You can start late, and be scared, and still succeed!
But - you’ve got to start.
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start, to be great!" ~ Zig Ziglar
If you think you’re too late, you’re right (because you won’t start).
If you think it’s too scary, you’re right (because it scares you enough to keep you from starting).
Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he created the light bulb.
Harland Sanders, at age 65 and facing the sudden loss of his and wife Claudia’s business (the new Interstate ran right over and past the restaurant, stopping customer access to it), began going restaurant to restaurant to see if they needed a great fried chicken cook. After many “no’s”, he started offering to sell his recipe for his fantastic fried chicken. It is reported that he heard 1009 “no's" before he heard his first "yes". He is now known as Colonel Sanders, and the rest is history.
Start. It’s never too late.
