We don’t realise the enormous power of just simply….. Starting. How many times have you had an idea and then you just let it go. You think about it but then somehow you just talk yourself out of it. I am sure literally everyone who is reading this has had these moments. Sometimes we just start overthinking and over analysing. We feel we are not good enough or thousands of other petty reasons like these. I say petty because I know for a fact that 99% of those “reasons” are just made up in our head (I am guilty of this too). Unfortunately, most of us have been conditioned to doubt ourselves and unless we make a voluntary effort to change this mindset, we will just keep on overthinking about our ideas. (more on this later). I’ll try to keep this one really short and sweet.
The only way to convert that idea/thought into a reality is to just simply START. It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about being right. It’s all about starting. Just start! You will learn on the way. Even if you fail miserably, you’ll be better equipped for your next task. I realise that for some of us, not starting is mainly due to the fear of failure. But we have to understand that failing is beautiful. It is the very process of failing that guides us towards the light. I’ll end this one by sharing a quote I had read earlier.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.”
