Make Your First Your Worst

I hear from a lot of people who don’t want to start things, because they’re afraid they are not good enough. They’re not “worthy” of participation.

Let me put your worry to rest. You are NOT good enough! That’s right! You’re not good enough, right now. And no one is.

You don’t have to be great to start. But you do have to start to be great.

Les Brown

Anyone you consider great has been in your shoes. The only difference is they started. And in my opinion, made the following statement an anthem.

“Make you first your worst.”

In other words, it’s ok to start off “not so great.” Just make sure every time after that is better than the last. Make sure you never fall back to, or beyond your starting point.

Get started. Stay focused. Get better.
