Your First Step to Success, Now

There’s a popular motivational quote:

“The first step is always the hardest.”success, mindset, think and grow rich, napoleon hill, bob proctor, wealth, finance, lifestyle, riches, money, lebron james, thomas edison, skills, talent, how toBecause many people create excuses and stop before they even get started, this might sound true. But most successful people overcome numerous obstacles before they even begin to gain recognition.

That first step is likely but a memory.

Take for example:

  • LeBron James’ first time shooting a basketball.
  • Thoms Edisons’ first lightbulb design.
  • Elon Musks’ first ambitious project.
  • Steven Spielbergs’ first video.
  • The list goes on…

Their “first steps” were likely not “the hardest.” You might even notice their first steps were probably not all that difficult.

At this point, one might conclude that all successful people had some sort of innate talent or ability. And to some extent this is true.

But what helped launch them to tremendous success was much greater than the sums of their first step and some natural talent.success, mindset, think and grow rich, napoleon hill, bob proctor, wealth, finance, lifestyle, riches, money, lebron james, thomas edison, skills, talent, how to

Fact is, you have a natural talent for something too.

Not everyone is fortunate to find it at a very young age and enhance their skills year after year. This does not mean you should give up.

Then what should you do if you want astronomical levels of success?

Start, right, now.

It is wonderful to set long-term, highly ambitious goals. Even unlikely ones. Those are great to store away and review in the future.  Set those, adjust them, and follow up on them later.

But not everyone can easily see their path.success, mindset, think and grow rich, napoleon hill, bob proctor, wealth, finance, lifestyle, riches, money, lebron james, thomas edison, skills, talent, how to

That is ok. Start now and grab a pen and paper.

Write down precisely where you will be in five years. Your vision can revolve around finance, career, relationship, lifestyle, wealth, and more.success, mindset, think and grow rich, napoleon hill, bob proctor, wealth, finance, lifestyle, riches, money, lebron james, thomas edison, skills, talent, how to

The more precise the better, but if you do not practice this skill of planning your life it can be difficult.

Start building it now.

You also want to make sure if it is highly ambitious, that you can describe how you will get there, otherwise you may stop before you even begin.

Next, write down a few sentences for how each of those five years will contribute to attaining your goal.

Finally, take that one step that moves you forward in year one.

Chances are if it is something you truly desire, you will have already made attempts in the past, and it becomes more about figuring out your next step, then the next.

If it is something brand new to you, the first step can be as simple as reading an article.
