“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Today’s tip for moving out of your comfort zone and into your greatness is simple: begin.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I procrastinate when something seems “too big.” I can get myself into a sort of mental paralysis with the exasperating question, “Where do even I start?!” And I can get myself so worked up that I end up doing nothing.
Taking that first step – toward anything – is often the hardest. But remember – if you can take just one step forward you’ve created momentum.
To get up the gumption to move toward your goal focus on why you want it. How is it going to change your life and that of others for the better? How is it going to feel when you accomplish it? And then, commit to doing just one thing. Think of that one action as an accomplishment in itself. You can even think up an awesome reward for yourself when you do it…whatever motivates you.
There is magic in commitment, in taking the first step. In that moment you signal to the Universe that you are ready and you create a new energy around your goal that propels it. You likely will also feel a sense of relief. We often experience a nagging feeling of anxiety when we know we want or need to take action but do not. The next steps may not be without challenge at times, but you’ve created the magic. You’ve begun!
Whatever your big dream is, there is ONE step you can take this week toward it. Take it and feel the magic!
EnJOY your day!
