Cover the distance

There’s a certain distance between the life you envision and the life you are living. You can make use of today to close some of that distance.

There’s a certain distance between what you know you’re capable of doing, and what you’re actually doing. Right now you can make the distance a little smaller.

The way to traverse any distance is not to curse that distance. Choose instead to cover the distance, as much as you can, as often as necessary.

No journey of any significance has ever been completed in an instant. Cover the distance, a few inches at a time, a mile or two, a couple of days or weeks, as you can.

Between where you are and where you want to be, there is a specific distance. Work to cover that distance by taking specific action, in a consistent direction.

You have what it takes to make the distance less, and then less, and less again. Keep covering the distance, and you’ll get there.
