Your Environment: Vision of the Future–The Next Best Step

…You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step in faith. ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Yesterday we talked about building a strong, vibrant, compelling vision for your future. Sometimes we get stuck on this because we think this means we must figure out exactly where we’ll be in the next five or ten years.

That’s hard, especially when you’re first starting out and don’t really know what you want and, therefore, where you’re going!

This can cause us to stop, fret, becoming overwhelmed and discouraged. We decide it’s too much: too big, too hard, too unknown…. So, we throw in the towel even before we start.

No worries!

As Dr. Martin Luther King’s quote points out, we don’t have to see the whole staircase; we just need to take the next best step. This is the same as the analogy of driving our car home at night. We don’t see the whole route, all we see is 50 or 100 feet of the road ahead that’s illuminated by the car’s headlights. We keep traveling this way and, before we know it, we arrive safely home, even in the darkest of nights.

Build your strong, vibrant, compelling vision of the future that’s just a few days or weeks ahead. As you get better and more confident in what you do want, you can then add to the vision, increasing it by a year or more–what ever is comfortable for you.

You CAN do it! I believe in you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
Lauren
