SOAPBOX shot in the arm Ep. 5: Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today’s SOAPBOX® shot in the arm is wrapped around a famous quote by Martin Luther King, Jr., minister and social activist.
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
Sometimes, daunted by great decisions, you seek to get it in gear but your stomach drops and you catch yourself hesitating. So, what makes us waiver? What happened to our enthusiasm of leaving Point A? Or the belief that something groovy is just around the corner? Well, it’s still there. If you listen closely, the first step is already calling you. Of course, peeking for straight-up road blocks is the wiseman in you, but too much pausing can cause worry the weak wallflower to surface. AND THEN, it really comes down to a pretty deep question: DO YOU HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELF? Ironically, the horror of standing still then becomes your driving force against the once-intimidating challenge of ONE GIANT STEP FORWARD. So, keep on keeping on in exploring the unchartered territories of your ever-growing vision. Write down your goals and gameplan. Listen to your heart, for it has the power to spark your spirit. Place faith in the ground beneath your feet and choose to explore new territory and vow to not look back.
Never Stop EVOLVING. ~ KD
