How the little choices we make add up to big differences in life.
Life is made up of small things. From the molecules and cells in our bodies to the little passing moments of time. Our entire lives are the sum of elements, small events, tiny thoughts, beliefs, decisions and actions that add up to become the sum of who we are and what we experience. These small decisions effect the success or failures of our entire lives, from our health, our finances, our relationships to our happiness.
Most people would agree that eating the odd takeaway, beverage or sugar snack now and then is relatively harmless, but those extra calories each day or each week, week in, week out in the long run account for the obesity epidemic our country faces.
The working long hours, putting projects first rather than making the extra effort for a weekly date night or time with the family at first is ok, but in the end can be the catalyst for divorce and major disharmony at home.
Our entire lives are made up of tiny decisions tiny choices that add up to big differences.
And the worst thing is, most people are too hypnotised to the daily grind to WAKE UP and see what is happening. In fact most people numb themselves to stay asleep to this fact with food, television, alcohol and all manner of addictions to escape themselves.
You see, when sending a rocket to the moon, if your calibration is out by even just a few degrees, a few millimetres over the course of the journey of a thousand miles can mean missing the target entirely. The trick is to focus on the goal get started and then make small changes.
Yet most people are focusing on distractions, rather than Being who they want to become. Instead we need to wake up, be mindful, readjust, re-calibrate on a regular basis to stay on track. This will help you feel in control and to keep going when things inevitably get tough.
In time those small actions will add up to a bigger result. Making the time to go to the gym and work out, take some time out to read some motivational books, or spending some quality time with the family are all investments for a better life.
The same is true for every aspect of our lives. Our power is not in some one off heroic action, but in the daily rituals, habits and the sum of our small actions repeated often. Athletes do not become champions by one action, but by thousands of hours of repetition, early morning and late night practice, sacrifice and gruelling dedication.
Life is made up of small things, small moments that add up to make a big difference.
