I recently got a message on Facebook: “I want to make a quantum leap. Tell me, Barbara, how do I do that?”
My answer: “Take lots of tiny steps.”
If her lack of response was any indication, I don’t think she liked my reply.
But the truth is, that’s precisely how quantum leaps, colossal successes, radical transformations occur…one small step at a time.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better description of this process than a quote by one of my favorite actresses, Julianne Moore.
“You don’t start out thinking, I’m going to be a star!
You think, I hope I get an agent.
Then, I hope I get an audition.
Then, I hope I get a job.
If you think too far ahead, it’s just overwhelming.
It’s better to just keep on going, bit by bit, one foot in front of the other.”
Amen to that! The most dazzling dreams start with the most trivial activities—looking up a phone number, making an appointment, writing an email.
What small step will you make in the direction of your dreams? Leave a comment below.
