Sometimes we tell ourselves that we would like to start our breakthrough when we have more money, other times we complain about the lack of time or postpone our projects to another time: 'when I finish university'. 'when I am retired', 'after I have moved'. Try to let go of excuses and justifications and of do not take steps backwards, only steps forward.
