You Donít Need to Know How to Do It. You Just Need to Start.

Know Step A and do it. Then Step B, and then do it.

You donít have to listen to the negative chatter inside your head.
You can choose to mute it and turn the volume up on the good stuff.

You donít have to be overwhelmed.
You just take it moment by moment and focus only on whatís in front of you.
You donít have to have the best team, the right website, or be an expert.
You have everything you need right now; you just need the courage to act.

You donít have to wait for the sun or your trainer to exercise.
You put your kicks by your bed and do it without thinking.

You donít have to wait until the blogger says ďYes.Ē
You do it with someone else and before someone else does.

You donít have to wait for investors or your boss to notice your smarts.
You recognize it first.

You donít have to feel ashamed of learning how to do it.
You know that you canít be a beginner and be an expert at the same time.

You donít have to feel guilty for spending time on what makes you happy.
You do have to worry if you never listen to the voice inside you.

You donít have to wonder if you will look ďmessy.Ē
You will. Messy is okay for some time, even if it feels like a long time.

You donít have to (and cannot) play someone elseís game.
You play yours the best you can. It is yours and yours alone.

You donít have to sacrifice all of who you are to please others.
You do have to have boundaries and know why you have them.

You donít have to wait until your parents or wife or best friend understands you.
They wonít. You have to understand yourself before you expect it from others.

You donít have to wait for someone to help you.
You have to ask for help when you need it without shame.

You donít need to wait for others to give you props before you give it to them.
You can feel grateful for othersí success because it shows you where you want to do.

You donít have to feel like confident people were ďborn with it.Ē
You do have to build your own toolbox with things that make you feel strong.

You donít have to feel like your time hasnít come or that it never will.
You do have to know deep down that your best is yet to come.
