How to start doing anything (and be awesome about it)
Have you ever feel stuck? Feeling like you’ve been staying at one one place for.. forever. It hits you hard and you start thinking about things you can do to get this feeling out. You know you can’t be stagnant for too long, it’s just not you because you’re more than this. You have so many ideas, and all the brilliant ideas. You will do this and go to that. You will learn this to start to be that. This, that, this, that.
There’s only one problem, you never do anything about it.
Ideas are nothing without execution but there’s you, feeling stuck and trying to erase the feeling with.. daydreaming! Good strategy.
So, you want to be happier, healthier, prettier, and richer. You want to be better at your current job. You want to switch your career and work in a different company. You want to have a side-hustle income or a whole new business – being an entrepreneur. You want to write a book or start a blog. You want to go to places all around the world. You want to try new things or new hobbies. You want to improve your relationship. You want to be better.
There are indeed so many things that you want to do, but you didn’t do it because..
because according to you, you don’t know how to start.
In this post, I will share 3 steps to help you start with just anything that you want to do (you name it!)
1. Know yourself
All these while, you keep complaining about your circumstances – the situations that don’t help you with starting. But do you really know what is it that you want (with all the complaining) and more importantly, why do you want it? The big why is very important. It’s the purpose that keeps you going, no matter what the circumstances are.
Listen to yourself with an open heart. Know yourself. Identify your values and tendency.
2. Pick one thing
Just pick one thing at a time to stay focused. After you achieve the level of awesomeness for your ‘one thing’, you can repeat the process with the next thing you wanna be awesome at. (I think that’s so cool )
Don’t spend too long choosing it and stop searching for the ‘passion’ because let’s be frank – the search will never end. Just pick one that feels nearest. You will notice your nearest thing aligns with your values and tendency. Your nearest thing is also the main contributor to your other goals. At this point, it doesn’t matter if you’re not the best at that thing because once you start, you will climb the ladder.
If you already know your one thing, even better. Why haven’t you start already?
3. Practice daily
Be consistent and have an accountability system. Practice every single day. Make plans and execute them. You might fail in certain ways, it’s okay. Make a new plan and execute it once more. Do it and keep doing it. You’ll be the best in no time.
Stop saying you’re fine with not getting what you want, stop making excuses. Pursue the dream. Be awesome!
Know yourself and your why, pick one thing and start hustling.
With that, there’s only one more thing I could tell you right now. Just. F-in. Start.
