Sometimes it’s hard to take a step, even a piece of one, because subconsciously we may be thinking of taking a step as something hard to do; something that isn’t fun at all. But steps come in all shapes and sizes. We’ve called them teeny pieces and tiny bits but there are also full steps, leaps, and bounds.
Perhaps, though, the thought of taking steps, no matter what the size, is what’s causing anxiety. So then, change your vocabulary and the language you use to describe the increments of forward movement you’d like to take.
Re-invent what you call steps in terms of the hobbies you enjoy. For instance if you enjoy dance, think of them as swing dance moves or tap dance routines or whatever type of dance you enjoy. If you’re a knitter, then perl your way to your dreams and goals! Perhaps you enjoy woodworking. Then whittle your overall dream or goal into small shavings and plane your way to success!
Your homework is to rename what you call your increments of forward movement using the language and vocabulary of your favorite hobby or pastime. Have fun with this! Enjoy yourself!
You can do it! Go you!
In the comments section, let me know some of the new names you have for the steps you’re taking.
I’m so proud of you for doing this. This is awesome—and so are you!
