When Nothing Else Works...
When everything feels overwhelming, when you feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, when a problem you’ve been facing just won’t seem to go away, keep it simple:
Just show up.
We always want to have glorious, heroic successes, wins and changes. The ability to turn our problems into opportunities immediately, without so much as a blink. But big things don’t start big. Big things start tiny and grow.
Tiny actions are sticky. The more you do them, the more they accumulate and combine into massive amounts of change. When you feel as though you have an impossible task in front of you, start with just showing up today.
You don’t have to be a Fortune 500 company by tomorrow.
You don’t have to be the best parent in the world.
You don’t have to be know everything first before you start something.
You just have to show up.
No expectations, no need for being exceptional or trying to be picture perfect today. You don’t need to add 10 more habits to your daily routine. You don’t need to impress anyone. You don’t need to be smarter, richer, famous, successful.
Just show up today.
It’s a simple idea that’s hard to execute, but creates massive momentum in your life.
All you have to do is show up, and the day is yours.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
