The proverb is true. The journey of 1000 miles does begin with a single step.
The first step is often tough though. You consider everything that can go wrong. You question yourself about every little detail of the journey.
“What if I screw up?”
“What if it doesn’t work out?”
“What if I blow it?”
I have another question, “What if you never start – even small?” You’ll never get any further along than where you are right now. Look around. Get comfortable…because you’re not going anywhere if you’re not willing to go small. Warning: getting too comfortable just looking at the current view will kill any chance you’ve got to get to that mountain peak in the distance!
Go! Move. Take some meaningful action right now!
I don’t know if you’ll ever get where you’re headed, but I know for a certainty that you’ll never get there by sitting still.
Go now. Go small. Figure it out as you go. Keep your eyes open and enjoy the scenery along the way, too.
As Spock would say, “Live long and prosper!”
