DAY ONE or ONE DAY?
I saw this quote recently and it really made me stop and think. It made me think about life and taking action (or not) and the possibilities/opportunities that could bring.
A week ago I competed in our Toastmasters division contest after placing 1st in our local Club Contest the week before that. I was awarded 1st place for Speech Evaluation at the division contest. I’m sharing this story not because it was easy but because I took the chance, the leap & continue to face my fear of public speaking. I have written often about my Toastmasters journey because it’s a testament to taking action on something that is in the back of our minds, despite the fear.
I didn’t want this to be a “One Day” deal…..one day maybe I’ll do this…..maybe one day this might happen….maybe one day I’ll be strong enough….maybe one day I won’t worry so much about what others think…..wouldn’t it be great if…..so I consider it a “Day One” deal. “One Day” is about dreaming but “Day One” is about dreaming AND taking action.
“Day One” is the start of positive change! Whatever that looks like to you. Think of the possibilities for positive change – personal wellness, self development, taking action on a dream (or facing a fear), learning something new, stepping back from people who don’t support/encourage you, living boldly, being “YOU” and loving “YOU”. You’ve so totally got this! Trust me, I still am basking in the fact that I not only joined Toastmasters, but that I am now entering contests. And yes, I am still nervous every time; I just do my best to happily redirect that into focus and strength.
I have many other personal stories about the life-changing power of “Day One“. It all begins with “Day One”. Remember, it’s never too late!
To your “Day One” & the possibilities for you,
