To encourage someone to suck it up and "just take the next step" is not always wise counsel. There are times when people need to know where to place their foot before they take the next step. In these situations, where theirr foot comes down is as important as taking the actual step.
Don't feel pressured to prove to someone that your life is going somewhere. Creating a state of continual motion is not evidence of your spiritual maturity or that you have a vision. It can be the evidence that you have not yet learned how to rest, trust and wait for the Lord to speak before you move forward. Avoid the pressure to perform and you will avoid the pain that comes from making a hurried and unwise decision.
