The journey begins with the first step
With any new venture, an overwhelming sense of how to begin is commonplace (along with where, when, why, what, and who).
No matter what journey you are about to embark on, just know the position you are in at this moment, may be unfamiliar to you, but it is a feeling that countless others have experienced - as everyone has to start somewhere. The one's who stick with it, prove resilient, strong, and determined are the success stories. As the legendary martial arts adage goes "A Black Belt is nothing more than a White Belt who wouldn't quit."
The first, and BIGGEST, obstacle to overcome is FEAR - False Evidence Appearing Real. The fear of the unknown, the fear of failure, the fear of what others may think - FEAR is an unsettling feeling, but the more you face it, the better at dealing with it YOU MUST become.
As mentioned, everyone has to start somewhere, and there is no substitute for learning, imagining, dreaming, and then experiencing via following through. Experience may be the greatest teacher, but first we must dream of what we desire, and then we must become inspired to take action. Our imaginations are the keys to broadening and brightening the limitless paths of our futures. When we come from a place of love and openness, anything and everything imaginable is possible and then some....If you are stuck in any one spot, or find yourself continuously repeating the same mistakes, and not learning and growing, perhaps it is time for you to take a step back, breathe, and get a New View.
A successful life comes from successful habits.
