Take the first Step

Take the first step. Stop overthinking. Start trying. We get caught up in thinking and trying to figure out reasons for why we haven’t made things happen, we forget to try. Trying builds momentum. Take the first step. If the first step doesn’t work out, it can be made stronger through practice. Many of us fear beginning, but every journey begins with a first step. Challenge yourself to overcome your fears, believe in yourself. Unlock the courage to be the you, who you were meant to be.

Be done with the status quo! We were taught in high school science class that a body at rest tends to stay at rest unless acted upon by a force. Sir Isaac Newton’s law was correct. However, you be the force! Don’t be tempted to do nothing. If you feel stuck, take the step, you won’t be stuck longer, you will see things those who are sitting and philosophizing can’t even imagine. Opportunities will come your way. Being safe is over-rated. Hang tight, trust yourself, it’s time for the ride of your life. Time to grow. Perhaps grow or die. Sit in the middle no more! Be done with being safe. You’re a big boy/girl now, you can handle any stumbles that come your way. Take the step.
