“If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the ‘right’ thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It’s like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip.” -Robert Kiyosaki
I am no great philosopher or a coach. But I make sure I learn from my mistakes and those of others. It does make me sharp and careful. Extremely careful. Sometimes I end up taking no risks at all. I think I am living in such a shell now. A no risk zone. Playing it all safe. Having a lot of ideas, but executing none. A big-time procrastinator. Something very far from what I wanted and yearn to be.
I have the immense urge to try something new, change my career path, learn things I have always wanted to, make time to do the things I love to do. I must have written tons of such posts that lie in my draft. I bear my heart open out to the world, and that is becoming dangerous day by day given the readership.
I think of why I first began writing and what writing has done to me and then the fear goes away bit by bit. One day I shall have the courage to share some untold stories that need to be told. Some travel. A few personal, some funny and some heart-wrenching. But I have always hoped to inspire, make people smile and hope that some posts really fill in the fire that never burns out. What I mean is I want to make a difference.
While I break my writing block and out of the blue, on an odd day, I promise myself that I will be consistent, continue to touch and will write bravely. I start today.
I have decided to come out of the safe shell I have built for myself, do things new and most importantly just start.
Is there anything you have been putting off and procrastinating for long?
Why don’t you join me and let us just START!
That’s wonderful, Ramya. Good that you broke out of the shell. Wish you more brave writing.
Love that quote, it’s spot on. I’m glad that you are expressing what you are feeling, Ramya. Take that plunge, it’s always well worth the risk!
Start. The path will pave it’s way.
