The best place to start is precisely where you are. The best time to start is the moment you are in.
As difficult and challenging as your situation may be, in that situation is a way to move forward. From where you are right now, there is a path that leads to precisely where you would like to be.
Don't waste your time wishing for a more favorable starting point. Instead, make use of the starting point you have, and get going.
Rather than complaining about not having enough, use your creativity and imagination to become more and more effective with what you do have. Devote your energy to creating new value in the present, not to resentment of the past.
This is the best place to start, because this is the place from which you can start right now. From here you can literally go anywhere, so go ahead, take that first step and don't look back.
