"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" - Lao Tzu
When walking to work each morning, I come across these beautifully inspiring words. They leave me battling with my strengths and weaknesses at the same time. They leave me with the determination of keep moving forth without having to pause even for a single second. But deep down in me, my standard human nature feeds me with the negative consequences of each step I take. After skimming through these words, one side of my brain is fearless of brightening my dreams but the other half is pulling me backwards to stop succeeding. Don't we all have those 'urmmmmm' moments?
Hopelessness and despair at times become our companions but only for a limited time. With each step, we seem to get pulled back by some sort of gravitational force leaving us with anguish. But this is where the real challenge begins. It's the demon that's making you back off, constraining you from succeeding and shining like a star. Don't feel shattered because it's really not worth it. You've gotta stand and keep yourself steady. In order to cover that thousand miles journey you've gotta take that single step. It definitely wouldn't be an easy move but in order to achieve something you've gotta keep moving.
We dream of success, health, wealth and a lot more. These are the things that we don't get overnight; it requires immense amount of effort, strength and hard work. It's more like a ladder that you keep climbing and as you are rising higher, there are likely to be more chances of falling back due to the fear of height. So with each step you take, you're surrounded with fears, risks and challenges. But remember, you've gotta keep moving.
