Starting something new is always a challenge.  The power of inertia is amazing, keeping us from taking that small step to change something we want to change.  Just this morning, I read a post by Scott Belsky, from his Live Your Legend series, entitled “The Beginner’s Manifesto.”  I am reposting it here in case any of you are having trouble getting started on something important to you.  Enjoy! Check out Scott’s website and sign up for his email list if this catches your attention.

 

 

The Beginner’s Manifesto:

  1. The hardest step is the first one.
  2. It’s also the smallest, and often the simplest.
  3. Momentum is more powerful that we realize. But the snowball won’t roll unless you give the first push.
  4. It’s hard to start, but it’s even harder to stop once we’ve started.
  5. Start something small every day. Watch them pile up.
  6. Choosing not to start is choosing to fail.
  7. Find a reason that makes it worth it.
  8. What will happen if you don’t begin? What might you miss?
  9. Make the first step so small it’d be impossible not to take.
  10. The only thing standing between dreaming and beginning, is you.
  11. Start first. Think later.
  12. If you don’t start, nothing else matters.
  13. Most the fear comes from anticipating the start.
  14. Most the fear disappears once you begin.
  15. Don’t leave the sight of an idea without doing one thing to get it closer to reality.
  16. Say no to something that doesn’t matter, so you can start one thing that does.
  17. Possibility cannot live until you begin.
  18. If you don’t start, you can’t finish.
  19. Starting is what builds a bridge, creates a business, loses 100 pounds, writes a best-seller. Starting does it all.
  20. Starting is what changes the world. It’s the only thing that ever has.
  21. Everything starts by starting. When is now a good time?
