“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” ~ Lao Tzu
Are you fulfilled? Are you really and truly in a place that brings much meaning to this one life of yours?
See, the thing is – it's easy to "lie" to ourselves and those around us – and say that everything is good, when true reality is something different.
Or sometimes – maybe we carry this thought with us – that "when" x or y or z happens – then, baby, I'll be ready to do my thing.
Except there's always another x, y, or z that gets in the way.
That – or we let our dreams and desires just fade – accepting that they will never happen.
Have you ever done any of these?
Why is it that we do this? (it's a common thing…)
Ridicule. Fear of failure. Fear of success. Unknowns. Getting out of our comfort zones. Etc. Etc.
We let our mind get in the way of our heart.
What if – we just, for even a moment, let our heart lead the way? Who knows what might happen?
And all it takes is a small step to get us moving forward.
Here's the deal, though: what steps we deliberately choose to take can make the difference between steps toward deep and meaningful success vs. just steps.
You get to choose.
