It's not how big, it's how consistent.
Two months ago, I set a goal for myself to consistently send email newsletters everyday for the next sixty days and the day before yesterday, I achieved it.
Even though the goal seems small and I gave myself no reward for it, I felt so fulfilled because I achieved it.
Right now I am so charged up to set more goals and achieve them intentionally. There's something that is now reminding me that if I can achieve that goal, then I can achieve another one I set for myself.
Many people will think it’s a small goal and anybody can achieve it so they need not put so much effort in it but that's where they get it all wrong.
When most people set goals for themselves, they are usually very unrealistic about it. A person who is not earning six figures and above monthly would set a goal to buy a brand new car in two months time without getting any loan. How?
The reason why many fail is not because they cannot succeed, it’s because the success that they think is success is too unrealistic.
Why not start small? Set a goal for yourself to consistently take a thirty minutes walk for the next thirty days. Do something really small but for a long period of time.
What makes the difference is not how big the goal is but how consistent your actions are.
So set goals with that consciousness. It’s not how big, it’s how consistent. Start small and keep being consistent with that small thing.
Remember, it’s a single step when consistently taken overtime that sums up to a mile. That’s why the journey of a thousand miles starts with a step.
Keep that in mind please.
I’ll see you in tomorrow's newsletter,
