Just Start

I can't tell you how many times in my life that I've said these two magical words to myself.


I remember when I started my first business and I was unsure of what to do. I would say, "Allison, just start." Then as I gained momentum and I wanted to grow more I would say, "Just start...again."

I call these two magical words because I really think that they can transform how you perceive what you want to do, be, or have in your life.

Most of us are scared or fearful of change. I used to have the mantra, "I HATE change."

Then a change would come into my life, good or bad and I'd feel stressed out, angry, and afraid.

Why is that? It's because that is what I said I wanted...right? I told myself to hate change.

Now I've changed that perception because I know that as long as I am alive I will be growing and changing. As soon as I'm dead...the change ends. HA!

So, in order to be truly alive, you need to embrace change and one easy way to do this is to JUST START.

I can't even tell you how many people come up to me with amazing ideas, goals, and things they want to accomplish. Then in a few months, I see that same person again and I ask them how that 'thing' is going. Guess what typically happens? They tell me they have not started!

I'm not trying to make anyone uncomfortable, but if you have something that you want to do...JUST START. Take a step because doing anything is better than nothing.

Those great ideas and inspiration don't come to you by accident. They come to you because you are the exact right person to take action on them and get it done.

My lesson for today is to just start.

I believe in you.

Take a step.... then after you do, let me know about it and I'll cheer you on!
