Sometimes it all seems like too much. The enormous change you need to make seem simply overwhelming. The road is too long, too steep, too rocky. You sometimes feel like you will never make it.
You can sabotage your journey with that kind of thinking, because it is not the case at all. You are not making the whole trip today. Baby-step-by-baby-step is the way you go.
Becoming successful doesn’t require you to become totally a new person overnight. It does ask you to begin somewhere, anywhere, and do what you can. Whatever you can do is just what you should be doing right now. If that means reading a book and being inspired, or learning a new skill in your business …it’s a start, a beginning step down the road.
Even monumental change is often a gradual occurrence. You don’t see how great the change has been until you walked the road for a while. Then, looking back, you see how far you have come. You must not expect too much too quickly.
Remember this journey is not overwhelming. It is your expectations that are.
