It is not about perfection it is about just getting started.
Many people procrastinate starting a new journey out of fear that the outcome will not be perfect or 100% right.
That feeling is so prevalent in the early stages of starting a new venture. There are so many obstacles that people face like being afraid that it won’t work out right, fear that they will be judged, or fear that someone won’t appreciate or see the value you provide or not purchase the product, the list goes on.
The truth is you should NOT let anyone else, their opinions or your what you THINK is their opinions stop you from chasing your dreams and going after them. You, yourself are the only person stopping you. When you procrastinate starting your journey you are just allowing your own thoughts and your mind to take over and make decisions for you.
The process of actually taking action while facing your fears, is a muscle that must be conditioned. You have to intentionally train that muscle. It is almost the same concept as going to the gym and lifting those weights. In the beginning you start out at the 6-pound weights and as time goes by, you slowly increase your weights to 8-pounds, 10, 12. That is how you consistently grow.
There is no such thing as a “correct” business idea. I know that so many people are so worried and concerned that they will get it wrong, but I want you to realize that there is no rule or reason that right and wrong exist in starting a new journey. They don’t.
You may be considering something you want to pursue but even the idea of taking that first step creates fear that you may be wasting your time because the result of what you might receive may not be what you want.
THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE YOUR MINDSET!
You have two options really.
Option #1, don’t do anything, make no moves and stay exactly where you are.
Or Option #2, Make those moves and quantum leap.
The truth is that the sooner you decide what choice you want to make, the sooner you’re going to make moves and achieve your dreams and goals!
Everything you need to get moving and started in your journey is to JUST START. Don’t over think it!
When you start it might feel uncomfortable or you might even feel like a mess. It is common to feel like an imposter but that is because you are making moves that you’ve never made before now.
Try to stay focused on the process and all the new learning opportunities, not the outcome.
Your product or services will evolve, they will grow and change over time, but it is up to you to take that first step.
YOUR OWN MIND IS EXCELLENT AT PROTECTING YOU BUT NOT ENCOURAGING YOU TO GROW… BECAUSE GROWTH IS OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
Where your focus goes, energy flows, results will show.
