The Secret To Getting Ahead Is Getting Started

The Secret To Getting Ahead Is Getting Started. -Mark TwainWhen we look back on life, many of us think of all the opportunities we missed or projects we never took to completion. Regret and hindsight can bind you in chains that are hard to get free of.

There is always a “What if?” or “If only…” don’t get sucked in to the past. Right now we can reset ourselves and ask a new question or make a new statement, like “What small step can I do today to get me started on my project?” or “I’m going to start ____ today.”

Now is the time to let go of the past. Start today taking small steps to make your life better. Life can’t change until we make a start. We can think about getting started but that still does not make any progress. Baby steps are all that is needed. Just keep moving forward and you will begin to see progress. As you make progress, you will feel better about yourself.  Your life will start to get better because you are taking control and making the things you want happen.

If you fall back into your old way of thinking just tell yourself “that was then, this is now, and I am going to do this one small step right now to get my progress back on track.

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.  -Mark Twain
