- You probably don’t have “what it takes” to found a start-up.
- You probably don’t have “what it takes” to learn how to play an instrument.
- You probably don’t have “what it takes” to build a business.
- You probably don’t have “what it takes” to write a book.
- You probably don’t have “what it takes” to paint a picture.
- You probably don have “what it takes” to do any of these scary things.
So, you’ll probably vacillate, hem and haw, and eventually go work at a 9-to-5 job, consume content other people create through your mobile phone, watch some television and go to bed.
Don’t feel bad.
I didn’t “have what it takes” to do any of the things I mentioned above.
And, in many ways, I still don’t.
So, I just went out and did those hard things anyway.
The people who write, and opine, about how hard it is to do what they do (or how easy it is, let’s be honest) aren’t doing you (or me) any favors. Zig Ziglar said repeatedly over his 50 years long career (which he didn’t think he could do either, and which he started in his mid-40’s) that “There’s always room at the top. It’s getting out of the bottom that’s hard.”
