YOU JUST HAVE TO START

You can start at anytime if you

want to be successful or make changes.

But you have to start.

You won’t accomplish anything

if you wait for all the possible

objections to be overcome.

Don’t wait for the perfect time.

Doing something new, is what people fear most.

Don’t wait for things to change.

For things to change, you have to change.


Don’t wait until you have more time,

until you are less tired, until you get the promotion,

until you settle down, until, until, until.

Don’t wait for a major event in your

life to occur before you begin.

Begin where you are.

When you take the first step,

the second one gets easier.

The only way to start down

the road to success is to start.
