Raise your hand if you’ve ever talked yourself out of something – telling yourself, “I’m not ready”. Undoubtedly, every single hand is raised right now.
James Clear recently shared his thoughts on the one key decision successful people make: Even when they’re not ready, they choose to start anyway.
“If you’re working on something important, then you’ll never feel ready. A side effect of doing challenging work is that you’re pulled by excitement and pushed by confusion at the same time. You’re bound to feel uncertain, unprepared, and unqualified. But let me assure you of this: what you have right now is enough. You can plan, delay, and revise all you want, but trust me, what you have now is enough to start.
It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to start a business, lose weight, write a book, or achieve any number of goals… who you are, what you have, and what you know right now is good enough to get going. We all start in the same place: no money, no resources, no contacts, no experience. The difference is that some people — the winners — choose to start anyway.”
You’ve got a new business idea. You’re looking to take your organization to the next level. You’re passionate about getting your book into the hands of thousands…
If you don’t start, where will you be? Right where you are. But what if you do? Where could you be?
We can help build your brand. Your friends can help provide support. Investors can help take things to the next level. But if you don’t start, none of that matters. And maybe, now’s as good a time as any.
What you have right now is enough to start.
