Starting a Business first Steps

How often in our lives, have we all had a dream or business goal that seems so steep and daunting that we talk ourselves out of ever even taking that first step?  Often, the problem, is that we’re looking at the whole staircase, rather than the first step.

This is a particular problem when starting a business or trying to achieve a new business goal, because we're operting from a place of fear and caution, so we build the staircase up in our minds, to be so dark and impossibly steep, that we can’t imagine ever seeing the top, let alone ever being able to reach it.

So, what do we do? Nothing! We don’t take that first step at all and often we just stay stuck.

But the fact is, that staircase is an irrational fear that’s holding us back and preventing us from ever achieving what we really want out of life.  But, if we don’t face those fears, they become our limits and our limits become the thieves of our dreams.

But, we shouldn’t let anyone, not least ourselves, steal our dreams, so instead of looking up at that whole staircase and allowing ourselves to feel intimidated by it, we need to take things one step at a time.


We need to take the first best step that we possibly can and then the next one and keep going, because, even if we can’t  see that whole staircase, we need to have faith, that each step will eventually take us to the top.

So, my question for you today, is to think about the staircase that you most want to climb in life and write it down.  What is the first step that you need to take?  What is the first, best, step that you can take RIGHT NOW, that will take you towards your goal? 

Then ask yourself:  “Do you want to look back on your life from the top of the staircase, seeing how far you’ve come, feeling proud of your achievements and your stumbles along the way, or do you want to stay stuck at the bottom, fearful of ever taking that first step?”

Because, the only limits that we have in your lives are the ones that we create within our own minds and you will only truly know yourself when you go beyond your limits.
