Just Start ft Chibundu Onuzo

Just Start! That is the only message I have for you today, if you keep deliberating and over thinking, then absolutely nothing will change. You don't want to be the person that talks the talk but is never brave enough to walk the walk.

Be DETERMINED: Once you start you'll need to keep pushing because nothing at all happens over night.

Be FOCUSED: Focus on the overall vision. What can you see that no one else can see!

BE RESILIENT: There will be set backs, but that's great! Set backs give you more to accomplish and make you try even harder.

Challenge yourself: After all this isn't about doing it for any one else except you! You are the one that has to look back at your life and ask yourself what you actually managed to get done with it.

You never know who you will be inspiring, when you decide to get rid of fear and take the plunge. I can guarantee that someone will come up to you one day and say 'because of you, I never gave up'. There's a particular quote I love that say's if you never make a start then you'll never know how great you could become - that is enough to make me take a leap of faith.

Check out a few words below from international author Chibundu Onuzo who recently released her second book - Welcome To Lagos.

Words from Chibundu: People often ask me what they need to write a book? They ask if they need a special qualification, or a special degree or a special connection to a famous writer who will open the doors of the publishing industry to them. I always reply, what you need to do is start. Put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and start. You don't need anybody's permission. To write a book, you need to write.

You can find Chibundu's books on Amazon, Waterstones and many other retailers. Just type Chibundu Onuzo and grab a copy of her book!

It doesn't matter that it's March, what matters most is that you make a start!
