LMTV #84: Getting Ready to BE Ready

Do You Ever Postpone Something Because You Don’t Think You’re Ready Enough?

We all have things in our lives that are important to us, things that we really want to accomplish or things that we want to share with others. And, naturally, we want to be proud of what we do and how we show up in the world. The question is:

How perfect does our creation have to be before we’re willing to reveal it to the world?

For some of us, it seems like we believe we have to be super-heroes—completely polished and poised and practiced to perfection—before we dare step out and share what it is we have to offer. We have this nagging story in our heads that, before we let anyone see our creation, we have to:

  • fix this little flaw over here;
  • add that feature over there;
  • make sure that we address every conceivable objection that might come up.

In short, we are never quite ready. Instead, we are spending all our time

Getting Ready to BE Ready!

One of the great ironies of life—if you pause and reflect on it—is that everything is perfect already—at least in this moment. The only place that imperfection really exists is within our ego-minds, which has a quirky tendency to remind us of all our mistakes of the past and to imagine that those same mistakes will show up in the future! The problem is, if we allow ourselves to buy into the drama created by this infinite loop, then we spend no time at all in the present moment and so we cannot appreciate its beauty and perfection. Instead, we allow our ego-minds to bounce us back and forth between the past and the future. And so, in this way, we justify our own procrastination…and then wonder why we’re not getting anywhere!
