This is the year to give up procrastination and excuses. This is is the year to begin what you have been dreaming about.
You can make the best most elaborate plans.
But the hardest step to any goal is simply the first.
If you take the first step, the last step will take care of itself.
There aren’t thousands of steps in the fulfillment of your goals, there is simply ONE.
It can often be overwhelming to think of all the elements to your vision. Sometimes you might feel paralyzed by fear, thinking of everything you need to do and how it’s going to happen.
Don’t think of EVERYTHING you need to do. Simply think of the one action step that is right in front of you, right now.
Can you simply do that one action step that is NEXT for you right now?
Perhaps it’s that one phone call?
Or writing that one email?
Or doing one hour of research?
Or walking one time around the block?
It’s often said that talk is cheap. I like to think that talk is in fact very EXPENSIVE. Simply talking about your goals and visions without action will simply cost you your dreams.
Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking everything needs to be in place and perfect plans need to be made before you take action.
Even the best plans will change or go out of the window once you take steps along the path to your vision. As you progress, your goal will reveal to you what is needed next, which you may have not been able to see from the perspective of your first step.
Even when you think you know where you are going, have you noticed more often than not you end up somewhere completely different than you planned?
And it’s often way better than you could have wished for.
So don’t think you know where you are going, even when you think you know where you are going. Stay open and curious about what is seeking to happen.
Then each moment becomes a juicy surprise.
Give up the need to know.
Give up the need for the perfect plan.
Trust Life itself.
The same Intelligence that brought you into this world, knows how to fulfill itself through you and bring about the perfect unfolding of your vision.
But you must start.
Starting is the key to success.
Will 2013 be a year of best intentions and dreaming, or a year of fulfillment and actualization?
The best plans, dreams, intentions mean nothing without action.
The hardest action is often the first step.
Take the first step.
Then keep taking the next first step.
There is only one step on the path to your goal.
Simply one-step over and over again.
