There is no one giant step that does it. It's a lot of little steps.
Peter A. Cohen
Often, when we look at the things we really want to achieve/have/do, they can seem overwhelming, because they seem like HUGE things, like we have to make this leap to get there – and we’re terrified, we really want it, but we feel we’ve got to close our eyes, bunch everything up tight and jump off that cliff to get there.
My experience, and the experience of my clients, is that this is simply not true, and Peter Cohen’s quote above explains the truth behind any change that we want to make.
I didn’t go from obese to having a healthy body I love in one leap. Leaving my job at Microsoft and finding work that I love through Path Less Trodden wasn’t about jumping off a cliff. Moving out to Italy didn’t involve me just taking a blind step onto the plane.
Instead, each of these changes, and any change that you want to make in your life, is about taking small steps –  consistent action in that direction. Swapping that packet of crisps for an apple, reading books about authentic living, investigating how much it’d cost to rent a flat in Tuscany.
Each of these small steps moves you forward, motivates you and gets you clearer on what you want.
My clients often ask me how I had the courage to take the leaps I have in my life and I will always say it doesn’t work like that – it’s about small step after small step.
If you have changes you are ready to make in your life and want a visual representation of the steps you need to take look at my article explaining how to just that here.
And then get stepping towards that life of your dreams!
