Heroes became heroes flaws and all. You don't have to be perfect to fulfill your dream.

Take the first action

When you attempt something ambitious and make a mistake, you can fix that mistake. But if you never make the attempt, you can’t go back and reclaim the wasted opportunity.

Act, create, speak, build, write, sing, dance, explore, even if you do it badly at first. You’ll get better and better as you go along.

Be willing to be a fool and you’ll be able to be a genius. The greatest achievements are those that have never been done before.

What have you never done before? What purpose have you avoided fulfilling because you didn’t know how or where to start?

The place to start is precisely where you are. The way to start is to do whatever you’re able to do, without any further delay.

Write the first draft, and then you’ll have something to edit. Take the first action, and suddenly you’ll be on the path to achievement.

— Ralph Marston
