I just finished consulting for my Inner Circle content creation community about the courage it takes to try something new and I wanted to slide over a nugget to you.
One of the mental obstacles that can trip me up is when I think I can’t make a change or do something different because I don’t know-how.
But here’s what I know to be true: I don’t know-how is usually code for I don’t know where to start.
When we stall out because we don’t know where to begin, it’s likely because we’re too focused on the endpoint –– the finished book, the healed health issue, the weight loss, the moon landing, etc!
Change requires action, but it takes one soulful step at a time.
If you want to try something new or make a change in your life, identify what it is (be as specific as possible) and then brainstorm all the steps you can think of taking to get there.
Instead of getting overwhelmed by the finish line, chip away at it slowly, one action at a time.
Not all the actions, speed racer. One. One goal. One action. Turtle power.
Rinse and repeat.
If this feels intimidating, lean on your courage. As adults, we’re often afraid to be beginners.
We feel like we’re supposed to have it all figured out and it can feel vulnerable or embarrassing to admit that we don’t.
But a beginner’s mind is a special place to allow yourself to be. It’s ripe with openness and possibilities.
Let yourself turn the page on a new chapter of your life, even if you don’t know how or where to start. Even if you think you’re too old or too green or too…whatever. You’re not.
And no matter how long it takes to get there, find joy in the process.
Fun is Fuel. The more fun you have, the more momentum you’ll create.
There are only a few months left in the year. Now is a great time to begin thinking about who you want to become during this next trip around the sun.
Start blogging, and begin the new chapter as a successful and profitable blogger.
For the next 90 days right 1000 words daily.
If you can’t write 1000 words daily then write 500.
If you cant write 500 words daily then write 300.
If you cant run, then walk.
If you cant walk then crawl.
