How do you stand out in a world of people doing exactly what you are trying to do too?

Extraordinary effort.

Anyone can start a blog, make films on YouTube, create an online business, start a fashion brand, design, code… etc

But just because you can, doesn’t mean you will. And just because you are, doesn’t mean you will always succeed.

Starting is hard, really hard.
But anyone can start.

Starting is the new normal. If you’re starting a side business, you’re still in the ordinary category. Not that your business is mediocre or bad, it’s just that everyone and their grandma is trying to do it too.

I probably stole this line from someone —
Extraordinary results require extraordinary effort.

(🤔 I might have stolen it from myself — a previous blog… lol)

Standing out requires starting, and then some.

It requires

Taking care of yourself — eating well, sleeping well.
Trying new things, creative and bold things
Continually Improving and Iterating
Listening to what you need, not what you want
And spinning problems, failures, and setbacks into opportunities.

STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
— Josh Waggoner
