One Step at a Time

Standard

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao-Tzu

Do you believe in yourself?
Do you believe you CAN achieve your goals?  Do you believe you can have the life you want, the life you are WORTHY of?

Every journey begins with the first STEP.  What STEPs are you taking toward your goals, your dreams, your aspirations?  What do
you want to achieve personally? Professionally? Financially? Spiritually? How will you reach those goals? Do you have a plan? If you have a plan, is it working? Why not?  What if  you took ONE step a day towards your goals.  What if that’s all it took to realize your dreams?

I firmly believe that if we do something, just ONE thing, one STEP toward our goals every day, we can realize those goals.  The challenge comes in being consistent and taking at least ONE small step every  single day until your goal is reached.  Does it have to be a monumental step?  I don’t think so.  It just has to be one positive, productive step towards your goal.  If you move towards your goal steadily, it cannot elude you forever. Eventually, you will be where you want to be.

Move and the way will open.” – Zen proverb

For instance, let’s say you have a weight goal to reach.  What if you took one small step toward that goal every day? What if on Monday, you watched a program  on healthy weight release and took notes.  Then Tuesday, you spent 15 minutes online looking up the nearest gym and getting quotes on membership.  Are those tangible steps toward your goal?  Absolutely!  They are small steps, but they are steps nonetheless.  Would your steps have to get bigger (i.e. start an exercise program, actually join the gym you were researching, changing eating habits, etc.) in order to reach your goal?   Yes, and I believe you can do that by taking your time and progressively increasing the boldness of your steps.

“Slow and steady wins the race.” – Aesop

Just start where you are with what you have and commit yourself to taking ONE step, no matter how small (in your mind) toward your dream every day.  You can do it!! I believe in you.
