It’s never too late, or too early

“It’s never too late to be what you’ve always wanted to be.”

I can’t honestly remember that first time that I heard or read that quote, but most recently it hit me in the middle of an emotional battle with myself over where my life is headed. The past few months have provided huge growth moments and chances to see where my strength is and how I’d like to spend everyday. With that said, I’ve begun to drop my resistance to the calling of my passion.

The thing on my heart right now is, why on earth would l, or anyone else, resist a clear and obvious call? Is it a fear of failure? Maybe the idea of what those around us might say when we take a leap of faith is difficult to hold. Or, perhaps, we are waiting for the time to be just right. What I am finding in myself is that its all of them and they are all subdued with one simple thing…ACTION!

With the support of my wife, I’ve taken a few steps toward living my passion daily, turning it into a business, and with each step it has gotten easier. My fear of failure melts every time I expose my ideas to others. They have done no less than tell me it is a “can’t miss”.

As I’ve allowed my energy to work toward my goal, the people around me have elected to rally or retreat. Either is a blessing because it helps me see that none of the anxiety is worth it. People will always react strongly to someone driven by passion with a clear intent. If your passion and desire are big enough to cause reactions, without your trying to cause them, you are probably on to something.

Every time I take just “one more step”, the timing becomes more perfect. How is that possible? Because timing is always perfect and we are the only things standing in the way. Desire, clear intentions, and belief are the gears of the watch. When all three of those are in place, the time is right, regardless of other circumstances.

We are all capable of so much more than we allow ourselves to be. I don’t care what stage of the game you are in, you are more than your current circumstance shows. Are you ready to show it? Jeremy Heigh, at Sift Everything, wrote a post recently about what we allow ourselves to do, in spite of what we are capable. The concept is that we are, Built for Battleships but Loaded for Seagulls . Jeremy, as he has with other posts, inspired me to keep believing that I am built for greater things than I have pursued so far. So are you.

Be your best,
PJ
