I’ll bet at sometime in your life, if not right now, you have gotten all fired up about a “great” idea or made a decision to “change” something in your life to only circle back to the same place you were before you got all fired up. Your “circle of life” that simply is now, just as it always has been and looks like it always will be just seems to be your reality. Are ya with me so far? Am I describing anything familiar?
Now we have all been to seminars, read books, listened to audio recordings or in some other way heard all about what it takes to change something in your life. AND It all works doesn’t it? For a while, then again you find yourself back in the same place you were before started it all to begin with. Sometimes change is just too difficult to fit in with your life as you know it.
A Revelation: I was listening to a co worker talk about moving a large pile of gravel, by himself with only a hand shovel and it brought to mind an old saying I had heard most of my life but have no idea where it came from or who said it, so no credits here. Ha! . “How do you eat an elephant? …. One bite at a time!” That was it! Even though moving that large pile of gravel, like eating an elephant, seemed a HUGE task, it is more easily done little by little and not in one huge scoop or bite.
Change does not happen all at once nor does it have to be so difficult that you are fearful of even trying!
If real change is going to happen it must be something easy enough that you believe you can achieve it AND something rewarding enough that you will continue to do five years from now, ten years and for the rest of your life.
Even making one, seemingly insignificant change, if done everyday will add up over time. Small changes to habits that might seem so insignificant that you hardly noticed the change at all will result in BIG changes when looked back on several months later. Soon enough you will see those habits that kept you in the same place every day never to return and those little changes that looked so small become a big part of your everyday life.
So whether is taking off a few pounds, or starting that new dream business you’ve always wanted, nothing will ever happen if you don’t start moving towards it …One Bite at a Time!
