How is that possible, when you are already at 100 mi/hr. speed and yet there is another car able to overtake you in the highway just about the same speed? How is that possible, when there is a successful magazine already in place, a new magazine could beat it on the same category? How is that possible, a new company is emerging successfully for the same android smart phone for which there are multiple brands already making their rocket sales? How is that possible, that a new one could beat an existing yet successful venture?
With respect to speed I guess, physicist or an engineer might answer, however for the rest, what you think the answer is? Today I read a trending news about the 19-year-old young CEO and entrepreneur of Rookie Magazine. There are several brand magazines out there which are popular and bestselling, still the young entrepreneur made it to Forbes summit this year. Isn’t it amazing? How is it possible? This got me to into thinking. Is there a game theory? Did this young CEO try out of the box thinking? Is there a secret behind this success? What is that innovative idea or a new business trick this young CEO brought in? Is that something no one knew it ever existed, that she did, it is the magazine that we all know what it is about, not that I am talking about what a magazine could do. Of course there are different types of magazines, among those types, Rookie magazine is for teens. Does that mean if we start some business or products for teens, we will be successful? No, there is something more than this.
We have heard from a lot of successful people that their success is because of hard work, focus, consistent, innovative ideas, thinking out of the box, being creative and cutting edge techniques etc. Yes, all these are factors contributing success.
We all have this inner thought, why not us? Why can’t we do the same when we have the better potential? What is that we lack?
‘First step’ is the answer. Take the first step.
- The first step to take your pen and write down your goals.
- The first step to think that we can do it.
- The first step to set the alarm for next day to wake up early
- The first step to come out of your shell and talk to people
- The first step to join the community where people share ideas in the forum
- The first step to take your ideas to your manager and ask for his opinion.
- The first step to wear the gym dress to go for work out
- The first step to learn that new language that you have been wanting to.
And so on……I know its all in your mind, all you need to do is to take the first step.
Have you observed a baby taking his/her first step?, the number of attempts it makes to keep that first step, exactly it’s the same, never fear the failure, just take the first step. When I started writing this post, I did not think I’m going to write down all these points, however I took the first step to open a new page to write and there you see, I could type more.
Believe in yourself & believe in taking the first step, believe me you are half way through your journey.
