What it takes to get started


Not a thing.

Not money.
Not an office.
Not an expensive camera.
Or the newest laptop.
Or an investor.
Or a microphone.
Or rich parents.

You just need one simple thing.

You need to start.

And then, you should never stop.
Ever. Again.

Whatever happens, never.

And if this one thing doesn’t work out, do your next thing.
And the next. And the next.

Learn your lessons. Get back up again. Dust off your shoulders.
And don’t give up.

Until one day one thing works out.
Until it all finally starts to make sense.

Until the small pieces start to make a beautiful picture.
The picture that was there all this time but you just couldn’t see it, yet.

And that’s it.

That’s all it takes.

  1. I was told by my philosophy professor how to know this heavy stuff like he did and he said it was like eating a 12-foot sandwich. “One bite at a time.” “Until one day one thing works out. Until it all finally starts to make sense.” Love that. Sharing on Twitter. 🙂

  2. Ahhhh yes. I had been talking about starting this some time ago. I’ve planned, planned and planned some more. Finally I just jumped in and have just kept going. Every day we progress just a little but at the end of this year, that little is going to be a lot. Thank you for the encouragement. I’m 15 days into a 365 journey and it’s a little overwhelming so your like and follow went a long way.
