What is the secret to reaching your goals? I’m going to presume you know what your goals are. If you don’t, do that first. One you know what your goals are, break them down into the steps it will take to accomplish them. Once you have the steps (it’s like that dreaded outline from school, but hang in there, it isn’t that bad). This next part is typically what people fail to do. Each of those steps is a big, overwhelming thing, isn’t it?
Here’s the secret. Take the first step and break it down further into the very first thing you need to do to begin accomplishing that step. Still too big? Break it down even smaller. Eventually, you’ll get it broken down to a small enough step where you say, “I can do that.” Do it. What’s next? Keep doing the same thing over and over until the goal is achieved. You will probably discover your goal was comprised of thousands of tiny steps. Broken down into their smallest components, you were able to achieve your goal. That’s the secret. Keep up the good work!
