Do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain.

Step by step

Make little improvements and maintain them. Then make more.

You can’t immediately get everything to be perfect. You can’t solve every problem by the time you go to bed this evening.

Yet you can make progress. And every little bit of progress makes a difference.

When the problems seem overwhelming, ask yourself this. Is there some specific something you can do right now about one of those problems?

Instead of focusing on how overwhelmed you are, turn your attention to what you can actually do to make a positive difference. Even if it’s not much, find an initial step you can take, and then take it.

Step by step you can make things better. And better is always a very good direction to be going.

— Ralph Marston
