I'm no longer a spring chicken. I would say that by most standards, I'm somewhat past the middle. But this doesn't mean I'm nearing the end. Far from it. Actually, I feel like I'm at the beginning but with more experience. I'm talking about my blog. This blog. I'm at my starting point.
It all started around twelve or maybe even fifteen years ago. I got hooked. Not on drugs or anything like that, but on the idea of the internet and all the possibilities it holds.
Your starting point
Maybe you are just starting. Or maybe like me, you are somewhere past the middle. Regardless of where you are or where people tell you you are, I will tell you that you are at the precise point you are suppose to be. Start from there.
Sometimes you have to start over to get to that point. But once you realize that you still have what it takes to actually start, you will be on your way to awesome.
Let me warn you. Actually, let me tell you the good news. You are already awesome. You just have to show the world, or at least your part of it, that you have arrived.
Don't worry about your starting point. Beginning, middle, left or right, it's your starting point and from there, have fun. You can lay out your map to get you to your next starting point.
Life is full of obstacles, but it is also full of starting points. You're there now so gather up the things you know, and chart your course. There's lots more ahead. It's just waiting on you to get started.
I've started and you can too.
Even though it's been more than a decade, I really feel I am just getting started. I can feel that I am now at the beginning. There may still be a long way to go, (actually I know there is) but at least I can say I know where things are headed.
You can get started too. There's no need to wait the years that I have, but if it takes that long, so be it. As long as you are willing to make the commitment, lay out a plan to know your path, your starting point will be clear. Even better, the place you want to be becomes more visible.
No more excuses. Get started.
