What are you waiting for?


What’s that one thing that you just need to happen?
….and if it happens…all the doors will just swing wide open!

How long have you been waiting for this one thing?

All of us tend to have that thing, that excuse…that reason…why we can’t do something great…something risky…something we’re passionate about…something that will make us better than we are today.

Because if this one thing falls into place, the risk is reduced and any failure would be a little less embarrassing…and definitely not as painful.

To be clear, the question I’m asking is:

Are you in the waiting room of your success?

If so, I’ve got some great perspective from a well-known doctor.
Read below:

Credited to “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss



“The Waiting Place…
…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come,
or a plane to go or the mail to come,
or the rain to go or the phone to ring,
or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or a No or waiting for their hair to grow.

Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.

Everyone is just waiting.”

Isn’t it thrilling how valid Dr. Seuss’ wisdom was in the books we read as children?

Somehow he knew that most of us would get caught waiting!

He ends this portion of his poem with positive declarations and affirmations by saying:

“NO! That’s not for you!
Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying.
You’ll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing.
With banner flip-flapping, once more you’ll ride high!
Ready for anything under the sky.”

Want my advice?

Stop waiting!
Do something!
Action trumps everything!

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” ~ Will Rogers

We can’t afford for you to wait. WE all win when you take action, take a risk and do great work.
…and stay inspired, it’s a lifestyle choice!
