QUICK STORY-Thomas Edison. You know him right? The light bulb guy? No?
Well, teachers often said that Edison was too stupid to learn anything. In fact, he was fired from his first two jobs because his bosses felt he was unproductive. Throughout his life, his peers believed that he would never amount to much. When he first tried to invent the light bulb, he actually failed 1,000 times. However, he didn’t count them as failures. Through motivation and dedication, he was able to invent the light bulb with 1,000 steps.
Should giving up be your last try? Why can’t ‘giving up’ bean indicator of what you need to avoid next time you try?
In life when trying to accomplish or achieve something, people can often take too big a step too soon. The key to growth and progress is to do a bit more each new day than you did the previous day and make small improvements as you move along.
You don’t have to do it all at once!! This is a common misconception, you need to take one bite at a time. To keep you focused on your journey towards success you need to have a captivating and exciting reason ‘WHY’ to keep moving forward every day. This excitement should ignite your spark plugs and provide the power to chug along like a steam train.
A baby learns to walk by taking one step at a time, they stand up walk and fall down, then they rise up again walk fall down and they keep repeating the process over and over with great determination and eventually the baby walks on their own and they can throw up their little arms in ecstasy in celebration of the milestone they have accomplished. Watching this process is truly inspirational.
One positive aspect of starting small is you discover what works and what doesn’t. Perhaps you had assumptions that looked good in theory but when you applied them they did not work out as you had thought. This affords you an opportunity to evolve and discover new ways of achieving your objectives.
The main things to remember in starting small and taking baby steps are:
- Take small regular steps
- Don’t try to grow too quickly
- Make incremental changes and improvements over time
- Don’t try to do too much at once
- Don’t try to jump in one big leap
- Work on one piece at a time improving and evolving as you go, and
- Don’t be afraid to start small.
Have you given up already????
