When the going gets rough, and it seems like you just cannot take any more, remember — you can take it, you can make it, you can do it. All it ever takes is one step. One step in the direction of your goal. One step away from your troubles. Just one step. And then after that step, another. Anyone can take one step. You can take one step, right now.
You were born to do great things. Every human accomplishment has been attained by someone just like you. Everything that has ever been possible, is possible for you. Whatever you can imagine, is possible for you. Yes, for you. If you are willing to take action. If you are willing to do what needs to be done.
You won’t do it all in one day. It will take time. But you can do it. You can get anywhere you want to go, by just moving toward it every chance you get. Little steps, one after another, will get you there. Don’t waste your time figuring out how to make big leaps. Just keep taking the small steps – they’ll get you there more reliably and probably quicker.
Once you take that first step, and commit to taking the rest, things change. Momentum is suddenly on your side. What one step can you take right now, that will lead you toward the life you want? What one small positive thing can you do? Do it now. And then, immediately look for the next step. Keep going until you’re there.
You have a life in front of you that’s waiting to be filled. Whatever has happened in the past in no way prevents you from filling that life to the brim with positive goodness and joy. Right now is completely up to you. Right now is your time to make a choice. Choose to focus on your positive possibilities. Choose to look upward. Choose to look ahead. Put a smile on your face. Set your sights on your dreams, and know that you’re solidly on your way toward their achievement.
