The most important step in life is the first step. If you can take the first step, you have conquered your fears. The first step gets us going. It gives us more opportunities. It gives us courage to face what is in front of us.
Know this: “If you don’t have the courage to take the first step, you won’t have the courage to take the second one.”
“Chance is the first step you take, luck is what comes afterward.”– Amy Tan
It does not matter what you want to do with yourself. If you want to go to school to learn a new skill, take the first step. If you want to open your own small business, don’t wait, take the first step. If you want to be a world renowned writer, right the first page. The first BAD page.
“Chance is the first step
luck is what comes afterward.”-
“You get better by doing something, not by running away from it. “
Once you take the first bold step, your fears will disappear. You will be confident to take more steps. You will be happy to do more things. The first step is a motivator. But if you are scared to take the first step, you will never leave where you are. So to leave where you are, you must take the first step.
Janis Joplin said, “You got to get it while you can.“
Before you start your journey to success, you must first define what you are chasing. When you define your purpose, it makes the journey a lot more easier to travel.
There is nothing in life you cannot achieve if you want it badly. You are the only one who can get it.
I don’t know what you want. But whatever it is that you want to achieve in your life, you have got to go get it.
If you want to be successful, think differently, do things differently, pursue the right vocation, hang out with the right people- people who are committed to life, respect the process, and help other people get what they want.
You can get what you want if you plant the right seed. Plant the seed of happiness. Plant the seed of love. Plant the seed of great relationships. Plant the seed of service. Plant the seed of optimism.
“You find what you seek.” “You reap what you sow.”
Mencius said, “What proceeds from you will return to you.”
You can do it.
“The only person stopping you from reaching your goals is YOU.” Everything is out there for you get if you have the guts to pursue it. You are the only one stopping yourself.
In order to free yourself from the prison that you put yourself, you have to start by believing in yourself again. Stop thinking about what you cannot do, and start thinking of what you can do to change your life.
Always see yourself as a warrior. Face your fears with courage. People who are successful do just that. If you want to be successful, if you want to get what you want, if you want to change your situation, you must face your biggest demon- FEAR.
To face your biggest demon-fear, believe in yourself. Don’t jump into what you don’t know how to do. If you do, you have just increased your fear. Start small, but think big.
Starting small is the best way to build self-confidence. It is important because if you try and succeed, you will want to try again, and again, and again. In doing so, you are building your self-confidence.
Remember that the only thing that can destroy fear is ACTION.
“Inaction increases your fear.” “Action decreases your fear.”
“The biggest failure in life is not to start small; it is not to start something at all.”
Whatever you want to start, to do, to begin, to chase, to grow, start it now. The right time is now! Not tomorrow. Not nest week. Now!
