You Don't have to See the Whole Staircase, Just take the First Step

Last Update: September 26, 2017

I've been thinking a lot about Kyle and Carson's 12 Year Success Journey detailed in Kyle's latest post:

A Dozen Years Later The Future Has Never Looked So Good

Incredible what they have achieved with Wealthy Affiliate in 12 Years and how they are always innovating, always striving to give MORE and do MORE for their members.

Imagine if they had given up after a year or two?

Imagine where OUR WEBSITES will be if we have the same ethos of helping others and we go the distance.

What will your online business look like in 12 Years time?

You don't have to answer that...

Do you think Kyle and Carson knew exactly where they would be in 12 years? Exactly what they would have accomplished?

I think not.

Their business unfolded organically, naturally, over time.

Kyle and Carson noticed what online entrepreneurs needed most at each stage along their journey and fulfilled those needs. One by one.

So my advice is this:

On those days when it all seems overwhelming and you think you might give up...

Take heart. In time all trees bear fruit.

Just take the first step and then the second and the third. And keep at it for 12 years.

The late, great honorable Reverend Martin Luther King said it best...

You Don't Have to See the Whole Staircase, just take the first Step.

Thanks Lauren, as a Planner, you know that you may never see the whole staircase but your plan is that staircase with the vision at the top. That first step is so crucial to living your dream.

Aah, interesting Harvey. And you are so right, the first step is often the most crucial step. Making the decision and taking action.

I would, because of my training put one step in between, strategize or develop a plan, then take action. That plan should be the steps (goals) towards your vision. Dr King Jr.'s saying is a twist on an ancient one that says "The longest journey starts with the first step."
