Small Beginnings

Category: Motivation

When the journey ahead looks difficult, begin small. When you are not sure of what exactly you should be doing, begin small. When you hesitate and fear whether you will meet your target or not, begin small. When everything seems to have come to a standstill and there is no way forward, begin small.

For there is beauty in beginning small, there is magic in taking just baby steps – and this magic is that these steps do happen. Doesn’t matter how uncomfortable or incompetent or fearful or hesitant you feel, small steps can still be managed.

Tell yourself that you will worry about taking just the next step, and that that’s all you will do. You will make hundreds of small beginnings; you will take hundreds of small steps if required. And you will keep doing this till you feel ready to do something bigger or till you realize your dreams.

Life changes don’t need to be drastic, realizing your dreams doesn’t always mean going over the top. You do your thing and the rest will fall into place. You keep taking your baby steps and the distance will get covered.

You DO. You BEGIN. You take ACTION. You take your baby step. You make your small beginning. And that is all that matters. That is all that is needed.

    Fear of the unknown is something that stops us from venturing into areas out of our comfort zone. But small beginnings help us overcome these. For the simple reason that because you have begun small, the risk of failure is also small. But, if you succeed, you take another small step towards your goal and keep doing so till such time that your target is achieved.
