“Sara, I’ve been getting your emails for 7 years and I’m finally ready to sign up for your program.”
This is the email I got from a prospective gym member back when I had my gym.
This woman had been waiting for 7 year - SEVEN YEARS - to finally qualify herself to change her life.
She came in to check out the gym a few days later and we immediately hit it off. After about 10 minutes, she confided in me, “I can’t believe I waited so long. I keep thinking where I would be if I just decided to start earlier. I’m so mad at myself.”
I have to tell you, I have had this conversation with so many women. We excel at waiting, don’t we??
Waiting to join the gym.
Waiting to go for the promotion.
Waiting to ask for the raise.
Waiting to ask for help.
Waiting to start the hobby.
Waiting to take time for yourself.
Waiting to take a chance.
Waiting to say YES.
Waiting to say NO.
Waiting to do what you want to do even if no one else gets it.
Waiting to go for it even if no one believes in you.
Waiting to choose yourself.
You know you want more - but you’re afraid of failure, worried what others might say, and filled with self doubt.
You wait because you think there will be a better time, a better option, another chance.
You tell yourself you’ll be more ready next week, next month, next year.
You watch others go before you and you decide they are more capable, more qualified, more worthy.
And you wait.
While you wait, you compromise your dreams, your desires, your sense of self
While you wait you chip away at your happiness and your worth.
The waiting is ruining your life.
I’m here to invite you to STOP WAITING.
Listen in to hear how you can stop waiting and start living a fuller life without regret.
