How to Start Anything – 10 Simple Tips for Getting Started

Kick Start

The start is where it all begins.


When you want to start something new, figuring out where to begin can be challenging. There are so many different options and directions you can take, but not all of them are the best for you. So, what do you do?



Getting started is the hardest part of anything. But it can also be the most thrilling, exciting, and powerful moment like starting with your first parenthood experience or driving a car and discovering new places that you’ve never seen before.

If you see it as something very hard to do, it is essential to find a way to make it easier. It’s important to remember that there is no right or wrong way to get started with something new, and every experience begins with the first step.


We all have things we want to do but never get around to doing or we create many distractions and find many reasons and excuses telling ourselves that they would never work and is not worth trying. 


To help you get started on those things, here are some tips for getting started something. Here are just a few of them:

10 Tips For Getting Started With Something

1.Make a decision and clearly say what you want.

Start with something you really want. Instead of starting your vision with “If …” or “It would be nice” or “Maybe” or “I’ll see if it happens”, be comfortable saying clearly what you want even if you don’t know how you will get it.

Some examples:

“I want to go on holiday to Europe.“

“I want new freshly painted walls in all my house.“

2. Connect to your goal

If you are starting with something you want is very easy to start. But if you are finding it hard to get a connection to actual activities, know that is normal. It is always harder to do something you’ve never done before than something you do very well. But that’s where you should find excitement and motivation within.


Know that victory in any achievement always comes from within. The true joy comes when you step into an area where you can grow, develop and become more.


Try to imagine the feeling of knowing you’ve already done it. When you connect to that feeling, you will find the fuel to start and pursue it no matter what. The stronger that connection is, the easier you will overcome any challenges on the way.


Making those decisions at the beginning can be challenging but, over time, becomes more effortless. And then true victory comes.


So first, look for the connection to your goals and where you want to be and how much that means to you, and then motivation will follow.


Use the Vision Board to help you connect to your goals.

3. Focus on the positive mindset

If you find it hard to start or do not find the emotion within that, you are looking for motivation – the key is to start anyway. Start moving the energy, no matter what. The mind will always rebel and try to persuade you that maybe starting is not as important or that you can’t do it today for one reason or another. Then you have another reason and another, and soon you find yourself in conversation with yourself and the mental process that is keeping you away from the start of taking action.


Every time we give up on positive goals, the next time will be more challenging. That’s how procrastination starts to grow its roots.


So, the key is to be aware, recognise this inner conversation, and start moving. Just start, and connection and feeling will come.

4. Research

Having research is a great way to start. You can obtain the valuable information you are looking for, assess your present state and get an idea of what you will need to reach your goal. You can start from the internet and ask people that already have or are in the position where you want to be.


Preparation for anything is vital. Make a list and obtain everything you need to do to start the task. This includes some information or knowledge, materials, tools, and time.

5. Make a plan and schedule

Write down everything that needs to be done.

Identify key milestones that you can use to set your goals.

Pick a time when you will be able to focus and not be interrupted for at least an hour or two.

Set a timer for 15 minutes and focus on starting the task for those 15 minutes.

Tell yourself that it doesn’t matter how long it takes or what happens during the process, as long as you start it today!

6. Start small

Start small if you’re unsure where to begin and work your way up. Most of the fear disappears once you begin.

You don’t need to go all in from the start; try starting with one small step instead. This will give you time to evaluate whether this is something that interests you or not before going all in and making a big commitment.

It is also easier to complete a smaller task than a larger one with more steps or requires more time or resources.

When you finish something new for the first time, it will give you confidence and motivation to continue.

7. Have faith

There is power at the start, and there is a metaphysical explanation. Many people also say that when they align to their higher goal, they start meeting people who can help them or see or have what they need when they make the first step.


There is true power when we align our will with life itself. At that moment, life then starts to support us.

8. Be patient

When you start anything new, you need time and momentum to align and immerse yourself into new energy. So be patient and easy on yourself. Understand that there is a process of change that requires time to produce results.

9. Ask for help if you need it

Many people can help you and advise on getting started with something, from friends and family members to experts in the field.

10. Just Do it!

Yes, just start, take action, and the way in front of you will unfold. It has to. Just keep putting in the effort, and you will discover on the way many fulfilling things that you otherwise wouldn’t find. Embrace uncertainties and anything that the mind sees as fear or failure. Know that an element of life comes in those times and inner growth that otherwise can not be achieved.


What good are you planning to start today? Big things always start with small steps.
