Taking the First Step Towards the Rest of Your Life

By April 15, 2017 No Comments

At one point in time, you may take a step back and find that you don’t really like what you see.

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut, to lose sight of the kind of life you wanted to live. Years go by, and you realize that you have been existing merely for the sake of existing.

There has got to be more to life, you wonder, and indeed there is. The power to make your life more fulfilling is in your hands.

Making the Decision

Simply making the choice to take a step towards a better, more satisfying life is a big deal. It is not an easy decision to make.

Everyone feels safe and secure in their comfort zone, fearing just the thought of having to step out of it one day.

Deciding that it’s time to make a move and take that first step is the first in a chain of events that will set the rest of your life into glorious motion.

The First Step Is the Hardest

Blog42Taking the first step—for anything in life—is well known to be the most difficult.

It is human nature to fear change, to be frightened of the unknowns that await you.

However, once you make that first move, the ball will get rolling and it’ll become easier from there on.

Take Action

Your first step is your own, and this step is different things for different people. The key to making your way towards a fulfilling life is to bring change. And to bring change, you need to take action.

Take up new habits and hobbies, or indulge in old passions of yours. Your first step could be as simple as jogging every morning or writing a paragraph a day about anything under the sun.

Don’t Overwhelm Yourself

Don’t take on too much. You’re making a big change; you’re allowed to take baby steps.

Your first step will most likely be a baby step in itself, but it will feel like a giant leap of faith for you. It isn’t about the quantity of the things you do or the changes you make, but about how any form of change can enhance the quality of your life.

One must always keep moving forward—this sentiment is a significant focus of professional keynote speaker Bill Wooditch’s work.
