I was notorious for being a gunna girl. Everyone was probably tired of hearing about what I as 'gunna' do next!
So, how does one actually get started instead of just kicking around ideas?
Here's 5 steps to help you kick start.
1. Get Clear
The best thing I found was to get clear on one thing. I know there might be many things you have ideas for, but choose just one (and do that well and then you can move onto the next best idea).
In conversation with many people, the concern is that we will choose the 'wrong' thing to focus on. "What if this is not what I'm supposed to do? What if I'm here to do something else?"
The other concern is that we will fail at it. I have a believe that we are actually more afraid of success than we are failure. (But that's a conversation for another time).
You will eventually find your groove. But you must start. So, start with the most passionate idea. The one that gets you most excited. Or the one you seem to think about the most. The one you keep coming back to.
2. Get really clear
Once you choose one idea, start to articulate it. Finite the aspects of the idea to ensure you can bring it into fruition. No one can bring a vague product to market. No one can start a coaching business if they aren't sure what kind of coach they are going to be.
3. Discuss it with someone you trust
Find someone who is NOT a Debbie Downer and instead who is about what's possible. I suggest to find a visionary - someone who can see the future of it.
4. Just start
You won't know how it's going to play out. You can't possibly. That's the risk. But you must begin. All successful people, companies, products, services etc had a beginning. Most of the time, that beginning was a humble one. Most do not have an overnight success.
Once you have an idea of what it could look like, start to share it with people. Take a stake in the ground and let people know what you are doing. People want to be a part of something great. You will soon attract people who want to support you!
5. It's a morphing process
As you climb the staircase step by step you will find that your idea will continually morph. Know that if you are committed, you will stay the course and eventually you will create something you are worthy of.
What ideas do you have that could spark some support from someone else? (Share it in the comments box).
