CHCO Blog - Take One Step at a Time

Release Date: December 1, 2021

I’ve found, including from my own experience, that often we don’t follow our intuition, our dreams, our highest calling, because we are waiting to see if the ending will turn out in our favor. And yet, without ever taking that first step toward our destination (known or unknown), we won’t really ever achieve our fullest potential. If we take just one step each day toward our dream, within a year, we’d be 365 steps closer… if you want to write a book, write one page a day; if you want to take a trip, look up one idea a day; if you want to change careers, learn something new each day about that career change. And at the end of the year when you look back, you will be amazed at how far you have journeyed. Keep heading toward your north star and be open to all of the help you receive along the way. One thing you can be sure of is that it won’t turn out the way you imagined… it will turn out even better if you keep showing up, learning and growing each day. The best advice I can give you is—don’t micromanage your journey… trust your path, no matter how much it twists and turns!
