I can’t tell you how many people never get started because of this very reason. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re one of them. You’ve been putting something off for a while now, waiting for the perfect timing. You don’t want to make any mistakes. I get it! You don’t want to be embarrassed or look like an idiot. You want to make sure you have all the answers. You want to be an expert before you even get started. I totally get it! But the truth of the matter is, you’re not going to be an expert until after you get started, until after you make mistakes. You’re going to make them. And that’s okay! Everyone does! Every successful person, every leader, every mentor you look up to, they’ve all made mistakes. The difference with them is they started.
To be satisfied or not to be satisfied, that is the question! I see people struggle with this a lot. I’ve struggled with it myself in fact. Maybe you feel unsatisfied in some area of your life and you’re left feeling guilty about it, like feeling unsatisfied is a bad thing. The reason we think of it in a negative light is because many people tend to associate being unsatisfied with being unthankful or unhappy. But believe it or not, we can be thankful, happy and not satisfied.
