Power in numbers

Tiny drops of rainwater are soft as they fall on your face. They yield to the slightest breeze. Yet if you gather enough of those raindrops together, and get all that water flowing in the same direction, it can destroy anything in its path.

Brief, tiny moments come and go all day long. Each of them seems quite trivial and powerless. Yet when you point enough of them in the same direction, by focusing your efforts on a clear and specific goal over a period of time, those moments can add up to a powerful, unstoppable force.

Are you tapping in to the awesome power which you receive one moment at a time? It is constantly available to you, yet you must use it as it comes. It does not linger around and wait for you.

Each moment comes, and then it is gone. It is up to you to use it, to forge it together with the other moments in your life so that you can build, create, accomplish and achieve. Waste your moments, and they’ll seem numbingly trivial. Harness them together and there’s no limit to what you can achieve.

— Ralph Marston
