Wise Words: Just Get Started

by Britni Danielle

“So many fail because they don’t get started, they don’t go. They don’t overcome inertia. They don’t begin.” – W. Clement Stone

While we may all have good ideas, many things stop us from acting on them. We’re too busy with work, we’re too broke to travel, we have to finish school first, we’re waiting until Monday, we’ll change our routine on the 1st–whatever. When you really want to get moving toward your goals, starting at some arbitrary date or time does little to actually get you moving. If you really want to change your life, achieve your goals, or live life on your own terms….get started today.

What are you waiting for?

Happy Thursday!

    It’s sooo easy to just sit back and dream but what’s the point if there’s no action.

    I’m doing it!!! Started this week, was nervous and hesitant, but each day gets a little easier, I gain a little more confidence! Not easy, but nothing worth having is–I feel great!!
