Be Not Afraid of Growing Slowly; Be Only Afraid of Standing Still – Chinese Proverb
Sometimes we don’t take the necessary steps to make positive changes in our life because we are overwhelmed by the enormity of what we believe it will take to get there. What we may fail to realize is that any change is made up of individual steps, taken one after another, that finally lead us to the top of that “‘mountain” we thought we’d never reach.
You may not know right away exactly what that step is, or how long it’ll take to get there, but by moving forward and trying something different you at least have the possibility of a new outcome. If you stand still all you have achieved is the guarantee that everything will most likely stay the same.
It’s okay if the step you take is tiny and you may not always feel brave. Don’t stop because you feel lost and conclude that you are forever “stuck”. Sometimes you need to put one foot in front of the other and just move. Who knows, maybe you are closer to the top of that mountain than you think!
