@cristinagareau and I were talking about the moment we pulled the pin on our previous life, turned the ignition, and drove towards our dreams. Where did we find the confidence to really go for it? Maybe it was our experience, and relevant skills, but maybe it was our ignorance. I think I got myself out the door on both; trusting that I could overcome the challenges I was ignorant about.
In most Q and A sessions, people will ask questions that point towards this moment, and the fear that surrounds it. The fear associated with chasing ambition.
Here is a checklist to complete prior to getting out the door. Are you: scared - intimidated - uncertain about the scope of your undertaking? If you answered yes to one or all of them, then chances are you're ready to start trying. Then, en route, find mentors, learn skills, and find out how big this undertaking really is.
The secret is you don't get clarity and perfect confidence before you start. You just start.
Today you're ready to take on your ambition.
