It’s encouraging to know we can make massive progress by making small changes to what and how we do things.
When we’re not consistently making progress, we don’t have high levels of enthusiasm to live our best lives. A common mistake we make is to make drastic changes, without preparing ourselves as best we can.
For example, people set new year’s resolutions because they want to change or achieve something. They may start off with a lot of excitement. If, however, they don’t have the right habits or a plan, they’re more likely to quit if progress is slow.
Why is Making Progress Important?
We’re all programmed for growth. If we aren’t growing, it means we’re dying. If we aren’t making progress in life, we will:
- Not experience true joy and happiness.
- Feel stuck or stagnant.
- Not express ourselves fully.
- Not challenge ourselves to dream big or take new risks.
- Stop believing in ourselves and what’s possible for us.
When we’re making progress, we feel alive and excited about our lives and what’s ahead.
Sometimes, small changes over time, is a smarter approach to take, as it can lead to massive progress. There is a Chinese Proverb which says, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
We can make massive progress by making small changes and leveraging the power of the compound effect.
