BEWARE of Trying to Find the "Perfect Time" to Start Something New!

by Jimmy Hays Nelson 

Wow- how time flies!  This video was my first post when we launched NELSONGY FITNESS.  As you saw in the video, I wasn’t really sure what I was doing when I launched this blog.  The site, you see now, has come a LONG way and had many facelifts. I also think I make much better videos now.  But none of what you see now would exist if I hadn’t decided to start.

Trust me when I say that it was not an ideal time for me to start something new.  This video was recorded 4 days before the birth of my son!  I had a lot of excuses and reasons to wait for a better time to start a new venture.

Have you ever done that?  You want to eat better, or start exercising, or launch a side business that you are really passionate about.  However, you keep putting it off waiting for the perfect time to start.  You say things like: “When the kids go back to school”, “When I get paid NEXT week”, “When life calms down a little” –  Let me let you in on a little secret:

Life will NEVER slow down or stop to allow you to finally start something!!!

One of my favorite authors, Brian Tracy, has a funny bit where he talks about people living on ‘Someday Isle’.  Those people that always say “Someday I’ll ……”

I used to be the mayor of Someday Isle.   But there has to be a time in your life when you say, “Enough is Enough!”

If you keep doing what you have always done, you will continue to receive what you’ve always had!

This blog is a small example of just getting started.  I knew very little about blogging, but I was willing to start.  I was teachable.  It really seems like NELSONGY FITNESS launched yesterday.  Then I saw this video, and realized that it has almost been 2 years since I recorded that!

Think of where you were 2 years ago.  Did you feel like you would be further along in your life, fitness, or business?  Was there something that you wanted to do then that you still haven’t started?

Then what are you waiting for?  Let today be your starting day!  And the best part, you don’t have to do this alone.  I surrounded myself with knowledgeable people when I started both my weight loss and blogging journeys.   I’m here to help you get started and create some momentum.

I can’t wait until we get to look back and say, “Remember when we got started.  Look how far we have come!”

If you are ready to partner with me to reach your goals, I invite you to stop by my Facebook page and let me know what you’ve been putting off that you’re ready to take the first step on now!!

In this thing together- Coach Jimmy
