I know that there are times in your life where you feel like you have reached the climax in your thinking and planning and all you want to do is to start travelling on that journey which really excites you and scares you at the same time. That’s propbably the right time to follow your heart and JUST BEGIN, because you have thought about it a couple of times and have imagined yourself already as that person you want to become and all of those things you have jotted down in your journal are calling for you and saying that ‘we are ready to be tested’.

Although I do not fully believe in testing the waters but rather going all in with full force, with all that you have and all that you are,but sometimes it can be good to take things slowly so that you do not go over-awe and end up overwhelmed and torn apart  by something that was meant to bring you joy.

The good thing about having that goal or dream is that it just excites you and makes you feel like you can take on the whole world by yourself. It is advisable to start acting and strike while the iron is still hot so that you may accomplish most of the things that you have been planning for some time.

I have compiled a list of 5 ways you can follow in order to Just begin travelling on that journey of yours.



Well you have been planning, you have been thinking and it is now time for you to act. Remember when you wrote down your goals  in your journal ?well start by doing the first thing on the list and when you have accomplished it you will automatically be ready to follow through the whole list.


One mistake that most of us do is chanhing our plans and neglecting our initial goals. This might happen because of fear or even laziness. Do not be that person who is idle, stay focussed on what you have planned to do. Finish what you have started.


You are going to get dissapointed because not everything will happen or turn out the way you had imagined. When that happens, do not dispair, rather take it as a learning curve and try do approach it from a different angle.


These two points correlate with each other because you need to understand that  consistancy is essential and nothing can be achieved without it. The same things goes with commitment because if you are not commited to your goals then you wont be able to achieve them. Know that most people fail, not because of lack of desire but because of lack of commitment.


There is no way you can do anything without the first step being courage. Be courageous  and  follow through all those things you wrote down in your journal. If it means approaching people and big companies and setting up meetings with the big guys, then do it. It takes a great deal of courage to go against the odds and be who you want to be without the fear of failure and judgement.
