The journey of 1000 miles begins with it.  It’s the first step.  The very first step.  When babies take their first, they don’t know where all the steps will take them.  They just start walking and see what happens from there.  But the hardest step to take is ALWAYS the first one.  We’re afraid of where the road might lead.  And if we don’t start the journey, we never have to find out.  It’s also what keeps people from changing their bad habits and routines.  We don’t want to take the first step.  Once we get going, we build momentum and get on a roll.  It’s hard to start something when you don’t know the outcome.  But I encourage everyone out there to TAKE that first step.  Whether it be a new exercise program, career, school, whatever.  Take your step and see where you go.  Especially if the journey is a healthier lifestyle, odds are is that that first step will lead you to a better place than you are in.  One single step in the right direction is worth it.  And it often leads to others.  So take it.  Go.  Make that first step on your journey!
