a workable choice), and then made a wise choice, you also became aware of what your first step would be. If not, then take the opportunity now to figure out, "What do I have to do first?" For many people, this means outlining as many of the steps to their Dream that they can currently see, in order to discover what that first step is. If that's what you need to do, great, do it.
But you're not done yet. You must actually do that first step, and when you've accomplished the first step, do the second step, and so on. In the next chapters you'll see how to gather the resources you will need to do those steps. For now what's important is to understand that only as you are taking the steps toward your Dream are you truly committed to it, and thus likely to get there.
A Dream has the power to pull you across time and space to the successful Future you desire, as long as you don't hang back, resisting its pull. Get your feet out of that mud and step up! It's the beginning of a wonderful adventure.
