Day #184: Every Little Step Counts Towards A Greater You

If everyday you do 1 little thing, or take one step which scared you, imagine your growth over a period of 6 months or even a year. It would be exponential! A few months back I wrote a blog about stepping it up 1% each day for 365 days (read it here). It all starts with the something small, but even if that one small thing seems impossible at the time, you are still conquering your fear. Step by step, they will all add up. 

Setting yourself a daily quota to do something will enable you to more likely stay dedicated. Examples:

  • “Do 20 math exercises a day”
  • “Read a textbook chapter a day”
  • “Write 500 words a day”

Or if it was something that scared you:

  • Talking to one new person each day
  • Asking for a discount whenever you make a purchase 
  • Telling someone new each day that they look beautiful

Make this a priority for each day for 365 days. Or even for the next 6 months.  Then you need to just evaluate what this can do for you. Remember make sure you pick something realistic.

I say keep it smaller to enable consistency.

My question to you is… what are you going to do about pushing, challenging and training yourself to further stretch and grow? Put it this way… As I have blogged before, if you increment by 1 each day for 365 days. By the end of the year you have done 66,795 push ups in a year. Now that seems quite intense.. But how about pushing yourself just to the end of the year.

Think of it like investing your dollars. The more you put in over time the more it grows in the long run.

What will you do to push yourself?
