Just Start: Embracing Mistakes and Failure on Your Journey

The other day, I was listening to a podcast of a successful entrepreneur, and I was blown away by how they got started and the foundation of their philosophy. Two very simple words…Just Start. I thought…That was it? Where is the rest of it? The business plan, budget, and courses of study? But think about it. What is one thing you want to do, but haven’t?

For me, starting WorkSpace District. Who do I think I am? I’m a former music educator with no business background at all. But then I remembered, I didn’t start as a musician or educator when I was a kid! I just did and started things to explore, so why not do it now? There is no age limit!

Starting something new can be daunting, but it’s okay to make mistakes and even fail along the way. In fact, we’ve done it before, and know it’s all part of the journey!

1. Just Start

Starting is the first step towards progress. Don’t wait for the perfect moment; it may never come. Take that leap of faith and try.

2. Embrace Mistakes

Mistakes are valuable lessons in disguise. Embrace them as opportunities to learn and grow. They’re the stepping stones to success, not obstacles.

3. Face Failure Courageously

Failure isn’t the end; it’s a chance to start anew. Don’t be afraid to stumble along the way. Every setback is a setup for a comeback. Face failure with courage, and it will lead you closer to your goals.

Is it going to work every time? No. Will we be positive every day? No. We are allowed to have those days. But, maybe, just maybe, simply trying a little bit each day, and accepting failure as the great teacher it is, we won’t be so afraid to start. So, what do you want to start today?
