Eliminate This Word from Your Vocabulary

Girl Leaping Into Lake

Write the word “ready” down on a piece of paper.

Do it now. I’ll wait.

Now take your pen and draw a line through it.

READY

You need to know that the word “ready” is not your friend.

Eliminate this word from your vocabulary.

Because real life is not like school.

In school you study (the more the better) to get a good grade.

In REAL life … You need to stop studying.

Stop “reading up” on the subject. (You’re stalling.)

Life is NOT an intellectual exercise. [Tweet that]

The longer you make it one, the more time you lose.

Do it.

In REAL life… You need to get a bad grade.

Nobody actually gets it right on the first try.

If you think you’re supposed to, you’ve missed the point.

Get your ass out there and get an F.

Yes, I mean fail.

Then do it again.

You’ll get a D or a C the next time (if you stick around long enough to learn something.)

You will NEVER be ready.

Stop waiting for that day.

And LIVE.

(You’ll learn a hell of a lot more than you did in school.)

Please tell me: What will you do today, ready or not?

Today I will write like a mother trucker for my tribe, even if I’m not totally clear on my perfect message yet. Thanks, Amy!
