Get Started~Begin Today~~~Susie Austin

So many fail because

they don’t get started –

they don’t go.

They don’t overcome inertia.

They don’t begin. 

W. Clement Stone


When were the times in your life you have failed? Did you give up? Did you not even get started? A few good thought questions to start the day today.  According to Wikipedia; inertia is the resistance an object has to change its state of motion. We have a comfort zone in which we live and in order to change we have to be able to step out of this comfort zone to move forward. This can be a frightening thing to do. We talk of fear of failure, success, and fear of the unknown. The trick is how to move through this to begin to realize dreams and goals are within your reach.

 Someone asked me recently if it was too late to start a dream. Absolutely not is my answer! I don’t think it will ever be too late to begin something new. Part of the fabric of our existence is change; however it seems just as difficult in any new situation. We all know change is inevitable but we resist just the same.

 My challenge for you today is this; accept change as what it is. Meaning we will have changes every day and it is not something not to be feared, but too embraced. This may give you the incentive to move forward, to begin, to get started!

 How many people including you have failed because of lack of trying? I tell people often and I am sure you have heard it many times. If you fail it’s alright because at least you tried. How would you feel or for many of us how do we feel knowing we never tried in the first place. It’s easy to say this looking back, now a bigger challenge is to look forward and not say what if anymore.

 Begin today to overcome the inertia or resistance to accomplish something new or to even think about what something new and different may look like. Many have been stuck on the road of never change for a very long time and it may be quite difficult to try a side street for a little detour. If you do you might find a great adventure waiting for you.

Today I encourage you to not worry about failure, get started, overcome the resistance to not try and you will find this alone will motivate you. This motivation and excitement will help you move forward and gain the momentum you need to accomplish what you set out to do. Its new day make it the best!
