Some people have a constant desire to start new things while others can’t stand doing so. While some people jump too quickly to start something new, others do everything they can to avoid starting. Starting is a big step towards being successful, but starting the wrong thing can hinder your chances of becoming successful. Ultimately, there are four reasons to start something:
- You are passionate. Being passionate about something is a good reason to start. If this is a reason that you are starting, then starting will allow you to get closer to fulfilling your dreams and aspirations.
- You want to conquer your fear. One of the biggest things people fear is starting something new. You may need to do just that in order to conquer your fear. Fear only manifests when we think about ideas we have not done net. When we turn those ideas into action, the fear gets eliminated.
- You want more credibility. Starting something and then having it work will boost your credibility. If what you start does not work, that’s okay too. All you can do at that point is get up and try again. Bill Gates had to get up and try again when Traf-O-Data turned out to be a flop. He tried again and created Microsoft. Now Bill Gates is one of the richest men in the world (sometimes, he’s the richest).
- You want to do more experiments. You don’t need goggles, lab equipment, or scientific procedures to conduct an experiment. An experiment is implementing your idea, giving it a try, and seeing what happens. As you do more experiments, you will be able to identify patterns. You will be able to identify what types of methods work and which ones do not work. Conducting more experiments allows you to do better at what you do. Most bloggers start out as either decent or bad writers. Writing many blog posts over time is what allows these bloggers to get better at what they do. They get better with practice.
Starting something new takes a lot of courage, and there are many other benefits to starting as well. What are your thoughts on the list? Do you have any additional reasons to start something? Please share your thought and advice below.
