Waiting - The Antithesis of Progress


I talk to a lot of people who tell me about how they would like their lives to change.

They want more money. They want a deeper relationship with their partner. They want to lose 20 pounds. They want their business to take off. They want a greater work-life balance.

We talk about what my coaching includes and my program offerings and why working on our beliefs creates change. They get excited. They know deep down they need this for themselves. They start to dream.


And then they stop.


There is just too much going on right now, I’ll have to do it another time.

We just had a bunch of bills come through, I can’t afford it right now.

I just got hit with another project at work, I’ll have to wait until next round.

I’ve got a lot on my plate right now. I’ll get it all taken care of and then I’ll reach out to you.

I hear these things from clients and I have said them too.


Here is the thing. When we push the pause button on the things that we desire and that we know intuitively that we need, we continue to create the exact same reality that we are currently living in. Our lives are not just happening to us. ‘Life getting in the way’ of the things we want is actually a direct result of the choices we make each and every day. Despite our efforts to manifest more of what we want, we continue to focus on where we are. When we choose to ‘wait for the right time’, what we need to accept is that we are going to be waiting for a really, really, really long time.


If you follow the Law of Attraction, then you know that we attract what we focus on. We might be working really hard at this focus. We might be practicing gratitude and writing all the affirmations in order to help us manifest more time, more money, greater vitality, more love, etc. But when the opportunity to work on these things comes up, and we decide instead to wait, and essentially de-prioritize what it is that we say we want, the universe gets confused. Wouldn’t you be confused? Think about if this kind of energy existed with a partner. You’d be living in a yo-yo land of ‘what the fuck?!’ You said A, but you did B.

The universe is no different.


It’s all about energy. The things and feelings that we desire are things and feelings that exist in a higher energy frequency than where we are currently living. We want more love, money, balance joy. In order to bring more of these high vibing energies into our life, we have to rise to meet them. They will not come to us where we are. We have to start moving towards them. We have to be in action. We have to change. We have to progress.


Waiting is the antithesis of progress.

Waiting is accepting life as it is over and over again and creating the same reality.

Waiting means you stay where you are.


What is it that is really making us wait?

Our beliefs.

Many of these beliefs are rooted in fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of failure. Fear of what that new life would actually look like. Fear of what others might think of us.

Or perhaps it is a belief that we don’t actually deserve these things that we want in our life. That we aren’t actually worthy of them. That we should just be grateful for what we have and be happy with enough.


These beliefs are unique to each of us, but until we are willing to look at them, they will keep us where we are. Waiting. Without knowing it, we choose to wait and essentially block our opportunity to progress to what we want. We prioritize other things and choose other things so that we don’t have to step into the uncomfortable place of looking at our beliefs. We wait and life stays the same.


When we choose to wait, we send an energetic message to the universe. Despite all the asking and praying and manifesting we are doing, the message the universe gets is that we are not ready to receive it. We are blocking the change that we say we want. When we wait, we are focussed on where we are and so we will get what we have always gotten.


You might be thinking, ‘but how do I take the leap when my current circumstances, be them money or time or support, don’t allow for it?’

You trust.

You trust in the energy of the universe and believe that when you stop waiting, the universe will start delivering. The energy you put out will attract the energy that you want. You don’t get to decide the how’s and why’s. You just have to lean into the fear and the icky unknown feelings and trust that it is all going to work out for you. You have to jump!


It all starts when you start. It starts when you say yes. It starts when you stop waiting and take action to create the life you desire.


If you have been waiting for your big break, stop. YOU need to start.
