Why is it that no one wants to focus on losing 1 pound or finishing 1 task?
Why don’t we celebrate when we finish cooking one family dinner or successfully putting our children safely into bed one more night?
Worse yet, is that not only do we not focus on or celebrate the small accomplishments, we often discount and negate them. AM I WRONG? How did you respond the last time you crossed something off your to-do list? Were you elated and giving yourself a silent pat on the back or was the excitement short-lived as you looked at the 37 other tasks staring back at you?
If we want to Fear. Less. we must give ourselves credit for the small things.
You don’t have to throw a party, but you can if you want. I won’t stop you. Every day you take another picture for your 365 project, or choose a healthy meal instead of fast food, or sit down for five minutes to read your child a story, it matters.
When I issued this week’s challenge to complete, write down and share 2 statements, it may have seemed like something small. What difference does it make, you may have thought. You might have completed the statements in your head, but didn’t want to write it down or share it. I’m telling you it makes all the difference in the world.
It’s the small things that make or break us,
that bring us to completion or leave us always waiting,
hoping and wishing the stars would align so we could get started.
I’m just saying, if you want to see your life change and your dreams come true, harness the power of small.
