How To Start When You Don’t Know How To Start

In one of my ebooks, The Intentional Writer, I wrote about a time when I was walking home with a friend of mine.

We were returning from Church (I think).

She asked a question about what I wanted to do with my life.

“I want to be a writer”, I said.

“Why haven’t you started”, she asked.

I didn’t know what to say.

Why hadn’t I started writing for a living then?

Perhaps, I was afraid I was not good enough.

Perhaps, i was afraid I didn’t have all i needed.

Perhaps, I was scared I was going to become a copycat.

One who pretends to be what he is not.

One who cannot make a success of himself.

Yet, the instant I started to choose to write anyway, things changed.

The moment i began to write and publish my content, whatever fear i had about making it as a writer vanished.

The more i did what i was afraid to do, the less fearful I was.

And the more confident i became.

Of course, things changed over the years.

Making a living as a writer soon became the norm.

All of these because I chose to launch out even though I was afraid.

See, you’ve read this yada-yada advice before.

So I won’t chuck it down your throat so much.

And it’s this:

You’ll never be sure how successful you’ll be.

If you don’t start to do things afraid.

You may not be as “good enough” as you would want to be.

Yet you don’t get good by doing nothing.

You get good by practicing.

By showing up daily to work. And keep working even when you don’t feel like.

The difference between those who succeed and those who don’t is always excuses and action.

The unsuccessful make excuses.

The successful take action.

Choose who you will be.
