Most of us underestimate the power of incremental change over time.

It seems to me that we have a tendency to  think that we must take dramatic steps in order to achieve something significant.

Confucius said:  A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Everything in life starts with a single step.

You learn to walk and you fall.

You learn your ABC and you forget at first.

You learn to add, substract and multiply and make mistakes.

You jump in the pool and sink under until someone teaches you how to swim.

Do you remember learning how to drive the shift stick?

Enough examples…

Why do so many people give up before they even start?

I believe that one of the reasons is that they start with unrealistic expectations.

In fact, so unrealistic that you can’t help but become discouraged.

The solution for this is to set for yourself some realistic goals that you are certain to achieve.

And reward yourself as soon as you reach your objective.

Then aim for another goal A.S.A.P.

Reward yourself again.

Rewarding yourself is very important especially if the challenge is difficult.

Over time, you will look back and realize how much you have accomplished or how much you have learned.

I encourage you to make small, daily investments that will soon lead to big results.

Just like the painter, with each stroke of the brush is getting closer to his masterpiece.

Each incremental change will bring you closer to your overall goal.

Your life will be your own living masterpiece.
