There Is Never A Right Moment To Go For The Thing You Want Most

There are never right moments in life.

Honestly, all we have is right now. And you can try and spin it any way you want that you’re waiting for a sign to go for it, you’re waiting to be ready. But you’ll always be waiting. But what are you waiting for exactly?

While you’re waiting for some sign someone is going to see that same thing or person and not need to wait. They simply go for the thing or person you didn’t want as bad as they did.

The reason you are so scared of saying something or doing something different is because there’s something to lose in all of this. But the greater the risk, the greater the reward.

So take a chance.

Whether it’s doing something that scares you or saying something, don’t think about what can go wrong.

Think about what can go right. Think about suddenly getting everything you ever wanted because you took a chance.

Hell, none of us know how much time we have. Don’t waste it.

None of us actually know what will happen.

But if you feel this strongly about someone or something, it’s a disservice to not go for it.

Risk it all. Hold nothing back.

I promise you there isn’t a person in the world who will be repulsed by the fact you care. There isn’t a person in the world who doesn’t want to hear these things. They will respect the shit out of you for going for it.

And there isn’t a chance you can take that will be a wrong one if your heart is in it.

Even if it doesn’t work out, at least you can walk away saying you tried and you didn’t let fear hold you back.

To me I define love and loss, not by the love that isn’t reciprocated but rather the love people don’t know you harbor in your heart, hiding away these emotions out of fear.

To me I measure success and failure by the chances we did or didn’t take when we could have.

If you are afraid of what will happen, you don’t want whatever it is bad enough because the risks you take to get there only lead to a greater reward at the end of all of this. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
