You won’t be ready for every challenge. There’s just no way that’s possible. You won’t be ready for every role, every stage, or every test.
Sometimes you won’t feel ready even though you are. Sometimes you will feel ready even though you’re not. It’s difficult to tell the difference between these moments.
So what are we to do?
Accept that despite not being ready, despite not feeling ready, willingness to step forward into the fray is worth the experience. It’s through that willingness that you forge your strength and form yourself.
You will never know your true readiness until you step forward and learn the truth in the fray where we all discover it.
Everything is training for something. Do the work.
