The Truth About Taking the First Step

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end”
– Semisonic, Closing Time
The truth about taking the first step is that it's actually the end of another, previous beginning. In other words, the first step is actually the end to our prequel. It's a misconception to think that the first step is literally the first step. You couldn't be farther from the truth...

 What Exactly IS The Prequel?

The prequel is the beginning we ended at the moment we took the first step. The prequel is that moment in life in which we are still that person that is yet not conscious of his/her inner desires.

Since they are not yet conscious of their own desires people that still live in their prequels tend to live their entire lives working in unfulfilling jobs or doing random things to entertain themselves each day.

For the sake of simplicity we will refer to them as prequelers. Does that word even have a meaning? Actually no, it doesn't but let's pretend that it does have a meaning from now on.

Sadly, most people stay as prequelers their entire life. But that is why we are here in the first place-- to end this prequel once and for all.

Believe it or not, we all have a big dream (or dreams) we want to achieve in our lifetime. You can hide, pretend, ignore, puke--- but no matter what, deep down in our hearts we are all dreamers.

How Much Does The Prequel Last?

There is no set time-limit to how much a prequel can last. The prequel starts at the moment you are born and ends at the moment you decide to take the first step.

For some, the first step happens early in life-- while most of us take the first step much later in life. The reason for this is that we are all unique.

Each and every one of us has his/her own personality, views, morals, beliefs, etc. and as such taking the first step will be a different experience for all of us.

Why Does It Takes Us So Long To Take The First Step?

The reason why taking the first step takes us so long is because we are talking about making an absolute decision. Not a lame decision in which you quit in like 2-3 days.

We are talking about compromise, passion and perseverance. Serious business. When we speak of an absolute decision we are speaking of applying our desires as a lifestyle.

"It's not something we can do from one day to another. We haven't truly taken the first step until we make a conscious decision to take a first step that changes our lives-- forever. "

The End Of The Prequel

The prequel ends when we take a proper decision to transform our goals into a lifestyle and stay loyal to such lifestyle. In the second part of this article I'll share an exercise, which I learned from 2 trustworthy websites, that will show you how to clear your mind and take an absolute decision into ending your prequel and starting the story of your life.

By the way, have you taken the first step? How? Or are you still a prequeler? Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in the comments section! Until next time! ;)
