Do you feel stuck in the moment? Scared and overwhelmed, not knowing what to do or how to take back control of your life?
You want to move on, but you don’t know where to start. Even if you do, it’s scary to stand at the beginning of a long, challenging journey like working on your recovery or going after your dreams. Like Guy Kawasaki said, “The hardest thing about getting started is getting started.”
If you feel like you’re drowning in the mud, pause for a moment and take a step back. Breathe in deeply and slowly until you feel calmer and clear-headed. Then, get all your concerns, to-do’s and plans out of your head and unto paper. That way, it’s easier to see what your priorities are and which activities you can delete or delegate.
Finally, the ‘only’ thing left to do, is actually doing what needs to be done. The only one who can change your life is you, so stop waiting for permission or that perfect timing that will never come. Just take the first step – no matter how tiny – and you’ll discover that once you get started, it gets easier to keep moving forward.
Take a look at these 12 quotes that will motivate you to take action and get one step closer to your goal today.
