Quote of the Day: First Steps


“Take the first step in faith.  You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”  – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Many of us feel the need to plan every step of the way.  We spend all this time planning out every step of the way, that sometimes,  we are afraid to take that first step. Once we see all the possible “what if” scenarios, we grow more and more scared that we will never make it to our goal.

It is very frightening to take the very first steps into unfamiliar territory, but without taking those first steps,  how will we ever get anywhere?

I am a planner by nature, but I never have the need to control.  I am analyst by nature to, but I have a “can do” attitude.

Yes, I get scared … BUT … I do not let that stop me.

If you really want something, go for it.  If you do not reach your goal, it is okay.

Maybe the universe has another goal in store for you.   You just needed to take that first step to see it slowly revealed to you.  This has happened to me several times in my life.  Each time I “failed” a new opportunity came about.

I don’t believe we ever fail,  we just take a different path.  All you have to do is trust in faith and trust in yourself.

Just me,
