When was the last time you started something?
When was the last time you created, built or produced anything that you were really proud of?
When you made it happen as part of your own initiative, not because someone made you do it.
When was the last time you followed through on what you said you’re going to do - instead of just dreaming about it and then shying away when it mattered most?
There’s something inherent in you that thrives on being productive.
That thrives on learning and growing
That thrives on solving problems and being meaningfully engaged.
If you’re made in your Creators’ image, then you are by nature also creative – which means there’s something within you that calls on you to create.
Just like you would nurture your body, so too does your spirit need nurturing.
Your body can live, but if your spirit is not properly tended to, you can die a kind of spiritual death.
Merely functioning, without ever experiencing the fullness and richness of life.
The hardest part about starting anything new is going from doing nothing, to doing something.
Going from being passive, to being active and from stationary, to generating that forward motion.
It’s at that point, that micro-moment of either action or hesitation that makes critical difference.
It’s that one single battle that you need to win every single day, in order to be able to create that consistent forward momentum your spirit craves.
You can apply that to the bigger picture, but also to the tiny moments through-out your day.
When you need to go for that walk, your biggest challenge is just getting off the lounge.
The same logic applies to every situation.
So you don’t have to focus on the whole staircase, just on that critical next step, the rest tends to take care of itself.
