What is Your Next Right Step?

When you encounter a new decision point in your daily routine, you have the ability to instantly evaluate it. Your instincts immediately trigger a response connected to your past experiences, education, or other lessons. This moment, if captured without your mind censoring it, becomes your next right step.

This instant trigger or blip that many label as a hunch or feeling, instead reveals what’s real. People who experience this blip frequently recognize this feeling as the reality of the situation.

Your ability to move through a situation as it occurs leads you to your next right step, and to achieve the task at hand.

Rather than quickly dismissing what you feel, tap into the power behind these strong thoughts. These thoughts are connected with the reality that crossed your path in the past and bear powerful solutions that will be revealed once you listen to them. These authentic insights prepare you for success by leading you to your next best step.

We make countless decisions every day to move forward in our lives and careers. Unfortunately, the need to make the correct decision often stops us in our tracks because of the many ‘What ifs’ that arise.

‘What if people get angry when I ask for a decision?’ ‘What will people think of me?’

We all want to achieve success in our lives and in our work but are often uncertain of the best first step.

We want certainty, which does not exist. The best thing to do is to trust your own instincts.

  1. The first step is the real difficulty of any journey. The testimonies of those who have accomplished great deeds demonstrate this: the difficult thing is to make the initial move, make the decision, break immobility. We are the ones who can and must decide: give up acting or take the first step by overcoming mediocrity and limiting beliefs.

    • Thank you Aldo Delli Paoli – the first step is the hardest one to take. Once you are on your path, you have choices – to stay, to go left or right, to retreat. This may sound indecisive, yet it improves on immobility. OUr mediocre selves, our shadow careers, limit our success here on Earth.
