January 1st, 2015: I was sitting at home pondering what my New Year’s Resolution would be. Then, it hit me. In just six short months, I had gained the twenty pounds I swore I would never see again in my lifetime. I’d like to say some dramatic event caused me to binge eat or that I was too busy to find time to exercise, but the truth was I was just plain lazy.
I have never considered myself to be entirely overweight, but I was certainly inching (no pun intended!) toward that border. I was unhappy with myself. I had lost the self confidence I once had, and, overall, I just felt exhausted with life. I decided that day, January 1st, 2015, would be the day I would change my life. And I did. And I did it without some crazy workout plan in mind or purchasing a subscription to a diet plan that was ONLY $400 a month. Instead, I did something so simple any person who is physically able to walk can do. I took one single step.
The famous philosopher Lao Tzu was quoted saying, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
Take a moment, and let that sink in…
One single step is all that is standing between you and your goals. One step. That is it! If you take one step now, you are one step closer to your goal than you were before. It’s such a simple concept that is a very difficult task for so many. Speaking from experience, this one step (that is the most difficult step for most) is also the most rewarding.
As of today, I have not only lost 25 pounds, but I have pushed myself beyond limits I thought I could never achieve. On January 1st, 2015, I was winded after five minutes of walking. Today, I run/walk up to ten miles at a time. Five months ago, if you had told me this is where I would be today, I would have said you were crazy. I am doing it though! I am living, walking proof, that ONE SINGLE STEP can change your life.
This concept can be applied to every aspect of your life. What SINGLE STEP can you take towards achieving a goal you never thought was possible? What SINGLE STEP can you do to mend a broken relationship? What SINGLE STEP can you do to start earning the income you have always dreamed of?
MY challenge for you today is take ONE SINGLE STEP towards a goal or dream you have always wanted. That one step WILL change your life!
