Three for one

Select something today that’s holding you back, and take one step away from it. Choose a limitation that’s been keeping you from moving forward, and take one step toward overcoming it.

When you do, an important shift in momentum will occur. You’ll go from being overwhelmed by the challenges to taking control of them.

One step today can get the ball rolling. Another step tomorrow can build on that progress.

Every action you take to overcome a limitation has a triple effect. It reduces the limitation, boosts your confidence, and increases your forward momentum.

For the price of one step taken, you move three steps ahead. That’s a return on your effort that’s well worth getting.

One step at a time is all it takes to eventually move past whatever is holding you back. For when you take that one step, you get three in return.

— Ralph Marston
