Starting is hard.
You want to start, but you don’t how yet.
You want to be good, but you don’t think you’re ready.
You want to just do it, but everything feels terrifying and unclear.
The weird thing about starting is —
It’s easier to start when you’ve already started.
Habit and momentum carry you forward.
But when you are starting out (or thinking about starting) you might as well be standing in quicksand. You haven’t built up the creative muscle yet to push through difficult moments.
That’s why getting (forcing / incentivizing, / tricking, / faking) yourself to start is essential to working on your dreams. If you don’t start, nothing happens. Dreams are built every time you step up and go to work on them.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
