Start before you’re ready

Are you ready? Am I? Is
This the right time? Are
The stars aligned? Shouldn’t
We be just a little bit
Careful? What if we start
Before we’re ready?

I don’t feel ready. Do you?

What if there’s something
We missed? What if our plans
Aren’t just right? What if
The world isn’t ready for us
To succeed just yet? What if?
We could fail! We could.

I don’t feel ready. Do you?

But allow me, my friend,
To tell you a little
Secret that all great
Souls must one day
Learn: You will never
Feel ready. Never.

Start before you’re ready.

You have to start, and all
The things you had to doubt
You will work out. Truth be
Told, you have all the tools
You really need. You have your
Mind and will and your spirit.

Start before you’re ready.

Cross the bridge to begin,
And burn it behind you. Land
Your ships on foreign shores,
And burn them too. Commit to the
Future, then let your mind
Work out the rest. You’ll be fine.

Start before you’re ready.
