Welcome back to my blog 1Beginner! Thank you for tuning in for the daily Post. #Inspiration.
Why This Post-
Recently while I was talking in a group over something & I referred about my blog. A guy Asked my Why the Name 1Beginner? Its sounds different! www.1beginner.com sounds bit weird.Why Did you choose this name? I smiled, I was not at angry because I was expecting that question. In-fact I was happy that someone asked that question because I did take few months before getting it Zero. The 1Beginner! & Only handful few have asked why 1Beginner? Rest just accepted it. I love the people who ask questions. Because it shows they are interested in knowing your work, they want to know more, they want some ideas from you & that’s not bad. I would love to answer that question. So, I decided to answer the question which must have blinked in your mind. Since, I do not have a new image designed for this post, so instead of procrastinating to share, I am using my image on top.
Please note this is reworked version of my old article which I shared when I started this blog.
Allow yourself to be a Beginner! No one starts off being an Excellent.” – Wendy Flynn.
Why the Name 1Beginner?1-B, What do you mean by 1B ?
In my view It’s a peculiar code for Inception of gigantic success and Dream Realization! before that just read the Story of Steve Jobs.
Let’s see an Example of biggest trendsetting, innovative Consumer electronics/Phone manufacturing firm, now its a billion dollar organization, which has a million dollar advertisement & marketing campaign. They pour millions & millions rupees in their invention, Research & development, their consumer products, for their employees & for customer satisfaction as well. It’s all what we see today, but go just few decades behind, in the year 1976, when it all started with one person named Steve jobs, with one spark in his mind, one spark that he transformed into a flame in his garage, He nurtured, Nourished & Persisted to make it as unstoppable movement of creativity in field of consumer electronics, which noticed & appreciated by the entire world, known as Apple!
So, Who was Steve Jobs? Wasn’t he a 1Beginner?
Yes, Mr. Steve jobs was the One Beginner for a sensation known as Apple Inc. He didn’t wait for the perfect situation, Big finances, his family support, his friends Assistance to convert his idea, dreams into reality. He did just begin with this one idea, eventually people joined & it grew day by day to a become multi-billion dollar as we see today.
Yes, I do agree with the thing that in order to go longer you have to walk in a team, still i strongly say – you have be 1Beginner to initiate your dream, if your idea or vision is worthwhile, alike & interested people would definitely join, they would not only join but they would jump in with all their hearts! Before that First you have to put your heart in it & be a 1Beginner & begin your movement, begin to shape your dream, destiny with all your actions.
You can Be 1- B!
See, if you be a 1-B & start, you may have some obstacles that you have to overcome in the beginning until it starts taking some shape. You have to have the uttermost faith & belief in yourself to move ahead, then people would join & it would definitely grow, but if you wait somebody to begin it you would definitely be in loss!
Remember it’s okay that you may need a support of somebody (team) to grow bigger, but don’t rely on somebody to begin your Dream! Never rely, you have to begin!
Remember every biggest organization in the history has started with one idea, one person, one action, one movement, yes it all started with one person, with action. The major & defining action of the person & of any business/enterprise or venture is The Beginning! The beginning is a major action taken by any individual who changed the course of his life & created history!
Let me share my own story, this is not a whole story of achievement but about the Battle of Beginning. I waited for about 5 years to write (even to initiate the writing), not even the completion, I was seeing & nourishing all excuses of mind few of them like Not talented enough, I lack vocabulary, lack new ideas, a young person like me can’t write a book, I don’t know much about publishing, how to find a publisher. It’s difficult to write 300 pages, how to find a publisher & many more irrelevant excuses. These excuses or reasons could be valid to some extent but these were becoming obstacle in my goal of writing a Book. I was writing messages, texts in mobiles, Content on notepads, quotes on bills and drafts in emails but never initiated as draft of Book. The I decided to allow myself to be a Beginner & threw away the facade of Perfection. when I began writing slowly, Page after Page, everything started taking shape and obstacles, limitation of my Evil mind started feeling pity in front of the vision of completion of this Book. Today I am in the stage of completion. I know that I haven’t made a great achievement till day but the fact I want to highlight through this, doesn’t matter what happens as a result, but I wouldn’t have regret. Because it the inaction hurts a lot than the failed attempt.
I asked myself Why Not Me? Why Not Now? & I ask you a question Why Not You ? When you have decided to begin? Its Now or Never ?
I have a habit of reading Wikipedia profile of every successful organization. From Mercedes Benz, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, TATA Group, Reliance, Ford, GE, Toyota, Honda & countless more. I found one common denominator in them; these ventures were born & raised through the idea, brain & hands of only one person, The 1Beginners! So, I decided to use this Phrase as title for my Firm!
See, before you get pro, you got to allow yourself to be Beginner!
With reference to my first blog, I would like to repeat again- Allow yourself to make Mistakes, fail a little it, Grow. there is no problems as a Beginner irrespective of your Age!
The beginning is prime thing of your career, dream or Goal. Numerous people fail in their life because they wait for Right time, Right situation, assistance from friends and family, boss and many more reasons. They fail to start. They fail to capitalize the importance of beginning. They always underestimate the small little steps. They should Say let’s do this, let’s do it, I would figure out whatever I would across. But In their mind, They keep on perfecting the situation and removing the probable obstacles, over the time the obstacles grow so bigger that the idea of the dream, business seems impossible, all this happens because you fail to work on the idea on the smaller stage.
The Insight– Most of you must be thinking, I am not ready, let Me get trained more, Let Me get prepared thoroughly, let Me practice more in background, let Me read more, let this fear subside, let me get confident. I have only one thing to say to those who are thinking like this- “You would never be Ready, you would never be prepared completely, You would never be confident enough.” The Fear would be always sitting on your shoulders, still you got to jump in & start working. You can’t be expert over the night, You cannot be expert if you can’t begin. Remember, Every expert in any field was once a Beginner!
Zig Ziglar Said-
See, People fail in their life and never reach to their dreams because they Never begin! They never gather enough courage to Begin! The 3% super achievers in life are the Extraordinary Beginners before they become a notable success!
See, If you have a dream, a Goal or milestone to reach in your life, you have to walk alone first. Nobody is going to come you to help you in the starting point and push you to reach on the top. You would be all alone in the inception. May be you can get somebody to join along the path, but don’t expect that to happen. Its all needs a Focus, commitment and sheer Will to begin, nothing else.
You got to start with one person, i.e. with you and you only as 1Beginner!
Don’t wait for anybody, not even for your own Shadow, if you wish to create something, Move yourself! Make a Move, Make it now!
Your Dreams begins with You & only You, Nothing Else! So, don’t just wait! Lets Begin Now, Be a 1Beginner!
