Steps along the way

Progress is made in steps. Be willing to take enough steps, and you can get wherever you want.

Imagine walking to a destination that is one mile away. The first step doesn’t seem to take you very far, though if you keep going you’ll be there in half an hour.

When working toward a goal, the intermediate steps may seem tedious and unfulfilling. Yet in reality, they are the very essence of fulfillment.

That fulfillment will be realized when the steps are all taken. Keep going, and the achievement will be yours.

Whether the goal is modest or highly ambitious, taking sure and steady steps will get you there. When you’re willing to take the necessary steps, there is no limit to where you can go.

Though the goal may seem distant, the pathway is not. The first step is right in front of you now.

— Ralph Marston
