Are you waiting for all the stars to align?
You could keep doing that. Or, once you know what to do, you could commit to it, and do the few things you know to do.
One night under a tree on a golf course in the moonlight, Billy Graham committed to preaching. Only then did God move, and the opportunities come, the resources assemble. The greatest evangelism team of the twentieth century did not come from a nation-wide search for all-stars; a few school friends teamed together with some role players who became friends. A door opened, then another, then another.
The Beatles were friends and acquaintances from Liverpool. No tryouts or auditions to find just the right combination. They did what they loved, and what they knew they had to do. No excuses.
The Nester realized blogs could be about anything, with your own rules, and that she could write about what she loves. That was enough to start and keep going. No business plans. No degrees and schooling. No excuses.
Emily committed to write a book, and as she wrote, a team congealed to edit, encourage, and give feedback. Then after the book was released, and speaking opportunities appeared, another team rose from the mist insisting on overseeing her speaking choices. She didn’t pursue them, they pursued her. But first, she committed.
You could try do that.
Or you could keep waiting for that star alignment.
