Good day family. This is Aimee J., Your personal hype man. Thank you so much for tuning in. It is Thursday, January 9, 2020 it is so good to be here with you guys. Did you hear that new intro music? Did you hear it? Did you like it? Let me play for you one more time. Hold on.
*theme music plays*
That piece of magic was created for me by Jared Arnold. Thank you so much Jared. I appreciate it. Man is talented. He's working on some other stuff for me. Can't wait to show it with a share it with you guys. But um, it actually leads to the topic of today. So one, hope you're having a good day. If you're listening to this in the morning, go out and have a, yeah, I don't curse. So have a kick-butt day. There you go. Have a kick butt day. It felt weird as it was coming out. Um, I'm so stoked. So today I want to talk to you guys about just starting, right? I...in the last week of 2019 something called to me to say, Hey Aimee, see if you can help other people with reminding them how fantastic they are, how beautiful they are, how wonderful and in awe I am of them. And you know, I was like, pshhh, that's a, I've done a podcast before.
I've done a few. It's a lot of work. What do I do? I don't have the intro. I don't have this, I don't have that. And you know, I could have easily delayed this thing. I could have put it off for who knows how long. But that's not the point. That's not how things get done. You have to start with what you have. So for seven and eight episodes, we started with an applause for an intro. It hurt me to do it. I didn't like it, but I had to just start. You know, you got to start from somewhere. There has to be a baseline for you to grow. If you wait until everything is perfect for you to begin, you're never going to begin. That's the thing. That's where the devil tries to keep you down. Because you're waiting for perfection and it doesn't work.
It won't work because you're going to keep putting it off and putting it off. That's not right. That's off I missing this. Nobody actually knows things are perfect. You're not going to say, Hey, this is perfect. That's why I started. Nobody does that. Start where you are today guys. If you've been holding onto something, don't hold onto it any longer. Just put it out there. You have to just start. Here's why. If you try to start at perfection, where do you go from there? Where is the growth? Where is the evolution of what you're trying to do? There will be none and that's sad. That's actually really sad because that just means you're going to be stagnant, but if you start from right now where you are with what you have, look at how this podcast and Alexa skill has grown. We started out with applause for an intro and now we have a sick beat to start it off.
Things will continue to evolve. Things will continue to change with this podcast, but I just had to start. I just had to begin right now. I'm recording this like the day before cause I haven't had a chance to like batch record, get you guys, you know, pumped up. But I got to start. I didn't have a plan and so I'm just trying to keep to my commitment of recording, right? It's not going to be easy. It's absolutely not going to be easy, but it's very important for you to just start with what you got. You know, piecemeal it together. Look at what you have, what is missing. Can you truly not begin today? And if the answer is yeah, I got to wait, what is the one thing? What is it you need? Just go ahead and get started. Put yourself out there. Everybody loves a grow story.
Everybody loves to see the coming of age. Everyone loves to see someone going from rags to riches. That's what we're doing. We're going from what we have and evolving and growing. My chasing dreams podcast hurted very roughly. And you know, we, I didn't have a proper mic set up. I just talked to my friends. But slowly I grew, slowly I kind of had new things, right? And now after 200 episodes, we're still going to continue to grow and change. And that's important. All part of the process. If you try to take away that process by trying to be perfect, try to do it behind the scenes, nobody's gonna appreciate it. Nobody's gonna appreciate it. People appreciate it more. If you start out with less and then build on, than if you just start out all ready to go because we don't see that battle. We don't see that growth, right?
So keep that in mind. There shouldn't be anything holding you back. You should just go ahead and do it. Whatever's on your heart, whatever's in your you're passionate about, go ahead and do it. I'm telling you, you'll be fine. You'll be all right. This is your hype man telling you, "You will be all right." Right? So go ahead. Get what it is you need to do together guys, and just go kill it. Do your best and just knock down those doors, whatever it is. If it's an exam, just study. Do your best. Let go, let God, you know. If it's a project, start working on it and then don't wait for perfection. Let it go and let people see it. Get feedback, get improvements. If it's a podcast you've been waiting for air that episode, just use your cell phone. Start off from somewhere. There is a, there's a will, there's a way.
But if you continue to put yourself in way of actually launching, that's a problem, right? We get in our own ways. We got to that. So keep that in mind because you guys are smart, you are brilliant, and you're so talented in the world. Needs to see what you have. The world needs you as you are, because you are awesome. You are loved, you are needed. And most importantly, guys, you are enough. I say day in and day out. You are enough the way you are, how you are, who you are. That's what the world needs. That's what we need. That's what I need. Alright, so hit me up. Connect with me on social media. Hope this is helping you guys till next time. Tomorrow when we reconnect. Remember, Don't stop, Keep chasing.
