Action is fascinating because action is habitual. You can be in the habit of action or the habit of inaction – both having dramatically different results. The more you create the habit of action, the more action you take. And the more you create the habit of inaction, the harder it is to get started.
Which habit are you in? What holds you back? All it takes is that first step. Then another step. No one EVER said it has to be the right step because you can adjust along the way. It just has to be a step, and all the rest will work itself out.
This Chinese proverb by Lao-tzu expresses it well: “A thousand mile journey begins with the first step.”
What is the moral of this story? Don’t wait until your perfect plans are made and your fears are gone.
- Are the days just passing you by without any sense of purpose?
- Would you like to go to the office with a spring in your step because you love what you do instead of being stuck in a job that just pays the bill, but leaves you feeling drained at the end of the day?
- Would you like to build your life around your passion instead of going about it as others tell you how you should be living it?
The perfect time for change is now. Take the first step, then make the other steps a habit.
