This seems so obvious.
I get it. It seems like the most obvious thing in the world: you can’t start any younger. You can only start where you are.
But do you believe it?
Have you given yourself permission to start where you are, right now? (Undisciplined or too tightly wound, overweight or too shy, uncaring or unmotivated or lazy or hurt or afraid…you, now. Have you said This is where I start from….?)
Flow encourages you to start now.
Start being you -- imperfectly you.
It would be nice to start smarter, younger, better connected, more experienced, more beautiful or after you have lost weight, but you can’t. You can only start now.
Now is exactly where all of us are. Think about it: every billionaire only has now. Like you. Every famous celebrity just has now. Every award-winner, every scholarship winner, anyone who has what you are trying to achieve, or what you want, or what you’re too afraid to even say that you want…all those people only have now.
Here is the lesson of flow: you are doing okay right now. You are here, right now. You can start, right now. You can’t start any younger. But there is good news: you don’t have to effort your way forward or throw yourself up stream. All you need to do is say I begin now. Where I am. This is where I start.
