I got this from an MIT lecture given by Jeff Bezos. Back in the days when someone was talking about selling multhiple phones to the same house, people asked “Why would anyone have multiple phones in their homes?“
Later on it became a common phenomenon for Amercan households to have separate phones in the kitchen, Bedroom and in the living room. Then Smartphones came in. You know how it is now.
A Nobel winning Economist, Paul Krugman predicted that the “Impact of the internet will only be as same as how much Fax printers on the economy“ (Not exact quote)
When e-commerce was in its early stages in India, there were serious discussions on banning e-commerce because they thought that it could be a place for illicit activities.

It’s really hard to pursue something when it seems totally achievable for you but people around you think it’s impossible.
Yes, you can start writing even if you have no writing experience and have no followers on Social Media (Everyone had zero followers at some point)
