Why You Should Just GIVE IT A GO!
So many people always say to me, “Bree you are so amazing to be doing blah blah. I wish I had the confidence to blah blah blah”. Statements like this make me sad. Sad, because to me, it’s better to have tried and failed that to never have tried at all.
My perspective on life is to one day be on my deathbed looking back on my life with admiration that I gave it my all and that I have no regrets. I think the saddest regret anyone can have in life is that they didn’t try hard enough at something. I am not saying don’t give up. Sometimes we have to give up on things, but don’t give up until you have honestly tried everything. This goes for business, relationships and your dreams.
When I started PakMag I had no experience in print. I had never studied anything to do with journalism. I hadn’t even published an article before. I also had never worked in advertising and sales and to top it off, I didn’t even have kids. I had an idea, and six weeks later the first magazine was printed. It was pretty crappy, I will be honest, but it was a start. Had I over-thought it and had I really done my research, I probably would have thought to myself, “Who am I to start something like this?”
I probably wouldn’t have done it. And that would be really sad.
I often wonder how many people have amazing ideas and don’t act on them. Are you one of them!?
Stop putting off that marketing idea.
Stop putting off that new product idea.
Stop putting off that business idea.
Whether it is something small or something world or life changing- Give It A Go!
What is the worst thing that could happen? You Fail? Fail really stands for First Attempt In Learning. Failing has the best lessons and, in my opinion, trying and failing is way better than failing to try.
