If you don't like something about yourself or circumstances, you must take steps towards changing it. Moping around, wishing for more / better, and hoping that change will fall in your lap is not gonna cut it.

Dreams don't happen while you're in bed (...at least not the real ones anyway). [🙏]

Improvement requires action - and action builds momentum.

Taking Action Steps every day will allow you to reach your ideal, your goals & dreams.

even a little step is better than nothing -- 

"Ten percent of nothing is—let me do the math here. Nothing into nothin'. Carry the nothin'..." - Jayne Cobb, Firefly - 

So what does this look like?

1. An ACTION STEP is something that you DO.

The action doesn't have to be a BIG step -- it can if you want, but a small step works as well, because the point of an action is to take a step in the right direction. A 'stepping stone' towards your ideal.

Eighty percent is better than zero percent.

Journeys in life are just that - journeys. Meaning, you're not going to go anywhere if you don't put in the effort to GO. [👍]

2. An ACTION STEP is something you can start doing NOW.

Otherwise, all you're doing is waiting. Waiting for the right moment, the perfect opportunity, the best circumstances to improve, and for your life to slow down before you start...

Unfortunately, you'll be waiting a long long time for the right moment aka FOR -EV -ER.

The right moment is THIS moment. right NOW.

Because as soon as you start doing, opportunity will show, improvement will come, and balance will be restored. 

3. And The best ACTION STEPS are ones that require BOLD MOVES -

They are weird. And hard, and against the norm, and sometimes even painful.

They make you uncomfortable (at least initially). They make you different.

And they are totally worth it.

All it take is one action step, this day, to change your life. One step leads to another, then another; and then suddenly, you're on your way - improvement has begun, opportunities arise, and you're closer than you've ever been to your goals. [🙌]
