Are You Still Walking? (Moving Toward Goals)

14 Aug

A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.  – Lao Tzu


It’s true. If you don’t get started you’ll never get there.

You'll just stand there thinking of everything you Could have accomplished.

You’ll just stand there thinking of everything you Could have accomplished.

You will also never get there if you give up half way through.


Then what are you left with?

A long list of shoulda, coulda, wouldas.

  • I shoulda pushed through to the end.
  • I coulda made it big time, if I’d just hung on a little longer.
  • I woulda loved to have seen my book/blog/invention make it to the top of the list.


Don’t do that to yourself.

Keep pushing, trying, striving. (writing, creating, building, etc.)

Keep walking. Even one step a day will eventually get you there.





You can do it. Just keep doing those little things that add up to big things. Then those big things will be done. Crossed off your to-do list! Think of that! A big long line drawn through those words that represent a weight on your mind.

Visualize it.

Your hand, holding the pen as it glides across that big step which had been baffling you for weeks (…months, ahem, maybe even years).

One step down.

Closer to your wonderful, ultimate goal.

Keep at it.

You will get there!

Thanks for not snickering while I gave myself a pep talk.

What are some things you do to encourage yourself to keep working on a project?
