“If you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission!” – NineFrogs
I was having a conversation with someone.
I was telling this person.
That I was going to write a book.
I’ve already started.
And this person was like:
“How are YOU going to write a book?”
“You don’t know HOW to write a book!”
To which I replied:
“Well, I might not know how to do EVERYTHING.
But, I have a good idea on how to start.
So, I’m starting there.
And I’ll learn the rest along the way.”
I’ve learned the hard way in life.
When situations like this turn up.
The one thing you need to do:
Don’t you love that about people!
So quick to tell YOU.
That YOU can’t do something!
Is dedicated to all the people out there.
Working on a dream.
That no one can see but them.
Oh, and more on the book at the end.
But yes, I already started.
Picked the name.
Did an outline.
Picked out the cover.
And I’m having someone design the cover.
And the illustrations.
I even bought the domain name.👈👈👈
When all else fails.
Google it! NineFrogs Daily “QUOTE OF THE DAY”:
That’s why God made Google.
You don’t have to.
Go around asking other people.
What you should be doing.
I see people doing that.
All the time.
Don’t do that.
It’s your path.
You need to figure out.
How to navigate the path!
Not anyone else.
And if you need it:
You don’t have to have it all figured out.
Before you start.
That’s why so many people.
Don’t even start.
Have a general idea.
Of what you want to accomplish.
With whatever you have.
With whatever you know.
With whatever resources you have.
And, people usually realize.
They have more of everything.
Than they really thought.
And then ask yourself:
How can I make it work?
It’s like the people who tell me.
They want to start a business.
That happens often.
Only they don’t have any money.
And I proceed to tell them.
Of how to start a business.
With no money.
Just start with what you have.
It’s both that simple.
And both that hard.
But the thing is.
You have to really want it.
Like, really want it.
Because if you do.
You’ll make it happen.
You’ll figure it out.
And if you don’t.
If you need help:
Do you think.
That I know how to self-publish a book on Amazon?
But, I’ll figure it out.
When I get to that part of the process.
That’s not going to stop me from starting.
And don’t let it stop you.
From starting whatever it is you want to start.
The ‘not knowing part’.👈👈👈
I have learned.
Over these past nine years.
I’ve started many things.
That I hadn’t had it all figured out.
And yet, somewhere along the process.
I figured it out.
That’s why it’s called a ‘process’.
And when all else fails:
Shock everyone around you that you did it!
They will be amazed.
You will amaze yourself that you did it.
Is this sh*t easy?
NO, it is not.
Is it worth it?
You better believe it!
I bet if you looked over your life.
You would see things.
That you had no idea.
How you were going to do it.
Yet, you did it.
Life’s like that.
We are all a lot stronger than we think.
Read that again.
Yes, we are ALL a lot stronger than we think.
So use that.
Use it to do that thing you’ve been wanting to do.
In the meantime.
How can I make it work?
Here’s one of my latest accomplishments.
That I had no idea how I was going to do it.
Or even, get through it.
It was New Year’s Eve day 2020.
I had a follow-up appointment with my surgeon.
From the surgery I had about two weeks prior.
The whole drive over.
I was like, I’m good.
I figured I would walk in, and she’d say, you’re good to go.
See you in six months.
Only she didn’t.
She said, “I’m sorry to tell you this, but, you have to have radiation treatment.”
As a precaution.
20 rounds of it.
I was absolutely devastated.
I mean, radiation treatment!
I could barely breathe when the doctor told me.
How was this going to work?
How would I get through this?
Will it hurt?
My mind was a flutter with questions.
Ok. so, long story short.
I had the treatment.
I only had to have 16 instead of 20 treatments.
And I have to say.
I was a f’ing warrior.👈👈👈
I did it with a great attitude.
And a smile on my face.
Because, I had decided.
If this is what I have to do.
I’m going to make it work for me!
And I did.
And before I knew it.
16 rounds of radiation treatment were over.
And I got to ring the bell!
That’s what I’m talking about.
And then you figure it out along the way.
P.S. I never had cancer, I had what they call “stage 0 cancer”.
And I share that in case you or someone you know.
Comes across that same situation.
And when it all started.
I just asked myself:
How can I make it work?
As for my book.
Titled: “How One Landscaping Bill Changed Everything”.
Is it an over-whelming project?
Will it be worth it?
Without a doubt! NineFrogs Daily “QUOTE OF THE DAY”:
