Take the First Step by Donna McDine

Take the First Step by Donna McDine


Take the First Step


“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.


This quote resonates with me to my core. More than I’d like to remember, I allowed my inner naysayer to stop me in my tracks of pursuing what truly got my blood pumping with excitement. I often talk about slaying the inner naysayer and by taking the first step is certainly moving you in the right direction!


Quieting the Mind


Allow me to walk you through in quieting the mind.


  • Star at the picture above for a few minutes.
  • Close your eyes,
  • Roll your shoulders.
  • Rest your hands comfortably in your lap.
  • Take three cleansing breaths in through your nose and release your breath out through your mouth with an audible sound.
  • Remember the picture of the staircase in your minds eye.
  • As you step onto the first stair, envision the life of your dreams as if it is already happening either in your minds eye or journal it. For me journaling is key.


To help you get started, I am sharing with you what I have at the top of the stairs in the picture above…


“The lake house of our dreams will be our second home. The design is an open floor plan of four bedrooms upstairs and two full bathrooms with an open hallway with views downstairs to the great room of the kitchen and living room on the left side. A workout room in the back right corner with a Reiki healing meditation room in the front right corner. With views of the lake and a pathway cascading down to our dock with two kayaks, Adirondack chairs and fire-pit. An additional bath and laundry room combo between the workout and Reiki healing meditation rooms. With a flourishing Energy of Serenity practice of clients, students and workshops.”
