There are many times people think about what they want to do with their lives, and see the change as something impossible. They see the mountain in front of them, understand how long it will take to get to the top, and get so discouraged that they don't even get started.
Although it'd be lovely to be able to just leap to the top like Superman, climbing to the top of that mountain takes a series of small steps. But first, you have to make the decision to move forward.
We won't all get to the top our first try, and that's okay. The important part is that we decided to take a step, and then actually did it. The path will still be there tomorrow, when we're ready to give it another shot.
If you're always looking at the entire mountain, or the ultimate goal you're trying to reach, it will overwhelm you. Instead, look at the small steps you need to take to get there and make attainable goals to work towards reaching each day. Write them down and cross them off as you accomplish them. Then one day, you'll look back and realize you're halfway there. The top is in sight. And soon, you'll be in the home stretch!
