In a hurry? Check for readiness

Have you ever felt like you wanted something to happen NOW? Right now. Maybe you have been planning, or waiting, or expecting or working towards something and now, you're done. It's time to get satisfaction.

Yea, I know the feeling.

When I feel that way, I check myself to see if I'm being impatient. In a hurry. Premature. IF I'm really ready. How do I check? Readiness.

Again with the definitions: 1. Prepared or available for service, action, or progress: I am ready to work. The soup will be ready in a minute. The pupils are ready to learn to read. 2. Mentally disposed; willing: He was ready to believe her. 3. Likely or about to do something: She is ready to retire. 4. Prompt in apprehending or reacting: a ready intelligence; a ready response. 5. Available: ready money.

So first check is to be prepared. Homework done. Plan in place. Showered, shaved and shoes on. Then it has to be something we're 'likely' to do - carry out and complete. If we think we're in a hurry for something and it's not showing up, maybe, we're not really clear on what we're attracting?? We think we want it, however the mixed signals we give the Universe may net fuzzy results. Swift response to the green light is next. If we say we're ready, when the opportunity arrives, we must be ready to move with it. That's why being prepared is so important.

If we jump into something too soon (like a new business venture) without the education and training, we may anticipate results and yet not quite be ready. Really ready to take on the job, follow through with the plan and have the confidence in place to say and do what needs to be done.

Life is so generous. We want to be ready to receive.
