You light up the room with your joy and your unlimited kindness. You make a difference. Every day the small steps you take to move towards the life you’ve always wanted, those small steps are like the first steps on the moon. Small, hesitant but life-changing, the significance is immeasurable and infinite. Keep moving forward.
My Friend, this letter is just for you…
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin.
Friend, Once Upon a time, I used to believe that small actions didn’t make a difference…
Now I know small actions make all the difference. Now I know that starting small is the best way to change. Starting small is the best way to go big.
Friend, have you heard about the 1% rule?
I didn’t think that writing for 5 minutes a day would make much difference. I used to write for an hour and a half every morning. But then life happened. So now it’s 5 minutes a day. But 5 minutes a day means 1 blog post a week. 1 blog post a week means 4 a month. This means 52 blog posts a year. With an average of 800 words per blogs that 41,600 words a year (or half a novel).
You can’t succeed in something overnight. You can’t change your life in one day. But if you can improve by 1% each day, if you can commit to working on something then 1 day adds up. It compounds. It grows. It becomes life-changing. Take the pressure off yourself don’t read 1 book a week, read a page a night. Read 2 pages a night. 1% improvement. 1 % action.
So, how do we change the end of the story?
Compounding actions have an impact. Daily habits. Repetitive forward motion – that’s how we change the ending. We show up daily. We commit only to the 1%. You can do that.
Show up. Be consistent. Small actions change the world.
