Nothing starts off big. The grandest ideas and the most innovative projects all started with a solitary thought that built upon itself and grew into something big. I have to keep reminding myself of this or otherwise I’d find myself quickly discouraged due to the lack of traction I’m making in moving my business, life, ideas forward. Can you relate?
I’m a strong starter and I want to see the fruit of my labor immediately. But that goes against the natural principle of sowing and reaping. A seed isn’t planted into the ground and immediately becomes a tree that bears fruit. No, it must be nurtured in its infancy and given time to grow into the thing it’s destined to be. It requires of us patience and also persistence.
We have to make up in our minds from the start that we will see that project, that goal, our lives through to the end. We have to realize that everything we do is a part of an epic story that is full of new and small beginnings, but destined for a grand and epic ending if we don’t give up.
