You have to get started on what do you want to work on, what do you want. Let's say you want to start a blog. Let's say you want to start your own business. Let's say you want to start a side hustle. Let's say you want to start. Maybe you're not ready to start flipping houses all the way, but you're ready to start, like freshening them up and then rinsing them out. You have to get started so let's just talk about what that means. What are you good at? Don't be crazy with this and you may have to get some help with this part because sometimes, we don't know all the way what we're good at because we're already that's just what we do, that's just who we are, that's our own selves but your friends, they know what you're good at. Your cousins, like people you hang around, the coworkers that you really like, they know what you're good at. I asked some of my folks like what I'm good at, and it's pretty impressive. Ask people, ask them what do they think is your superpower. What do they think that you're good at? My sister actually said that I was like the best one. I mean, because there are a lot of there are some good ones. But she said that I asked really good questions and I was like, “Oh, man, I like you, man.”
Figure out. Let people help you decide what you're good at. Sometimes, what you're good at may not be what you like to do. You may be amazing at all things cyber. You may love it like, when you go to work, your employers love you. When you go to meetings, people love you there. You're very strategic. It's amazing but just because you're good at it, that may not necessarily be what you like to do but that's okay. We're just gathering information. We're gathering data because why? We're going to make some good decisions. So now, we're trying to decide what do you like to do. Add up all of the things you do at work, all the things you do at home. What do you like to do? Do you like tinkering? Do you like building things? Do you like being the handyman? Do you like doing numbers? Do you like being accountant stuff, helping people with their books? Do you like asking people questions? Do you like facilitating people's decisions and their growth, helping people find clarity? Are you a natural teacher? Are you a natural coach? Just what do you like to do? Do you like dealing with people? Do you like kids? Figure out what you like to do, where you naturally notice that you're spending time in this space doing these things and then even if it's like, well, I would like watching TV. Well, when you watch TV, like, what are you doing? Are you pulling out the storylines? Are you critiquing it saying, “Oh, I would have written it like this or I would have added a part in like this or I would have ended it like this.” I would let this drag out a little more, just really take time to notice what you're doing, what you enjoy, what is bringing you joy like, oh gosh, I really like doing that.
And then the last thing is, are those things going to bring you money? Are you trying to get money? Is that a part of what you're trying to do? Are you wanting to start a blog just to get your ideas out? What is the purpose of starting this new thing? Do you want to make a little extra money? Are you starting something to live a legacy? Are you starting something to get healthy? Is your start of something…I want to walk more. I want to do resistance training more. I want to start that push up challenge but I don't want it to just be a challenge. I want it to be a part of my life. So why are you starting? What is the end goal? What are you trying to accomplish? You want to start saving money because you want to be able to have more vacations. You want to start saving money because you want to invest more. You want to start investing, but you don't know what you're doing. What is the reason? What are you trying to start and why are you trying to start it? What is the end goal? If you're looking to start something just because other people are starting things? Or are you seeing that your friend started a side hustle. She started baking cookies and now, she's selling cookies at work and you realize that she's making $700 cleared, from those cookies. You don't know how to bake cookies, but you like the idea of bringing home an additional $700 a month. So figure out what your why is. Why are you starting? What do you want the angle to be? Is it because you want to be able to supplement, especially at a time like this. There's all kinds of world events going on right now, but do you not depend on your job? Do you already not have a job or you just want to start something that's just for you? What is the reason? What is the end goal. But those are some of the things that you should consider. What are you good at? What's your superpower? Ask your friends, ask your family, they'll help you. What are you good at? And just because you're good at it may not be you may not like it, but that's not the point right now and then the second thing is, what do you like to do? And then the last thing is, why are you starting? What's the end goal? What are you trying to accomplish at the end?
Take some time with this. Don't rush through this because it's easy to start sometimes. Give yourself some grace and allow yourself to figure this out, because there really is no reason to start if you don't really have a good reason of what your finish will be. So take some time with that.
