I have no idea what I’m doing.
Who cares. I don’t care if I know what I’m doing. I do it any way. I have skills and I know how to use them but when I look at everything I’m doing I realize I have no idea what I’m doing. I jump in head first. You know, “Shoot for the moon and you’ll land among the stars”. That’s me. I HAVE to aim high. If I don’t, I’ll go nowhere. Do I know how to raises a large family? No. Do I know how to make documentaries? No. Did I know how to market books to old ladies and people who needed spiritual help? No, but I did it. I stepped up. I didn’t let someone else do it.
I don’t know how to “blog”, I don’t know how to run a website. (I’ve launched a couple and they’re terrible) I don’t know how to acquire a bajillion twitter followers. I joined twitter to find out how. That’s how I live. I try stuff. Sometimes I get discouraged along the way. My wife can tell you that. But I can’t let that last forever. It’ll eat me alive if I do. I have to keep going. I want to run a marathon. People tell me I’ll injure myself. I don’t care, I want to do it. I’ll read books like Finding Ultra and Born to run and Racing Weight to find out how. Anybody can do anything if they stop listening to the loop in their head that tells them they can’t. If you’re reading this blog, you’ve heard that before on others.
If I have anything to say today, its step up.
Don’t sit back and think about how you don’t have the skills and no one will listen.
If that’s true, get skills. Get them by doing. Always be doing. Start talking about what you care about and people will eventually listen.
