The Hardest Part is…

getting started.

getting started, finish line, accomplishing your goalsIt’s where excuses appear and dreams disappear.

When you think about it goals are merely a means to an end. Momentum is built after goal accomplishment. Confidence is gained through the process.

Even after knowing that, STILL the hardest part is getting started. That’s why it’s not as important to get it completely right the first time. You and I learn by trial and error. Get the ball rolling by doing something (rather than nothing)!

Most lifestyle entrepreneurs want to monetize their hobbies/passions. I suggest doing this part-time before quitting your day job. Figure out a way to make money doing what you love. It may happen slow, but if you don’t try how will you know if it works or not? It’s like old basketball adage, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.

Another crucial factor is accountability (or lack thereof). Tell a friend. Write it down somewhere you will see it daily. Hire a coach.

Do whatever it takes to get started because after you do, it’s much easier to keep going.

  1. So true, Scott! It’s not always the brightest or most educated that succeed. Motivation, initiative and persistence can drive almost anyone to achieve their dreams. Taking that initial leap of faith is often scary, but one never knows the possibilities if they don’t at least try.
