Lou knew that the first step in anything can be the hardest. It will be no matter what you try, but if it weren't so hard would it mean so much to us?

The Beginning Can be Difficult

“Don’t be afraid if things seem difficult in the beginning. That’s

only the initial impression, the important thing is not to

retreat; you have to master yourself.”

Olga Korbut, Soviet Olympic Gymnast, Winner of 4 Gold Medals

and 2 Silver Medals


As I see it . . . . . . .


The beginning can be difficult


I can think back to . . . . the experience of learning how to ride a bike as a young child . . . . I can still remember getting up close and personal with the side walk many times before I learned to master riding a bike without falling.


With determination a child learns how to master riding a bike.


Sports were no difference . . . . trying to master the skills of playing a sport was not only difficult . . . . it takes both time and persistence to get better and to master the sport.


I can also remember my first time on a computer as an adult trying to understand Word Perfect. The beginning was more than difficult . . . . it way closer to a nightmare with your eyes wide open.


As with any new undertaking the in the beginning it can be difficult . . . . It’s in your determination and persistence that you learn master new things.


The beginning can be difficult . . . . with persistence and focused efforts you will reap the benefits of overcoming the difficultly.

Thanks Kathy for re-blogging something from Lou. Often starting something new feels like climbing a steep embankment which can sometimes lead to a wonderful vista.
