QOTD #10: Just Take the Next Step

In today’s quote of the day, I share Martin Luther King Jr’s inspiring quote about the importance of getting started. In most cases, showing up is 80% of the battle. In showing up, we don’t have to have it all figured out, we just need the courage to take the very next step.

“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

-Martin Luther King Jr.

As someone who struggles with the paralysis of over-analysis, it’s vital that I remind myself frequently that I don’t have to account for every fear or anxious thought I have about a given task before I move forward.

Regardless of what it is that we’re attempting to accomplish, it’s possible to plan, strategize, and tease out the details of every possible barrier we may face in trying to accomplish our goal that we talk ourselves out of even trying.

It’s in these moments that we have to remind ourselves that we don’t need to be able to have a clear picture of the end in mind in order to take the very next step.

Whether, you’re a stay at home mom wanting to start a podcast, a mechanic that wants to turn your side-jobs into a small business, or you’re a person stuck in a toxic relationship because you’re too afraid to be alone, you don’t have to overwhelm yourself with every detail; you just need to muster up the courage to take the very next step.

Rapid Manifestation Acceleration: Focus on Inducing States, Not Acquiring Stuff

When it comes to speeding up our manifestation process, it’s extremely liberating to know that we can eat the “carrot” now without EVER having to chase it, in the first place. Many of us, when we first set out to begin manifesting our desires, we make the mistake of focusing on what “carrots” we want…

3 Levels of Awareness: Understanding This About Others Changes Everything!

To a large degree, our emotional intelligence grows in lock-step with our ability to properly see situations and circumstances through the lens of perception. Perception is awareness but it isn’t complete awareness. Our individual perceptions are merely an angle of awareness, but those perceptions don’t give us the full picture. When it comes to accurately…
