Getting to X

Jon Acuff wrote a book called Start. The only way he was able to get it published was to start writing.

Bill Gates built Microsoft and served as its CEO for years. The only way he was able to help lead the world into a digital age was by starting to learn computer code and circuitry.

You’ve got a dream — to lead NASA, to marry the person of your dreams, to add a silhouette to the New York City skyline.

The only way to achieve that dream is to stop so that you can start.

Stop blaming your failures on others. Stop listing why you’ll never be _______ enough. Stop negotiating with your reptile brain. Stop reasoning your way out.

Start doing. Start learning. Start failing.

You’ll never get to X if all you do is complain about being at M.
