The Power of Baby Steps

compass copySometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should. If you’re human, at one time in your life you have probably hit that point where work was no fun, every relationship was a struggle and you didn’t even feel comfortable in your body.

At times like these, changing your life can seem overwhelming. There’s so much to do…where do you even start?

It’s really quite simple—just change ONE SMALL thing.

Eliminate one unhealthy food from your diet. Do one unselfish act of kindness for a loved one with no expectation of anything in return. Find one thing about your job you can be grateful for. Take a different route to work one day. Any simple change has the potential to dramatically change your perspective and transform your life.

When a ship at sea changes course by just one degree, 100 miles later it’s in completely different, potentially smoother, waters than it would have been without that small modification in direction. 

The most profound shifts are the ones you make on the inside. One of the great miracles in life is how even a small change in your perception can dramatically expand your perspective. Annoyance can easily be turned into curiosity. Frustration can be flipped to become gratitude. Even anger can be transformed into fuel for some much-needed exercise.

You don’t have to tackle your whole world all at once, just make one simple shift, take one small Baby Step.

The best part? Experiment freely! If you don’t prefer your new perspective, you can always go back to your old one or pick another new one.

What “one-degree” shift can YOU make TODAY to Baby Step your way to a more fulfilling life?

About djwlifecoach

As a retired board-certified coach, author and Reiki master teacher, I continue to share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. What's love got to do with minimizing stress and getting unstuck? Everything! My book, "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" (Hay House/Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world's largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout, including a sustained 80-pound weight loss and freedom from 10 years of debilitating depression, led to finding my purpose sharing hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. Through healing and self-exploration, I discovered that loving yourself unconditionally is the key to transforming your personal life, your work and the world. With attention and intention, I learned to live in alignment with love through a wealth of energy-shifting tools and techniques that help me reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm by releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and habits. My books, blog and radio episodes help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness.

I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Wilson, and the coaching cats who manage my life—SiddhaLee and Maisy Jane.
