I used to ride a tricycle around a cul de sac. A few years later I did an Ironman.
I used to have crippling stage fright, spending night after night practicing my speech in front of my family. But I’ve since spoken to tens of thousands of people, on stages right around the world.
I used to be stuck catching little white water waves on my surf mat. Now I’m learning to surf again.
Here’s the thing:
We all start “somewhere”.
Maybe you’re not as fit as you used to be, or want to be.
Maybe you want to write a book, but you don’t know how to get started.
Maybe you’ve failed before.
Maybe you think you’ll never get where you want to go – that the things you want seem too hard, too far away, too BIG to accomplish.
But, how do you eat an elephant, my friend?
One bite at a time.
This is what I teach inside my School of Champions course:
Whenever you feel overwhelmed by your goal, whenever it feels impossible – stop thinking about that big, end result.
Just think: what’s the one small step I could take today?
Baby steps, my friend.
It doesn’t matter where you’re starting from, or where you are TODAY. You can get wherever you want to go by focusing on those baby steps.
