As I see it, the two biggest mistakes that hold us back from achieving our goals are:

  1. We don’t start,
  2. We give up too soon.

The good news is that that if you haven’t started yet, you still can.

And if you’ve given up, you can get back in the game.

Starting doesn’t have to be dramatic.  It can be as simple as writing down your goals, making a phone call, writing the first page.

And persisting is just putting one foot in front of the other, day after day, year after year.

If you can manage that, you’ll get there in the end.

But if you never start or give up too soon, that’s a mistake that only you are responsible for.
