Daily Dose of Inspiration – Dare to Move

Journey of 1000 miles starts with one step. ~ Chinese Proverb

It’s time for massive (fearless) action!

Having goals for things we want to do and working towards them is an important part of being human. The path towards our goals may not always run smoothly or be easy, but having goals, whether big or small, is part of what makes life good. It gives us a sense of meaning and purpose, points us in the direction we want to go and gets us interested and engaged, all of which are good for our overall happiness.

Working towards our goals can sometimes be difficult and frustrating – so we need to persevere. If a step you’re doing isn’t working, think of something else you could try that still moves you forward, even a tiny bit. If you’re struggling, ask people you know for their ideas on what you could do. They may help you see a different way. Thinking about different ways of reaching our goals makes it more likely we’ll be successful. If you’re really struck – take a break and then re-read the goal you wrote down when you started. If you need to adjust your goal – that’s ok too. Then have another think about a small next step.

If there is something you can do now (this second) towards a goal, go and do it. Take the time. This post isn’t going anywhere, that is taking action, I’ll still be here when you come back.

  2. I just listened to a podcast with a behavior scientist guest named Jon Levey, he said there is “Winner effect” that gives you energy to go for the next win. He said if you’re stuck, find something you can win at. I like that. Any win gives me the energy to take another step. Thanks for posting.
