The first step

The first step is difficult and it is also powerful. Take that first step, get yourself going, then keep going.

Once you take the first step, you’re invested. Once you take the first step, you have momentum working in your favor.

Make the transition from intention to action. Go from the concept of achievement to the reality of achievement.

No matter how much or how little prior experience you have, the first step will give you more. It will focus your experience, your skills, your thoughts and actions on a specific objective.

Going ahead with the first step sends a message to yourself and the world that you are serious. You’ve gone beyond merely wishing, or wondering, or planning, and are taking solid action.

Take the first step and feel the powerful difference it makes. Then carry on with ever-increasing momentum until the job is done.

— Ralph Marston
