Start the journey

When you know that you can do it, you can do it. But how do you get to that point?

How do you know, without a doubt, that you can achieve what you set out to achieve? The only way to truly know is by doing it.

The first step of any journey is always taken on faith. The next step, though, is taken with more certainty and confidence, knowing that the first step has succeeded.

So take that first step, small though as it may be. Once you’ve started moving, you’ll know you can keep going.

Once you know you can do it, success is a matter of taking the time and making the effort. Once you know you can do it, you’ll have access to what you need to complete the journey.

The smallest, most seemingly insignificant success can in fact be quite significant. For it will start you on your way to the best you can imagine.
