The Beginning Doesn’t Matter but Where Am Going Does
The reality of life today is that, it is those who take action and not those who sit on a corner and procrastinate all day long that eventually get stuff done! The Beginning Doesn’t Matter, The road might be long and very narrow but the destination is all that should matter.
For every big company, platform, business that is successful today, the story of their beginnings is all the same. It all starts from naught.
A lot of us may have a strong wish to start doing something that has been on our mind for a while, but some part of us still resist as if we were on a path to failure.

I am on the road to success and I am working hard in the present to make for a better tomorrow. Jack Ma, the founder of alibaba once stated that in the beginning, for the first three years he made zero revenue.
And many times he was trying to pay up at a restaurant the owner would say “your bill has been paid”. And there would be a note saying “Mr. Ma, I’m your customer on the alibaba platform. I made a lot of money and I know you don’t. So I paid the bill”.
He knew where he was headed and he stayed steadfast. Statistical figures at the end of the year 2017 showed that alibaba made approximately $22.99 billion.
What if a situation occurred where he told himself, I can’t keep going on I give up. He certainly won’t be where he is today. Your legacy should be that you stayed on course, from the beginning to the end because you believed in yourself.
And according to Francis Jake, “there must be a beginning for any great matter, but the continuing until the end, till it is thoroughly finished yields the true glory”.
