Many a time, most of us have dreams, aspirations, goals and so on and so forth that we want to pursue. Sometimes they seem too big to pursue…sometimes too it seems it is going to take ages for it to be finally accomplished or whatever thoughts you may have…well JUST DO IT.
I am a victim, in fact, we all are…we like to comfort ourselves with too many excuses such that in our mind’s eye our goals seem invalid or we are dwelling on the money we don’t have, the tools we wish we had, the course we would want to take but don’t have time and many others. Well, well, well, today is the day of putting those excuses behind. Start with what you have…Start with something small…Start from somewhere.
Every successful business or person started from somewhere, it did not have to be huge in fact they did not need many people to approve of their goals before they did (Look up the stories of Google, Amazon, KFC and how they started)…they just had to summon the courage to put their ideas into action. Nobody rewards ideas, but rather output. Imagine if those who invented phones, internet, computers etc, were thinking to themselves nobody would notice them or people would not like their inventions or whatever, would we have benefited from those inventions today? And remember the laptops we are using today was not invented as it is now..in fact, there were typewriters before someone improved upon them then we had desktop computers then laptops, palmtops, Ipads and what have you. So do not doubt the value of your talent or ideas because there will be a market for it…even if you think everybody is doing it…YOU ARE NOT EVERYBODY!
I know people who want to start projects or a blog or a youtube channel among others but are being held back by themselves…in fact, I was also within that category… I should have started blogging about 4 years ago but of course I was thinking to myself what someone will say or think or the fact that there are millions of bloggers worldwide but I decided that I do not care because so far as I have the desire and talent to write, I would not want to die with it and then on my deathbed wish I had done it…TOO LATE!
To be honest, we do not have much time on this earth. Life is VERY short and I think if we really thought about it we will start doing the things we know we want to do or better put fulfilling our God-given purpose other than allowing fear and uncertainty (which is not from God) to hold us back!
Thus, whatever you want to do, even if you feel you don’t have all the resources, which you might never have or not ready which you may never be…just say to yourself I will start from where I am having the big picture in mind and of course working towards it!
P.S Do not always discuss your ideas with just ANYBODY…because there are dream killers and trust me they might be all around you. Only discuss with those you KNOW will offer sound advice regarding your ideas. Be careful who you even share with eventually. Your ideas are worth protecting!
Thanks for reading and have a productive week!
