How Your Best Can Hold You Back

Image - Someday The concept of "only your best" can hold you back.

Your "Big Ideas" are encased in solid potential -- in a time capsule of Someday -- like a hatchet in a glass cabinet that should only be smashed in case of fire.

And maybe you're not sure your goal really warrants an action that can't be taken back.

Is it important enough to commit the energy? Should you wait for something bigger, more worthy, before you even try…?

Your greatness has always been in your future -- because that's where you need it to be.

If you don't test your potential in the present, then you can't be disappointed. And if your best wasn't good enough, you can't regret the past.

But this paralysis -- this frozen hope -- is responsible for most procrastination.

Your light won't burn any brighter just because you waited to shine.
