Just Start

The largest inhibitor to success is not starting.

We spend hours upon hours learning, planning and strategizing.

Then doubt creeps in.

What if I mess up? What if I fail?

Then 98% of us stop.

All that planning was for not.

Just start.

I think I need to learn more before I start.

Sure, pick up a book or listen to a podcast or take an online course. But then act.

Just Start.

But I don’t know everything yet. What if I mess up?

No one was fully qualified when they started. But they started. They learned on the job.

When you mess up – you will learn something the book didn’t teach you.

You will get back up again, adjust and eventually find success.

Just Start.

I really have no idea what I’m doing. I’ve read some things and talked to a few people, but everyone is way more experienced than me.

They have experience because the started. They learned. They immersed themselves. They found success.

Just Start.

It’s really intimidating. I’m not sure I can do it.

That fear? Those butterflies? They are a good thing.

It means this means something to you.

Just Start.
