Make your Steps Count
By Counting your steps
Before you learned to walk you crawled. Before you walked, you fell down again and again. You received your share of bumps and bruises. At the early stages you were shaky and easily knocked down. From the first step you took your parents counted and celebrated every step. After you learned to walk, before long you were running. Wind in your hair, you’re imagination took you places that went beyond all limits. Over time you lost your passion to run and it become a chore. Walking became second nature and almost effortless. You did it without thinking. You did it, not because you wanted to, but because you had to. There was little celebration along the way.
If you’ve ever found yourself caught up in the day to day going places, doing things, and felt at times lost, wondering and longing for something more, don't worry you’re not alone.
“Progress without purpose & passion only leads to pain”
Here are 3 things that have helped me and others bring back the passion and purpose in their life.
1) Step Up: “Make your steps count” Make new steps and blaze a new trail. In order to experience different, become different, you must do different. Don't step the same way you’ve always stepped, at the pace in which you’ve always stepped. Stepping up hill always requires more strength and conditioning. If you continue to step up, your horizons and views will change.
2) Step Forward: “Count your steps” You can’t manage what you don’t measure. Count the steps that lead you to happiness, progress and purpose. Count the steps that lead you astray. Awareness is the beginning of transformation. To progress you must move forward not backwards. Stepping forward requires vision and faith. See what "it" could be and have a passion that it must be. With each step you take, believe in yourself, your journey and others.
3) Step Aside: “Empower others to step up & walk with you” Be careful not to step on or over others. Be courteous of others along the way. Remember to take others on the journey, but don't forget they have their own trail to blaze and steps to take. Don’t get in the way, get out of the way. Understand each step you get to take with others is truly a blessing. Walk with care and compassion. The steps you choose to take will always effect the steps others make.
