Mistakes are inevitable. Every expert started off as a beginner. Even if one is born with natural ability and skills that those skills still must be cultivated and refined. The best speakers in the world still rehearse and refine their presentation, artist create and learn how to improve their artistic expressions, musicians constantly practice scales and rehearse songs. No matter what your current or desire field is it takes a lot of time, effort, and inevitably failure.
Every single time you fail it is okay. The fail helps you to learn what to do better next time. Learning from your mistake is the key. So many times people never start because they don’t want to fail. I say start failing now to get closer to the success you desire. You want to be a hand letterer? Start now! Your work will probably look horrible. And by horrible I mean not what you would want. That’s normal! Have a product or service? Start producing or offering it! Map it out and do it. It won’t be perfect but it can be perfected.
It is said that it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice or focus to become an expert in any field. For you it may take more, it may take less but the point is you have to do it.
What have you been putting off? Why? Often when while business coaching clients the most difficult part is convincing them to start. Embrace the journey.
There is no such thing as an overnight sensation. So fail today. Apply what you learned tomorrow. And be a success after that. You got this.
