You will remember one of the many Aesop’s fables regarding the Tortoise and the Hare. A timeless fable that probably was passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. A concept so valuable that a story was created as an archetype for powerful instruction to a community of people.
Unfortunately, I never got the point of this story until this last year. No force, no effort, no human endeavor is more powerful then incremental progress. You can try all you want, but you will not reach your goal with one herculean effort, one last ditch effort. At the gas station yesterday, I saw a man spending money buying power ball tickets. He seemed to know that lady at the cash register like a bartender. That $5 a day he has been spending every day for a year hoping to win big, will never accumulate wealth like investing $5 dollars a day with compounding interest. Even nature follows this course. The destructive power of a steady drip of water over time is incredibly powerful.
You can take advantage of this power, simply by implementing incremental small steps consistently over time. That mountain will move, not by a single cataclysmic event that you cause, but a consistent effort over time. You will find that after 365 days of a consistent habit you will be incredibly powerful.
You maybe only a few days into a positive life change, but I promise that if you start small and pick something you can do everyday, you will discover that overtime you will build something truly inspiring.
