"It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward." --Chinese Proverb

"I always tell my kids if you lay down, people will step over you. But if you keep scrambling, if you keep going, someone will always, always give you a hand. Always. But you gotta keep dancing, you gotta keep your feet moving." --Morgan Freeman

"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."
--Martin Luther King, Jr.  

"The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want."
--Ben Stein  


  1. Yes! Sometimes I become immobile because I get overwhelmed. But I'm amazed by how easily I can snap out of it if I just make myself do the smallest thing towards accomplishing my goal. Plus, it feels so good not to be stagnant.

  2. A lovely post, Rebecca and excellent advice. Having never written anything longer than a short story before, when I started my book I often thought I'd bitten off more than I could chew. I had no idea how long it would take! But you just look at the near goals and step by step it comes together.

  3. By the way, I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a blog award. http://katejarvikbirch.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-liebster-award.html

  4. I love all of these quotes. But where are you? What happened to "L" and "M"? *batting eyes*

  5. Hello, Rebecca! That Martin Luther King Jr. quote is one of my favorites. All of these are motivational! Thanks for sharing. :)

    Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines
