You are likely familiar with the old Chinese proverb that says the journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.
No matter the journey.
Often the very hardest step to take is the first step.
It can feel like a leap.
Once you get moving though, you also know that a body in motion tends to stay in motion. A body at rest tends to stay at rest.
So whatever your goal, your dream, your aspirations…
Only you know what those things are.
My advice to you, is to start to think about your goal as possible.
Even if you don’t fully believe it yet.
One of my favorite phrases to use is, “It’s possible that _____”
It’s possible that I could not chart at home on weekends.
It’s possible that I could l could take more time to myself.
What is possible for you? It’s possible that you _____________.
Then take a step. The first step of the journey of 1,000 miles. Then you have started the momentum. Then just don’t stop. One foot in front of the other. Sure, sometimes you’ll end up on a curvy non-linear path, but you are moving, sometimes two steps forward and one step back, but always with a net positive in the direction of your dreams.
Get practical and tangible, come up with a real step that you can take toward your dream life today. Even if it’s just going home at 6pm, no matter how many charts are left in your inbox. Just take a step. You decide which one. Then keep on taking steps. You’ll be surprised just how far you’ll get by the end of a few days, weeks, months, years.
