What Are You Waiting For?

“On the Plains of Hesitation bleach the bones of countless millions who, at the dawn of victory, sat down to wait, and waiting—died.
George W. Cecil
“Are you waiting on a lightning strike? Are you waiting for the perfect night? Are you waiting til the time is right? What are you waiting for? Do you wanna learn to deal with fear? Do you wanna take the wheel and steer? Don’t you wait another minute here. What are you waiting for?”
Why does it seem that when we want something to happen or to make a change we end up hesitating or pausing before we actually pull the trigger.
Sometimes we stop, we seem to be waiting to make the move.
What are we waiting for? Why are we holding back?
Maybe we are hesitating or waiting until we get the perfect feeling or some sort of confirmation that it's "ok" to go forward.
Some people don't hesitate, they just take action but most of us will waiver.
An interesting by product of this is that by waiting and not making a move things are decided for us. The situation changes, things get taken off the table or by our inaction we have defaulted and the decision gets made for us.
So on a deeper level you have made a move, you've chosen inaction and allowed the course of events to make your move for you.
