A little success

If you can’t bring yourself to be positive about the big things, then be positive about the little things. That’s easy enough to do, and it can make a surprisingly significant difference.

You’re not going to solve the world’s major problems before bedtime. And yet, you can surely make a little positive progress in your own way, and that can be a big help.

The little annoyances, distractions, challenges and difficulties in your world may seem minor when viewed separately. However, they can all add up to create a major negative drag on your life.

You can easily choose to rid yourself of those little negative influences, one by one. Before long, the positive effect will be dramatic.

If you spend the next few minutes doing nothing except worrying about your problems, you’ll just end up even more anxious and worried. If, instead, you spend that same five minutes to overcome a relatively minor problem, you’ll end up feeling a little more empowered and in control of your own destiny.

A little bit of success will motivate and inspire you, like nothing else can, to create a little more success, again and again. Soon, you’ll discover that those little successes are adding up to a life of big and meaningful achievement.
