Have you ever known exactly where you wanted to go, but hesitated because you didn’t know exactly how to get there?
That hesitation is both common and human. Before fully committing, we like to know what’s in store and whether the risks will outweigh the rewards. Nature built that self-preservation instinct into us for survival of the species. When it takes over—running rampant in your life—fear of the UNKNOWN can hold you hostage and rob you of ever making your dreams a reality.
Fortunately, when your self-preservation instinct is blended with insatiable curiosity, boundless creativity and endless drive, you are amazingly adaptable and capable of handling whatever comes your way.
Every day—often without even realizing it—you avert disaster and arrive safely on the other side of thousands of challenges, large and small. Gaining confidence from your vast reservoir of experience and drawn by the overwhelming desire for that which you seek, you can rise to meet the road ahead, even if you can only see the next inch of your journey.
Good news! Most of the time, clearly seeing the inch right in front of you is enough. You’ll handle that inch, and then the next inch, and the inch after that and, as the old saying goes, “By the yard it’s hard, but it’s a cinch by the inch.”
No matter what dream you’re chasing or challenge you’re facing, if you just keep taking one baby step at a time, you will eventually arrive at your destination safe, sound and successful.
What ONE BABY STEP will you take TODAY to move in the direction of your desires?
