We sit patiently waiting for the perfect solution, the right event, the right person or the right time to take a step to accomplish our dream. We can and have waited years for the time to take action and it never comes.
Usually we have determined what we want to have happen and during that process we have evaluated what we fear could happen. We then decide what we have to have happen to eliminate that fear before it comes into existence. We are reacting to fear that does not exist.
When we are passive like that then others determine our future and we will never catch up. There is only one way to start. Do something.
By doing something we are actively creating our future. Each action is like throwing a stone into a still pond. Everything changes. With change new possibilities open up and another stone gets tossed.
In this way we create our future instead of waiting for it.
