The Most Important Step

"Spanish Steps" at Rodeo DriveImage via Wikipedia
When we do not pursue very worthy goals, it is often because we think of all the steps we must take to get there.

But the number of steps and their difficulty are irrelevant.  What matters is what we want and the joy we will experience when we attain them.

Many of the most important things in life take a mind-boggling number of steps.  Our educations, caring for our health, building our homes and communities, and even the other lives we decide to create and sustain.

Don't let your mind be boggled.  Focus on the goal and start walking.  You can't even walk a mile if you count all of the steps before you put on your shoes.

So ignore the steps and start the journey.  Think of where you want to go and the happiness that will be yours when you arrive.
