Don’t Wait for a Sign to Arrive!
Returning to Tim Hoch’s Thought Catalog article,“10 Ways You’re Making Your Life Harder Than It Has To Be” we’re going to tackle point number 5,“Waiting for a Sign.”
Chances are you or someone you know have at some point uttered the phrase, “I’m not sure if it’s the right time. I’m just waiting for a sign.” Of course, there is something to be said for a belief in fate or a higher power, which is typically what this phrase is referring to. But at some point, it’s important that you take your success into your own hands.
Think of it this way: would you rather take charge of your own destiny, or sit around and wait in hopes that someone will do it for you? If you are truly concerned with achieving success in your life, you need to take responsibility for reaching out and grabbing it yourself. Even if fate plays a role in our lives, it doesn’t hurt to try to influence fate ourselves. The last thing you want is to miss out on a major opportunity because you didn’t get the “sign” you were waiting for.
