I always hear these two phrases ‘Start Where You Are’ and ‘Use What You Have’. Do you find that it’s usually people who have ‘made it’ (so to speak) that tend to offer those words of advice? I do.
You see, I get it, but I don’t wholly subscribe to the notion. They’re usually both said in a matter-of-fact manner, and I believe that there should be some follow up advice to those phrases.
Has anyone considered that sometimes, a conducive or nurturing environment is necessary in order to ‘start where you are’? Has anyone considered that to ‘use what you have’; you need to first of all possess certain things worth using?
Don’t get me wrong, to some extent I do understand what people mean when they use these phrases, especially as there is a lot of nuance that I am not currently touching on. I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments below.
