There’s a quote I like to share with my workshop attendees …

“Don’t compare your Chapter 1 to someone else’s Chapter 20.”

In other words, every successful business begins with its very first customer or client. Every popular podcast has its first listener. Every savings plan starts with that initial deposit.

It’s so easy to overlook the fact that just about every successful person we know started at the bottom of their field.

David Geffen — the billionaire music producer, movie studio exec, and philanthropist — kicked off his career in the mailroom at the William Morris Agency.

Steven Spielberg’s career began as an unpaid assistant at Universal Studios.

Warren Buffett sold Coca-Cola, golf balls, stamps, and magazines door-to-door so he could purchase his first 3 stocks at the age of ten.

Jeff Bezos started Amazon in his garage.

When it comes to your success story, skipping chapters is not an option.

Has your first chapter gone unfinished? Most of them do. Mid-sentence. With each subsequent empty page representing nothing more than time that would have passed anyway.

After every breakdown comes a breakthrough. Any story worth telling demands something to overcome — a conflict, a crisis, an antagonist, a plot that thickens.

Why would yours be any different?

The only way to turn the pages of your story to Chapter 20 is to keep writing. Never stop writing, my friend. When you keep writing your story, you inspire others to start writing their own.

Remember, the time will pass anyway.
