Melissa’s Words of Wisdom
I love setting large goals for myself! The ones that make me reach, stretch, and grow. However, as much as these goals excite me, they can also scare me and overwhelm me at times. I’ve noticed when I get scared and overwhelmed it’s when I’m looking at the bigger picture and getting caught up in the “how.” I can’t always see how I’m going to get from here to there. When I find myself if that fearful and overwhelming place, it’s a great reminder to myself that I don’t need to know all the steps, but rather I can surrender my need to know every little part of how my vision is going to come to fruition and instead focus on taking one step at a time in the right direction. I can continually assess my progress, step by step, and make adjustments along the way. As you go into your day today, look for ways to keep taking baby steps forward. Be present and focus on the task at hand. If you are scared and overwhelmed, you are focusing on the wrong thing! Happy Progressing One Step at a Time!!
