When you have an idea or a desire you want to achieve it takes commitment. I like the one step at a time approach. Others think it is important to focus on where you want to end up and not at all the steps along the way as this can sometimes make them feel overwhelmed with all they need to do. It may even make it difficult to begin as they become paralyzed at even the thought of what they need to do.
Commitment requires thought and action. Sometimes you can commit to a limited version of your entire goal, as the end may seem too far away to see or achieve.
Others may commit to the "end point" first, and process step after step simply as a matter of how to achieve the end point. This analogy is like the mindset of a marathon runner, who's end point is the finishing line, not approaching one km after another.
Also remember that if you falter on your journey that is ok. None of us are perfect and we have to be kind to ourselves. Having crohn's disease is difficult enough as it is without beating ourselves up when we take a wrong turn on our journey to having great health. The side of the story is that sometimes when we are just about to quit we are almost ready to achieve our goal. So never give up.
Just have a vision and work towards it. That is all you can do.
