Opening the blinds.
When I was a kid I wanted to be a dancer and I was. Then I wanted to be a writer and yes I was. I wanted to draw and the next thing I know I was an artist. But as I grew up I can’t even draw a straight line without a scale because I know It’s not straight.
I cannot start a business because I know I lack experience and I won’t even try because I know I will fail but how do I know?
I know because I have learnt about the pros and cons, consulted too many people and researched to an extent that now I am scared to start.
Knowledge is a blessing and a curse at the same time.
It was fine until I was researching for how to’s but now that I have killed it I am stuck in the midst of should I or should I not?
“Knowledge is a blessing and a curse at the same time. And the curse can be undone if you allow it to bless you.”

Poetry Book Available At Amazon.
Usually, once the research is done one is supposed to start. But no you won’t and why is that?
You see once you come across the stories of someone else mistakes or failures you end up counting your failures. Next, you start exaggerating your weaknesses then you start imagining you don’t only lack experience but you are behind and the comparison makes it worse. And now the momentum has begun one thought leads to others and you are stuck here for months if not for years.
This is what knowledge does when you keep going back to the same book without realizing that no matter how many time you check facts are now going to change. Yes, freelancing is not easy, you won’t get the assignment on the first day. You have to keep bidding for days.
Yes, your book may take years to sell, you may not get that dream job in a couple of months but if stop applying you will never get it.
Romantic Drama Available At Amazon.
You want to build a brand but you are terrified to start. Well, you have to start. This is the only magic word that is going to change your life nothing else ever will.
Yes, COVID 19 is not going any time soon and vaccine won’t come, cases won’t decrease, life won’t come back to normal by watching the news all day long.
You have to learn the art of switching off the buttons.
Switch off your phone and stop clarifying what and hows of your life to people. Switch off the T.V and get back to work. Stop watching how-to on YouTube and start the process of trial and error.
Trial and error are what will get you out of ruts. And this is what will make knowledge a blessing otherwise it will be a curse you will never be able to undo.
Stop researching successful stories, stop looking for inspiration, forget about branding, forget about playing perfect, and most importantly stop thinking what would they say just START.
