Another step forward

It is not very realistic to expect that you’ll go from where you are now to where you want to be in one quick leap. The most reliable and lasting progress is made one step at a time.

Welcome each step as you take it and reach it. Even though you’re not all the way there just yet, you’re moving steadily forward. Value and appreciate the progress you’ve made, then continue moving on. The next step forward awaits you, and with it you’ll move even closer.

The reward you seek at the end of the path is given value by every step of the journey. Each moment spent is time well spent when you’re moving steadily forward, even if you still have a way to go.

Some steps may be tedious, or complicated, difficult, challenging or uncomfortable. Yet they are all moving you surely toward the place you want to be.

— Ralph Marston
