No great accomplishment was ever fulfilled without its start!
When we explore any accomplishment great or otherwise, the nature of its start, in all likelihood would not have been perfect. In fact probably even far from perfect! At the start, all the intended benefits may not have been conceptualized in their entirety, an understanding of the finer points will not have been fully known and even how to achieve the end result would not have been comprehended!
However despite all these immediate, apparent and obvious obstacles; it was the start that allowed the specific vision, the awe-inspiring dream or the life defining goal to materialize.
The start is a specific point and this is always characterized by the ONE specific action that has to be taken to establish:
1. Momentum towards your goal to start
2. The foundation for all follow on actions that define how our goal will materialise
This may be writing the first word for your novel, taking that first picture on your journey to becoming a photographer, uploading your first website, making that first sales call or signing up to get that degree you always thought wasn’t the right time to get!
Whatever your goal, Greatness begins somewhere by doing something specific…we determine what that something specific is!
How we start is as much a critical factor to determining the rest of our journey! We need to have our inside aspects all good to go:
Expect only good things!
Have the faith to know you will accomplish your goal!
Put hope into every action!
Be courageous always!
Intensify the desire to succeed!
Develop a great attitude!
Make specific plans!
Decide to be victorious!
This determines our enthusiasm, resilience, how we sow and how we contribute to those we serve! How we sow is how we will reap!
The benefit of starting is that the sooner we start the sooner we know what we need. As we progress along our journey more information becomes available, the depth and perspective of the image of our goal becomes more clearly understood.
Our goals needs and requirements, its areas of development in order for it to manifest become apparent and understood through action!
Starting allows the quality of our initial plans to be examined and gives us the benefit of adapting, perfecting and increasing the detail for our plans as the desire for our goal becomes intensified!
Starting, no matter how humble or modest the start, allows the potential momentum to be achieved. Start where you are with what you have. You may not have all the answers, resources or capabilities but by starting these elements will be attracted to you as you progress.
As in everything the full picture may never be realised in the beginning or the magnitude of our potential may not be fully appreciated!
However as we reach each mountain top, or overcome each trial, the understanding of our existing horizons (or initial limitations) is overcome and we can begin to see further and further into the distance of our future potential and capabilities!
Reject excuses! Reject what if! Reject the naysayers! Reject anything that is not in harmony with your goal!
So as you finish reading, think clearly and specifically! What is it that you have been putting off? What actions have you been delaying that you know, when they are done, will bring a monumental and positive change to how you live your life?
Step out with courage and boldly put your dream into action! Do not worry about the how, START NOW!
Don’t let the start stop you from achieving abundance!
