Start by doing one pushup. Start by drinking one cup of water. Start by paying toward one debt. Start by reading one page. Start by making one sale. Start by deleting one old contact. Start by walking one lap. Start by attending one event. Start by writing one paragraph. Start today. Repeat tomorrow.
You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.
Martin Luther King Jr.
You either start now, or it is not going to happen for you, and you are going to wake up at seventy years old (or eighty, if you are already seventy) filled with sorrow that you let your dream, your passion, gift, fall by the wayside. You start now, as is. ‘As is’ is the portal to creation, to new life.

What’s the tiniest step you can take? Do that first.
You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
A year from now you’ll wish you had started today.
The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react.
George Bernard Shaw
Do not wait; the time will never be just right. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
Every master was once a beginner. Every pro was once an amateur.
