I am moving into online content and that requires video recording. Well you have to have equipment and lighting and space to do that. None of which I have. And I could easily say "I'll start when I can afford that really nice camera" or "I'll start when I have a home with enough space for me to record" and I could go on and on about the things that I "need" to get started.
The thing is we don't actually need that much to get started. So for the longest time, I packed up a table and plants and my computer and my microphone and hauled it all to my friend's studio 20 minutes away. Unpacked it all and recorded for hours on my little ole iphone 7.
Driving and hauling all of that around has since become tiresome, so I moved my "dining room" table into my kitchen, took a massive canvas painting of my child off the wall, took the shade off my lamp and created a tiny little "office" where I could record. And no one will know that outside of the frame it looks like a bomb exploded.
My daughter came in the day I set it up and she asked me how long it was going to look like this. I kindly responded "as long as it takes."
Are you doing everything you can to make your dreams a reality right now? Or are you using a bunch of excuses to delay them? Do not put off until tomorrow what can be done today. You might just have to get a little creative and work a little harder. But it's worth it. It's building a "whatever it takes" mentality and strength within you. Do I wish I had a studio shed complete with professional lighting and sweet recording equipment? Absolutely! But until then, I'll do what I can with what I have.
We've got this!
