Everyone needs some mid week motivation to keep the ball rolling, or to kick the ball and start!! Use this as yours and JUST START!! That goal that you've been thinking about for years, that project that you feel inspired to do but also kind of scared, just start!!
Take a step today, big or small to put yourself facing the right direction. Here are a few ideas:
- Look up how other people have done it
- Start a notebook of ideas
- Take one hour to check on sources of information
- Call a friend who is already doing it in some way, see what steps they took
- Listen to a podcast
- Lookup a Youtube video of how to...or Google it
- Buy $10 worth of supplies that can get you started
When people look back on their lives they don't regret the times that they tried and failed, they regret the times they didn't take the chances they knew they should of. If you had started to learn guitar five years ago when you first though about it, imagine how much you would know by now!
On that same note, you are also not to late to start. Oprah was in her 30s when she started her self titled show, Julia Child was in her 40s before she started cooking, Gal Gadot almost gave up acting before landing the role as Wonder Woman (yes I'm still obsessed with that movie! And we all know she was the best part about the Batman movie she was in). You're never too late to start doing what you know you should.
And if you fail...so what!! Get back up, learn from it and try again. You will feel so much more accomplishment by failing at something that you are trying than if you never tried at all!
Things take time. You may fail a few times. Learn from those failures, learn from the hard moments and be better next time! We are seeing so many "afters" the people who spend years and years trying and now are successful, we look at and see them as an overnight success. That's so not true! All of your favorites, most likely, spent years honing their craft before they started to get traction. Don't give-up because you've spent two months on your goals and aren't seeing the benefits of your hard work. It will come!! Learn from the aspects that aren't working, and relish the small success' you're seeing! One painting sold is one hundred percent more than zero paintings sold!!
What step can you take today to put yourself closer to your goal? If you already have the ball rolling, what was the first step you took to get the ball rolling?
