Achievable reality

Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by all you must do. Let yourself be energized by the progress you can make.

Sure, the task looks daunting before you start. The only way to stop feeling so overwhelmed is to begin.

Begin the task, and you transform it from an intimidating concept into an achievable reality. Make the first phone call, write the first sentence, pull the first weed, walk the first fifty yards, and suddenly you’re doing it.

Even if you’re not sure exactly what that step should be, take the first step. Establish momentum, and soon that momentum is a wind at your back, pushing you forward, adding its own power to your intention.

In an instant, you can go from feeling it can’t be done to discovering how you can get it done. You can go from zero progress to continually accelerating progress.

The road to achievement is just one positive action away. Take that action, get on that road, and follow it all the way to your most treasured dreams.

— Ralph Marston
