You can do it. I know you can.
Sure, it’s scary.
And you’re not sure it’s going to work.
Can’t even really get started.
What if you’re wrong about the whole idea?
What if you make a mistake?
What if you can’t get a break?
What if you lose everything?
I know your thoughts run in that endless, negative, worried loop.
Indulge me a moment with something that may strike you as deceptively simple: Why not just create a new loop?
What if you simply shifted all your energy toward creating that break you need? You know what I mean – spend your time crafting that small little opening that’s all you really need.
What if you just focused on finding someone who will say yes?
Then find another someone who says yes.
And then one day you’ll look up and realize that it’s flowing.
And it’s everything you thought it would be.
And you’ve done it.
Wow, that’s something right there. Hold that image in your heart and mind for a minute or two – feels good, huh?
Oh, there are people who will bust your good mood. Who’ll tell you not even to try. It’s impossible.
What are you thinking? Especially “in this economy”?
Don’t let anyone tell you that in this economy, you can’t.
Because I see people doing it every day. And if they can do it, so can you.
Regardless of the worries of your mother. Or your father. Or your great-aunt Tilly who wonders what all this hubbub about the computer is really all about. Why can’t folks just work at the factory like they did when the world worked right?
Don’t take on the fears of others, regardless of how much you love them.
You are the best expert on yourself. Who else has lived in your skin all these years? Who has your bones? Your strength? Your resilience?
Who knows your story better than you?
And it’s your story to tell.
Let’s make it a success story, shall we?
You know what you want. You know what you have to do.
You can do it.
It’s fine to start small. But you’ve got to start, my friend.
And today is Day One.
