Life comes with many challenges and eventually, people are going to ask you to do things that you’re not ready for yet. Sometimes it feels like you’re never going to be ready and you don’t want to do what they ask of you yet.

Your wife may want to have children, your boyfriend may want to get married. Your parents may be forcing the idea of college into your head or you may be asked to move out as soon as you graduate high school. There are so many things that can hit you in life and you won’t be ready for them.

Not only in your home life but in your work life too. Your boss can leave for vacation and it’s time for someone to step up and take care of his goals while he’s gone. It could be that you got laid off and you’d like to start your own business.

Life throws you curveballs, and your character shows most when these curveballs hit you.

You will never be ready for anything. You can prepare yourself as much as you can but there will be at least one thing that will come up in life that you won’t be ready for.Giving birth, having a baby, overcoming cancer, taking on a marathon- there will always be some type of surprise to whatever you want to do or that you’re going through.

Either way, the longer you wait and prepare yourself for an event the less likely you will ever do it. If you wait to be ready for something you’ll wait forever and do nothing.

So, let’s get to it. What is that you want to do? find out how to get started and just do it. Search up how to start your business or how to make what you want to create. Figure out who you can ask for help about the topic you want to research. Surround yourself with people who will inspire you.

You just want t take the step. The longer you stall the more you will psyche yourself out.

It’s better to move quickly than to stall and never d what you want to do. No matter the age you will find an excuse or reason to not do anything. But there’s only one good enough reason t try smething new and tha’ts simply ybecause you know you need to.

You can feel it in your bones, in your heart, it bothers you before bed. You think about it when you wake up, and it calls out to you at work.

This is your dream, your goal, your heart’s desire. It was placed in your heart from the start and only you can accomplish that dream. No other person can because only you have that specific dream placed onto your heart.

So while your inspired, motivated, and empowered it’s time to go for it. If you keep waiting the spark will leave you.

While it may be scary to try something new because of a fear of failure it is scarier to me to live a life where I ignored that calling than have chosen to follow through with it.

No matter what your calling is, I know it can be done. I know you can d it. It is totally possible for you to achieve your dream. You just got to take the first step. That first step is the most important. once you do it the rest will follow.

You don’t need a concrete plan, everything will form itself later. You don’t need all the money in the world, you just need to begin.

When I began Tru.Works, I left behind a salary and my hometown. While today things are still tough I can see progress and I can see money being made and connections happening throughout the web.

It takes time, it surely will but I can’t back down. This is my own project, my own thing. No one owns it, I won it. I did it, I don’t have to work to make someone else’s dreams come true, i make my own come true.

I’m not going to say I wasn’t scared, I surely was but I did it.

It’s still not perfect yet but it gets done. The more and more I do the better.
