“Life is not a dress rehearsal. The curtain is up, and you are on. So get out there and give it your best shot.” – Unknown

As kids, we had the opportunity to do show and tell in school.

How many of us stressed about it overnight?

How many of us wondered how we’d do?

How many of us rehearsed, practiced our talk in the mirror, and timed ourselves?

Thank God our innocence didn’t know of those things.

Sure, we learn to be “professional” in our work as we grow and mature.

Yet let’s not let go of the reason for it all underneath: sharing our current evolvement of Self.

If we can get there, amid all of our professionalism, that’s movement in the right direction.

What kills that forward movement of Self is all the good reasons why we’re not ready.

What can you declare yourself ready for today, anyhow and anyway?

Got showtime?

“Do not be afraid of improving slowly. Be afraid of standing still.” –Leo Babauta
