Think success comes from big, life-changing decisions? Think again. Those small decisions you make every single day are more influential than you realize.
Every decision you make and act on matters. Your daily habits are what will make or break you. You might not notice their positive or negative effect on your life in the moment, but overtime that becomes more obvious.
Lasting success comes from small positive actions compounding over time. No need to stress, this is good news. This means you can take it one step at a time. Focus on mastering each moment rather than the entire day or week.
"Isn't it comforting to know you only need to take a series of tiny steps, consistently, over time, to radically improve your life? Doesn't that sound easier than mustering up some grand show of bravery and heroic strength?"
If you want to improve your life, make consistent tiny decisions that will better you in some way. Try spending 30 minutes less on social media, read 1 page from a self improvement book, or drink an extra glass of water.
Living your dream life is possible. It does take work, but it's not rocket science. Once you acknowledge the power of small actions compounded over time, the sooner you'll be on your way to greatness.
"Since your outcomes are all a result of your moment-to-moment choices, you have incredible power to change your life by changing those choices. Step by step, day by day, your choices will shape your actions until they become habits, where practice makes them permanent." - DH

After doing that, figure out what step you're going to take today to improve your life. As Darren says, "The key is to start NOW. Every great act, every fantastic adventure, starts with small steps. The first step always looks harder than it actually is."
