There are few people in this world who have their life exactly the way they like it… most of us, in fact, often feel helpless to even move toward what we want. We feel “stuck”, “in a rut”, overwhelmed, alone, etc., but we don’t feel like there is anything that we can do about it.
That’s where we’re wrong, though (and yes, I’m intentionally including me… I’ve been stuck in this mindset for a while now). There is something that we can do… and we even know what it is.
Alright… enough build up. If you want to make your life more the way that you want it, all you need to do is pick one area that you want to change, one goal you want to reach. Now figure out one small step you can take to move in that direction.
When I say small, I mean small. I’m talking about a step small enough that you can do it today, and have it take less than an hour. If you feel alone in your life, your one small step might be to reach out to one person today… it could be someone you know, or a stranger. If you don’t like your job, your one small step might be to figure out what job would make you happy.
Even one small step forward makes a huge difference in your mindset, your mental state. It can start to change your whole outlook, not just on the one area, but on life in general. It can start to relieve stress, depression, and being overwhelmed… with just one step.
If you keep taking small steps, one step per day, you’ll soon find yourself a lot further along than you expected. You’ll also start to teach yourself to approach life, and problems, that way, and you’ll begin to notice that your life is a lot more positive, happy… more the way you want it.
This article, by the way, is my one small step for today.
