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
I had no support
I had no income
I was suffering the after effects of an abusive relationship
Low self esteem
Sadness to the core
It seemed like my legs were like jelly
But I knew I needed to do.....
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:
Launch my 121 coaching 90 day programme
Become more visible
Build my contact list
And that was it....
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?
