Given that this is my first post, I must admit, I’m not sure what I should start with. Its one of those moments that one has so much yet so little. So here I am, going ahead and speaking my mind:) And I guess that’s more or less how life works.
Sometimes we don’t know how to start but once we start, we get a hold of the flow and end up making progress. Its dangerous to contemplate for too long…to stand at the shore thinking of whether you should dive in or not. A wise man once posited, “Without commitment you will never start, without consistency you will never finish.” Sometimes all you need is that commitment to start, and the rest will be put in place in the long run. Its no use sitting in a fully fueled vehicle thinking of your destination without making the step of turning on the engine and actually driving.
Have you been planning to start something for too long? Do you think that you are long overdue? Here’s a piece of advice…Just start!
Are you afraid of whether you will make it or not? Start anyway!
Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship!
Get out of your comfort zone. For that thing that you’ve always admired from a far, stop admiring and start making steps to achieve it. It doesn’t have to be in the seemingly big things. There’s a great beauty in small things. Start a blog,make friends,read that book, enroll for that course, say goodbye to those things that have been holding you back….what’s the worst that could happen?
Yes you might fail while at it but in the midst of the fall, there’s a lesson. Get back up! If your perception is correctly placed, you’ll never come out without a benefit.

The above is just a note to self, and of course the rest of the world as we walk in this journey together. A journey that entails progress, new beginnings as well as new lessons.
You are officially invited to join in this journey of progress and results. Feel at home in this cradle of hope!
