Everything big starts with something little. Nothing great is create suddenly. Nothing can be done except little by little. Never decide to do nothing just because you can only do a little.
People who think they are too big to do little things are perhaps too little to be asked to do big things. Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Within a little thing lies a big opportunity. Small things make a big difference; therefore, do all that it takes to be successful in little things.
One of the most frequent prayer I pray is this, “Lord send small opportunities into my life.” I know that if I am faithful in the small things, bigger opportunities open up to me.
You will never do great things if you can’t do small things in a great way. All difficult things have their beginning in that which is easy, and great things in that which is small.
One of the major differences between people who have momentum and those who don’t is that those with momentum are growing by taking advantage of small opportunities. The impossible, many times, is simply the untried. Here is some of the best advice I’ve been given: “Do something!”
The beginning is the most important part of any endeavor. Worse than a quitter is anyone who is afraid to begin. Ninety percent of success is showing up and starting. You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.
Don’t be deceived; knowledge alone of where you want to go can never be a substitute for putting one foot in front of the other. Discover step by step excitement. To win you must begin.
The first step is the hardest. “That’s why many fail-because they don’t get started-they don’t go. They don’t overcome inertia. They don’t begin” (W. Clement Stone). Don’t be discouraged. Little steps add up, and they add up rapidly.
Dare to begin. No endeavor is worse than that which is not attempted. You don’t know what you can do until you have tried. People, like trees, must grow or wither. There is no standing still. Do what you can. “it is always your next move” (N. Hill).
