Artist Vincent Van Gogh once said, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”

Sometimes it may feel like you are taking two steps forward and one step back. But that still means you are moving forward.  No matter how small the increment, moving ahead is always the motion that counts.

In order to know which direction to move you must have a plan.  As Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, author of The Little Prince, said, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.”  And the ingredient that must be added next is action.

Some days you will feel like you can’t do anything towards your goal.  So maybe it’s sending one email.  Reading one page.  Asking one question.  But take that small bit of action.

Then one day, all those little pieces will come together and you will find yourself where you never imagined you might be.  At the top of the mountain.  At the job of your dreams.  In the relationship of a lifetime.  As the mom of a miracle.  As a change-maker and a trailblazer.

Never believe for a moment that you can’t do it.  Never accept that you are not enough.  Just close your eyes and envision yourself where you want to be. And before you know it what you envision will no longer be a vision statement.  It will be your reality.
