Boldness has Genius // Motivating Your Mondays
Motivating Your Mondays
“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust
You might be sitting back thinking about that which you know you can do very well, but also evaluating the timing.
The question then becomes when is the “right time”? Since there are two sides to every story, especially as it pertains to there or there-not being a right time; lets look at John Maxwell’s chapter, The Law of Timing (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership). In chapter 19, The Law of Timing, John Maxwell covers “Timing Is Everything”.
- The Wrong action at the Wrong Time Leads to Disaster
- The Right Action at the Wrong Time Brings Resistance
- The Wrong Action at the Right Time Is a Mistake
- The Right Action at the Right Time Results in Success
So in order to answer your question, you must do a little bit of homework. Using this list of factors from within The Law of Timing chapter to prepare for the timing of your genius, you can gauge whether it is the right time for you:
- Understanding: Do you have a firm grasp on the situation?
- Maturity: Are your motives right?
- Confidence: Do you believe in what you are doing?
- Decisiveness: Can you initiate action with confidence and win people’s trust?
- Experience: Have you drawn upon wisdom from others to inform your strategy?
- Intuition: Have you taken into account intangibles such as momentum and morale?
- Preparation: Have you done everything you must to setup yourself up for success?
There are many people who say to just jump in and start doing it, that you will gain everything listed as you grow; but in many cases, that is where failure is at its highest. Where many potentially great entrepreneurs miss out on the impact they could have had on the world.
Now, I am also going to somewhat contradict myself here; Waiting too long can also determine whether or not you are successful. This is where Understanding plays a massive role; understand if the marketplace is primed for your BOLDNESS, if so Begin It!
