Advance a little bit

The most realistic route to success is incremental. A little bit now, a little more later, and you can move toward whatever goals you set for yourself.

You don’t have to get all the way there before tomorrow morning. Just make a few improvements.

There’s no need to immediately and forever eliminate all the unhealthy, unproductive habits from your life. Simply pick one, see if you can do without it for a while, and go from there.

Move forward on your own terms, at a sustainable pace. Experience how good a little progress feels, and let it motivate you to keep going.

Some action, some change in perspective, some upgrade in your attitude is well within your reach right now. Make life a little better for you, for others, and you’re well on the way to making life a lot better.

The challenges are many, yet the opportunities are even more numerous. Take one of those opportunities right now, advance a little bit, and commit yourself to keep on going.
