Day #157: The Best Time Is Now

Dreaming is sometimes the best way to escape reality and really identify what it is you want to be doing. We all have ambitions hidden away that we wish to pursue. The problem is, we struggle to take the first step necessary to achieve it. It may be the hardest action to do (taking the first step) but once you do, you will never regret it. The best time is now.

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb

Think of it like this… An investor views trees as investments. The best time to start investing was 20 years ago. The second best time to start investing is now. “It’s not timing the market, it’s time in the market.” Time in the market basically means the longer you have investments, the longer your investments have been growing and making you money. Hence, like your dreams, the sooner you start, the sooner you learn, the sooner you grow, and the sooner you will be thriving in the big wide world. INVEST IN YOURSELF. Start today.

Still not getting it?

Here are some more things you should do to successfully take the first step:

1. Believe in your dream

2. Visualize your dream

3. Expect a hard way ahead

4. Take one bite at a time

My challenge to you is to first identify what it is you want to do, then start to work through these 4 steps.

But seriously, the only real way to get your feet off the ground is to jump and just take the plunge.
