I am reading the book Start by Jon Acuff. He is by far, one of the funniest writers and speakers I’ve encountered.
I’m only on Chapter 2, but it is so good, I wanted to share.
“Fear tends to argue both sides of the coin, leaving you absolutely no room to stand. Here are two of the complete opposite things it will tell you: “Don’t chase your dream at all.” And, “If you chase your dream, you have to do it all at once.”
Do you see the absurdity of that? “Don’t do it! Don’t do it! Don’t do it!” fear screams. Then, when you ignore those cries, fear changes its tactic and screams, “Do it all at once! Do it all at once!” Both of these statements are lies.
As you stand with one foot still on the road to average and one foot on the road to aweomse, you’ve got to kill those concerns. Fortunately, there’s a trick that will take care of them both.
What is your dream? Why not punch fear in the face and just start?!
