  5. Prashant Agarwal:

    We often prevaricate, think and overthink, and hold ourselves back from going for the things we want to achieve most in life. The main reason for this is we tend to analyze our circumstances too much and end up thinking, “This is not the right time!”. We wait, we evaluate and stay cocooned in the illusion that we should delay until circumstances change for the better. Little do we understand that “Time and Tide Waits for None!” Circumstances will not change themselves, the best time will never come, we have to CREATE the right time, and the best time is RIGHT NOW! So go ahead, take the bull by its horns and make NOW the BEST time that ever could be.
