If you are anything like me, you used to just “wait and see”, all the time. I never had the courage to put my hand up and ask that question, even though I really wanted to know the answer. Was a little shy.
I would “wait and see” if someone else would ask, or the speaker would cover my question later.
I would “wait and see” if someone else would express the opinion I had, just to be on the safe side, just to make sure I was right.
I would just let it slide when someone was arrogant or rude or wrong. I tried to tell myself it didn’t matter, I was the better man, when actually it ate me up inside.
Got quite angry and frustrated from just not saying the things I needed to.
I know it takes courage to say and do these things, but for your own sanity, you have to.
Regret and missing out hurts more than a temporary hit to the shame.
I don’t think you’re ever going to be free of the need for courage.
You just get better at taking a gulp and jumping - doing what you need to do.
And why not?
Be clear on all those thoughts that are behind "wait and see" or it's good friend, "I'm not ready yet".
Readiness? Good enough sometimes has to be good enough. Otherwise nothing gets done.
