On my walk today, I was reminded that everything in life starts with taking the first step…
Learning and growing requires us to challenge ourselves, our stories and our beliefs on how we see ourselves. So often we fear taking the first step… Afraid of failing and overthinking the worst-case scenario. How often do we miss out on life-changing opportunities crippled by our own fears, negative self-talk and lack of confidence within ourselves?
I have learnt in my own life that everything starts from a core belief within myself first. Throughout the day we have so many different thoughts going around on repeat in our heads. These thoughts set the tone for our present, our future and how we feel about ourselves.
It is important to embrace moments of stillness in your life, to listen to your own life unfold and trust your own inner guidance. When you build a strong relationship and connection with who you are, taking the first step towards positive outcomes becomes more achievable. In my own life I have learnt to build a clear vision for myself and what feels good for my own growth both personally and professionally.
I remind myself daily to embrace a moment of silence, gain perspective and move forward with confidence. No matter the day, the challenges, setbacks or hurdles, keep moving forward one intentional step at a time. Wasting time on thinking about the past, what you could have done, how things could have worked out is a complete waste of time and energy. We can’t go back in time, we can however make the most of this moment.
Believe that you have what it takes to take the first step towards creating an empowered life that feels good for you.
