I wrote yesterday about fear, and how if you try but fail, then you’ve still done something that a lot of people haven’t done.
Today, I want to connect this post to yesterday’s. I want to focus on that word try. How many times has someone told you about this great idea that they have? It’s easy to caught up in their idea. To brainstorm and get excited about it. But how often does that conversation stay at the dinner table or at Starbucks?
Why is it so hard to go from an idea to getting it done? Because people don’t try. It’s sad, but true. You can’t think that that book will write itself. That the painting will paint itself. That the ministry idea will transpire by doing nothing.
Nothing happens without a first step. Just. One. Small. Step.
