Anmol Seth update 24 Mar 2018: "How does one start over at 30?"
We prefer the familiar, the safe, the predictable and that is perfectly understandable, but that’s not easy (or even possible) in a fast-changing world.
Perhaps the safest route to take is to embrace uncertainty. Step into the unknown on your own terms. Don’t be a hostage to the actions of others especially complete strangers.
Don't be scared.
We exhaust ourselves and this turns enthusiasm into self-doubt and self-doubt into self-sabotage.
We think everyone else is doing everything better, quicker and more successfully than we are.
Be patient. Take it one step at a time.
You have more time than you think.
Don’t be afraid of it. Don’t worry about. It’s not the end it’s only the start.
Zero is the risk you have to take to get where you want to go.
It’s a good place to be at the beginning because the only way from there is up.
I’ve been there many times and you never stay there for long.
Stop waiting for the next opportunity to come along, the next idea to appear, the next relationship, the next dream, the next bit of guru advice.
Most of the time we give up just when we are about to succeed.
It took me too many years to learn the lesson. Don't make the same mistake.
