“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
Have you ever looked at your goals in terms of leaps and steps? Maybe you should.
Most dreams in life, no matter how big or small, have to be worked for. Luck or whatever you want to call it, along with other factors out of your control, play a part. But hard work reaps its own rewards.
Let’s say that you wanted to become an actor. Well, that’s not going to happen overnight. You have to take small steps toward getting there. Attend acting classes. Study great actors. Make as many connections as possible and keep up to date with everything going on in the industry. With enough small steps, you might take a giant leap and get your first break.
This example can be applied to any number of circumstances. With any leap, there’s usually a risk involved, even if that risk is only a substantial portion of time and money invested.
When planning to put together a blog, I didn’t just leap into it. I have done that before and learned from it. Rather, I spent a number of months preparing for it. I made steps each day towards making it happen, whether that daily activity was preparing a post (ie committing an idea to paper), doing research into setting up a blog or all manner of other things. Ideas need momentum if they are ever to become something more than just a thought.
