When I published my first blog post in 2013 I was a complete nobody.
No one had ever heard my name before.
And before I hit that publish button for the first time, all I really was, was someone who constantly got Ds, Es and the occasional Fs on his essays in high school.
I was far away from being an expert.
Or a good writer.
I didn't have any qualifications whatsoever.
And the only people who saw my first dozens or so blog posts were my friends on Facebook.
I posted all of my updates inside of Facebook.
Back then I didn't even know how to create my own blog.
Now fast forward 700+ blog posts, millions of people have read some of my stuff online.
Look. I get it.
It's easy to think that everybody you're following or admiring started the way they are today.
It's easy to forget that everybody who's now on top also started from the bottom.
We all have to work our way to the top.
We all start from the bottom.
There's no other way.
Here's the truth...
We all suck when we start.
It's all a process.
It's a process that requires constant work.
And if you're not willing to put in the work, nothing is ever going to change.
And I know what I'm talking about.
I've seen some of my essays I wrote in high school just a few years ago.
And they were just horrible.
I deserved every single D, E or F I ever got.
Let me tell you this...
The only way to quality is quantity.
No matter what it is that you're trying to do.
Or trying to achieve.
If you're saying you're not good enough, that's an excuse.
If you're saying you're not talented, that's an excuse.
It's all just excuses for not trying hard enough.
If you're saying to yourself that you won't make it, you won't make it.
Because you won't be putting in the work.
Again, the more you put out there, the more often you do your thing, the better you'll get.
It's that simple.
But it takes time.
A lot of time
So you might as well get started today.
And get better at it while no one watches...
