To celebrate the launch of my new website, I thought I might share some insights and challenges around "new beginnings".
New beginnings are full of creative potential. There is so much freedom at the beginning of any project. There is a juicy lack of certainty that can be unnerving yet exciting at the same time.
The thought of starting something new can often be more stressful than taking a physical step in the new direction. The more it sits in the mind the more likely it is to feed self doubt.
Self doubt is just one of those toxic useless feelings that have nothing to do with reality. Just because you feel in doubt doesn't mean you can't. In fact when you feel self doubt, don't do anything other than remove the doubt. The whole picture will look a lot more do able.
Take the next logical step. Nothing kills motivation like thinking big with little or no resources. Its one thing to be positive but delusional is another thing all together. Taking the next logical step makes starting an empire a simple, few steps a day project.
Start where you are! If you know where you are and know where you want to go the direction or path will start to reveal itself.
