Lasting progress doesn’t begin with leaps and bounds – it begins in smaller steps well intended and taken.
How many times have we told ourselves we were going to start something or stop something or work on something, when the time is right, when we have the right job or mate or circumstances, when we have enough money or the best fill-in-the-blank. Any of those points in our life situations could come now or tomorrow, a year from now or not at all. “Then” can become an enemy of the “now” if we let it – because there will always be another “then.”
Dreams only come true when we’re awake – awake to defining our dreams and knowing we are worthy of them. Awake to the opportunities and teachers all around us showing us the way. Awake to the potential of who we are and allowing this potential to be realized and encouraged.
Our wakefulness begins with the small steps of defining the dream, allowing the courage, trusting others to be there when we need them. Momentum is formed…leaps and bounds follow.
