3 Common Fears/Lies that Kept Me from Starting Sooner

Starting anything new can be scary and right away there is fear just creeping its way into the picture. Fear itself is a tricky little feeling that can cause people to stop pursuing their dreams. It’s time to kick fear to the curb where it belongs and start living the life you are meant for. Here are 3 common fears/lies that kept me from starting my business sooner:



  1. You’re too young. Age is just a number, it doesn’t make someone any less qualified to do something. What drives someone to do something is a dream, passion straight from your heart, and that right now more than qualifies you. Don’t wait until you’re older to do great things.


  1. You have to start at the “right” time. WRONG! If you wait for the “right” time to pursue your dream, you will never pursue them. The time you are waiting for is right now! Life tends to take us exactly where we need to go. Personal issues will happen, life happens, but don’t use that as an excuse to start today. If we are being honest, the timing will never be right - that’s why you need to start NOW!


  1. You have to know EXACTLY what you are doing. Again, false. Yes, having a plan is necessary, but don’t let the details lead you, let your passion lead you. This is YOUR dream, take it step by step, figuring it all out from the beginning will only make the success in the future so much sweeter. Don’t get overwhelmed with all the details and tasks, this is suppose to be fun. Enjoy it, from beginning.


Don’t let anyone tell you anything other than, “you can do this,” because you can! Establish your passions, let it lead you and watch your dreams become your reality. Push out any lies, fear, or discouraging people out of your way and start living the life you were meant for. I believe in you!
