As long as you can start, you are alright.
The juice will come.

Quote attributed to:
Ernest Hemingway

Change Your Life
A Little Book Of Big Ideas

Page 174

Interesting that this quote came from Hemingway as he started any number of times and he proved that HIS juice came.

Is there something in your view that has you in its thrall?  Have you begun?  If not, what’s holding you back?
Fear of failure, defeat?

Are you going to be one of those to look back on your life with regret?
I certainly hope not.

You have to grab for what you want.  Start today.  What’s your plan?
Writing a novel?

What is it that you want to start?  Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back.  You have everything you need within yourself to implement your desires.  If someone tells you no, use that negative as fuel to light your fire.  No can be a very powerful word when someone uses it against you.

“No” fuels me.  If you say:
No!  You can’t do that.  to me.  I’ll do everything in my power to prove to you that:
Yes!  I can do it.  See?

Tell me no.  I dare you.

As long as I start nothing will prevent me from reach my desires.

Start something.  Don’t let intimidation be what prevents you.  Be like Hemingway. Start something new every day, every month, every year.  It’s the only way to see improvement.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
