Regular ‘step ones’

After taking one step, the only way to continue is to take a second ‘one step’. Of course, you can not take the second ‘one step’ without first taking the initial step.

Any progress requires, one step and then another, daily small steps, they take us on monumental journeys.

It is all about the small. Big leaps are scary. So the mind plays up and sabotages, it wants no risk to its fragile ego, so it will convince you to do nothing.

The first step is all that matters, and the continuing series of ‘one steps’ or ‘first steps’ will add up to a monumental step but not noticeable enough to the mind for it to sabotage.

Small steps, done regularly = big leaps

Big leaps = nothing…the mind will sabotage it as it seems too scary.

Small steps are sustainable and become habits. Just keep taking them and enjoy the moment of each one. When we only focus on now, on the doing, we stay conscious and thoughts are silent.

We can focus on the doing and not the outcome, which means enjoying the moment and not stressing about the entire journey.

One step now and enjoy it

One step, after another, after another…one step at a time, that is how we can walk the path if we choose to. The path is there light up for us to walk on, we deep down instinctively know it is the path to take, but the mind fears the journey and where it leads, so we choose to stay put. We allow the thought of an uncertain future, which of course is fantasy, to dictate our action now.

If we just take one step and focus on that, then a 2nd and focus on that…that is how the habit forms to walk the path and then there is no longer fear as we are not projecting forward to the outcome, the destination, we are simply enjoying taking one step now.
