We’ve all heard Lao Tzu’s “a journey of thousand miles begins with a single step”. How many of us have actually taken that step? It seems to be all we hear about each New Year’s.
Goals, resolutions, challenges, it’s all we talk about. The past year and the year yet to come. But what about the present? The here, the now? No one is telling you how to take that first step, just that you have to do.
Watching my daughter just learning how to walk I can see first hand how hard that first step is. There’s a lot of falling down on your butt. And a lot of bumping your head. Even some tears every now and then. But pull your self up off the ground and try that first step again.
We don’t have to meet our yearly goals today. So stop trying. Start with the first step. Then the small steps after that. You’ll be amazed how far you can actually make it by taking just one small step at a time. One small step for man…
