Centuries ago, Chinese philosopher, Lao-tzu said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Making that first step may not be easy. Often times, the first step is the most challenging of the entire journey. I know this to be the truth all too well! Stop waiting on the opportune time. Too many years may escape. Start your journey now. Sometimes, you have to just step out on faith. Stumbling blocks such as procrastination, excuses, doubts, and fears prohibit progress. They can be conquered. Don’t let temporary deterrents become permanent roadblocks! Worst yet, don’t convince yourself that you can’t do it or talk yourself out of doing it. Once you take the first step, even if they are baby steps, the closer you become to accomplishing your goal. If you keep moving, you will eventually cross the finish line. “Nothing beats a failure but a try!” We all need a nudge every now and then. By the way, this message is my talking aloud to myself; being my own cheerleader of motivation so that I can keep going! If it rubs off on you, terrific! I hope you join me; the journey is always better with company!
