Starting something–especially starting something new–takes courage. It’s not easy to venture into the unknown or do something that you don’t know what will be the outcome. This quote, by Jessica N.S. Yourko, reminds us that starting something can be a courageous act. But it’s only the first step. Once we do start that thing, it’s easy to lose momentum and motivation.
There’re so many great work out there that will never see the light of day because they were started and not completed. Finishing takes grit and perseverance.
So next time you start something, first be proud of the courage it took, but also begin to mentally prepare yourself to take it across the finish line.
