You Start With the First Step

Motivational Power Quote

 

You Start With the First Step

“Take the first step, and your mind will mobilize all its forces

to your aid, but the first essential is that you begin. Once the

 battle is started, all that is within and without you will come

to your assistance.”

Robert Collier 1885 – 1950, American Author, Self- Help Writer

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

You start with the first step

 

There are those sit and talk about what they are going to do . . . . and there are those who have the courage to step out of their comfort zone.  They take the first step to do what . . . . has to be done to expand their horizon.

 

The first step in the right direction is the beginning of the journey of reaching new heights of opportunity . . . . and to achieve greater levels of success. You will only create forward momentum by . . . . leaving the status quo behind you and by stepping into the possibility zone.

 

The first step that you take may not be a big one . . . . It’s not the size of the step that’s important. What is important is taking the first step. From that first step you will begin to gather forward momentum . . . . By stepping in the right direction you will continually move you in the direction of your goals and objectives.

 

To reach your destination . . . . you start with first step in the right direction and by moving forward . . . . where everything becomes possible.

And it is always referred to as the HARDEST STEP Lou, that first one..... then much easier. Great thoughts.

I made a decision a long time ago to run a marathon. After I made that decision and took the first step and prepared for the next two years, finishing the marathon was pretty easy.

Lou, The first steps are definitely the hardest.  I am working with my agents and trying to get them to start good habits, and it is frustrating when technology or something else fails to work and gives them an excuse to give up.

Very nice message to share with us all. Even beyond that first hard step, another saying that I've heard is that "even stumbling is forward progress".

And in the beginning,  there is that step, that step that leads to the next and the next too.
