Taking the first step is the one we all fear

What is that holds us back from taking that life-changing step?
We dream of starting out own business, working abroad or starting a family, but something deep-rooted stops us in our pursuit of happiness.
Being fearful of the consequences of our actions is what holds us back from true success. Change can make us anxious and we constantly worry about what others may think. Being different can be seen negatively by some, but in fact it is the 'being different' that gives us a sense of personal fulfilment. Our restlessness and anxiety is something we need to embrace. It's what we will look back on and smile about in the years of reflection. The butterflies in our stomach are there not to frighten us, but to encourage us to push forward and make our life one that we want to live.
Take that first step. It will inevitably be the hardest, but it will motivate you to take another, and then another. Just imagine where you could be next week, next month or even next year! A personal journey is always going to have it's twists and turns, and it's that which keeps us all alive and hopeful of our future.
By taking a day trip, a walk in the woods or discovering a new town at the weekend you will gain a new sense of perspective. Somehow, by taking yourself out of your natural surroundings a shift happens. It will give you a feeling of who you could become and encourage you to take the action necessary to achieve beyond what you thought you were capable of.
As a personal and corporate Life Coach I love the process of opening clients minds to the possibilities. You can see them start to breath again and think in a positive and focused way. A way which can only ever lead to personal success!
