Everyone starts with zero. Zero views, zero followers, zero users, zero listeners, zero readers, zero products sold. Mozart started with zero, Van Gogh, George R. R. Martin, Steven Spielberg, and Shakespeare too. Yes, even Apple started with zero.
We all do. And if we’re patient, willing to invest our time and energy, we can slowly work our way up to 10, 100, and if we’re extremely lucky, even 1000.
But one is enough. If one person cares about what you have to say, you can move mountains.
Undervaluing just one view, just one reader, just one person who cares about what you have to say is an enormous mistake.
Until Next Week
Move up one step at the time, and never forget that it’s a privilege if just one person is willing to listen to what you have to say. Never underestimate this. One is greater than zero.
