One of the quotes I love to share with my clients is:
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
No matter what kind of goal you have: financial, health, dream vacation, etc., it begins with a single step. A baby step, as I like to call it. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when we look at the big picture: pay off the car, lose 100 lbs, or go on a cruise. I’ve noticed for some people it seems so daunting that they don’t even try. That’s when it’s time to break it down into manageable steps.
First, take out a big sheet of clean, white paper (or your favorite color) and jot down all the steps you need to take to reach your goal. Second, choose the very first step that must be done. Third, do it! The first step doesn’t have to be big. The best part of taking a step is that you are moving towards your goal, which helps build your confidence. Then the next day, take another step, and the next day another one, and another one until you’ve done it!
You’ll find as you take baby steps day after day, your confidence will improve, your overwhelm will decrease, and you will feel better.
