(Don’t) Wait

“One day I’ll be ready”, “One day I’ll get this done” - that’s a mantra we often hear our inner voice repeat. And even though there are times in day-to-day life when there is no other option than to wait and show patience, when it comes to our dreams and our goals, we often find ourselves waiting for that special moment, the right moment, to say or do that thing we always wanted to do. But: why wait? Reasons are countless, we opt to wait for practical, time-based, financial, fear based reasons, we generally do anything to avoid the touchdown, the feedback, the launch, the unknown, the new. But the opportunity to take that first step is always there and it is profound. Meet our speakers who have decided to make a change, take matters in their own hands, danced with their fear and have left the waiting queue. You might be more prepared than you think! Don’t wait for the right moment, create it!
