You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
What a great quote and an inspiration to me when I think of starting on my journey towards being a Singer, Life Coach and Motivational Speaker which has been my ambition since I was about 15 / 16.
However, it’s easy to start saying I want to achieve this and not doing anything about it – I live and breathe this stuff so every morning I get up and go for a run / do weights / cycle while listening to motivational movies.
I’ve started a course in Life and Business Coaching and am now on my 3rd module. I have coached people on the class and have a number of clients that I’m coaching right now even though I’m not qualified but they see the value in what I do and how much I believe in this.
Towards my goal of singing, I have been gigging every weekend for the last number of years. I have worked hard since my first gig, where I was stopped after a short while because I hadn’t prepared enough. I was laughed at, slagged but I came back fighting. In one weekend this month I will earn €650 from gigs. A couple of years ago when I was starting I never would have dreamed I could earn this much. What’s the difference? I took action, I practiced, I prepared and I believed in what I thought was possible. I know some day I’ll play during a weekend and be on 10 times that much money, or 100 times. I believe it’s possible and I’m willing to take action toward it. Believe it’s possible and take action TODAY! Do something however small it may seem! A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, take the step and let me know how you get on!
What can you do today to take you closer to your goals?
What’s stopping you from taking action?
You’re awesome, go and show the world!
