If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.”

-James Cameron

Picture this scenario for a moment as we’ve all had it happen to us at one time or another.

You’ve just recently stumbled upon a new opportunity or endeavor that see as taking you further in life. It could be a new career, moving somewhere, meeting someone who seems like the love of your life or anything else. Whatever or whomever it is, you strongly feel it’ll change your life significantly.

It’s only as you dive in, you realize the pool is a lot deeper than you thought. Almost immediately, you start doubting yourself and keep wondering, did I bite off more than I can chew?

Should you quit or move forward?

That’s when I always think, the best way to move forward is to isolate just the next step.

Feel yourself drowning? Take a deep breath and swim just one foot up. Then continue. Need to write an article and on a deadline? Write the first paragraph. Repeat.

We all have goals and ambitions in life from the time we learn to think for ourselves. Simultaneously, we all feel overwhelmed and lost quite often

In moments like those, never sell yourself short. Don’t ever think you’re not good enough for something.

That said, what is important is practicality and having your feet on the ground while embarking on any endeavor. Reach for the top but reassure yourself that you do have to climb the ladder. The highest peaks are filled with the most steps. But learn to conquer those steps one at a time and you’ll be okay.

Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither are the journeys in life.

Be ambitious about whatever you want to achieve. Just go about it step by step to ensure that you leave no stone unturned.
