Why Starting is so Important

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”
-Joe Sabah

One of the interesting turn-of-events in going after your dream is that people find out what you’re capable-of after you do it.

They had no idea you were interested in the field, let alone that you could actually do it. Or that you were available to do it.

Many of us wait around for someone to give us a “dream job” but organizations only hire people who are actually doing the dream. They don’t know you for what they can’t see.

Think about it – if you’re a cog in some company’s machine, all people know you for is being a cog. If your dream only exists in your mind, it’s invisible to the rest of the world.

It might as well not exist at all.

This is why starting is so important. You don’t even have to succeed. Just start. Fail gloriously if needed. But the very act of starting will bring your dream to the surface.

People will know your interests. They’ll see your hard work. Suddenly, you’ll become available to them. A consideration.

And as we always say in Dream Year, the waters don’t part until the heel of your foot hits the surface.
