If you aspire to create a meaningful legacy in your life, you can’t make it come true unless you start. You can’t dream to live the kind of lifestyle you want to be in if you don’t walk through the mud on rainy days. You can’t harvest the fruit if you don’t endure the scorching heat of the sun while planting. The bottom line is, you can’t proceed to the finish line without taking the first step.
Starting from scratch isn’t always the best part, but it is the most crucial part of the journey. The beginning of something may not be able to determine its outcome but it does say something about how it’s going to go. This doesn’t necessarily mean you must already have everything completely planned out before you start, but it is important to strive to set a mark on your first try.
All successful people — the personalities you idolize, the artists you dream to become one day, the people who inspire you to bet on your abilities, all started somewhere. Contrary to what most people speculate, they have gone through numerous hardships of life because they were not given the privilege to start. Finding and developing their talent was not an easy path, but they chose to grab every opportunity they can to capitalize on what they’re born to do.
