Who do you want to be?

Think about it for a moment. Who do you want to be? What would your ideal life look like? What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? 

What are you doing about it today? Right now? This week? This year? 

Do you have a plan, or are you just drifting?

If you have a plan, are you following through?

If not, what's holding you back?

Is it obligations to family or work? Not having enough energy? Not believing you can get to your desired destination in the first place? Lack of resources (money)? Lack of knowledge?

All of these things can be fixed, but first, you have to decide that you're willing to fix them. To seek answers. To put in the work.

Most of us are overwhelmed by our dreams - they seem so large and far away from where we are now. If we allow ourselves to continue to just feel overwhelmed, we will never reach them, because we will never take that first step toward them.

The key is to think small. Sometimes, really small. What can you do today, no matter how small, to get you a little closer to your eventual goal? Maybe it's just looking up some information online. Expressing your goal to someone else and talking it over. Writing your goal down and putting it someplace where you will see it. If you want to run a marathon and have never run before, you run for 30 seconds today. You'll be able to run longer tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that, until finally you can do it. 

Your dream might take years to achieve. Maybe a lifetime. But that's what lifetimes are for. To strive. To seek. To get where you are going, one tiny step at a time.

All you have to do is start.
