Start with what you have

18 replies
People of the world have big dreams but only a few of them are able to achieve it.The question is why.The reason is because they fail to use what they have and they focus on the things which they don't have.That is why you will hear people say I wish I had,I wish I had.Look at yourself right now and look at what you have then start something with it.Bill Gates started microsoft at age 19 with $200.Warren Buffet started trading the stocks with $35.What is in your hand?It is more than enough for you to start something.It could be a talent of yours,may be your voice,dance steps,beauty to become a model,e.t.c So start with what you have where you are.

    Success comes from focusing on playing the hand you have, not asking for a new one. From focusing on what you can do, not what you can't do.

    Don't set out to make a million dollars if you are new. Make $1. Something you know how to do. The million can come later.

        I agree! I have recently been struck by almost this exact same thought.

        As it's written on my white board: "You have everything you need for success already. Anything else needed will come at the appropriate time. Stop waiting for something else!"

    Well said guys! Many people have dreams, but only a few go through with their plans for success. Also many people quit after failing a few times. There is a great quote by Napoleon Hill- "One of the most common cause of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat"

      I like what's been said. When I started out, I gave up for about two weeks at a time. I did this several times. Then I found that you can train yourself to enjoy anything. Because I've come to be lit up in even more when things aren't working. It motivates me more than it working.

      I definitely attribute a lot of my perseverance to applying what I learned in Simpleology 203. I recommend it to every warrior. It's "The Simple Science of Invincibility." Well-titled. It's about creating the unbreakable mindset to never give up.

    I agree its much easier to work in a niche that you know. Its also helpful if its something that you are passionate about. It helps you through those times when the results are not instantaneous.

      Hi guys,

      I agree with all of you, every one has what is needed to be succesfull, it's just a matter of mindset.

      Another thing that is very important to me is doing something I really love. This helps me keeping motivated when I face a problem.

    I personally stuck with this a few years back. I had a very hard time making money with <$100. Not that I was really broke but I just didn't want to spend $$ if there is a way around it such as article marketing. Also had the slowest computer ever that would take ages to even load PS.

    Next thing you know I was able to build a $1,000 computer which was the best investment I made.

    So yeah if you have $0 you can make it to $1,000.

    Great posts and inspiring. To say we have all we need now to achieve our goals is to be grateful for what we have, and to like and appreciate ourselves.

    I/We can do it!

    Really great post. So many people get caught up in what they don't have that they fail to see they have everything they need to get the ball rolling.

    Great post. Its true how great people started from humble beginnings (some even poverty) with little or almost no resources at the beginning of the race. I would say most of that success came from brilliant ideas, maximising potential and powerful leverage. And wow, its an awesome inspiration to know that Bill Gates started Microsoft with $200 at 19.

    Being resourceful is the key to to become successful entrepreneur. Unless you already possess VC funding, landing millions in contracts or present an established business, being resourceful is your best choice from going with the bottom up.
