Just Take 3 Steps, Not The Whole Staircase


I was overwhelmed, burnout and totally exhausted


I decided to quit the rat race and my partner said he would support me


Within 3 months he was gone



Just Take 3 Steps, Not The Whole Staircase

I had no support


I had no income


I was suffering the after effects of an abusive relationship


Low self esteem


No energy


Sadness to the core


It seemed like my legs were like jelly


But I knew I needed to do.....


Well something!


I just didn’t know what


Have you ever felt that?


You know when you’re not sure what to do first?


So, I decided to break it down


To make it simple


That was all I could take


Just to take a step........forwards


So I wrote it down......just one sentence


"Start my own coaching business"


Now I had some focus


Now I had a light at the end of a dark tunnel


But just 1 step ahead didn't seem enough


It didn't give me quite enough information or knowledge to know where I was heading


It was like the torch was flickering as the batteries were low


So I decided to plan my next 3 steps


I couldn't face looking 5 years ahead, 3 years ahead or even 1 year ahead


I just needed to know what was right in front of me


So I wrote down my next 3 steps, this is what I wrote:

  1. Launch my 121 coaching 90 day programme

  2. Become more visible

  3. Build my contact list


And that was it....


Nothing more...


I didn’t have the vision or foresight to know what was further ahead of that


This was easy for me to write


It completely stopped my overwhelm


My over 100 item "To-do" List got binned


Doesn't this sound amazing?


Well isn't it too simple?


How, 2 years later does this still work?


How did I get past the first 3 steps?


Once I'd completed the 1st step, the 4th step naturally appeared then I had my new next 3 steps (Steps 2-4)


This happens because once you're working on 1 step, new steps are much easier to see than if you tried to plan out the whole staircase


Once I’d done 1 step the next natural step became very clear


Just knowing these 3 steps helped get me through a time when I was totally overwhelmed and I still use this process to this very day


If you're starting up a new business, study, a new career or trying to balance your life better then try this


I promise you it will work


Just putting one foot in front of the other might be what you need


So, tell me what are your next 3 steps?
