“If you want momentum, you’ll have to create it yourself, right now, by getting up and getting started.”
People who achieve incredible things, do the most important thing - they start - no matter what. Even if conditions are not good, or it’s not the “right” moment (typical excuses), they complete the first step.
In contrast, we very often wait too long for the perfect time, better opportunities, and as result we do nothing. A solution to this can be to think how quickly time is passing. We don’t have a better option, we have to start now.
Nowadays we downplay the importance of attributes like aggression, taking risks, barreling forward. We negatively associate them with aggression, violence, or masculinity, but we don’t see the positive aspects of them that move us forward.
