You may not be able to see what is at the top of the stairway, but to climb to the top, you must take that first step. Every achievement, accomplishment, and success starts somewhere. Every task, large or small, begins with a first step. That first step can sometimes be hard to take, yet one small step can lead to results you never imagined.
Everything does begin with the faith to take that first step. But when you are contemplating something that is new or is outside of your comfort zone, taking the first step can seem very difficult. Some people let their fears dominate and never take that first step. the fear is not because the first step is difficult; it is the perception that the first step looks difficult. Who wants to make a mistake and look ridiculous, right?
Even when you do find the courage to take that first step toward your Big Dream, there is no guarantee you will find success the first time. Sometimes you take the step and don't get what you wanted. But when you do face your fears and take a risk, you will find it easier the next time, and if you learned from your mistakes you may even do it better.
Taking risks and overcoming your fears is the way to program our subconscious--the more you do certain kinds of things (especially challenging and difficult things), the more you become comfortable with them, and the more they become habit.
