I do not know how many minutes had passed. I am not sure if I was dreaming or if it was fear of what happens when you take that step. Suddenly a lady pushes on me and says, “Son, son, if you aren’t going to take that step to go up could you get out of the way?”
Did you ever get that feeling? We all at one point become frozen; the feeling is locking us up. Something is holding us. It could be a dream, or it could be a fear, but something is holding you back and you cannot take that step.
To get to the top of that escalator, you have to make the first step. But this week is not about elevators or escalators. It’s about going to the next level. And it’s time to get out of your frozen place and take the next step.
So often I work with people who need to get up and take action. They are stuck and just need to take some action to get moving. We all want to have that top floor experience. We wonder what it takes to get there, how we will ever get there. The problem is we are all standing still, frozen, from a daydream or maybe a load of fear.
So what is the action that you need to take now? If you ever want to reach the top, you have to take that first step. I hope today that this post is just like that lady who said, “Well, son, are you going to step on? Or get out of the way? The choice is yours.”
