MOTIVATION: The First Step Rule
The first step is always the worst step. This is the irony of life. It is our first step that we make some of our greatest mistakes. It is the same step that we learn some of the greatest lessons of life. The first step has the trap of inexperience. It is also the doorway to opportunities.
You either take your first step or perish consumed by inertia or non-action.
What’s your greatest dream? Whatever it is, the moment of achievement is born with the first step.
The Mr You in the future might be that elegant human being, fully developed, and self-actualized. You are murdering that individual by not taking the first step towards your goal.
After the first step, at least for a couple of days, don’t look back. Don’t think about the past. Don’t recollect the pain. Let’s go back there later. Now, it’s time to arrange our stuff… to look for further opportunities, to take the second step in the journey. Remember, your first step always offers you the possibility to choose the next.
Only the first step blesses you with the miracle of the second step. The hope of the journey belongs to those who stop the postponement of the start.
If you don’t know what your first step is, create the first step by writing about your goal.
Non-action is the failure. By taking the first step, you have already defeated failure. Everything else is only lessons for future steps.
The difference between a goal and a daydream is the first step.
