Sometimes, taking the first step is the hardest thing to do. We haven’t even started the task yet, but we already are feeling anxious. This usually leads to procrastination and we’ll be unproductive. Most people who want to start their healthy lifestyle have lots of reasons for not taking that first step. They may feel intimidated by friends and people in the gym or group class. They might think they would injure themselves. They are not sure on how to exercise properly. But all of these fears are in our minds. We won’t finish if we don’t get started.
The author Clement Stone said,
“All personal achievement starts in the mind of the individual.
Your personal achievement starts in your mind.
The first step is to know exactly what your problem, goal or desire is.”
The first step may be the hardest, but you won’t get something done unless you take it. Don’t let your fears overwhelm you and keep you from reaching your goals. Fix your mind on your goals and be determined to achieve it.
