Moses thought of every excuse he could to persuade the Lord not to send him to Egypt, but when Moses finally accepted the job, things went well…initially,

So Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent him, and all the signs which He had commanded him. Then Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel. And Aaron spoke all the words which the LORD had spoken to Moses. Then he did the signs in the sight of the people. So the people believed; and when they heard that the LORD had visited the children of Israel and that He had looked on their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshiped (Exodus 4.28–31).

God told Moses what to say and what to do, then Moses told his brother Aaron what the Lord had said, and then Aaron spoke to the leaders of Israel what the Lord had promised, the people believed!

Granted Moses had many challenges after this, but he always won the victory simply by finally doing what the Lord said to do.
