So. all of us, you know, work day today, in and out of different careers, jobs, family obligations, personal commitments in our lives. And sometimes we forget that making small changes or taking small initiatives actually lead up to bigger things.
A long time ago I read a book called The Slight Edge by Jeff Olsen and he talked about the small choices we make every single day equal out to a consistent change over time. That could be in a negative way or a positive way depending on what those small changes or small steps you’re making every single day amount to. Sometimes we don’t realize that the small steps that we take every single day in our lives will lead us into a certain direction over time and make a big gap between where we want to be and where we are currently because of those small steps that we take every day.
So, I ask you today, “Where are the changes that you are wanting to make in your life?” or “What is the direction that you are passionate about what you are leading yourself into” and How can you on a daily basis make those small shifts and changes to make sure that you get there? Whether it be in releasing of weight, one pound at a time, or just taking vitamins every day, all of these small things add up. You know in our businesses, it could be about a certain ritual that we put inside of our business to make sure that we are doing a certain task every day to align a certain goal that we have there. Like daily social media posting, or follow up emails, it could even be meeting a new person every day. It might even be in our jobs that we are driven to come to work with a smile on our face instead of in a different mood that we could be in. Or how about doing one thing nice a day for someone, kind of like a pay it forward mentality. Hmm… if everyone did that imagine what the world would be like? One small action equally out to massive results.
All of these small little shifts and changes amount to something larger on a grander scale. So, what can you do today to make those small steps forward for you to be able to align what it is that you want in your life and to have the life you are wanting to live? Decide, Take Action and keep moving forward!
Until next time, have a great week!
