hat you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create. –Buddha
I am sure, everybody experiences moments during which we are unsure, if we are ready to start an activity or not. It could be – for example – our wish to try out a new coffee brewing method. In doing so, we could be wondering whether or not we have all the necessary information and skills to accomplish the task successfully. However, during such moments, our inferior thoughts create a mental blockade.
Thoughts have energy. Make sure your thoughts are positive and powerful. – Anonymous
A good advice is to replace these inferior thoughts with positive feelings, thoughts or actions! After all, feelings, thoughts and actions are all interconnected.
Therefore, let’s force ourselves to just act with a positive mindset. Let’s not overthink by trying to come up with the “right” way of doing it. Let’s not get overwhelmed and let’s be curious about what will happen 😊.
The Law of the First Step
The law of the first step is quite simple. We will never achieve what is possible without taking the first step.
According to the Thought Entrepreneur and Leadership Expert Jon Mertz, the Law of the First Step welcomes the following:
- Take the first step with confidence and curiosity
- Keep taking the first steps to find the right path and insights
- Focus on your lane, avoiding over-comparison to what others are doing
- Remember your purpose is bigger than just you
- Prepare for the zig-zags, caring for self while learning and pursuing
- Recognize the ruts and step up and out to keep your work fresh in learning and spirit
