The hard part is starting.
It is putting pen to paper. It is sketching out ideas. It is being willing to sit down and write that outline, e-mail, blog post, or business plan.
It is the day you are willing to stop talking about it and to take one step, no matter how small, to actually doing it.
To be able to resist the resistance, lean in to the fear, and sit through the impatience. To push past that uncomfortable feeling that comes every time you tip toe the borders of your comfort zone and for once not go running back into the safety of what has always been. To take that step out. Into the uncertain. And into the unknown.
Be willing to decide. Be willing to begin. Be willing to try.
Because what we know is life does not begin when you are finished.
Life begins when you start.
“People wait. They wait for the elusive day when they’ll finally have enough time (guess what? – you never will), enough education (there’s always more to know), enough money (no matter how much you make, someone will always have more) . . . People wait until that fateful day when they wake up and realize that while they were sitting around paying dues, earning their keep, waiting for that elusive ‘perfect time’ their entire life has passed them by.”
My word for the year is “create.” During the first quarter of this year, I have tried to consciously take and make steps forward no matter how small or trivial they seem. Eventually the small steps begin to accumulate and add up, right?
