In a hurry? Check for readiness.

Have you ever felt like you wanted something to happen NOW? Right now.
Maybe you have been planning, or waiting, or expecting or working towards something and now, you're done. It's time to get satisfaction.

Yea, I know the feeling.

When I feel that way, I check myself to see if I'm being impatient. In a hurry. Premature. IF I'm really ready. How do I check?

Again with the definitions:
1. Prepared or available for service, action, or progress: I am ready to work. The soup will be ready in a minute. The pupils are ready to learn to read.
2. Mentally disposed; willing: He was ready to believe her.
3. Likely or about to do something: She is ready to retire.
4. Prompt in apprehending or reacting: a ready intelligence; a ready response.
5. Available: ready money.

So first check is to be prepared. Homework done. Plan in place. Showered, shaved and shoes on.
Then it has to be something we're 'likely' to do - carry out and complete.
If we think we're in a hurry for something and it's not showing up, maybe, we're not really clear on what we're attracting?? We think we want it, however the mixed signals we give the Universe may net fuzzy results.
Swift response to the green light is next. If we say we're ready, when the opportunity arrives, we must be ready to move with it. That's why being prepared is so important.

If we jump into something too soon (like a new business venture) without the education and training, we may anticipate results and yet not quite be ready.
Really ready to take on the job, follow through with the plan and have the confidence in place to say and do what needs to be done.

Life is so generous. We want to be ready to receive.
Maybe 2010 is the year to check our list.


  1. This is so true! I was so "ready" to get my business rolling in August, but then as time passed and months passed, I realized I wasn't really ready. I wasn't ready to have a place to work, wasn't ready with a plan to show others how I do it, wasn't ready to have a plan to support those who choose my services.

    I am feeling better about this as we work together. I realize I am not quite, totally ready yet, but so much closer than previously!

  2. As a Personal Coach and Strategist, my job is to help other people be successful. Every day I hear people talk about many of the same obstacles;

    I've been in the business 25 years and I still don't know what to say when someone asks me what I do.
    I can't get my downline to do anything. They sign up and then drop out.
    I need to find better people.
    I'm terrible at follow up. I can usually get people to try the products, but often they won't stay with the program.
    I have very little time and not much money. How can I be successful?
    I've tried everything. Nothing really seems to work for me.
