“Start with what you have from where you are”–George Washington Carver
I’m a big fan of the Law of Attraction. It’s how I’ve created all of what I have in my business and life.
And one of the most important things I’ve learned, is that no matter where you’re at currently or where you’re starting from, you can always get to where you want to go.
Yes, it might take some changing and rearranging, but you can absolutely get there. This is a key thing to keep in mind.
Because I think a lot of the time we tell ourselves that we can’t start where we are. That first we have to actually be somewhere or have achieved something and then we can get to where we want to go.
But the truth is, you can get to where you want to go from wherever you are.
Even if you’re nowhere right now.
Even if you haven’t gotten started yet.
Even if you’ve started and then quit and then started and then quit…
Even if you have no freaking clue how you’ll get there or what specific steps you need to take.
All of that (aka: the HOW) will come through to you as a result of making the decision that you will get there, and then being willing to take the first step. Whatever step you can think of.
That’s right–there’s not even an order for the steps. You can start from where you are with what you have right now, and take whatever step comes to mind to move forward. The Universe will always meet you wherever you are.
So, what’s the right step?
Whatever you feel inside is the right step. It’s that simple.
And how you find the right next step is literally to just ask yourself: “what’s the next step?” And see what comes up.
Whatever does, that’s the step to take.
The step may not seem logical. In fact, it may be totally illogical and weird and make you go, “huh? that’s the next step?” but trust me when I say, it’s the right next step. Because you always know.
The blueprint for your success in life is baked into your bones. It’s a part of your DNA. It’s who you are at your core.
All you have to do to access that blueprint is ask, “what’s the next step?” and then be willing to take whatever step comes up. And then once you’ve done that, again ask, “what’s the next step?” and again, take that step.
And onward and upward, forever more.
That’s the secret to success. You’ve gotta trust yourself. You’ve gotta believe in yourself. You’ve gotta be willing to do whatever it takes and step outside your comfort zone.
Sometimes the next step is sitting your ass in a chair and doing the writing. Other times it’s investing in something that will help you move forward. And other times it’s making a choice–even a hard one–to change something that’s no longer working for you.
Only you know what the next step for you is.
If you’re brave enough to ask the question and then take the step, and then keep on asking the question and taking steps, eventually you’ll arrive at your dream destination. And while there will still be more once you get there (because there always is), you will have made seriously good progress on the life you want to be living.
And you can continue to pivot and change directions and you’ll still always be able to get where you want to go from where you are with what you’ve got. Because the answers–the blueprint–are already inside you.
But it’s up to you to unlock it and take action.
Dream life or bust,
