Embracing Being A Beginner


The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried.
~ Stephen McCranie

Hey, Lovelies.

I had a beautiful session with a new client yesterday. She is approaching an exciting time in her life – the end of one career with glimpses of something new in the wings, something creative and heart-felt and filled with possibility.

There’s only one problem.

Like most of us, she’s impatient. She’s used to operating at the top of her field. She’s used to being a highly skilled expert, at being efficient, and at getting things done quickly and well.

Moving to something new means needing to be a beginner again. Finding time to learn and practice new things, and to find your own way of doing things as you progress on your journey of learning.

Often, at the start of a creative project (in art, business, cooking, building, crafting, writing, film-making, anything…) the things you picture in your heard are beyond the scope of your current skill level. That’s okay. Persistence and being able to embrace being a beginner will help you find your way forward, and it just might show you things you’d never imagined – for yourself or your wonderful idea.
And think – if you DON’T get started as a beginner, you’ll still have no skills and a massive knowledge gap two years from now, ten years from now, and be no closer to your dream.

Just start. Allow yourself the joy of learning something new. I promise, it will be worth it!
Love, and massive encouragement, Nicole xx

  1. Great advice impatience can also be a challenge I understand going through the same experience. I am doing some energy technique to help with the anxiety.
