#ThursdayThought – Think Big, Act Incrementally
Having big goals and dreams are great. Thinking big is the key to success and satisfaction when you embark on the journey.
Yet many people get paralyzed from the huge steps and sacrifices needed to achieve those goals. Much of that paralysis comes from fear, being overwhelmed, or thinking that the big success will come early on.
That’s where the frustration comes in – thinking big and then expecting the big steps to be the result of big strategies, big goals and big actions.
However when you dissect the most successful accomplishments, it all comes down to couple big thinking with smaller, incremental actions.
As they say, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”.
Much like to toddler whose new goal is to get the to top of the stairs on their own, they must still slowly and carefully take those small steps and crawls until they eventually – and through many trials and failures – reach their goal. It took each of us time and patience to get to the top of the stairs when we first started.
Ask any truly successful entrepreneur, whether a small or large company, and they will regale you in stories of building a dream, and organization, but by bit, over time, incrementally.
Don;t get exasperated when your big dreams don’t seem to get results. The best things take time. And in knwoing and grinding through the process of those small incremental steps, not only does your dream come together, so does the leader that resides inside of you.
