I’ve survived a week of posting to my blog. It is hard to do. I can still think of excuses of why I couldn’t have done any of the last 7 posts. Each time I did it! Even today, I slept in but I’m still writing my post.
Do you find getting started is hard to do?
It’s only natural. We all think of taking the easy way, finding a reason to not do something.
There are so many mentors, coaches, self help books, family and friends who are all telling you to get started but only you can do it.
How about you try to figure out what’s stopping you from starting. I hope by listing mine, it might help you start. Mine are/were:
- It has to be perfect (so don’t even start because it never will be)
- Maybe no one will read it
- I’m busy (not doing much at all but it sounds good)
In the end, it just came down to I was scared. It’s always easier to not do anything, and just stay scared rather then look at your fears and beat them up!
I’m writing, and it’s not as scary as I thought it would be. It doesn’t have to be perfect, some people ARE reading this and even if they aren’t, I enjoy writing. I’m not that busy that I can’t write (even when I really am)
I have a new pleasure in my life, writing these posts so I’ll keep on doing it.
How about you? Try writing down what’s stopping you from getting started. Then have a look at the list and think about this.
There are people, like me, willing to help you. There are so many people who value you.
So what’s so hard to do, that you can’t get past it?
Let me know in the comments or write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s see if I can help you at all.
Talk to you soon.
