Finish the Journey By Taking the First Step ~ Words of Wisdom

A more accurate translation would be "The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet," which reminds me I am standing on the starting line of my goal and it's up to me alone to start the journey.  This proverb has helped me reach many a goal in my life, from money to health to organization.  Tho the journey ahead seems impossibly long, when I take that first step the end seems much closer and doable.

In the financial realm I think of it as "A journey of a thousand dollars begins with a single dollar."  Whether I am longing for a new outfit or a new car, I need to begin where I am standing by cutting expenses and tucking away that first dollar.  And by staying on track and putting one foot, or one dollar, in front of the other I can reach my financial goal.

So the next time you have a financial goal, remember a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and take that first step.  Then with one step dollar at a time you will reach your journey's end.
