Preparation is important. However, starting is the secret to winning. Never wait to be 100% to start.
I have seen people with ambitions to publish a book, only to spend over 10 years in research. Even when they complete, they never publish the book. Always worried about what the readers will think. Always judging themselves.
There are always people having a bad day and will always take it on you. Once in a while, you will receive an email unsubscribing from your mailing list. For some folks with poor self-esteem and business focus, they become so discouraged and frustrated by the few lost sheep. In matters business, you don’t have to be much concerned. Always look at the positive side. How many people have remained? How many opened the newsletter. How many subscribed.
Why worry when ten people subscribe to your online email newsletter and only two unsubscribe. Why do you get bothered about the two to the extent of considering dropping the initiative altogether?
Want freedom of mind? Ignore the dislikes. The unsubscribes. Negative people. Focus on progress. That is where you will find success.
These are times of being forward-looking. In life, expect the dislikes. The fact is there are very few, if any, folks who graduated having obtained 100% in all subjects. It has been a journey of passing… 80% or 75%, etc… and all these are doctors, engineers, accountants, politicians, etc.
When you are 75% ready, start. People may dislike it. Or unsubscribe. But they cannot stop you from progressing unless you allow them.
