One Foot In Front of the Other

So lately I’ve been having these flash thoughts– doubting my ability to do certain things. Thoughts like– “it’s too hard,” “maybe I’m not cut out to do this,” maybe this is not for me.” They don’t linger because I immediately squash the thought. But I’m curious why this is coming up…and what I can to do about it.

TéO: “Stay focused on the doing. Stay focused on the process and not the outcome and be consistent with your activity. Be mindful of those thoughts but don’t condemn yourself for having them. Simply bless and release them and support your inner child to be happy and confident in what she is capable of doing.

Remind her that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and that everything challenging has been overcome by simply being in the activity needed and doing it without being too focused on the outcome.

This is what it looks like to have complete faith in the activity that you are called to put forth.”

I think back on my days in New York. I had no idea how I was going to accomplish the milestones that I did. I simply put one foot in front of the other and forged on. Trusting that the work I was doing would yield results. And it did. Just one foot in front of the other.
