This is Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome to this week’s episode of Minutes on Growth. Last week we discussed commitment issues and how other people’s display of lack of commitment is a reflection of our own commitment issues. This week i want to discuss the concept of being ready. In 2015, I was walking my dog in Green Park in London, when I suddenly experienced something magical. Out of no where, an idea for a children’s book rushed into my mind and words just kept flowing in. I started uttering them out loud and moments later i realized it wasn’t just random words, it was a full on script. I was shocked. I felt as if divine intelligence had taken over. Mind you, I’ve always been a fan of writing and reading, and it was always my intention to write a book, but I never felt ready. Anyways, I immediately ran home and I started writing down everything I could remember, but that evening , as the sun started to set, I closed my laptop and told my self that I just wasn’t ready and that I would go back to it when I finished my degree. 2 years later as I’m looking at the degree that is now on my wall, I keep asking myself why am I still not ready? Perhaps, I am ready. In fact I was ready, even back then, it was just my fear of not succeeding that held me back. Because if I wasn’t ready, the universe would have not delivered the idea of the book to me. Ideas are gifts that are given to us at the right time, and at the right place. It is up to us to be brave enough to pursue them. It is up to us to realize that the only thing holding us back from achieving our full potential is ourselves. So take a moment and ask yourself, when was the last time you stopped yourself from pursuing an idea, or a dream or a goal because you didn’t feel ready? Your dreams and goals are there for a reason. You are ready. So just trust yourself and Trust that the universe always has your back.
Thanks for listening,
Talk to you next week!
Love & Light, Tannaz Hosseinpour
