Wherever you are is the perfect place to begin… I love that. I love the thought that you don’t have to wait to be slimmer, older, more qualified…now is the time to take the first step to wherever you want to go. So often we spend our lives waiting…waiting to be a little bit more perfect, a little bit more worthy, waiting for our real life to begin and really I wonder…why?
Perhaps its because we are afraid? Afraid to fail? Afraid that we are not good enough? Afraid of there being too much to do? Every journey starts with the first step, and whether that step is confident or tentative we must take it to move forward. And forward is surely the way we want to go?
The thing is…life moves forward inexorably, doesn’t it? So why do we try to stay in one place? Because its safer? If we choose to move forward, to begin doing or being what or who we want to be … how exciting might that be?
Just think… who do you want to be? Where do you want to go? If you have a picture or a thought as to what that is, then what is stopping you from moving towards it? What steps could you begin to take to get there?
By beginning now, taking the right size steps forward for you, you will begin to get closer to what you want from life. It doesn’t matter what that is, but by starting now, this moment… you will be making headway. Each day moving closer to your dream, step by step. And by taking that decision, the decision to take action, to begin now… how good will you feel about yourself? How exciting will that journey be? Scary? Maybe… but maybe exhilarating too?
None of us knows what the future holds. None of us can know if we will succeed, but if we don’t dare to take the first step, we will never find out. And if that is true… then now is the perfect place to begin.
