Here it is plain and simple. Everything is done 1 step at a time. Even Rome wasn't built in a day.
I am looking at this mountainous task of starting a business. Reality sets in, it is huge, it is scary and yet I feel somewhat calm in the face of it. Why, you ask? Why are you so completely calm about all of it (OK. maybe i'm freaking out a little)? This is why I feel calm. I know its all about making small movements. Taking one step closer. I wonder whether or not the pharaohs who were building pyramids at some point where like, "what the sphinx did we get ourselves into here?"
I went and saw Michael Franti and Spearhead this weekend in Stratton, VT at the Wanderlust Festival. He's got a song that's called "One Step Closer to You". The lyrics are, "even when I'm falling down, my heart says follow through, I take one step closer to you". Michael Franti invites us to be the best version of ourselves that we can be.
So many times we look at all the steps and do nothing because of how big it is. Or. We start and don't continue because of distraction, procrastination, fear, criticism etc. I have been there... Truth is, if its meant to happen, you'll do the work.
I believe in change.
I believe I can change.
I believe that if you want to, you can change.
I believe in the power of community.
I believe in possibility.
I believe in the healing & restorative power of nature.
I believe that it really is "our light not our darkness that frightens us" most.
Ask yourself this one question. What is one step that you could take today that would get you closer to where you want to be. Nothing has to change if you don't want it to. BUT... If you do want change, then its up to you. And if it's up you what are you going to do?
Use the comment section to post your action for the day, week or month. I look forward to hearing from you.
