One of our clients made it her three month goal to get a story published in a reputable ladies’ magazine. “So I went ahead and sent my story to a couple of magazines. The most they could say is no, and I can hopefully learn from them why my story did not get accepted,” she laughed almost spilling the coffee on her short beige skirt.
Over dinner, my mind wondered back to that session. I rested my chin over my clasped hands and thought in silence.
Most beginnings in anything in life start by taking small, even minute steps. The smallest action does have the potential to lead to success.
The initial small action can be the most important first step in the development of your goal.
Everything in life has a beginning, a middle and an end. And daily action, tiny or massive, is what carries you from one phase to the next. Large actions could have you arrive at your destination quicker, but you if you don’t feel comfortable to take that approach, as in the above client, go ahead and take smaller actions. You will still realise your goal.
What idea do you have that you can take small action on to get you closer to your goal?
By the way, she managed to publish a short story in one of the weekly publications!
