Rule 4: Be Bad at Something New

You will want to feel competent, confident, and proud of the things you do. But you never start there; there is always a journey. Your first steps will be wobbly and eventually you will learn to run. You’ll struggle with the alphabet before you can read a novel. Never let being bad at something stop you from starting. How can you ever get better if you don’t have a place to begin? Before you can be good at anything you have to be bad at something new.
