The Trick to Success… Just Start

Are you a young person, contemplating, freaking out, wondering when you’re going to find your path?

Are you struggling to figure out what it is that you’re meant to do here on Earth?

Are you trying to make the perfect plan before you take action?

If so, then I have some advice for you.

Just start!

In the internet age, it’s very easy for us to get too concerned and worried about what the right thing to do is. There’s so much information and there are a hundred different gurus telling us to do different things.

Knowledge is now a distraction. You think you need more books, more information, more time before you can put a step forward?

No, you don’t. You just need to start and commit. Just jump right in. And don’t have too much expectation right away. Real success takes a long time to come by, and it won’t happen overnight.

With real, sustainable success, it’s important to not think about a three month period, but more like 18 month periods. It takes a lot of patience to get to a high level of success.

Look at this picture of me when I was 15 vs when I was 18. This was three years of weight lifting.

Had I have just lifted one weight, and not gone, I would have f*ck all progress.

This principle applies to all areas of life that you want to be successful. Whether that be at your job, in the gym, on your side hustle, starting a blog, starting a YouTube channel, starting a business, with dating.

It’s less about the impact on one specific event, and more about frequency of impact over a period of time.

That principle also makes success a lot more achievable, because it’s the 1% that add up again and again over a long stretch of time that make something substantial and something truly awesome.

So if you’re contemplating taking a particular action, and you feel overwhelmed – don’t worry about it. Just start and commit to yourself that you’re going to do this – no matter how badly.

After a period of time, you will suck less and less, and then eventually, you’ll be pretty good!

If you persist past that point, you’ll be excellent. If you persist past that point, you will be one of the greats in your fields.

Start small, think big. Go hard, and bring it home – brother.
