The only step that ever counts is the next one.
So many times we find ourselves at a place where we just can’t see how we’ll ever get there from here. Sound familiar?
This is exactly how I felt when I set out to lose my excess weight. The truth is I didn’t know how I was going to do it. I only knew I had to get started and I had an idea as to what direction that should be in.
Many times if we look at the entire task of what needs to get done it can be very discouraging but if we can take it down in bite size pieces it’s a little easier to handle. And though we may not always know the entire way to get to where we’re going at any given point, you only need to know where to place your next step. Remember the scenery always changes after each step and new opportunities will arise and new decisions will always be around to be made. You don’t have to figure it all out at once. I always find that when I try to do that, it’s all too easy to get stuck in overwhelm and not do anything.
People so often ask me how I lost over 100lbs and I tell them I didn’t lose 100lbs. I don’t think I could have done that. I let go of one pound…over one hundred times.
So…what is your next step? What direction do you need to go?
