I break big projects down into smaller bits. When I start to feel overwhelmed, I focus on small daily wins. I set modest goals that I know I can accomplish. I increase my confidence and build my motivation. Each victory inspires me to keep trying.
I treat myself with kindness and compassion. Change can be uncomfortable. New habits take time to reinforce. I am gentle with myself as I keep moving forward.
I make concrete plans. I identify my top priorities and align my actions with them.
I enhance my health and fitness. I buy exercise equipment I can use at home. I take a trial spin class online.
I strengthen my relationships. I do something kind for my partner, like cooking their favorite dinner or giving them a foot massage. I listen to a friend who is feeling burnt out.
I continue learning. I browse through the electronic resources at my local library. I practice playing a new song on the piano.
I advance my career. I volunteer to serve on a high-profile committee at work. I listen attentively to my coworkers and look for ways to help them reach their goals. I ask my boss for feedback on my performance.
I cultivate my spirituality. I meditate and pray before breakfast. I start a journal to help me track my daily insights and resolutions.
Today, I make big progress a little at a time. I take baby steps that add up to giant strides forward.
- What is one new habit I want to develop?
- What happens when I push myself too hard?
- How can I keep my eye on the big picture while taking baby steps?
