My mother is my biggest inspiration. I like to say that it is from her strength that I draw daily and here’s WHY: she is strong, wise, confident and she never gives up. Last week, she lost her brother (my Uncle) and as challenging as this time is for her, she sounds so brave / strong on the phone anytime I speak with her. Out of the many wise words she would say to me, one I always hold on to and never give up on is this: A journey of a thousand miles start with JUST one step”!
Today, I will tell you the reason WHY you have to take that first step first before you can ever soar…….
“Success is the sum total of small steps taken day in and day out…unknown!
I am of the school of taught that nobody can soar if they do not jump first. Here’s WHY: if you have ever seen an aeroplane take of, it does not just take off, it starts slow, then builds speed on the track / runway and then take off, it then increases its speed as it continues to move…….
See, for you to build speed, you have to take that first step and then continue to walk and then fast enough for you to run and then jump and after a while, you soar provided you are going in the right direction. In life, opportunity may not necessarily present itself to us, in most cases we have to create them and when we do, we must hang in there till we soar.
Creating opportunities or availing of one is jumping. Hanging in there till we achieve our goals is soaring.
So I am here to encourage you today in the wise words of my mother to take that bold step of faith even if you have one more million steps to take. It may look far BUT you will get there. See, when you do not walk, you can never build up speed and when you do not build up speed, you can never run and when you do not run, you can never soar. I encourage you to jump first and you will soar.
What is it you’ve always wanted to do? Start a new course, travel, read a book, write a book, get engaged, start planning a wedding, start a business, start saving money or WHAT? What is it? Now is the time for you to prayerfully take that BOLD STEP OF FAITH, until you do that, you may never soar. And don’t forget that “a journey of a thousand miles start with just one step”.
My prayer for you today is that God will give you the grace to jump and when you do, you will soar. Amen.
