Your next step

In any undertaking, the first step is vitally important. Just as important, though, is the next step.

It’s great and exciting to make a strong start. Yet what really makes a difference is continuing the effort after the initial excitement fades.

Success is achieved not just by taking the first, impressive and exciting step. Success comes from taking the next step, and the next and the next, until the work is done.

Today is your opportunity, with each thing you’ve started, to take the next step. Today is when success is built.

The next step may not be as glamorous as the first step or the last. Yet it is precisely that next step that will take you from the hopeful beginning to the successful finish.

Honor your commitment by taking the next step. The path to success is here and now, so keep on going and make that success yours.

— Ralph Marston
