First, identify what you have been waiting to do or start. Have you been waiting to start your self-care practice? Waiting to get healthy? Waiting to start a savings account? Waiting to forgive yourself or someone else?
Then identify the specific reasons you have been waiting:
Maybe you are waiting because that’s what you always do. Maybe you’re waiting because you’re afraid you’ll be very successful! Maybe you’re waiting because you worry you might hit some road bumps, so it’s easier to put it off until “later.” Maybe you’re waiting for the perfect conditions, or maybe you’re waiting until you think “they” will be ok with your success.
Usually, you’re waiting for something, someone, or some circumstance to change.
Once you have identified why you’ve been waiting, then make a commitment to start what you really want to do in your life!
