“Leap, and the net will appear.”
If you are feeling “ready” to step out, to risk, to greet an uncertain future, you’ve probably waited too long. There is no such thing as “ready.” There is only now.
Feel the fear and do it anyway.
It’s time to act.
The distance between what you want – what you clandestinely imagine in between the ritual tasks of the day – and where you are, is long.
The distance between where you are today and a first action toward what you want is embarrassingly short.
To be confused about the difference between near and far is to free your mind and bind your feet.
