Carl Lewis said, “Life is about timing.”
Timing can be a pain or it can be the golden apple. When you are waiting for things to happen and they aren’t happening quick enough the timing isn’t good. But when that thing happens, and it happens at a time when all your preparation lines up, magic will occur.
You just need to be aware of everything around you and know when the timing is right. And to do that you can’t slack off, you have to persist and believe. Then the timing will be right no matter what happens.
