As we head into the last quarter of 2022, you may be feeling the pull to end the year on a high. Perhaps you started the year with good intentions and plans…but other things got in the way?
But the reality is, there is always something that will get in the way.
If you’re looking for perfect timing, or the ideal conditions, then chances are you could be waiting for a while. And although feeling prepared will help your confidence, procrastinating and letting time slip away, will eat into your confidence even more.
It’s a cliche that “we always regret the chances we didn’t take”, but regret and frustration from not taking action can really eat away at self esteem. And it impacts how likely we are to put ourselves forward for things in the future.
Recognise where you might be holding yourself back by waiting, and ask yourself whether waiting is actually serving you in the long term.
If not now, when?
