Start By Doing What Is Necessary
We spend a great deal of time thinking about what we can't do and what we don't think is possible. Instead of working towards goals we have, we think about how hard it is or how it can't be done. We have failed without even starting. We give up before doing any work.
No matter what it is, to accomplish anything, we have to start. Our goals will not come easily and we won't be able to accomplish them immediately, but unless we start, we will never accomplish any of them. No matter what your goals are or how out of reach they seem, taking the first step brings them closer.
Just as you wouldn't be able to get up tomorrow and run a marathon, none of our goals are something we will accomplish overnight. You have to get up every morning and put in the work. You can't let anything stop you. You have to have passion and motivation and dedication. Nothing is impossible, if you believe you can do it.
If you want to run a marathon, but haven't ever run before, find a training regimen to follow and start running. If you want to quit anything, focus on not doing it. If you want a new job, start networking and get your resume into people's hands. If you want to eat healthier, purchase healthier food. If you want to write a novel, start writing every day. Whatever it is you want to do, start out doing what is necessary to get there. It may not seem like much, but the small amounts of work you put in to start will add up.
Don't let difficulties hold you back. Don't let doubts stop you. Don't worry what anyone says or thinks. If the people around you don't support your quest towards your goals and dreams, eliminate them from your life. Don't let the voice stop you. If you dream big, set your goals, believe in yourself and do the work, anything is possible. It just starts with doing what is necessary.
