Why You Need to Make ‘Starting’ a Mindset

Why you need to make 'starting' a mindset

这篇文章是基于episode 88of the ProBlogger podcast.

你是博客旅程的下落吗?

You may be the very beginning of your journey, and getting ready to create your first blog post. You might be a little further along, and thinking of taking the next step – a second blog perhaps, or maybe a podcast. You might be thinking of launching a course to teach others what you know, or perhaps putting all that knowledge in an eBook and selling it.

Whatever stage you’re at, there’s one thing you can do that will take you further on your journey as an entrepreneur than anything else.

Start.

A blogger’s journey

2002年11月,我收到了一个带有主题行的朋友的电子邮件“签出这个博客”。当时我甚至不知道什么是'博客'是什么,它很容易删除他的电子邮件并继续前进。但好奇心得到了更好的,我打开它找到相同的四个词,然后是网站的链接 -tallskinnykiwi.com.

I clicked the link.

两个小时后,我完全迷上了。不仅在博客上(由一个名叫安德鲁琼斯的人写),而且还在整个概念'博客'。

So much so that on that same day I started a blog of my own.

I’d love to say that I took to blogging like the proverbial duck to water, but I’d be lying. I wasn’t a great writer. I’d never designed or set up a website before, I didn’t know how to code. I had no money for a domain or hosting. I didn’t know any other bloggers. (I’d only just leaned what a blogger was.) I was worried about what people would think of my ideas. I didn’t have a niche, or any idea what I would write about.

But I started it anyway. And it completely changed my life.

几年后,我成为一名全职博主。之后我很快就提供了一份书籍交易。我要在世界各地的会议上发言。我每月都有数百万人读我的话。

And all because I started a blog.

The first of many starts

But while that’s when by life as a blogger started, I’ve had plenty of other ‘starts’ over the years. I started writing a book. I started using different social networks, I started business partnerships. I started writing eBooks. I started creating courses. I started a job board. I started an event for bloggers. I started a podcast.

And they all contributed to where I am today.

Of course, not everything I started was a success. Some things I started never got off the ground, and others fizzled out soon after launch. But it’s amazing how many of my ‘starts’ have created wonderful opportunities for me.

A bright idea in the darkness

其中一个'开始'实际上早上两点左右开始。当一个想法突然进入我的脑袋时,我正在考虑我可以为职业推荐。yabo娱乐我可以在每一天写一个月的一系列帖子,每天都会给我的读者一个博客提示和他们可以用自己的博客来加强这个概念的活动。

我最终起床了,写一篇帖子宣布新的一系列帖子,我会推出31天,以建立一个更好的博客。

That first series of posts was so successful that it turned into a second series, and then a third. Later it became an eBook that sold more than 20,000 copies. And then I used what I’d written for the eBook to create a 31-part series of podcasts, which are still the most popular episodes I’ve ever recorded.

And that eBook sparked ideas for other eBooks. I’ve now created more than 30 of them, and they’ve sold hundreds of thousands of copies over the years.

而且,因为我开始这一系列博客帖子。

一堂课

So why am I telling you all this? Because I want you to start paying attention to the ideas that you can’t get out of your head. Don’t just get excited by those ideas. Do something with them.

In other words, start.

And don’t discount the ideas you getafteryou’ve started. That first series of blog posts could have been the last. But instead I kept evolving the idea, and it created opportunities for me that I never would have thought possible in that moment at two in the morning.

I’d like to wrap up this post with a tweet I put out a while back that still resonates with me.

如果你已经考虑了做某事,但没有进一步拍摄,开始。当这些想法弹出到你的脑海里时,继续制作。

Starting is the most important thing you’ll ever do as an entrepreneur. And next week I’ll be talking about thesecondmost important thing you’ll ever do as an entrepreneur. But in the meantime, choose something you’ve been thinking of starting and actually make a start.

And then let us know what it is in the comments.
