If you are told that you have to stop consuming soft drinks for the rest of your life, you will not be motivated to follow that. But, if you were told to stop consuming soft drinks just for an hour, or for a day you will do it happily.
If you are told that you have to wake up early in the morning just for today, it may not be a big issue for you. But, once you are told to follow it daily, you will pay a deaf ear to it. This is the same thing that applies to success.
We make plans to change our habits or work towards our goal, but we find it difficult as the bigger or long term picture comes to mind, fear takes us over and we stop taking action. But the same thing, if divided into small portions, small goals to achieve in a day or in a week, it seems easy to be easy and we can do it with ease.
If you want to be successful in any task that you do, you need to follow the same principle. If your objective is to become a multi-millionaire in few years, you need to work on it by dividing your goal into small sections and proceed towards achieving it.
So, whenever you want to achieve a goal or want to make changes in your habits break them into small achievable goals and achieve them. It is the small steps that you take, that begins your journey towards success. So, make a beginning by taking small steps and achieving small goals.
