pursuing that you haven't yet started?
