Action is a catalyst for change. When action mixes with ambition, or vision, or an idea, it’s a force that once ignited, is unstoppable. Action is the engine of progress. And deliberate action is like an arrow hitting its target. As you consider where you are today, and where you want to go tomorrow, action is the vehicle to get you there. When you have a goal, taking the very first step can feel heavy or scary or sometimes so difficult that you just get stuck because it’s not even worth trying. I’ve felt stuck, and when I do, I just stat crawling. Eventually, without even knowing it I’m walking toward my goal. Inaction is the enemy of action so in order to quiet the fear that is preventing you from moving forward, and amplify your vision, all you need to do is start taking one step and then another toward your goal.
What does taking one step forward mean to you today? Is that step doing or re-doing your resume, applying for a job, writing down your life goals, asking someone out, making a list of the things you want to change, crying, feeling, asking for a meeting with an investor, inviting feedback? Whatever step you feel showing up in your mind or heart right now, just take it. Once you take that step, see how another step feels. It feels so good, right? As you take steps forward, you will reach your goal and before you know it, you will have achieved your dream. And if you fall or fail as you cultivate action, I failed, and others have failed big, only to get back up, and reach unimaginable heights. If you take action you will move from where you are today to where you want to go. Take one step today toward creating a life you love and take another one tomorrow. I’m rooting for you.
