Take the Next Step

February 27, 2009

Many people spend a large portion of their life saying that they want to grow – and I believe them. One of the factors is that many do not know what to do. They stress and strain to gain clarity to find the perfect way or the perfect thing to do. They toil over their approach or their decisions. Simply, they wonder what is the next step?

The next step can look like a number of things. It can range from reading books, reading an article, taking seminars, going back to school, watching a video on You Tube, or simply just meditating or praying while waiting for inspiration to hit. The options are bountiful and they are all around us.

Too many get worried about what they need to be doing. The truth is whatever you feel and believe that you ought to be doing is exactly just that – what you should be doing. It is important to trust God, trust your Unconscious Mind, and trust circumstances. Simply put, trust and use the Law of Attraction to bring the things to you that you need to have or be doing. In fact, if the results are not what you need, you probably need to change your focus and your procedures – it will be obvious.

In the meantime, if you have a preference on a particular topic, follow it. If you feel that you learn better via a particular medium, pursue it. There is no right and wrong set of means by which to do something when it comes to learning and growing, rather the way in which you ideally learn or simply prefer to learn and grow is always the best way. Remember, life is a series of steps that get you to where you want to go.

In many cases, you or someone may really not know what to do. The simple answer is – do something, do anything. It is not as important which step to take, but rather, take the step that you know that you need to make.  Even if you screw up, you can always go back and make a good decision again.  You have a pretty good idea of what you like and what you would like to happen; make it happen.

My only piece of advice comes from Dr. Stephen Covey who simply states to “start with the end in mind” and get after it. This means figure out what you would like to have happen and constantly pursue it – work towards it. Just like any trip, it is always best to have a rough estimate of where you want to go, yet keep in mind that you can always make adjustments as you need to.

Most importantly, right now, just get started, and do what is in front of you in the order of what is most important to you. Eventually, you will learn to quit stalling. Again, for now, strike decisively; get going – take the next step.
