Be good enough

Talk to otherwise successful people about their unrealised ambitions and one phrase often comes up: ‘I am not sure I am good enough’.

When you dig into this uncertainty, they are the only ones imposing this doubt. All sorts of information suggests they are in fact ready to start. Whether because of a fixed mindset or some other fear, these talented people resist testing their capabilities or accepting the voice of their chorus of supporters. I recognise this fear because I’ve battled it myself. However, I’ve found only one antidote. Start.

Start. You are good enough. Good enough to try and to learn. Good enough to start does not require mastery. You can’t get mastery unless you start.

Be good enough. Start doing today.
