La Importancia del Primer Paso || [ESP/ENG]
In my short and medium life experience, being a common citizen, but that has managed to set out, work and achieve the goals that I have set, some outstanding, I have realized different characteristics of achieving "success" a phrase often repeated in these times saturated motivational speakers, only this time I write from the actual facts of my experiences, I could detail each task accomplished throughout this post, but it may take more time and it is better to write the details, I hope to make other publications about it, I found out of curiosity a community called Be Entrepreneur called me much attention, as I have a lot of knowledge to share, this will be my first publication, with a super important topic for entrepreneurs or future entrepreneurs, also perhaps for anyone who wants to start an activity, project or work, which is The Importance of the First Step, then:
When we think of wanting to have a business, do some event, activity, or create an economic system, which generates enough economic support for a certain time and also generate an impact on society, we say, that business is a good idea, in this job opportunity can be very profitable, compete in this area will bring me many benefits, all at some point we have thought about it, there is a large percentage of people who had a passion to do "something" but never ever, could not even start a take the first step.
The origin of the inactivity of not being able to move forward in what we want to do for ourselves or our environment, is the fear, the risk of failure and loss, whether money, time or reputation, that many people are sure that before starting to undertake they will fail, that is the problem, because the fact of starting with a desire and not being able to achieve the desired results momentarily is a failure, on the contrary, with the defeat you can check that something is not right in the plan, i.e. you get additional information that helps to improve the idea, you get experience along the way, additional gives more character to entrepreneurs.
The mistake is not to take the first step, is that the very word Entrepreneur that derives from the French word entrepreneu, the one who starts and takes risk, the same word teaches it, it is necessary to start, but you only start taking the first step, no matter if after starting, things do not go very well, it is normal, there are always adversities, adverse circumstances and crises, the resounding defeat is when you never take the courage to start or start again, or learn from mistakes, never to try again, whatever it is.
As my goal is to motivate to take that step that is so lacking, try to simplify this so important act, the phrase we go step by step, little by little, gives us to understand that the progress in a construction of an idea, is a symbolic way to go to the action, does not refer to the fact of walking with the legs to take steps, should not necessarily be forced, overwhelming, radical, nor outlandish, rather, I persist in that the important thing is to start with the minimum, with a not so relevant effort, it should not even be planned, it can even be an indirect action to the project we want to carry out.
I will mention some practical examples, to visualize in my mind how to take that step to action, when I started to create a family business to produce artisan sauce with a family recipe, I thought it was my difficult, where I could sell this product without any proper packaging, I had a limitation that did not let me move forward, time passed and I did nothing about it, but I had an idea that I was very sad to do, because a neighbor a little far from my house, kept glass jars in her yard, I was passing by and saw them, I did not have the courage to ask her what she was going to do with those jars abandoned there, maybe she wanted to vote or give them away, But when I understood that if I want to make a change to achieve my goals it is necessary to take the first step, I went to her house with a lot of education besides knowing how to express, I told her my idea, what I wanted to do with the glass containers I had there, if she could sell them or give them to me, my neighbor an old lady with a stubborn character, told me no, she asked me what I was going to do with those jars, I told her about my undertaking, then we made a deal that when I finished producing a certain amount I would give her a token of my appreciation, that's how I got the containers she needed to start the business, but I think if I never went to ask her about those francs maybe I would have never started, that's the importance of taking the first step.
To start with an idea of great impact, it can be a simple step, to look for information, to buy a small tool for some process, it can be to look for old sheets of paper and pencils to write or draw, to take the first step, not necessarily to invest large amounts of money, I dare to confirm that maybe cleaning the room, picking up some debris to the trash is a first step, the important thing is to take it.
As for example I consider that for me, writing this first post in this community that has a huge potential, is my first step, everything has a beginning for a great adventure to do and write in life, the first step is the spark that ignites the engine of any desire to realize, take the step is to have the free initiative to address new horizons on the road, think and react to ideas is the first step to everything, then what can you lose, no matter in what field you develop, it is always necessary to start even if I know with a small step.
