STOP AND THINK – You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great. (Zig Ziglar, late motivational speaker)
Sometimes we hesitate to start on a new project or introduce a new thought. We don’t think anyone will respond well because we aren’t well known or have a great name. As Ziglar suggests, that’s thinking backward. We cannot achieve recognition or acclaim until we’ve launched out into the unknown. We have to start in order to finish or to be recognized.
“Now begin the work, and the Lord be with you.” (1 Chronicles 22:16)
