The discussion of a Journey is what makes the distance far. The moment you start, it’s only a few miles to your destination — Nupe people.
The secret to every journey is something in particular, but before I dive into the mystery, let me point out that everything has ingredients. In this article, I will discuss the five things to building yourself and the secret ingredient you need.
Here are five things to help you start the journey of building yourself.
Accept the Fear.
Starting anything new comes with fear and uncertainty. The same applies to building yourself. It’s scary. No doubt about that.
Everybody who is anybody, has faced challenges and self-doubts as they grew into becoming who they are today.
It is okay to be scared, confused, and doubtful. Accepting these facts will prepare you confidently to move into the new phase of yourself.
Define a Goal
The start can be a lot. You should be able to look at where you are and where you want to be.
There is a reason you want to embark on this journey, financial stability, family value, self-confidence, or a new career goal. Few questions to ask
- Where are you right now?
- Where do you want to be?
- What do you need to do to get there?
Set attainable goals using the answers you get from these questions. Your goals should be achievable and trimmed down to the smallest detail.
Define a plan and celebrate the small wins
Now that we have defined the goal, the next thing is to create a plan and stick to it. Define a roadmap that will guide you and help track your progress as you go.
Break down your plans into small tasks with attainable achievements and incentives to reward yourself for every win.
Learn as you go
Mistakes will happen, setbacks will come, and plans can change. The goal is to learn from these. Understand what happened and what you could have done better.
These will guide you and keep you focused on the goal.
The secret ingredient, this is it! JUST START. Don’t prepare for tomorrow, and don’t wait for some element to be in place. Just start.
Start working on the business idea, start talking to your friends. Start that journey today.
One thing I’d love for you to take away from this article is that the start of everything is the key to its success. Once you start, the rest will come into place.
