11 Reasons Why You Are Ready to Take the Leap


  1. You cannot stop thinking about your new idea or new job. This may feel exciting at first but then reality sets in and you feel overwhelmed and depressed.
  2. You are constantly looking at what everyone else is doing and thinking that their path is the bomb! The self-comparison can begin to feel burdensome.
  3. You feel burned out and resentful with your current situation.
  4. You ping pong back and forth between two ideas, your inner critic kicks in and tells you that both are bad options which puts you back to square one.
  5. You start to think in all or nothing terms….for example, maybe I should just quit my job and move to Montana to start a farm!
  6. You start to rationalize that maybe feeling underwhelmed; uninspired and bored is just the way it has to be.
  7. When you start to brainstorm new ideas for yourself, your inner critic steps in very quickly to tell you all the reasons why the new idea will not work out.
  8. You know that there is more to life!
  9. You start to set all these manmade timelines up in your head to procrastinate putting your dream in motion…for example, I can suffer for another year, make money and then I will make the change.
  10. You begin to make other people the problem…
  11. One day you recognize that your excitement is greater than your resistance and you take action!

So are you ready to take the leap?
