Getting Started

Say a prayer to have faith in myself and patience with the process. And then dive in!

I want to start my own business. I have thought about it for years. There was always some reason to wait or some amount of fear that would stop me in my tracks. Well it is time to get started.

You may ask why would I say this. Well, it boils down to that timeless saying which says that you will always regret the things you did not do more than anything else. I don’t want to have regret or that lingering feel of “What if?” in the pit of my stomach.

I have read about authors and bloggers who just said that they just had to start writing even if some days were better than others. I have listened to YouTubers who said that you just need to hit the record button. Plus, I have learned about numerous people in history who decided to go for it and to not back down when things got rough. They may have even failed numerous times, but continued to believe in their goal or dream.

That is when I have to ask myself. What do they have that I don’t? Why are they special?

The answer is easy to see, but hard to follow through on. They just decided to have faith over fear. Their dreams were bigger than the negative self-talk or the naysayers. They understood the concept of eating an elephant one bite at a time.

I have decided to follow their advice. I am tired of talking myself out of something I’ve wanted since I can remember. I just need to change my perspective and move forward with faith that I can achieve the dreams that God has put in my heart. He created me with these passions and desires for a reason. I can’t believe I have tried to hold myself back for so long.

I am sure some of you have felt or still feel that way at this moment. It is time to seize the day and use that potential that we have been given. Are you ready to take the first step? YES!
