S – step forward (stuck and scared keeps you still)
T – tackle what you’ve been avoiding
A – allow room for mistakes
R – rise up, again
T – time—longer than you want—is essential, so give it
M – mindset matters
O – over and over is how we learn
V – validate the small wins
I – improvement is better than idealism
N – now is the time you’ll later wish you had
G – GO.
Is the whole point to get ahead?
No, because that would just be following the crowd.
But moving forward is the only way to tell fear to take a seat, so you can decide where you stand.
