I read through Toyin Omotoso’s mail sometime last week and about that time Uncle Zuck instructed Facebook to remind me of some of my old post?.
This got me thinking about how far I’ve come and the realities of taking the first step.
No plenty grammar and motivation, just plain old truth today.
Every first step is an awful step.
If you’re a parent, you must know this. Your child’s first step is far from what walking looks like. How be it awful, every parent is happy to high heavens watching their child take the first step.
You know why? Let me make you understand. No child will take 100 steps without taking the first. In other words, the most important step is the first.
Those who have bought my graphic course have seen my first social media graphic and they can testify to how horrible it looked but have I grown past that? Hell yeah.
Ask photographers about their first shot, an MC about his first event, cobblers about their first shoe, entrepreneurs about their first business, public speakers about their first gig…those are awful first steps but you’ll never take more if you don’t take the first.
Hell yeah, you’ld have an awful first sale
A terrible first shot
A horrible first video content
But you’ve just got to start with the first or remain where you are. Get started and get moving already.
Peace, Love and Cold Zobo.
