Small Steps Are Big Idea

Posted on


WELCOME BACK. Oprah Winfrey once said: “The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but on significance and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning”. You need to recognize the fact that success does not comes by accident. It comes from deliberate planning with consistent actions and one of those action is what I called “small action are big idea”. This implies that you do more than what is expected of you, it also means going beyond the limit of your duty. Your goal should always be to exceed your expectation. When you do this consistently, you’ll set yourself apart from the crowd and at that point success is inevitable in whatever you are doing. Don’t be afraid of growing slowly but be only afraid of standing still. Take small steps every day and one day you will get there. No wonder scripture said the steps of a man are ordered by the Lord, when he delights in his way.  And He said despise not the days of small beginning. Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.

A man said there is only one way to eat an elephant: a bite at a time. What he meant is that everything in life that seems daunting, overwhelming, fearfully and even impossible can be accomplished gradually by taking on just a little at a time. If you’ve ever wanted to accomplish something major and you know that getting started can be a bit of a challenge. Maybe you have some idea about what you want but not clue how to get it. Or you sit down to think about everything you have to do and get completely intimidatingly impressive, and feeling incapable of taking the first step. This is a common experience to every great achievers today, and it’s the reason so many people fall short of turning their dreams into reality why because they try to eat the whole elephant in a single bite. No one can eat an elephant on a single bite, it is not possible. It must be in a gradual process because it takes a step to get a to mile.

One very important key to eating the elephant as it’s meant to be eaten is setting goals. Do you have big goals in your life endeavour? Do they seem unimaginable far away and hard to obtain? Well, all you need to do is to start one step at a time. Rohit Arora, CEO and co-founder of Biz2Credit said, “The key to achieving any resolution is to set small goals. Setting a goal of 50 percent growth in a year is noble, but it can be discouraging, a smarter way is to plan smaller, more manageable and less overwhelming growth rates for each month of the year, and by the end of the year, the overall increase for the year may indeed be closer to the target”. He further said, start with where you want your business to be, you may be surprised at the results. Remember, what isn’t tried won’t work. The most important things is to begin, even though the first step is the hardest. Yes, you can only eat an elephant, one bite at a time, failure to do so will set you up for disappointment and total failure.
