Take the First Step

Sometimes things can be overwhelming.  Taking on a new task or setting out to accomplish a new set goal can be intimidating but if you learn how to focus on taking one step at a time you will get to the finish line quicker than you know it.  Imagine you want to take a trip across the U.S. from New York to Los Angeles but you are driving in the dark.  You can only see ahead of you as far as the headlights allow.  But you know that if you just take one turn at a time and stay on the road to your final destination you will make it there.  Apply this same concept to achieving your goals.  Maybe you are saving up for a down payment on a home.  Your goal is to save $50,000.  That is a lot of money but it is attainable.  If you break down the goal into smaller increments then you can focus on saving $1,000 at a time and that seems more reasonable.  Before you know it you will be closer to the full amount and closer to buying your new home.  Stay focused.  Stay positive.  And keep moving forward.
