Many have said that the wished that they discovered themselves at an earlier point in their lives and they rue the lost time. However, I don’t subscribe to that because what we don’t know is whether or not we were ready at that earlier time. I suspect that the answer is that they were not and some things had to happen before they got to that point.
I think there are 2 parts to this:
- Are we ready to make a change?
- Are we ready to deal with the possible consequences?
Each is a significant hurdle on its own.
