  “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step”. – Martin Luther King Jr.

This is my first official blog. I wanted to ask you a question- Are you ready to take the first step? Let me give you an example which will help you understand the question a little better.  When I wanted to start this blog Imagination Breathing it wasn’t easy it took me months before I put my fingers on the keyboard and wrote the vision I had for Imagination Breathing.

What was holding me back was not the lack of  ideas but “fear”, fear of failure. If you too have the fear before you decide to take the action, hey, you are not alone. The key to overcome the fear of failure is to take the first step to do what you really want to do.

“Our mind can play nasty games with us, especially when we are alone”. Take courage and play the game. Many people will help us but at the end the final decision to take the first step and be happy rests upon you.

Let’s make our life count. Be who you truly are and believe you have the ability to live a life of joy and prosperity.

Let me conclude this blog with a saying from Nelson Mandela. “There is no passion to be found playing small – In settling for a life that is less than one you are capable of living”.

Thank you,

Write your views in the comment section. I believe “Your Insight may be just what someone else needs to have a breakthrough”.

  2. I believe that taking the first step is not easy at all because fear of failure, fear of others talking about us and so on..Yet am sure many take the risk of first step and then it becomes an amazing experience of our talents,intellectual,creative abilities etc. Important is measure of happiness. Nice blog😊


  3. I feel that it takes courage to take a chance in taking that first step..and also the willingness to take the risk despite all odds….
