Sometimes the best way to start is to just…start!

Starting out…it is a long road, but I have made a start.

I have been talking about writing a blog for several months now. My friends and family are sick of listening to me talking about doing it – but why have I not done it until now?

This is a question I ask myself regularly. My creative juices are flowing, my mind is free, I am coming up with great ideas. But that is actually all they are – ideas. An idea is nothing but that unless you actually do something about it. Imagine if Mark Zuckerberg decided to go to the pub instead of sitting at his computer that fateful night and creating a social media platform for his friends in Harvard. Or if Steve Jobs walked into his garage with his friend Steve Wozniak and picked up his skateboard instead of building a computer. The world would be a very different place today if these great entrepreneurs allowed their ideas to simply remain as “ideas”.

So this is me. Taking the plunge into the unknown and finally starting to “Do” instead of “Think about doing”.  I wasn’t sure where to start – or was waiting for that perfect moment – but today I decided that if I just “start”, if I just take the first step, I am one step further than I was yesterday and now the idea is real. This is a very exciting day for me, the first step on the road to achieving one of my longest standing goals.

The purpose of this blog is to bring awareness to people of how our habits and our fears influence our lives. They may propel us forward and on to greater things, or hold us back.  I’ve been inspired by many people and things in my life, I’m hoping that my journey of failures and successes will inspire and give you the confidence to take that first step forward towards achieving your goals and dreams.

  1. Best of Luck Derek, the first step in anything is the hardest & from there the world is your oyster, you will be great at this, well done in starting out 👍
    Totally agree, fear can hold you back or push you forward, let it push you to where there are no limits 😊 that inner strength is what we all need to push forward everyday, no matter what the day brings. Here’s to striking out & new adventures 📕🖋
