“One step at a time is enough for me. Impatience is simply a way of beating yourself up” – Susan Jeffers.
Getting anywhere is about moving from A to B, one step at a time. Travelling across distances, be they great or small, involves completing each stage of the journey in order to arrive at the next. In education or work, the learner begins with the basics, one step at a time, progressing as fast or as slow as understanding comes into being.
One step at a time is also possibly the advice we could hear from those guiding us along a personal development path. Each session of inner reflection, meditation or whatever it is we have chosen to involve ourselves in, requires patience for the core message to find its way to our heart.
Being present in the moment, really connecting with all around us, is likewise something to be achieved one step at a time. Rushing forward would most likely mean we miss this moment as we hurtle towards the next one. Whereas, on the contrary, holding onto past events or experiences too tightly can leave little space for things occurring right now to impact on us.
All in all, one step at a time appears to be a universally valid approach, or maybe not. To add your input please leave a comment below.
