Growing up, I understood that I had to use large steps or undertake major actions in order to achieve a goal. Now being “under tall,” large physical steps was quite a challenge! I really couldn’t take what seemed to me to be “giant steps.” When walking with my tall friends, I’d sometimes use three steps for every single step of theirs. That was until I realized I could ask them to slow down!

When I slowed down and used small steady steps, I still arrived at my destination. That perception shift became a metaphor for my actions – physical, spiritual, and financial. By taking consistent small actions I methodically achieve my goals.

What small action can you take today toward your goal?
