How does a person get to the top of a mountain? One step at a time.
Success in life comes in stages. Where you are now is your starting point. Where you want to be is your vision. How you get there is your mission. Most of life’s successes come from doing the right things every day while being aware of long-term goals. Progress may come in small increments at first. This is natural when adapting to a new way of looking at your life. This is the purpose of the Action Plan, and it’s why it is so important for developing and implementing your personal Action Plan. The process of mapping your progress will help you stay on track. Seeing advancements and improvements in your life will empower you to stay true to your goals and dreams. Change may seem small, but larger successes are supported by the actions you take on a daily basis.
If you are not growing, you are falling behind. The number one motivating factor for most people is seeing their efforts making a difference and improving their lives. That is when it’s OK to give yourself a pat on the back for the commitment you are making to challenge yourself and your willingness to change when necessary.
