On Tuesdays, you get a hip-hip-hooray for taking steps for making the smallest of actions towards your health and life goals. We're going to throw in life goals today because hey, it's all tied together. You need a well oiled ship in order to take that adventure to your destination, joy.
And when I talk about tiny actions, I'm talking about stuff that is effortless, so small it almost feels like you haven't done anything at all. But the fact is, you have done something because doing something small adds up over time, and it is better than doing zero like eating one more green vegetable this week or making an appointment to talk to a free adviser at your local entrepreneur center.
Let your fingers do the dialing
You'd be amazed how taking one tiny step could catapult you to new places. Even one phone call or email could change your whole life.
So how about it? Is there a phone call you need or I should say want to make, but fear is standing between you and that call. Here's a simple truth, the only difference between you and someone who has achieved their dreams and goals is that at a single moment like this where a simple phone call needs to be made, the one who goes on to success makes that phone call. They feel the fear and do it anyway. That's it. Simple.
The small stuff can matter in big ways
The road to what you want is paved with all kinds of these small situations like making that one phone call, writing that one email, or submitting that one application. Mentally, we keep telling ourselves that we're waiting for those big breaks, those big opportunities, but really, those big situations come along very rarely, it's the day-to-day stuff that makes the difference and frankly will lead up to those big breaks.
Another way to look at this situation. Picture yourself 20 years from now, and look back to this moment. If an angel gave you a glimpse of what your life could have looked like, what you could have achieved, and it resulted to just making one phone call, how would you feel?
Me, I'd be kicking my own ass. This is how I've been looking at life now. I'd rather try and be rejected or fall on my face, than wonder my whole life what could have been had I just faced my fears and did that one small thing like make that phone call.
And the more you face these type of situations, the better you'll get at handling them. Remember out of school how scared you were at your very first job interview? Now, you can walk into an interview and interview the company instead of it being the other way around. That savvy built up over time.
So what are you waiting for? You can do it!
