“…By small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.”(Alma 37:6)
What is your goal?
As I’ve been helping people achieve goals using principles of Rare Faith since before 2002, one thing I’ve seen over and over is the concern that the goal feels too big. The person thinks that they couldn’t possibly do enough to make that big thing happen. But…
What if you didn’t have to do anything big, to make something big happen?
The truth is, big things happen as a result of small actions, and when a person grasps that concept, they stop fretting, and they start doing little things with the confidence that it will be enough, no matter how small the effort.
Take a look at this:
Now, think again:
What is one small thing you can do right now to get yourself closer to achieving your goal?
Do that small thing, even if you can’t see how it will conquer the big problem. You don’t have to know how it will.
Your job is to take a small step in the right direction, and what happens after that may not even be within your view. Movement, progress, and ripples all issue forth out of your one little effort. The more you believe this, the bigger the impact of those little efforts can be.
And one other thing… did you notice how that first domino didn’t even do anything super important?
It FELL! That’s what it did. And it was enough.
So don’t be afraid to fall. Give it your best effort, and it doesn’t even matter if you’re successful. Just take a step forward, and if you fall, make sure you fall forward. Even that can make an impact that is bigger than you may ever know.
What happens out of your fall depends on the image of what you originally intended.
See the end that you intend, imagine how it will feel to accomplish it, and then JUST DO SOMETHING in that direction!
