The fear of starting keeps a lot of people from getting started in the first place. If that’s you, you are in the right place. It is important to get started anyway, even if you are terrified of having to learn something new and, of course, are afraid to fail.
Don’t be afraid to suck. This fear keeps people from starting. But be real, of course you are not going to be perfect at something new when you are doing it for the first time. Think about kids—they are always terrible at things they are learning. And that’s okay! No one is going to hate you because you were bad at something at the beginning of learning something new. For the first 20-25 years of your life you learn consistently, but then we stop putting ourselves in these learning situations. Keep putting yourself in those learning situations, be bad at it for a little bit, be uncomfortable, and give yourself the opportunity to get better.
Don’t wait to be the best to start. No one was the best when they very first started, so make sure to not compare yourself to where someone is at later on in their journey. Don’t let your fear of not being perfect keep you from going. It’s okay to be “good enough” and recognize that you don’t have to be perfect all of the time.
Don’t forget to celebrate all of your wins. Be proud that you started, kept going, sucked...don’t wait until you’ve accomplished something to celebrate. You start to compare, lose momentum, and give up if you wait too long to celebrate something. Zoom in to see that you have made progress in whatever you are working on and celebrate that progress!
