Sometimes the fear is too strong.
It can overwhelm us and prevent us from going forward.
That’s where low barriers can be a godsend. Low barriers are ways we can put our toes in the water. It’s a half step towards making the dream happen. Is it better than total immersion? A whole step? No. But half of something is better than a whole lot of nothing. Essential, we are breaking down our big hairy goals into executable bite-sized chunks.
Low barriers to entry can show us that ‘hey, this isn’t so bad after all’.
Want to start a blog/vlog or podcast? Start with making one episode. You don’t have to post it, you just have to hit record and show yourself that you can.
Want to start a freelance business? Start by becoming your own client. Design or code something you want to create first.
Want to get healthy? Start with breakfast. Eat whatever you want during lunch or dinner, but focus on making breakfast as healthy and as possible. (Or try Intermittent Fasting)
Make the first step easy. Show yourself how good it can feel to do good for yourself and your aspirations.
Stay BOLD. Keep Pursuing,
