I used to think that only big actions could bring me to my goal.

I used to think that only huge steps forward counted.

Fast and forward.

That’s what I needed.


But I used to find myself stuck a lot.  Never far enough. Never good enough.

I used to find myself procrastinating and wasting my time away.

Standing still, unhappy with where I was.

That’s what I got instead.


Then, one day, I made a deal with myself.

From now on, I would take it one small step at a time.

From now on, I would do something every day.

From now on, I would treat even the smallest thing as an accomplishment.


And so I did.

I started doing the little things, taking one small step each day.

I started counting each small action I took as a success.

Because I showed up, and regardless of the outcome.


And all of a sudden, I realised that I was walking.

Steadily.  Empowered.

One step at a time.  Amazed at how far I’d gone already.

One tiny success a day.


Are you standing still because you don’t make the little things count?

What tiny step can you take today?
