Pause.
Take a deep breath in. Slowly exhale.
Visualize your goal.
Is it growing as a person? Dealing with anger, resentment, bitterness? Healing from a past pain or trauma? Is it finding a new job? Going back to school? Improving a relationship?

Now imagine you are a year in the future and you’ve taken no steps toward this goal? What emotions come up?

What is one step, one change you can make this week that is a small step toward your goal?
See small changes and small steps get us to big goals. No one ever leaped over a mountain. They climbed it one small step at a time. Overwhelm is a normal experience when facing a big climb. Yet, nothing ever worth anything came easy.

“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:13-14
What do you need to forget? What do you need to focus on? What is the next small step toward your big goal? You got this!
